Classic Rock early release? Don't think so!
, 22 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Classic Rock Presents: Last of a Dyin' Breed (Audio CD)
This review is not about the music found on this album nor about the magazine itself, but more the way it is advertised.
This release is suppose to be available SOONER than the regular version and is suppose to feature special bonus tracks...Well, this is UNTRUE!
If you are interested in the magazine, then fair enough, get this version, otherwise, I would suggest you take your car and go to your nearest music store and get the digipack cd edition (released on the exact same date) and also featuring 4 BONUS TRACKS. Of course, and that's where it gets interesting, the bonus tracks are DIFFERENT. Instead of getting two studio tracks and two live songs (yet another version of...), you get 4 NEW STUDIO TRACKS.
So, I ask you: why are those classic Rock releases suppose to be so special? Why do they get a supposedly early release?
And this is not the first time it happens either: same went for Slash-Apocalyptic love (album came on the same day with a bonus dvd AND the extra tracks), same for Rush-clockwork angels (although no extra material), Whitesnake-forevermore (same release date, more and different bonus tracks), etc...
In fact it happened twice to me, that I had pre-ordered the CR release from amazon, and found the regular cd (with bonus) in a regular store DAYS BEFORE the package arrived to me. So, amazon and/or CR, either set an earlier shipment or stop advertising this product the way you do!
So I guess it all comes down to what you really want to get: the extra's or the magazine (which to be fair is always a pleasure to read), but I hate to be taken for a fool and told that this Classic Rock release is somehow the only available in the beginning!
Of course, the fan will wanna get both versions...
As for the content of the cd, I've only listened to it once, which doesn't suffise to give a good opinion of the product, but it seems fair to say that the album sounds (again at first) like good rockin' Skynyrd as it should.
