Not many artists can make a live recording so remarkable, but Joe’s performance here is so bold, impassioned and beautiful that this record (and its parent tour) will still be talked about in decades to come.
I feel privileged to have been present for this wonderful performance and it confirmed my belief that Walter Trout remains one of the greatest blues guitarists alive today.
Nothing short of a testament to Walter’s enduring passion, ‘Alive in Amsterdam’ is a joy to listen to that will leave you smiling for hours after – it was a pleasure to review and it should be the very next album on the list of any serious music fan.
Roll on the next tour, because, judging by the raucous reception he received in Nottingham, it can’t come soon enough.
