“In a way it’s the ultimate Champs album…” says Danny and we have to agree. From 2008′s These Days, to a selection of favourites from 2013’s studio album Stay True, via the likes of Henry The Van and Colonel & The King - it’s almost like a greatest hits of Danny & The Champions. However, this hits package captures what the studio recordings can’t quite convey – the raw passion and high energy of a Champs live show.
Recorded live at a hugely sweaty sold out show at Jazz Cafe, Camden on the 6th March this year, featuring co-conspirators Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou, you can either take this as a welcome reminder of a shit-hot show, or a harsh lesson on how you should never pass up an opportunity to catch these guys live.
“This is what we sound like right now and I’m thrilled we were able to capture that.” - Danny George Wilson
