BILL WYMAN'S RHYTHM KINGS Live In Berlin
R&M RAMVD0016 (2005)

The former Rolling Stone continues to have a lot of fun (or at least it sounds it here) with his big band playing ríníb, if occasionally at the MOR end. Still, if you like your rockíníroll at the easy end, this is top stuff.

Kicking off with a band intro, ďI Got A WomanĒ is an up tempo R'n'B number with a soft mix. With Wymanís soft sounding bass well up, itís a full sound, before you add the horns. ďJump Jive And WailĒ is late 50s rockíníroll.

With nods towards soul, rockabilly and blues, itís a fun set. Covers of tracks by Lonnie Donnegan, Ray Charles ,Beatles, Chuck Berry and Motown, itís a good mix.

Yes it is at the MOR end, which will please the middle aged market more, but with that in mind itís still well worth exploring.
