Amoeba Review

Daniel Tures, Hollywood 01/22/2014

Alex Chilton left us in 2010, and Electricity by Candlelight is a great way to remember him. A power outage forced the Knitting Factory to cancel his performance, but a few fans lit some candles and stuck around to see what would happen. The man himself wandered out from backstage. Someone gave him an acoustic guitar, and he started messing around with some old jazz and country chestnuts. Before you know it, he winds up playing a whole set of campfire tunes, demonstrating his mastery of the classic songbook (everything from "The Girl From Ipanema" to "Raining in my Heart") and his matchless one-man-band acoustic chops. Everybody's singing along, the jokes are crackin', you had to be there... and somehow, somebody recorded it all on a little battery operated thingamajig, for the rest of us who missed it. Listen to this and dig the glory of hanging out on Alex Chilton's back porch with a guitar and a couple beers and nothing better to do. R.I.P. and rock on. Read More
