robert randolph gets amped up

Robert Randolph & The Family Band aced last nights performance on BBC2's Later, not only for the energy and funk the Family Band put out live but the starring role of Randolph's redefining Jackson Steel playing, an instrument long associated with country music.
Performing the track "Amped Up" from their latest Blue Note album 'Lickety Split' it was a rare chance to see a band actually having a lot of fun performing. On all accounts a mere taster of the energy they put into a live show. Until someone posts the actual Later performance this film of them recording the track in the Blue Note studio comes a pretty close second.
