Rainbow’s New Live Recording Is A “Shining” New Offering From Eagle Rock

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

Veteran rock outfit Rainbow is set to shine again early next month when it releases its latest live recording Live in Birmingham 2016.  Set for release Friday, June 9, the recording is the final piece in a collection of performances from the band held last year during the band’s European tour.  Two of the performances from that brief tour were initially released on DVD.  This recording, while only available on 2CD set and digital platforms – the set’s only negative – rounds out that short stint of live dates.  Even being available only on audio-specific platforms, it still boasts its share of positives, beginning with its set list.  This will be discussed shortly.  The band’s performance of the featured songs is just as important to note as the songs themselves.  It will be discussed later.  The concert’s sound quality rounds out its most important elements.  Each noted element is important in its own right as will be shown. All things considered, they make Live in Birmingham 2016 one more of this year’s top new live CDs.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s new live Rainbow recording Live in Birmingham 2016 is one of this year’s top new live CDs.  An accompaniment to the label’s previously released live Rainbow recordings from the band’s 2016 European tour, this recording boasts plenty of positives beginning with its extensive 15-song (technically 16-song) set list.  The set list, which is spread across two discs, features an extensive collection of Rainbow’s hits along with a number of Deep Purple’s biggest hits, too.  On the outermost layer of the set list, audiences will appreciate that the set list balances the Deep Purple songs and Rainbow songs quite expertly.  Both bands are represented with eight songs.  Two of the songs, ‘Black Night’ and ‘Woman From Tokyo’ are joined in a mini-medley.  Even with that in mind, they are still two songs, bringing the set list’s total count to 16 songs.  Again, this makes the bands’ song count eight each.

The expertly balanced representation of Deep Purple and Rainbow within the set list is just one part of what makes the set list stand out.  The range of albums from which the songs are pulled adds even more to the importance of the set list.  In regards to the Rainbow portion of the set list, which is interspersed with the Deep Purple portion, audiences will be pleased to see that only two of Rainbow’s records – Bent Out Of Shape (1983) and Stranger In Us All (1995) – are not represented in this concert.  The band’s debut 1975 album Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow is represented twice in the form of ‘Catch The Rainbow’ and ‘Man on the Silver Mountain’ while Difficult To Cure (1981) also gets a pair of songs in the form of its title track and ‘Spotlight Kid.’  Rising, Down To Earth, Long Live Rock ‘N Roll and Straight Between The Eyes each get a nod, too.

The set list’s Deep Purple nods obviously don’t pull from every one of that band’s albums.  However, It does do a respectable job of representing the band’s early days, reaching all the way back to its seminal 1972 album Machine Head and even to 1995 with the 25th anniversary re-issue of Deep Purple in Rock.  That re-issue is represented through the song ‘Black Night,’ which was originally recorded as a B-Side that never made it onto the original album.  Stormbringer (1974) is also represented here as are the band’s self-titled 1973 album, Burn (1974) and Perfect Strangers (1984).  The latter of the albums, Perfect Strangers marked Blackmore’s return to the band from Rainbow, making it an important record to represent in Blackmore’s return to the stage in this concert.  Keeping in mind the Deep Purple and Rainbow records represented here and their equally balanced representation, it becomes clear why the concert’s set list is so important to its overall presentation.  The whole of the set list paints a rich, vivid picture of Blackmore’s career while also offering plenty of entertaining compositions.  The set list is only one of the elements to be considered in examining the recording’s whole.  The band’s performance of the set list is just as important to discuss in examining the concert’s overall presentation.

The set list featured in this recording is a key piece of the recording’s whole.  That is proven through its balance of Deep Purple and Rainbow songs as well as the representation of each band’s body of work within the recording.  It is not the recording’s only important element.  The band’s performance of that extensive, yet well-balanced, set list is just as important to examine as the set list itself.  Front man Ronnie Romero keeps audiences completely enthralled with his vocals in every song whether powering through ‘Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and ‘Highway Star,’ soaring through ‘Stargazer’ or driving the band through ‘Burn.’  Blackmore’s work on the guitar is just as powerful in each performance while David Keith (drums) and Bob Nouveau (bass) partner to drive the band’s rhythm section solidly.  The band’s collective fire burns bright through each performance, making the concert engaging from start to finish.  Even in the occasional interludes, Romero keeps listeners engaged showing his prowess as a front man as he interacts with the audience.  The fact that the band doesn’t spend an overt amount of time between songs makes this even more interesting to note.  Simply put, the band makes the most of every moment, whether performing or taking time to talk to the audience.  The whole of that presentation makes this recording even more enjoyable, even though it can only be enjoyed in an audio-only platform.  Despite that, the band’s performance both in-song and between proves to be just as important to this recording as the set list itself.  It is not the last of the recording’s most important elements, either.  Its sound quality rounds out its most important elements.

