BURIED ALIVE: LIVE IN MARYLAND is a live album by The New Barbarians. It was recorded at the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland on May 5, 1979 during the band's only concert tour. It was released on 4th September 2006. The New Barbarians were a live-only band consisting of Rolling Stones members Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, Jazz great Stanley Clarke, former Faces/Small Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, Bobby Keys and Ziggaboo Modeliste. 20 tracks including ''Sweet Little Rock 'N Roller'', ''Love In Vain'', ''Let's Go Steady'', ''Before They Make Me Run'', ''Jumping Jack Flash'', ''Seven Days'' and more. Released on Ron Wood's Wooden Records label. Addled, staggering, bleary-eyed, wired: that's how BURIED ALIVE: LIVE IN MARYLAND sounds. It's the band's charm, the reason this recoding has been long sought in bootleg form. And the irony of the New Barbarians' 1979 Tour should be lost on no one. Keith Richards's sentence for his 1977 heroin and cocaine bust in Toronto was two days of charity work. What'd he do? He got his guitar-slinging partner from The Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood, to bring this ad hoc band - boasting himself and Richards on guitars, Ziggy Modeliste on drums, Ian McLagan on keys, and Stanley Clarke on bass - to play two dates for the Canadian Institute for the Blind. So penance for the drug bust came in the form of a gig by a band who rehearsed until they couldn't get high anymore. As for the New Barbarians' tunes, they're ramshackle and shouted and bellowed and brilliant. The sound on these discs is remarkable, blurry only to the point you'd expect, given the sodden nature of the band members.

A year after Some Girls, Keith Richards and Ron Wood set out on a brief, ramshackle tour as The New Barbarians, supported by Stanley Clark on bass, Ian McLagan, and Bobby Keys. This was brief but legendary, since it could be romanticized as The Stones' Id unhinged - the two hardest partiers in the band, out on their own, rampaging and pillaging, drinking and drugging and running wild. Apart from a single that was kind of released, but not really, there were no official recordings, but plenty of bootlegs circulated over the years, with no official release of the live material until 2006's BURIED ALIVE: LIVE IN MARYLAND appeared. This performance has circulated before, but never in such clear fidelity, or in such careful packaging, which is why this is worthwhile for those who already have the boots. But this is really for listeners (aka Stones fans) who have heard the legend of The New Barbarians, but not the band itself. They'll find that the show may not quite be legendary, but it's sure a hell of a lot of fun. And if Ron Wood actually sings more than Keith Richards, there's also little question who the real star is: whenever Keef steps to the mike, he pushes Wood to the side, and the encores are almost all his. But leadership doesn't quite matter here, since this is at its core just a guy's night out - that the guys are pros means this isn't as loose, but it also means that they're tight enough to pull off an entertaining show while still seeming a bit wild. It's not quite a lost classic, but this two-disc set is surely a great time and it's hard to imagine anybody who wants to hear this being disappointed.
