Paul Rodgers & Friends “Live at Montreux 1994”

(Eagle Rock) Rodgers is obviously Classic Rock royalty, his vox is as dependable and recognizable as Plant’s, so a grand live album with special guests seems like a reasonable audio excursion. And save for a few moments where he gets uncomfortably bluesy. this is really fun. Brian May’s guitar magic is always welcome and Neil Schon and Luther Allison contribute to the great chunky guitar sound necessary to match Rodger’s muscular singing. I will go as far as to say it’s not even corny during the crowd participation portion of “All Right Now.” Maybe niblet-y, but nort full on corny. And I predict 2012 will prove to be the year that the world REALLY comes to appreciate Rodgers if Queen actually tours with that American Idol reject.
