Robert Gordon
Cadillac Lounge
December 5,2009

Last show of the year, great way to wrap things up.

Caught Robert this summer when he came through with his all-star band for a stop at the Legendary Horseshoe.

This show is a bonus.

No Chris Spedding though, and that's a shame. The Royal Crowns provided adequate back-up in his stead. Lead guitarist Danny Bartley wasn't shy about filling space, bringing a new sound to some songs and paying homage to Chris' arrangements on others. Drummer Teddy Fury had a little trouble finding the tempo early on but once he decided that 'play faster' was the call of the day, found a groove that put a little more ooomph into some tunes, especially Fire. Bassist Jason Adams slapped up a storm.

A shakey start to the evening and a loose end. Perfect bar-night. Technical difficulties and a few between-song lulls were overcome by the 6th song of the night. Just when he was hitting his stride it was time for a break. The audiences' attention span never really got refocussed but the band played on.

This is my ninth RG show in the past few years and I still got a handful of new songs; Sweet Nothings, Rock Therapy, The Fool, Dreaming and Blue Christmas were all personal debuts.
