Artist: Travers & Appice Release: “Live At the House of Blues” Label: Escapi Music Date: 7/15/2005 Genre: Rock Rating: 6.5
Like blues artists of the 1950’s who stayed on the road playing the “chitlin circuit” throughout the 1960’s lots of classic rock’s stalwarts are still out touring today. Bands such as Mountain, Blue Oyster Cult & Derringer, continue playing small venues to appreciative lifelong fans and younger listeners who have picked up on them in retrospect.
