Five Or Six By Five Live
With The Phantom Movers
Norton EP-010 1991
Roy Loney: lead vocals, rythm guitar
Recorded live April 7, 1990 at the Twist & Shout Club , Bethesda, Maryland except "The Black Widow" which was recorded at CBGB, New York City the following night. For best result play at extra loud volume.
The next record was the first official live disc with Phantom Movers who resurfaced, this time with Greg Carmichael on bass. The record’s sound quality is not in world class but they do show what a fantastic band they were.
A1) Rockin' In The Graveyard (Morrell). It starts very very slow but then we get a version very close to th Phantom Track version. Great!
A2) Second Cousin (Loney) is also a version very close to the original version.
A3) The Black Widow (Link Wray). Flamin’ Groovies did Rumble. This is another good Link Wray cover.
B1) Evil Hearted Ada (Loney). It’s very close to the original version again.
B2) Bop-A-Lena (Tillis-Pierce) / Somethin' Else (Sheeley-Cochran). This is a new medley where they changed Pistol Packin’ Mama to Bop-A-Lena. It rocks.
It’s nice to hear the band live, but the sound is only acceptable and the songs are very close to the studio versions anyway. 6/10
