Good, but not perfect.,

This review is from: Live In The Shadow Of The Blues (2CD) (Audio CD)
It was nice of DC to finally package up in a double CD the live show we all craved to be released. Whitesnake have a great line up now probably their best ever, that said it is a shame that Marco Mendoza has gone as he was as solid as a rock in the rhythm section. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers and say that the sound is not the greatest, "a bit wooley" if those are the right words, that aside everything you would expect is there. All the songs we want are included (nice to see slide it in make it back into the set), the band are giving 100%, any true whitesnake fan will just turn it up and get right into it despite the flaws.
Why they didn't just release the full set of the "live in the still of the night" DVD is beyond me. The CD that came with it was of stellar quality, just too short. If they had done that we would have had a 5 star package instead of a 4 star one.
The new tracks are OK as well, it is just to be hoped that they use this line up to record a new full studio album as soon as possible. One thing remains true at the end of it all, DC is still the best Rock singer/frontman still touring; the guy is amazing. keep going Dave and keep the band together.
