In the twilight of his career,Coverdale has produced the goods again,i've had this(on repeated play) since the day of release,its a belter.If you liked 'Live In Japan',then you'll absolutely love this!!.
2 discs worth of live 'Snake,in glorious sound,production is excellent and the vocals are to,(the occasional screech not withstanding),disc 1 recorded on the UK 2011 tour,no venues listed per track although Newcastle get a mention during proceedings.Replicating the majority of the audio from 'Live In Japan' you may be put off,dont be,this is top notch performances ,cherry picked beautifully,EVERY track is superb,a hearty 5 stars.
Disc 2 shorter at approx 50 mins or so,is from the Eurpean tour supporting the Forevermore disc,so its great that there is only 1 track duplicated with disc 1,again it wonderfully produced and a few acoustic performances thrown in,magnificent,wish he'd called it 'Made In Europe,that might have ruffled a few feathers,ha ha.,again 5 stars all the way.
This is as close to the definitive 'live ' disc for modern 'Snake,so hopefully he can concentrate on another studio disc,maybe even find time to release a few archive live albums individually rather than expensive box sets,just a thought.
Anyway if you were hesitant about buying,no need its excellent.
