Hearing Bob Daisley dig into the lengthy improvisations on Live in Germany ’75 is a refreshing reminder that epic concert jams were once the norm. Covers of Willie Dixon’s “Homework,” Don Nix’s “I’m Going Down,” Robert Johnson’s “Dust My Broom,” and Sonny Thompson’s “I’m Tore Down” provide the framework for deep musical explorations, and Daisley rips through the material with an assured mastery of the blues form. He covers a lot of ground on the fingerboard, but it’s all done tastefully. The musicians’ interplay—and the living, breathing music that unfolds for your aural pleasure—is simply top-notch.
