The album takes on from Jon Lord’s Australian club tour with the band in 2003, which resulted in a live album and DVD.

In January 2003 Jon Lord was in Australia to perform the ‘Concerto For Group And Orchestra’ at the Sydney Opera House with Australian band George and premier ‘Boom Of The Tingling Strings’ at Melbourne.

An accompanying club tour of Jon’s solo material had to be changed when a small injury in Sydney put his piano playing abilities out. The Hoochie Coochie Men came to his rescue and the solo dates were changed from strings and piano to smoking Hammond tinged blues rock.

    I bought the first Live Hoochie Coochie cd with Jon Lord,and I thought it was great. I’m sure I’ll give this one a try as well.

    Uuuuh – this will be a hot release! I love the first Hoochie Coochie Live Album.

    It’s a long time since Jon plays the Hammond and Blues is good for it’s sound!

    A Nice surprise, that it will feature Ian Gillan and “Cold Chisel”/”Living Loud”-singer Jimmy Barnes.

    I’ve heard Jon playing Blues live with Pete York and friends in Germany a long time ago – it was fantastic.

    It was back in 1989 when Pete York an friends played a few club dates in Germany! Absolutely amazing shows! I was in Ludwigshafen in an club called “Haus der Jugend”. I hope for a long time that this will happen again! From time to time Pete York plays with the so called R&B Allstars which feature Chris Farlowe, Colin Hodgkinson, Miller Anderson, Alie Donnely and a varoiuos keyboard players. If you ever have a change to see them, go there! Even Jon Lord is not on board, it´s great fun!
