Live From Las Vegas, Nevadaaaaaaa....,
on 28 June 2005
David releases this modern day classic which rivals Kenny Rodgers, Johnny Cash & Sinatra et al for their passion of good, quality music and snake hip movements.
This messiah of our times delivers these top quality anthems with the power, soul and passion of someone beating you around the head with a rubber hose for the sheer sake of it. David hits the high notes, low notes and sometimes even sings in tune. He sings California Dreaming with such power it has been said to rival the sounds and smells of what happens inside a slaughterhouse in a 90 degree heat. The way he crucifies Country Roads and takes it to a higher plain has to be heard to be believed. I could go on and on about the other songs, but unfortunately my vocabulary can only go so far. New words to describe The Great One™ will have to be invented as words like `ballcocks', `moist' and such are in no way able to describe this aural beating.
`Der Grosse Duke' also wears tasteful 80's attire in the cd cover which alone is worth 5 stars.
I hope the producers take heed of this walking saint of our times and finally give him his own Las Vegas show, to which I personally believe he deserves.
Hot Shot City is a particularly good song, but its not on this cd, which is the only letdown to this work of modern art, which also doubles as a coaster and or a frisbee.
