Complete your The Ramsey Lewis Trio collection. This album starts off with a Hard Days Night and you get an eye roll from me. Then you can hear something, the Lighthouse crowd is singing along and you give in also. They bite and you got em. Every song you can hear someone say something like 'alright' in the middle of a track or 'oh that's nice' at the end. You know why Argo liked recording live.

One person found this helpful. The sound samples on this page are representative of the recording quality and the arrangements. I personally think this is one of the Trio's best recordings - live or studio. One reason is that the drummer, Red Holt, had an aggressive style that I never noticed on his other albums. I normally prefer piano trio drummers to be in the background, but his style works and especially on this album.
Considering that this album was an obvious follow-up to "The In Crowd," it is surprising that the music is not more commercial; that would happen in the near future. As it was, pianist Ramsey Lewis (assisted as usual by bassist Eldee Young and drummer Red Holt) had another big hit in "Hang on Sloopy," and the set (as with the previous one) was recorded at a club before an enthusiastic crowd. The enjoyable LP also includes a couple of Beatles tunes (their version of "A Hard Day's Night" caught on), "He's a Real Gone Guy," "Billy Boy,".
Hang On Ramsey! is a live album by the Ramsey Lewis Trio which was recorded at the Lighthouse in 1965 and released on the Cadet label.
