I found this disc used for a mere 99¢ and actually debated whether or not it was even worth that much. To my surprise and
delight, this disc is quite good. Recorded live in NYC, the album features the drum talents of Jason Bonham, son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, and a proficient backing band. Vocalist Charles West has a gritty voice that sounds like a cross between Robert Plant and Nazareth's Dan McCafferty. Bonham, the son, does and excellent job of emulating his father's style. With the possible exception of the vocals, the whole show sounds like it could have been an actual Zep show. I suppose some would frown on this, but I enjoyed it.
