Without mistake, one can only say what a legend Little Bob is regarding Rock'n'Roll History. Neither success, glory, hits, airplay nor homage could ever testify enough of his contribution to music.
It all goes back to France's main northern port. A tough mother of a rain-battered grey hole called Le Havre. Le Havre is the closest France ever gets to the look and feel of Liverpool or New Jersey: oil terminals, super tankers, refineries, chemical plants, warehouses, longshoremen, etc. Little Bob comes from here, and for those to whom such things matter, Little Bob's story features all the right Rock & Roll ingredients. Bob can out mean-street anyone.
Bob's been at it for a while, playing every armpit France has to offer with his legendary band called Little Bob Story, Bob even ventured to England (300 gigs) attracting the "gunslingers" of British rock critics, opening" the road as he traveled it, playing all around Europe, singing on every single stage on this road from Irish pubs to Hells Angels bars, from Universities to big Festivals. Literally setting venues on fire! Touring as if the fate of the free world depended on it.
Today, Little Bob leads a new band (since 11 years), released 11 solo's albums, and his rock has changed. His music is drawing deeper into the roots of blues. A mixed up of tribal rock with burning emotion and powerful feeling.
The greatest have always considered Bob as one of their own. Recording with Steve Hunter (Mytch Ryder, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper...), Charlie Sexton (the Texas Boy Wonder), Kenny Margolis (of Mink Deville and Cracker) Dave Alvin (Blasters) and on stage with Maria McKee, Chuck E.Weiss & Benmont Tench in Holliwood, Dr Feelgood, Beverly Jo Scott & Southside Johnny in Paris, Willy DeVille & Johnny Thunders in England.
Little Bob cherishes the way of singing of classic rock and blues singers from Little Richard or Howling Wolf to Eric Burdon. Bob's got the secret magic ingredient which makes all the difference in the heart of his fans: the innocence, the fervor & the ingenuity. Bob pulls it off, never blinks, never winks, he discards the "Camp," easy way-out, gambles on the power of bare emotion, and comes out a winner. His look and tremondous voice make him unique to the audience.
Each time Little Bob's release a new album it is a good news, if anything because, as wise men say, "whenever a dreamer fulfills his dream, other dreamers ought to celebrate. Source

"Vacant Heart" is the fifth album of Little Bob Story (not counting "Live In London" and the compilation of singles “Like Rock'n'roll”). With a new & younger Story (D.Lelan & G.G. Gremy left the band) Little Bob recorded this album in London with Sean Tyla as producer.With "Vacant Heart" Little Bob Story returned to real rock'n'roll!

Bonjour,

merci pour toutes ces perles,dans la même veine, en rock français, je serais preneur des 2 albums de "Trans Europe Express" et du premier album de Factory: Black Stamp (groupe de Givors vers Lyon). Tous ces LP n'ont malheureusement jamais été réédités je crois.

est-ce que tu aurais cela dans tes trésors cachés?

**********************
You know, you don't have to be rude, I may be stupid but certainly not lazy and already found that one. I was just looking for a better sound quality as the one you pointed out is only mp3@192

Bonne nouvelle pour "Black Stamp", d'avance merci.

Il me semblait, par contre que "Bande à part" était une compil et pas un live...

et
Come see me
