Mother's Finest - Countdown Cafe (1989)

Countdown Cafe was a Dutch radio show, which aired a lot of great concerts in the 80's and 90's. In 1989 this Mother's Finest (from Funk Rock Georgia!) show was broadcast. Promoting their (arguably worst) album 'Looks Could Kill', they sounded hot as ever. While the studio album was a rather forced attempt at being hip, live there was hardly any difference. Mother's Finest live is always a treat. And since I'm off to go see them tomorrow in Rotterdam, it's the perfect excuse to share this not-so-widely-circulating show. Juts one song of the studio album, a tune called 'Legs And Lipstick', which is so much better live than in the studio. The rest of the set is classic Mother's Finest, with Joyce 'Baby Jean' Kennedy and the rest of the gang burning down the house. Can't fight the feeling!

Glad i stumbled upon your site, southern rock, as you know, is relatively hard to find especially an interesting site like yours...I mean for instance, when r the powers that be guna learn? Officially re-issue and re-master the Potliquor collection for god's sakes!! Anyway, lots of fascinating music and your writing offers a keen knowledge and is also very enjoyable...Keep up the good work and thank you.
