Live in the Shadow of the Blues review,
This review is from: Live In The Shadow Of The Blues (2CD) (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of hard rock/heavy metal since 1982 when I saw my first gig which was AC/DC on their For Those About To Rock... tour of '82.
Live albums such as AC/DC's 'If You Want Blood...', Motorhead's 'No sleep 'til Hammersmith' and Whitesnake's 'Live In The Heart Of The City' are all classics but in recent times, live albums just haven't been the same...... until this one!!
This is the best live album I've heard in years. The sound quality is superb throughout. If you like a really heavy twin guitar sound, you'll love this. The drums, bass and keyboard are excellent and Coverdale's voice is really on form.
The selection of songs will please everyone. I'm quite a fan of the '1987' album and quite a few of the songs make an appearance here; all of them played brilliantly.
My favourite is 'crying in the rain' with the guitar solos played superbly, note for note!!
Disc two opens with an excellent rendition of 'Burn/Stormbringer' ... awesome!!
The quality of music continues with every track. After all the live tracks, four new studio tracks are included and I must say, they're all good songs. I look forward to the new album.
I would say to anyone who likes good hard rock: buy this album, go home, sit down, pour a beer and enjoy the music!
