SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES - Jukes Live At The Bottom Line [Promo Live LP] (1976)
This is a wonderful artifact of the early days of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. This concert, from the Bottom Line in New York City, was actually a live WNEW-FM radio broadcast from October 17 1976, that occurred shortly after the release of the band's debut I Don't Want to Go Home. Five of the tracks are from that album including a terrific version of "Fever", and "You Mean So Much to Me" with Ronnie Spector sharing the vocals with Southside just like on the studio version. The real highlight though is "Havin' a Party", undoubtedly the most recognizable tune. This completely reworked version of the old Sam Cooke classic became an FM radio staple in the late seventies, and is still a regular part of Southside's shows. Also included are three additional covers which don't appear on any other Asbury Jukes album: "Searchin'" (the old Coasters tune), "Snatchin' It Back" (previously done by Clarence Carter), and the Junior Wells tune "Little by Little". The CD also features Southside Johnny's wonderful and legendary stage patter, pontifications, and harassment - probably the best examples on any of his official live releases.
Originally this was a non-commercial promotional album exclusively for radio stations. Prior to 1996, this was not commercially available as a complete set until the entire album was finally officially released as a Japanese import. While out of print for several years, it was re-released in 2010, and is now available at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend it for any Jukes fan. - amazon.com
