    His band is like an extension of him...Guybo's bass playing and Gene's drumming. They sound like the record, but more excitement. Something that is missing in most of today's sterile live performances. Dave

    Love the capoed bass on Don't Blame It On Me.
    Well done show, surprisingly good audio for the time.
    Good little band for sure, they are rocking.

    Yep, I love the recordings of this concert and have watched several times. The band is putting it down! C'mon Everybody has such a mean groove! I don't think the audio quite does it justice. In the room, it had to have been just awesome. This is when rock and roll was dance music. My theory is that if your band didn't lay down a heavy groove, your band didn't work!

    I was playing along to Three Steps to Heaven at the weekend and whilst I’ve been travelling this week I’ve been listening to a lot of Eddie Cochran.

    What’s surprised me is the very poor production of the recordings. Compare and contrast Buddy Holly, Elvis or even Bill Haley and the Comets of the same era and the recordings seem much stronger.

    I’m not questioning Eddie Cochran’s clear talent but I’d love to have heard him recorded in a ‘modern’ studio.

    :) Peter

    Big fan of Eddie Cochran for many years. What a talent. Gone way too soon. One things for sure, rock n roll is here to stay!

    Thanks for the great thread teleman
