Title - 'Warpaint Live [LIVE]' (Eagle Records)
Artist - The Black Crowes
This is a reat treat for Crowes fans, an well-played, well-mixed and well-recorded celebration of a great album along with some outstanding extra tracks, including a smoking rendition of "Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye" from 1992's all-time classic 'Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.'
With a line-up change within the band it left me worried, but the band is back and in my opinion the best they have been in a long time. It's nice to hear that Chris hasn't lost his step as he shows it right away in "Walk Believer Walk." The cover songs are well done and covering Delaney Bramlett's "Oh Elijah" was awesome as the Crowes fit the song perfectly.
My only gripe with this album is the quality of the mix. I feel like it has an almost unrealistic ammount of bass, the guitars are quite tinny, and Chris's vocals (vocals in general) get a little buried at times. Granted, this is a live album, however many of the live albums I have purchased from liveblackcrowes.com have way clearer sound than this.
If you haven't bought 'Warpaint' buy this and if you have, I would still recommend getting this the six extra tracks and the band live is well worth it. Great CD.
