During the summer of 2000 Cold Flame played several open air and premier live music events in the North West. Some of these shows were recorded and you can now hear how the band sounded at the time. A brand new COLD FLAME CD was officially released on Friday July 6th 2001. Entitled 'LIVE AT THE CARNIVAL` it featured 73 minutes of vindaloo rocking blues, capturing the live sound created by the band that year. During July 2000, the band played a memorable hometown open-air concert as part of Glossop's annual summer festival. The gig was held in Manor Park, Glossop in front of a large and appreciative crowd. In other words, for once it wasn't raining! A recording direct from the mixing desk forms the basis of our new CD. Some additional material recorded by the band several weeks earlier at The Limelight Club in Crewe also appears on the album. As with all COLD FLAME live concerts, much of the material played was original and tracks from both 'On Thin Ice' and 'Stormcloud' are represented. There are also interesting renditions of several well-known classic covers - favourites of band members and audience alike. For the Tull fans amongst you there are early raw renditions of three Jethro Tull classic pieces to enjoy .
'LIVE AT THE CARNIVAL' was mastered at Shipwreck Studios in Glossop and produced and engineered by Patrick and the Studio's Paul Walster. Special mention must go to our artist Julian Homer, Glossop born and bred, who once again has excelled expectations with a wonderful cover design taken from a photograph depicting the band live onstage. Julian's skills are ever increasing - should anyone out there be interested, he is available for design work. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org The new album is now available from the band via email, at all gigs as well as from The Basement Studios and local record stores.
The significance in hindsight of this particular CD release - the band's first ever live album was that it marked the end of one stable line up and prepared the band for more meaningful forays into Jethro Tull territory .Several years on its interesting to look back at the way Cold Flame played Tull material when Dan and Keith were part of the line up .
