DAVE HOLE ‘The Live One’
(Provogue Records PRD71412) (2003)

Dave Hole is a slide-guitarist par excellence, having toured with Gary Moore awhile back and this album marks his first live release after eight studio albums. In a word this album is smokin’! Three shows make-up the live songs on this release.

Dave Hole has a rough and ready voice that suits these blues rockers well and the slide playing is simply breathtaking at times! ‘Jenny Lee’ sets the stall out nicely, plenty of slide breaks in between the verses. ‘Keep Your Motor Running’ is a straight ahead blues number with Hole adding little solos here and there. Dave Hole is well supported throughout by Roy Daniel (bass), Bob Patient (keys) and drummers J Mattes and Ric Eastman. Couple of covers in the twelve minute epic‘Bullfrog Blues’, which despite its length keeps you listening, and Hendrix’s ‘Purple Haze’ with Hole adding his own little touches to the solos.

Cracking album for fans of blues rock, containing a clear sound throughout. The CD goes someway to capture the live feel but nothing beats being at a gig!


Review by Jason Ritchie

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
