Alex Chilton - Live In London - Encore Edition 2XLP White Vinyl!
Double white colored vinyl LP pressing. This Encore Edition of Live in London marks the first time anyone beyond the hardy handful at the event has gotten an earful of Chilton and crew's first night at Dingwalls. The 14 songs making up the original Live in London were taken from the second night, when the shoeless rocker and his new British buddies had gelled more fully into fighting shape. All of it presented a greasy, ground-level picture of where Chilton's heart resided at the time, delivered with an earnest derangement roughly akin to Captain Beefheart's early funhouse-mirror distortions of the blues. Chilton may have arrived in his pajamas, but he came to rock. Live in London confirms that his mission was accomplished.
This enthusiastic and erratic set of live performances from rock ‘n’ roll’s perennial imp of the perverse, Alex Chilton, marks the first time anyone beyond the hardy handful who attended the first night of his U.K. solo shows will get an earful of Chilton’s distorted stock of Memphis psychobilly at its best.
