Album review

Nils Lofgren - Nils Lofgren Band Live

Unsung, under-rated but undeterred, Nils Lofgren goes on making exquisitely crafted melodic rock just as he has done since his days with Grin and Crazy Horse. A double live album recorded at the Ram's Head Tavern, Maryland probably isn't going to convert anyone, but it's a fine showcase for his guitar-drenched heartland rock on such classic Lofgren compositions as "Two By Two" and "White Lies". Neil Young, Lou Reed and Bruce Springsteen have all employed him. Why the rest of the world doesn't get his talent remains a mystery.
