While I understand that a review by nature is a subjective form of writing, this particular review is just unfair. Huey is a true musician and his band is great. They do not just play the songs as originally recorded- they clearly like to jam and that was evident in their performance of "Jacob's Ladder" at the SB concert (just one example). I have seen them numerous times and I'm sure that he meant what he said about giving a good show. They often play through several encores and no doubt would have if he'd felt better. Needless to say, I'll be seeing Huey in concert again to appreciate both the heart of his music and the soul.
