More than 40 years into his career, Chris Farlowe proves he can still deliver a superb show with this live performance, running just over an hour, that captures the '60s/'70s U.K. soul legend near top form. Farlowe is still a soul shouter with the best of them, even if he has to make a few concessions to the calendar at age 66. The key to his success, ranging through material from across his history (including one original, "I Don't Want to Sing the Blues No More"), is that his voice has held up, and he still feels the music inside. And some of the songs represented here, such as "Out of Time," actually work better than they did in their original recordings – Farlowe has, fortunately, outlived the worst excesses of some of the periods in which he recorded, and has lived to put down updated (and upgraded) renditions of various chunks of his history, with a solid lean and mean band.
