Lonnie MACK - Attack of the Killer V, Live 1990
Recorded live at Fitzgerald's in Berwyn, Illinois on December 14-16, 1989.
All songs written or co-written by Lonnie Mack except for "Riding The Blinds" (Nix) and "I Found A Love" (Pickett, West & Scofield).
Full Descriptionappreciative throng at FitzGerald's in suburban Chicago, Mack cuts loose the way he so often does in concert, sticking almost exclusively to his Alligator-era tunes ("Satisfy Suzie," "Cincinnati Jail," the tortured soul ballad "Stop") and never looking too far backwards.
By Bill Dahl. AMG.
In 1990, Mack returned to Alligator to record a live blues-rock album, Attack of the Killer V, featuring two extended guitar solos and expanded renditions of earlier studio recordings. From one review: "This disc has everything that a great live album should have: a great talent on stage, an exciting performance from that talent, a responsive crowd and excellent sound quality...This is what live blues is all about!"
