J.D. CROWE 'Live in Japan' ROU-0159-CD
A welcome re-issue of an album previously available only in Japan and out of print even there. This is taken from a live Toyko show in April, 1979 when Crowe's band included Keith Whitley & Jimmy Gaudreau. Whitley's work here is some of the best he did on record during his stay with Crowe, more relaxed and natural than his studio recordings. A good mixture of material, well done.
