Film Movement Bringing Blues Doc Home This Summer

Courtesy: Film Movement

Independent film studio Film Movement is taking audiences on a journey into the history of the blues this summer.

Film Movement will release its documentary I Am The Blues Tuesday, Aug. 8 on DVD and Digital HD.  The documentary, originally released theatrically in 2015, takes audiences on a tour of the places that formed the foundations of the blues, meeting the people who helped form those bases along the way.

The places include the swamps of the Louisiana bayou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta and the hidden gems of the famed “Chitlin Circuit” that so many of the blues founders traveled decades ago. Those founders include the likes of Bobby Rush–who won his first-ever Grammy® with his latest recording Porcupine Meat, which Rush released at the age of 83—Barbara Lynn, Little Freddie King, Lazy Lester, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Bilbo Walker and many others.

Audiences can view a trailer for the award-winning, 106-minute documentary online now here.  More information on this and other titles from Film Movement is available online now at:

EODM’s New Live Recording Is A Powerhouse Performance

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

The wait is almost over.  Eagle of Death Metal will release worldwide its latest live recording I Love You All The Time: Live at the Olympia In Paris.  This 19-song (technically 22 with the three bonus performances) recording is an electrifying performance from the band, and a truly powerful statement in itself to those who would try to spread fear and terror around the globe.  It is a statement to those individuals that they will not leave any one living in fear and terror, but rather will unite the world.  That is evident through the band’s fiery performance, which will be discussed later.  Examining the performance on another level, it is a concert that new and more seasoned fans alike will appreciate in part for its wide-reaching set list, which will be discussed shortly.  The concert’s production values round out its most important elements.  Each element, audiences will note, is important in its own right to the recording’s whole.  All things considered, they make this recording one more of this year’s top new live recordings and yet more proof of why Eagle Rock Entertainment is still the leader in live recordings.

Eagles of Death Metal’s latest live recording, I Love You All The Time: Live at the Olympia in Paris, is a strong new musical effort and statement from the veteran rock outfit.  That is evidenced in part through the recording’s extensive set list.  The primary set list consists of 19 total songs, which are lifted from each of the band’s now four full-length studio recordings.  The addition of the three bonus songs, which are themselves pulled from the band’s first three albums, pushes that total to 22 songs.  Audiences will be pleased to see that a clear attempt to balance the set list was made in reading through the show’s featured songs.  Counting the bonus tracks, Peace, Love, Death Metal and Death By Sexy each received seven nods throughout the concert.  The band’s most recent album, Zipper Down (2015) is represented with five songs.  Heart On, the band’s third album, is the most lightly represented of the band’s albums, with three songs pulled for the show.  Why it was so conservatively represented is anyone’s guess.  Regardless, it is clear that the band made a full-on effort to give audiences the fullest picture possible of its catalogue in this concert.  That being the case, it becomes clear why the show’s set list is so critical to this recording.  It takes the audiences quite impressively through the band’s body of work from beginning to present.  Keeping this in mind, the concert’s set list is only one of its key elements to be examined.  The band’s performance of that set list is just as important to examine as the set list itself.

The band’s performance of its rich set list is so important to discuss here in that it one must take into account that this is a make-up show from the band’s Feb. 16, 2016 show at the Bataclan Theatre that was tragically cut short by terrorists.  The band’s energy throughout the course of the 90-minute-plus concert is so frenetic.  From front man Jesse Hughes’ full-on performance to Josh Homme and Julian Dorio’s often-time synchronized drumming to the work put in by the rest of the musicians on stage, not a single second is spared.  The band puts everything on that proverbial table throughout and leaves nothing there by the show’s end.  It shows entirely how much being able to perform the show meant to the band.  The audience in attendance showed its appreciation for that devotion, too, giving its all back to the band.  The result is a performance that will have home viewers just as enthralled and engaged as the audiences who were present at the concert’s taping, making the show pass before audiences even realize it is done.  That is a powerful statement in itself.  It is not the concert’s last important element either, even as important as it proves to be.  The concert’s production values round out its most important elements.

The production values presented throughout the course of EODM’s new live recording are collectively so important because they serve to heighten and really illustrate the energy exuded by the band in its performance.  This includes the original production and post production.  The camera work gives audiences the best seat in the house (or rather in their own houses; yes, that bad pun was intended), as they take viewers on stage with the band, into the crowd, and even into one of the theatre’s elevators with Hughes.  Through those various angles (and the hard work put in by the editors in post), audiences get a full picture of the Olympia’s size, which is apparently not that big.  The audio mix is just as important to note here.  Even with the Olympia being a semi-quaint venue, its openness absolutely cries out for a home theater system for those wanting a full concert experience.  That is not to say that the audio doesn’t sound good without a home theater system, but it such a system would not hurt the experience. Again, kudos go to those behind the editing for making the sound come out so well in the end. When this is all joined with the positives of the concert’s set list and the band’s performance the result is a concert that EODM fans everywhere will appreciate and enjoy and a work that is another one of this year’s top new live recordings.

