Reviewed – Black Country Communion – Live Over Europe DVD

Black Country Communion
Live Over Europe

Mascot Records
Out now

I’m a big fan of Black Country Communion and all it’s component parts Bonham, Bonamassa, Hughes and Sherinian and so I couldn’t wait to get my eyes and ears stuck into this release.
If you consider yourself a bonafide rock fan then you should be buying (or receiving this) for Christmas. This is a two disc set that’s available on both DVD and Blu-Ray so take your pick depending on what hardware you have to run it through. 
I won’t concentrate too much on the sound and visual technicalities but needless to say, what comes out of your speakers is of the highest quality possible. So what do you get for your money here? Well the set the band plays has been taken from a number of gigs but the editing and sound are brilliant. Of the four members of the band, everyone gets a fair share of the mix and no one gets to dominate more than should. Of course Jason Bonham holds it all together at the back. The production by no lesser name than the great Kevin Shirley is spot on, and sounds just like a rock band at the top of their game should sound.

Catch a glipse of what you could be watching here

Black Country Communion have had two magnificent albums out in the last couple of years both of which are musts for rock fans. On the main disc there are seventeen featured songs with a healthy split between the two releases. The songs come from the band’s recent European tour.

There are many camera angles to keep you interested and a few effects along the way including tilt shift which is slightly unusual for a rock video but works very well. Star man though is Glenn Hughes who is mesmerising throughout. The man is just a dynamo and he is everything a front man should be.

Buy now and turn it right up! Here’s the Amazon link
