RICK ESTRIN & THE NIGHTCATS

YOU ASKED FOR IT..LIVE

2014-06-23

In 2008 guitar God Little Charlie Baty left the band leaving the bands front man vocalist and harp great Rick Estrin to lead the Nightcats into their next chapter. The first job was to find a guitarist who could fill Little Charlie's shoes. Kid Anderson who had been working with Charlie Musselewhite's band proved to be the perfect fit. This live disc brings to life 25 years of Nightcat classics and crowd favorites. Rick's storytelling, unique sense of humor and red hot harp are featured on tracks like "My Next Ex-Wife", "Smart Like Einstein" , "That's Big", "Dump That Chump" & "Don't Do It". The explosive playing of Kid Anderson on guitar, Lorenzo Farrell on bass and keyboards as well as drummer J. Hansen rounds off the Nightcats. You Asked For It showcases one of the worlds greatest blues bands in their finest hour and is one of the greatest blues live discs ever recorded. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
