I recently decided to take a chance on a band who I’d only heard single tracks from before and only a couple of those. I was in my local independent record shop and saw this live DVD/CD combination on the new rack. It’s quite a progressive shop and I’ve been surprised at the music on sale in such a small town as mine. Grateful that this sort of music was available outside of a big city, I decided to buy it – even it was a little more expensive than it might have been online.
The music comes mainly from their Lady in Gold album from 2016 and their live tour for that album, the DVD was recorded in Le Trianon in Paris on 30th October 2016. It is more blues-rock based than a lot of the music I mention on this blog but it’s a style I enjoy and they give it all such a fresh twist that it doesn’t ever feel stale. It manages to achieve an air of excitement and energy that many bands just don’t: seeing any concert footage from blues rock bands from the late 70s and 80s compared to this and it’s worlds apart, you have to go back to the early 70s to get anywhere close to the excitement, on stage at any rate.
