Nils Lofgren – 3 Show/2 Disc DVD
It better have Keith Don’t Go on it. Say it has Keith Don’t Go on it.
Ahhh, it does.
Right then, Nils Lofgren. He’s got a spanking new DVD out. It’s called Cry Tough and it covers three different and separate live performances from the bescarfed one. Each performance was filmed at different eras in Lofgren’s career and could be an interesting indicator of how (if at all) some of his songs and his style has altered over the years. A back-to-back viewing of these three shows, over two DVDs could make for an intriguing experiment. Or, you could just pop them on with some friends and crack a couple of beers. Whatever floats your boat.
The performances were filmed for Germany’s Rockpalast TV series. Rockpalast have had some great artists play for them over the years. I first became aware of them almost 20 years ago when a (then bootleg) VHS copy of a Rory Gallagher show found its way into my VCR and I’ve seen some great stuff from them since.
The performances here are from 1976 (when Nils had just released his fist solo album), 1979, and 1991 (freshly returned to solo work after a long stint with the E Street Band). Plenty of classics are covered, including of course, Keith Don’t Go.
Pop to Amazon and pick yourself up a copy. Nils Lofgren – Cry Tough
Or simply enjoy Nils playing Keith Don’t Go.
I’m not obsessed.
