Initially I treated the announcement of this release as I know many others did. - Record Company Rip off. Having already bought the Classic Rock Fan Pack, Vinyl and Picture Disc formats of Aftershock , I was loathe to buy anymore.
However, last week on Holiday I noticed this in a Record Shop in Amsterdam. I purchased it on impulse and am very glad I did.
Now while you get the album Aftershock yet again, there are still many bonuses to this release. I will list them for you.
1. Nice Metallic Gold Digipak (not shown very well here in Amazons picture)
2. Nice Metallic Gold Discs.
3. Updated booklet with some great photos from this years tour.
4.Aftershock tour edition CD - Best of the Wast Coast.
The live CD is very good. Great versions of OVerkill, Damage Case and many more classics as well as new track 'Lost Woman Blues'.
This live album is a bit of a comfort to me as a long time fan after Lemmys recent spate of illness and it is indeed a much better live album than the last one theY issued 'The World is yours volume 2' which left me feeling maybe it was time they wrapped it up!
If you only buy one format of Aftershock, make it this one.
