It's been far too long since a new John Conlee
studio album, but in the meantime this concert date Live at Billy Bob's Texas
is more than an acceptable substitute. The 18 tracks included here feature almost all of the singer's biggest hits, from "Rose Colored Glasses" to "Lady Lay Down" to "Common Man," each crisply rendered by a fine backing band; Conlee
himself is in excellent form throughout -- if anything, the passage of time has made his vocals even more affecting.
