CD Review: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Choose Red Rocks For Debut Live Album

Rising rock & soul band, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats headlined their first tour in 2016 and to capture that feat, the band recorded their show at the famed Red Rocks for a new release. The band's debut live album "Live At Red Rocks" features 18-tracks, packed with enough soul that you will easily find yourself grooving along to these songs. The band's self-titled debut album topped the U.S. folk album chart back in 2015 and 3 of albums' singles cracked the top five on the Billboard Adult Alternative chart. All, but one of the songs in the band's setlist is an original, expect for a rousing rendition of the closing track, Sam Cooke's "Having A Party."
 
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats invited the famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band to join them for the first few songs of the show, including the instrumental march, "Failing Dirge" and the swift, rocking pace of "I've Been Failing." They slow the tempo down slightly for a swinging rendition of "Howling At Nothing" and "Mellow Out." Nathaniel Rateliff goes back in time to his 2011 debut solo album for the quiet, emotional delivery of "You Should've Seen The Other Guy," before the party anthem "I Need Never Get Old." Rateliff & The Night Sweats jam on the 8-minute "Shake" and find the perfect balance of rock and soul to groove on "Thank You." Their new live release closes with the fan favorite "S.O.B.," which firmly puts Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats on the map as one of the rising bands of modern rock/soul music.
