BAND Don Airey AND FRIENDS
ALBUM LIVE IN HAMBURG
OUT Feb 26th, 2021
OUR RATING 90/100
Yesterday was out the first live album by solo band of master DON AIREY, actually KB player of Deep Purple, recorded live four years ago at FABRIK, Hamburg.
This line up involves Carl Sentance on vocals ( Persian Risk/Nazareth), LAURENCE COTTLE, bass player on Black Sabbath HEADLESS CROSS, SWEET SAVAGE guitarist Simon McBride and session drummer Jon Finnigan.
An amazing journey through legendary bands where DON AIREY was part of, from RAINBOW to GARY MOORE, from prog COLOSSEUM II to DEEP PURPLE and WHITESNAKE.
Gorgeous solo parts also for bass, keys and drums, in DESPERADO, LOST IN HOLLYWOOD and HUSH, an amazing version of CHILD TIME exalted by CARL SENTANCEMand also three great songs from AIREY’s solo albums: SHOOTING STAR, THE WAY I FEEL INSIDE and LOST BOYS.
Here we are at top levels where classic hard rock can be played..no doubt..to suggest without hesitation!!
And, as back cover reminds, 100% LIVE..NO OVERDUBS!
