Joanne Shaw Taylor recorded an excellent concert at the Borderline in London on 12 May 2013, at which she pulled out all the stops of her ability. Especially her vocal qualities were in the foreground; the lady is currently one of the best blues singers. The first two tracks still suffered from a rather undifferentiated sound. Afterwards Taylor went the right way with multi-faceted blues rock ballads ("Beautfifully Broken"), hearty blues rock ("Watch 'Em Burn"), the Hendrix cover "Manic Depression", a Southern rocker ("Kiss The Ground Goodbye") and the exquisite blues "Going Home". The DVD (recording: mediocre to questionable) contains some additional tracks.
