Jake Bugg – Live At Silver Platters

This is a Record Store Day release from 2014. I own it on both LP and CD… because… why not! Sure do like me some Jake Bugg, and this little 4-song EP is fun.

Recorded at Silver Platters, Seattle, WA on January 20, 2014,

There’s A Beast And We All Feed It, Trouble Town and Lightning Bolt all have a great energy, that Johnny Cash-like strumming pattern and chug. But they sure sound different with him solo, without the band backing him. And all acoustic guitar (no Tele, this time ’round). I like it! He announces Lightning Bolt as the last track, so the set seems short… Were there more tracks that day and they only released these? If not, why would they only schedule him for so short a time?

It seemed that was it, but then Storm Passes Away is here too. There’s no talking to the crowd at the start of it, so was it an encore track, or tucked somewhere in the middle of the original set? So many questions, it seems… No matter, it’s a sweet swingin’ mid-tempo country tune that suits him perfectly.

In Sum:

Two off the first record, two off the second record. Short and sweet, and a cool little collectible. I have no idea if it was limited or rare (probably not too rare). Were there more tracks played that day, and if so, why did they only release these four?

Ah well, if it weren’t for RSD one wonders if we’d have even had this set at all. I mean, he played for that special day, and this was released because of that day, so I say right on, RSD. And right on, Jake Bugg.

  1. Silver Platters is a record store in Seattle Washington.
    In March 2014, Jake Bugg performed at a bunch of U.S. record stores and usually played 5 songs, so I assume this was recorded during that time.
    You know what happens when you assume though


    • I gathered it was a record store, but he must’ve been in the area already because that’s a long way to go to only play a couple of songs. If that was the tour, it must’ve been some sort of ‘Introduction To’ thing, trying to break into the American market.


  2. Dare say he did these in store appearances prior to the main evening gig in town, eh?
