Diggin' Uncle Q Live by NRBQ    

By Various Artists                    


This is the second volume of live NRBQ from the same weekend in 1987 that produced the "God Bless Us All" album. Half of these tracks were recorded at Toad's Place in New Haven; the other half at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence. To keep things "honest," the audience wasn't told that the shows were being recorded. The unpredictability includes a karaoke version of Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are" (over a prerecorded backing, natch), a hot version of the rockabilly classic "Rocket In My Pocket," and more.

1988's Diggin' Uncle Q is NRBQ's second consecutive live release, recorded largely in Providence, Rhode Island. Given their über-bar band aesthetic, the live setting typically represents the Q at their best; it's where their rock and R&B roots really shine through. This set -- which includes the fan-favorites "Rocket in My Pocket" and "It Comes to Me Naturally" but otherwise focuses on new material -- is no exception.
