Cold Flame - Live at The Witchwood
Cold Flame - Live at The Witchwood represents a double album of live blues rock material recorded at the renowned Witchwood Club in Ashton Under Lyne, Lancashire. Featured on the album are several tracks from the band's first two studio albums - On Thin Ice and Stormcloud - as well as some previously unreleased original material and cover versions of a few stage favourites. Musically the sound is familiar blues rock territory with a focus on guitars. A year later and the band had added flutes, violins and keyboards to the overall sound in moving towards prog folk rock whilst still retaining their blues background but back in the mid '90s guitars always took centre stage. Taken direct from mixing desk tape recordings and carefully edited earlier this year at Tiny Studios in Hyde, Cheshire by studio engineer Ian Burke, the recordings cover a period in the mid 1990s when the band regularly headlined the prestigious Tameside venue. As such very little of these recordings have been altered other than a few key edits so what you hear is how the band sounded at the time. Further information on this release has now been posted in the albums section.
The first cd features recordings from 1996 featuring the five piece band line up of Pat Rowbottom on bass guitar and vocals, lead guitarists Dave Conner and Dan Hall, Keith Bonthrone on drums and vocals and singer Andrew Mellor whilst the second cd features the same line from 1997 minus Dave C who seemed to be on vacation a lot that particular year.
The double album 'Live at The Witchwood' is available via the band website Shop.
