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.

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.
