The Groundhogs Live CD/DVD

(Kayos) September 30 is the street date for The Groundhogs Live At The Astoria 1998, a specially-priced two-disc CD/DVD package from Eagle Vision.

The British crowd at The Astoria goes certifiably nuts for The Groundhogs on this night in 1998, the first show ever filmed of this mythic band: Guitarist/Vocalist TS McPhee, Bassist Eric Chipulina and Drummer Pete Correa. Touring in support of their Hogs In Wolf's Clothing album (a tribute to the legendary late bluesman Howling Wolf), they open and close with some major Howling but the set traverses their entire career going as far back as their 1968 debut, Scratching The Surface.

This 81-minute 12-song DVD is the only known Groundhogs full-length concert on DVD. The CD is a full 78-minute audio of the same show.

Formed in 1963 England as a blues band, The Groundhogs gained credibility when they served as backing band for such late blues icons as John Lee Hooker and Champion Jack Dupree on British tours. Always highly regarded by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as a fanatical cult base of blues-loving rock fans, their sterling string of albums-including 1970's Thank Christ For The Bomb, 1971's Split and 1972's Who Will Save The World: The Mighty Groundhogs-cemented their rep. Originally breaking up in 1976, they reformed in 1985 and continue to tour today.
