Editors’ Notes Over the past few decades, Chris Isaak has amassed a sizable catalog of songs that sound like Roy Orbison has been resurrected and found his way into the new century with his sound intact. How else to explain the wonderful vocal swings of “Somebody’s Crying”? Or the rockabilly shuffle of “Want Your Love”? Issak is all for retro turns as long as he can modernize them with extra electricity. He records in higher tech studios but never lets the technology push him around. This live collection from the legendary San Francisco Fillmore club is the perfect venue for Isaak to run through “Wicked Game,” “San Francisco Days” and “Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” along with a few unreleased tunes. It’s an emotively pure collection backed by his stellar live band. “Worked It Out Wrong” strips it down to piano and vocals and the cries of the captivated crowd. “Move Along” shuffles back with a laid-back rhythm that is never down for the count. Bonus cuts such as “Lonely Man” and “Goin’ Nowhere” turn up the speed and energy and make for the perfect encore for a perfect night.
