Blues Pills - Lady In Gold Live In Paris album review

Blues rockers party like it’s 1969 on double live album

Cover art for Blues Pills - Lady In Gold Live In Paris album

Blues Pills have spent two albums and numerous EPs locking down the whole Janis Joplin-fronting-Blue Cheer thing, so it was only a matter of time before they fished the double live album idea out of the dustbin of history.

Lady In Gold Live In Paris does a grand job of recreating the old days. Inevitably it’s signature song Devil Man that takes the honours, but elsewhere the band sensibly keep things punchy; only one track, heavy-duty groover Little Boy Preacher, tops the seven-minute mark.

Dave Everley has been writing about and occasionally humming along to music since the early 90s. During that time, he has been Deputy Editor on Kerrang! and Classic Rock, Associate Editor on Q magazine and staff writer/tea boy on Raw, not necessarily in that order. He has written for Metal Hammer, Louder, Prog, the Observer, Select, Mojo, the Evening Standard and the totally legendary Ultrakill. He is still waiting for Billy Gibbons to send him a bottle of hot sauce he was promised several years ago.
