Movie Reviews

Commander Cody "The Commander Proves Blues Rock Rules" = A V
Gary Covington | Louisiana | 07/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an outstanding, "Aggressive", "Blues-Rock", "Boogie Woogie" concert, by the Commander & His Lost Planet Airmen. The "Head Commander", Cody is a very, aggressive, entergetic frontman, and he can sure play the piano with an aggressive "Boogie-Woogie" style. This is pretty much, "high-entergy", rock & roll. This is a great concert, that was filmed back in their "prime" on July 1, 1980, however it was only released on DVD, this year. It consists of 17 great songs, and has an approximate running time of 71 minutes.

The line-up consists of:
Commander Cody - Vocals, Piano
Steve Mackay - Saxaphone, Vocals
Tony Johnson - Drums, Vocals
Bill Kirchen - Guitar, Vocals
Doug Kilmer - Bass, Vocals
Peter Siegel - Pedal Steel Guitar, & Guitar

The song set consists of the following:
1. Thank You Lone Ranger
2. Two Triple Cheese
3. It Should Have Been Me
4. Beat Me Daddy 8 to the Bar
5. Seeds and Stems
6. Who's Got the Rock?
7. Go to Hell
8. Sea Wolf I
9. Rocket 88 - (The old Ike Turner Song from the late 1940's, performed "high-speed" Commander Cody style.)
10.Midnight in Memphis
11.Stealing at the Seven Eleven
12.Rock That Boogie
13.Ubangi Stomp
14.Hot Rod Lincoln
15.Riot in Cell Block No.9
16.Roll the Dice
17.Sea Wolf II (The Commander performs the song "Sea Wolf" again, because, as he explains, he messed up the words on the first performance, that is on song #8.)

Overall, this is a great concert, very well performed, and very well filmed. I highly recommend this one to anyone who loves "Blues-Rock" or just plain ole Rock & Roll. Thanks & enjoy!!!!"
