Description

George Thorogood & The Destroyers: George Thorogood (vocals, guitar); Bill Blough (vocals, bass); Steve Chrismar (guitar); Hank Carter (saxophones, percussion); Jeff Simon (drums); H-Bomb Ferguson (maracas).

Recorded at The Cincinnati Gardens, Cincinnati, Ohio on May 23, 1986.

George Thorogood was always better as a live performer than as a studio act. This concert set, recorded in Cinncinatti in 1986, captures his newly expanded Destroyers, their sound beefed up with the addition of a second guitarist and (a la Bo Diddley) a maracas player. As usual, the band's great, ungodly racket owes as much to '60s garage rock and punk as it does to Muddy Waters.

Thorogood, who sounds like he's having a great time, blowtorches his way through familiar songs by Elmore James, Chuck Berry, and the aforementioned Diddley. He also resurrects the Hollywood Argyles' early '60s novelty "Alley Oop" and turns in a hilariously melodramatic performance of his ode to alcoholic solipsism, "I Drink Alone."