I Love You All The Time: Live at the Olympia in Paris is one of this year’s top new live recordings and more proof of why Eagle Rock Entertainment remains today the leader in live recordings.  It is a strong, bold statement from Eagles of Death Metal and its fans, that shows that the good will always triumph over the evil in the world.  From a deep-reaching set list to a fiery performance by the band of that set list to top-notch production values, this recording boasts plenty of positives.  The whole of those elements makes this recording a concert that will keep audiences completely engaged from start to finish, not even realizing how much time has passed by the concert’s end.  It is that enjoyable.  Considering this, the whole of this recording makes the concert, once again, one of the year’s top new live recordings.  It will be available in stores and online Friday, Aug. 4.  more information on I Love You All The Time: Live at the Olympia Theatre is available online now along with all of Eagles of Death Metal’s latest news and more at:

‘Dog Years’ Ensures Engagement, Entertainment With Simplicity, Song Balance

Courtesy: Loud & Proud Records

Early next month, rock super group The Winery Dogs will release its latest live recording Dog Years to the masses. The recording, which includes both a live 15-song (17 if one counts drummer Mike Portnoy and bassist Billy Sheehan’s solos) set and a bonus 5-song studio EP is an impressive new live effort from The Winery Dogs.  That is due in part to both of the noted elements and the trio’s performance of the noted set list.  Each element is important in its own right to the recording’s overall presentation.  All things considered, they make Dog Years a work that proves to be one more of this year’s top new live recordings.

The Winery Dogs’ latest new live recording Dog Years is an enjoyable new offering from the rock super group, and easily a candidate for a spot on any critic’s list of the year’s top new live recordings.  That is due in part to its 15-song (again, 17 if one counts the two solo segments) set list.  The set list, which runs approximately 98-minutes, pulls almost equally from both of the band’s current albums.  The band’s self-titled debut is represented with seven songs while Hot Streak gets eight nods.  Considering the fact that The Winery Dogs boasts a total of 13 songs, that representation means that the band treated it Chilean audiences with more than half of that album in the concert presented in this recording.  That in itself is well worthy of its own share of applause.  The same applies to the band’s latest full-length studio recording.  Eight of its 13 total songs are represented in this live recording.  As with The Winery Dogs, that selection means that once again the band pulls from more than half of Hot Streak, too.  The result of that set list is a show that gives audiences a very healthy representation of the band’s body of work today.  This is more than worth its share of applause.

On a related note, the sequencing of the show’s rich set list is just as important to note as the set list itself.  Audiences will note in the set list that the band never sticks to one album or the other for far too long at one time.  The longest span that each album sees in this set list is two songs.  In other words, the band ensures audiences engagement not just with the set list but also with its sequencing.  The pairing of these factors does plenty to keep the concert entertaining and engaging.  The pairing makes the elements collectively just one of the key elements to discuss in examining this recording.  The band’s performance of the set list is just as important to note as the set list and its sequencing.

The band’s performance of the concert’s set list is so important to note because without a solid performance, there would be little to talk about here.  Audiences will be happy to know that the band’s performance of the concert’s set list is just as solid as the set list itself and its sequencing showing that it is possible to have an enjoyable live experience without unnecessary pyro and other elements.  Front man Richie Kotzen and company waste little time between songs with any idle rambling opting instead to keep the show’s energy flowing from one song to the next.  There are some brief interludes between songs, but for the most part, the band keeps things moving swiftly, explaining why the show’s run time comes in at just under two hours.  Add to the concert’s constant transitions the energy in each musician’s performance, and audiences get a show that will completely enthrall them.  From Kotzen’s own energy to Mike Portnoy’s driving tempos that barely let up to Sheehan’s own solid low-end and fiery performance, audiences get plenty to applaud even from the comfort of their own homes.  The entertainment and engagement ensured through the band’s performance couples with the show’s set list in all of its aspects to strengthen the concert’s presentation even more.  They are not the recording’s only key elements either.  The bonus five-song Dog Years EP is just as important to note in examining the recording’s presentation as the show’s set list and the band’s performance.

The bonus give-song Dog Years EP that comes with The Winery God’s new live recording is just as important to note in examining this recording’s presentation as the concert’s set list and the band’s performance thereof.  The EP is important to discuss because none of the songs featured on the disc are included in the concert or on either of the band’s current albums.  Odds are the blues-based songs are works that didn’t make the final cut for one of both of those records.  That is a positive to note because if that is indeed the case, then the inclusion of the songs here completes even more the listening experience for both records.  Regardless of whether or not that is the case, their inclusion still adds plenty to the overall experience of this live recording.  That is because one could easily argue that they present a sense of additional encores from the concert, despite being studio tracks.  Keeping this in mind, the bonus EP that comes with Live In Santiago more than proves itself as an important piece of the recording’s overall presentation.  When it is considered along with the concert’s set list and the band’s performance thereof, the whole of these elements gives audiences plenty to bark about. No, this review could not be completed without that intentionally awful pun or a variant thereof.  That aside, the whole of the noted elements makes Dog Years in whole an easy candidate for a slot on any critic’s list of the year’s top new live recordings.

The Winery Dogs’ latest live recording Dog Years is a work that any critic should have on his or her list of the year’s top new live recordings come December.  That is due, as already noted, in part due to the concert’s set list.  The set list pulls relatively equally from both of the band’s current albums and never sticks to one album or the other for too long. The band’s performance of the set list adds just as much entertainment to the concert thanks to the energy put into the performance by each band member.  The bonus five-song EP that is included with the recording is a virtual multi-song encore for fans who didn’t’ get enough from the extensive audio-visual experience presented in the live recording.  Each element clearly plays its own important part in the overall presentation of Dog Years.  All things considered, this recording proves fully deserving of a spot on any critic’s list of the year’s top new live recordings.  More information on Dog Years is available online now along with all The Winery Dogs’ latest news and more at:
