Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unplugged And Strung Up (Audio CD)
this is a really good 2 cd set by saxon of remakes from 2001 when they re recorded the classic early 80s stuff and now all these years later saxon have gone back to the beginning and remade more songs and then some newer songs but still a lot of 80s stuff, i was thrilled and shocked they re did militia guard from the classic first album from 1979, dont be fooled by the unplugged in this title as that can be confusing to some as THIS IS MOSTLY NOT UNPLUGGED BUT REMXED AND SOME SOUND EFFECTS ARE ADDED, my favorite track and remake on this cd has to be this 2013 version of FROZEN RAINBOW it came out wonderful, im not usually a fan of these things ( meaning bands re recording there classics) but i guess i aproached this cd with better caution becouse saxon HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE HM BAND SINCE 1981 NOW, for a saxon re recorings cd in modern style i think fans new and old will enjoy this cd BUT please let me say this if you are a new saxon fan or a young saxon fan that does NOT have every album from 1979 through 1986 as well as most of the albums from the 1990s and into the 00s then before you buy this GET THE ORIGINAL STUFF FIRST as i think you will enjoy this cd better if you get into the original recordings first, the only negative thing i can say is WHY THE HELL DID SAXON DO A RE MAKE OF JUST LET ME ROCK FROM 1984??????? god when i bought the crusader album in february 1984 upon its release over here i had been a saxon fan 3 years already and i thought WTF?????? the video was even more pathetic, biff has worked so hard to restore saxon and build the band back up from a point where a lot of us thought saxon where finished by 1989 after the destiny album in 1988 flopped so damn bad that i stongly feel he should have picked a song like THIN RED LINE or MINISTRY OF FOOLS from unleash the beast in 1997 to do a remake of then just let me rock, anyway it is mr byfords band not mine but as a fan for so long and after going to saxon gigs for 30 years now ( when they come to new york) i feel i must state this. anyway im glad i bought this for my collection, the viynl sounds great to..... also saxon do a killer electric remake of the 1992 classic FOREVER FREE here wich is great as sadly that was a very overlooked record 21 years ago,..........
