REVIEW:

Wet Willie Wails!, July 11, 2003
By Thomas Comiskey (Out in the toolies) - Amazon Customer Review
I saw Wet Willie live about a half dozen times back in the 70s - They are one of the best live acts I have ever seen -- they always used to put on a helluva show. "Left Coast Live" is a classic -- the other live album they did --"Drippin' Wet" (recorded about 1970) is also a classic -- in fact, I like "Drippin'" better than "Left Coast Live" I listen to either one of them and I'm a kid in my 20's again --lots of good memories. "Left Coast Live" is good stuff. Buy it.

This Wet Willie recording came along after several excellent studio recordings. While not quite as strong as Dixie Rock or The Wetter the Better, the guys more than proved their ability to wander out of the studio and jam. They were definetly not your average southern rock band. No No No and Teaser which were staples from the Wetter lp still sound fresh and Grits Ain't Groceries was much funkier than other well known white soulsters. Everything That You Do is one song that never got its due although this overblown live version is not nearly as good as the studio version. This would certainly be a good overview for someone just discovering this band. Now if they will just release Mannorisms.
