article imageReview: Dave Mason and Steve Cropper bring Rock & Soul Revue to Tarrytown Special

Tarrytown - On July 15, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Dave Mason and Steve Cropper brought their "Rock & Soul Revue" to the exquisite Tarrytown Music Hall in New York.
Mason and Cropper kicked off their set with the sultry "In the Midnight Hour," with Mason on lead vocals, and they immediately broke into "Green Onions" and "Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave," which was from Mason's breakthrough solo album, Alone Together, from 1970.
Equally impressive were "We Just Disagree" and "Knock On Wood." "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" was lengthy, but an eight-minute instrumental masterpiece. "Dear Mr. Fantasy" is always a stand-out tune among the Traffic songs in their set.

Gretchen Rhodes delivered a hypnotic and expressive rendition of "Can't Find My Way Home," with Cropper and Mason rocking the guitars. It was followed by "Try A Little Tenderness" and the Otis Redding blues classic, "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay," which was co-penned by Cropper and Otis Redding.
"Only You Know and I Know" was a fun sing-along with the audience, as Rhodes played the tambourine. After the signature Traffic rock anthem "Feelin' Alright," they closed with the infectious "All Along the Watchtower," with Gretchen Rhodes on vocals, and "Soul Man," all of which earned them standing ovations.
The Verdict
Overall, Dave Mason and Steve Cropper were able to put on a dynamic and nostalgic rock show at the Tarrytown Music Hall in New York. The audience knew that they were in the presence of musical greatness. Mason and Cropper only get better with age. Both Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are worth seeing live whenever they come to town with their "Rock & Soul Revue" Tour. Their show garnered an A rating.
