4.0 out of 5 stars it's Motorhead, fools, 22 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Wörld Is Ours - Vol 1 Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Lemmy may have had to cancel a show recently due to a "hand injury" - koff, koff, but that hasn't derailed the Motorhead machine for long. And here's a massive new offering for their rabid following. Naturally, this is out in multiple formats, but I've went for the DVD plus double CD digipak, so I can alternate viewing and listening, depending on where I'm sitting. Now I'm prepared for a verbal onslaught by email, but Motorhead aren't as good as they used to be. But Motorhead at about 60% is still a lot better than 99% of other bands.

This DVD / CD set features Motorhead's entire set from their Teatro Caupolican, Santiago, Chile concert, recorded on April 9, 2011, and includes lots of bonus footage and extras, including interviews and live footage from New York's Best Buy Theater and the Manchester Apollo. Now, I know that Lemmy is old, but I would have preferred some colour. Even though I can remember the days of black and white telly, I didn't for out for a big screen, just so Banger Films and Sam Dunn (Iron Maiden Flight 666, Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage) could go all arty farty on my ass.

The sound is a lot better than some recent Motorhead live offerings, thanks to a good mix by the band`s long-time producer Cameron Webb. Not a lot changes in Motorhead World, so bar a couple of new tracks from the "The Wörld Is Yours", it's business as usual, as they rattle through a familiar set list. The booklet is a bit rubbish, with the minimum of text, and some bog standard live pictures, but you don't really buy Motorhead live albums for something to read.

If you're one of these fools with a BluRay player, you'll get the DVD along with an (Electronic Press Kit from "The Wörld Is Yours" plus 2 video clips from the album, 'Get Back In Line' and 'I Know How To Die'. There's also a vinyl version with a double LP, 180 gram vinyl edition in a gatefold sleeve. Finally, if you've got more money than sense, there is a limited Motör-Bag edition which will include the DVD + double CD digipack, vinyl LPs of the Manchester and NY full concerts, a Motörhead Crew T-shirt, backstage pass and a mounted piece of "The Wörld Is Yours" backdrop, all wrapped up in a custom Motörhead carrying bag.

It's out in Europe now, but the colonials will have to wait until January 2012.

Seems to me there is a mistake in track list. On every release. On digipack it say that first song is "We are Motorhead" and it's not, it is "Iron fist".
