CITY BOYS ALL STARS/Blinded by the Night: Someone had the fore sight to run tape when the band that had Blue Lou, Lew Soloff and Bones Malone among it members got back together for their first gig in 17 years. Ah, the upside of tech! Get the Letterman band, the SNL band and let them get back in touch with their inner white boy funk that networks probably asked them to hem in and you get a killer show band set that peels it all back to when music was music instead of merchandise. Killer stuff by a killer crew that kills throughout. You might have to be a listener of a certain age to fully appreciate it, but brother, this stuff is infectious for all ages.
