While The Wood Brothers might not extol any particular religious values, this off-the-cuff, marginally sarcastic comment elicits applause, whistles and shouts. As Oliver later confesses, the lurching tune is more about “the spiritual benefits of a nightclub” than a loftier pursuit, but the atmosphere created at a Wood Brothers gig is not unlike an old-school revival; there’s a whole lot of sweatin’, shoutin’, stompin’ and singin’ happening. The band’s fusion of folk, blues, jazz and classic R&B has evolved dramatically in its existence, and there’s no clearer proof than the in-the-moment magic of this matched set of live albums, which will be released several months apart.
