It could have poured, but it didn't. And a freshly turned 70 year-"officially old" Ian Hunter could have phoned it in, but he didn't. Instead, he and his superb band kicked out the jams Wednesday night to a strong-in-numbers and appreciative crowd in the shadow of Battery Park City and what was once the World Trade Center.
Starting with 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' he pulled songs from most stages of his career, including a few choice Mott The Hoople tunes. However, despite a rousing
encore of 'Saturday Gigs/All The Young Dudes', the song of the night - no question - was the title track from his new album, 'Man Overboard'. It just might be his best song ever and it's no fluke, as the new album - out July 21st, and previewed here on North Fork Sound - is chock-full of classic Hunter tunes.
Finally, one of the people I went to the show with, Ed Hamell (of Hamell On Trial), has a new dvd coming out soon. Check this trailer:
