CARLA OLSON & MICK TAYLOR - Too Hot For Snakes Plus (2008)

L.A. roots-rocker Olson and British blues-rock guitarist Taylor made a powerful pair. This live album, recorded at the Roxy in Los Angeles in 1990, was their debut, waxed with a hand-picked band that had rehearsed for a week and played only one warm-up gig. It's a sign of the players' quality that the group sounds like a well-oiled road unit, with Olson's powerful, earthy vocals backed by a solid rhythm section of Rick Hemmert on drums and Jesse Sublett on bass, and sparked throughout by Taylor's brilliant electric guitar. Released in 1991 under this title in the U.S. and as "Live" in Europe, this two-CD reissue adds a Taylor-sung cover of Fred McDowell's "You Gotta Move," previously released in Japan, and an entire second disc of studio tracks picked from Olson's subsequent collaborations with Taylor.

Recorded at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California in March of 1990, Too Hot for Snakes is an entertaining, if ultimately non-essential, addition to the catalogs of both artists; the clear highlight is a fiery rendition of the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers track "Sway," a song Taylor clearly relishes performing as much as Olson does. (Too Hot for Snakes is the U.S. release of the material released in Europe as Live).
