Georgia Satellites, The - Lightnin' In A Bottle: The Official Live Album [2LP] Limited Red & Black Smoke Colored Vinyl
Limited Red & Black Smoke Colored Vinyl!
Double vinyl LP pressing. Live archive release. In 1988, The Georgia Satellites rolled into Cleveland, Ohio for a blistering Monday night at local watering hole Peabody's, formerly the punk haven Pirates Cove. With Open All Night giving the band a second album to draw on, their salty, wide-open Chuck Berry riff'n'roll was full swagger - whether drawing on their reprise of the Swinging Blue Jeans' "Hippy Hippy Shake" from the Tom Cruise film "Cocktail," Joe South's swerving "Games People Play," George Jones' "White Lightnin'"or Jerry Lee Lewis' all-out "Whole Lotta Shakin'." Delivering an 18-song masterclass in roots, rock and raunch, the Satellites not only incinerated "Battleship Chains," "Railroad Steel" and "Can't Stand The Pain," they led the beyond SRO crowd through a shout-along of "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" threaded with a brazen stripper grind on the Rolling Stones' "It's Only Rock & Roll." Fans of reverb, thrashing drums, the rush of rock & roll momentum and all manners of electric guitars giving it over to basic 3 chord rock & roll, Lightin' in a Bottle retires the jersey. As the southern equivalent of the Replacements, the Ramones hillbilly (redneck) little brothers, no band delivered as much balls as the Satellites, who've never had an official live record. For a band who leaves it all onstage, that seems wrong.
