Twelve of Popa Chubby's most inspired blues and rock excursions culled from live concert performances in France.The DVD release features a different program, interview and extra footage.– by Blind Pig
Coming off his two-volume tribute to Jimi Hendrix, Electric Chubbyland, Popa Chubby is still high on rock & roll. While his love of the blues remains strong and dominates a handful of the tracks here, Deliveries After Dark features more heavy metal thunder and hard rocking than usual. The furious "Sally Likes to Run" captures that arena rock feel with enough cowbell to keep Christopher Walken happy while the title track crunches like Deep Purple in "Highway Star" mode….
Here is, now, « The years with Popa Chubby », including the best of its past ten years from the first recordings (The First Cuts) to the latest limited live series (Wild). A vitamin packed collection of 16 re-mastered recordings that have pleased fans since the day they’ve discovered the King of the New York City Blues.
Over the course of his career, Popa Chubby hasn't exactly grown. Instead, he's found his formula and he's sticking to it, thank you, no matter what anybody else might say. That's probably why he didn't quite cut it as a major-label artist – there is a market for his competent, muscular blues-rock, just not a large one….
Maybe you didn’t think blues-rocker Popa Chubby was the type to offer poignant social commentary, but title track “Back to New York City” – and arguably, most of this album – is a rocking response to a full decade passing since the 9/11 attacks…..
Incredibly, as Popa chubby has improved over the years on guitar. Already the first notes of the CD show: here a musician has grown together with his guitar, so that you do not know who there plays with whom.On this album, Hendrix is celebrated, what must be also the claim that there are countless cover - versions of his hits, so it must be shown as something "Special".
This works playing chubby, for each track is garnished with guitar solos, which, in particular on the two live - slices, to true orgies degenerate ("Little Wing" or "Hey Joe"!). Since the one or the other sound, which makes but absolutely nothing is times because the intensity, with the chubby Hendrix plays and feels, can simply not always properly articulated.
Big, Bad and Beautiful - this recorded in the spring of live double album summarizes what Popa Chubby has achieved in the past decade. For ten long years, it is already here that Popa Chubby released a live album. This double live album includes hits from Popa of 'Booty and the Beast' to his anniversary CD 'I'm Feelin' Lucky '. The 27-song live work of Chubbfatha was in March 2015 recorded in France during his' I'm Feelin 'Lucky' tour on which he was accompanied by a great team: Dave Keyes (Keyboard), Francesco Beccaro (bass) and Andrea Beccaro (drums). As a special treat, there is an impromptu mini-set of the band with some Rolling Stones classics. A definitive live release of 55s guitar heroes from NYC!