The set list that makes up the body of Live in Birmingham 2016 and the band’s performance thereof are both key pieces of the recording’s whole.  That has already been pointed out and proven.  While both elements are clearly important pieces of the record’s whole, they are not its only important elements.  The recording’s sound quality (I.E. its sound engineering/mixing) is also important to note.  The concert’s sound starts off a little bit muddled, with Romero’s vocals being somewhat overpowered by the rest of the band’s instrumentation.  By the time the band works its way into ‘Mistreated,’ that issue disappears, making the concert an enjoyable listen right to the end.  Whether the initial audio issue rose at the concert or in post-production is anyone’s guess.  That aside, it thankfully doesn’t last too long before it is finally eliminated.  The end result is a recording that balances relatively well each musician’s part with those of his counterparts, making for a concert that expertly highlights each musician and in turn entertains and engages audiences from start to finish.  When this is considered along with the equally important set list and band’s performance thereof, the whole of those elements reveals the recording to be an experience that audiences, whether fans of Blackmore, Deep Purple, Rainbow or all three, will appreciate.  That is the case even despite the fact that the recording is available only on audio-specific platforms.  They reveal the recording to be one of this year’s top new live CDS.

Rainbow: Live in Birmingham 2016 is one of this year’s top new live CDs.  That is due in part to a set list that lifts equally from Blackmore’s time with Rainbow and Deep Purple.  The band’s performance of the expertly balanced set list adds to the recording’s presentation.  The recording’s sound quality rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is, as already noted, important in its own right to the recording’s whole.  All things considered, they make Live in Birmingham 2016 a presentation that, despite being available exclusively on audio platforms, an enjoyable recording and one that proves to be one of the year’s top new live CDs.  It will be available in stores and online Friday, June 9.  More information on this and other titles from Eagle Rock Entertainment is available online now at:

Front man and band co-founder Jesse Hughes spoke to the audience before the concert, stressing the band felt finishing the concert that was so tragically cut short in November was the right thing to do. He said the city’s support of the band drove the group to decide it had to finish its previous concert as a way to honor those fans and the fans who lost their lives in that horrible event.

“The people of Paris have always been incredible to us, and our feeling of love toward this beautiful city and its people has been reinforced a million times over this past month,” Hughes said.  “Hearing the stories of the survivors, the injured and those who have lost loved ones has been overwhelming.  Not returning to finish our set was never an option.”

As an additional bonus for fans, the band and Eagle Rock Entertainment have also included a trio of live performances from the band’s Oct. 2015 performance at L.A.’s Teragram Ballroom.  Those performances are of the songs ‘Anything ‘Cept The Truth,’ ‘Bad Dream Mama’ and ‘Shasta Beast.’  These bonus clips are not included in the recording’s 2CD platform.

Eagle Rock, Arcade Fire Start 2017 On A High Note With ‘Reflektor Tapes’

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

Arcade Fire has become one of the biggest names in the indie rock realm ever since its formation in 2001. In the now 16 years that have passed since the band’s creation, its fame has grown exponentially with millions of records being sold and countless shows being sold out.  One of those shows, the band’s June 6, 2014 concert at Earl’s Court in London, became the focus of the band’s first live recording early this year.  The concert, dubbed Reflektor Tapes, was part of the band’s yearlong “Reflektor Tour,” which ran from 2013 to 2014.  It is available now on DVD and Blu-ray in stores and online. The recording is a work that will appeal both to devoted fans and to those less familiar with the Canada-based outfit.  That is due in part to the recording’s set list.  This will be discussed shortly.  The band’s performance of said set list is just as important to examine as the set list itself in considering the recording’s presentation.  It will be discussed later.  The concert’s bonus material is also an important piece of its whole to consider and certainly not the last important element to note here.  The concert’s cinematography and its availability on various platforms could just as easily be examined.  All things considered, Reflektor Tapes proves to be, again, a live recording that will appeal to fans new and old alike, and gives it potentially a place on any critic’s list of the year’s top new live recordings.

Arcade Fire’s new live recording Reflektor Tapes is a work that will appeal to the band’s most devoted fans and those less familiar with the band’s work.  That is due in part to the concert’s set list.  The 20-song set list pulls from all four of the band’s current albums.  The band’s most recent recording, Reflektor (2013) receives the most nods in the concert’s set list, with a total of eight of the record’s songs being included in the show.  The band’s 2004 debut record Funeral received the second most nods with six of its songs being included in the set list.  2007’s Neon Bible was the least represented of the band’s albums in this show, with only three of its songs featured here.  Though the concert’s set list is made up largely of songs from Reflektor, the fact that the band pulled from all four of its current records is in itself impressive.  It presents audiences with a healthy sampling of the band’s work so far.  To that end, the concert’s set list shows to be an important part of this recording’s whole.  It is just one of the recording’s important elements.  The band’s performance of the show’s set list is important to examine, too.

The set list at the center of Reflektor is a clearly important piece of the recording’s presentation to note.  That is because it makes a valid attempt to represent all four of the band’s albums so far.  That means that it gives audiences a relatively healthy sampling of the band’s work so far regardless of fans’ familiarity with the band and its work.  While clearly an important part of the presentation’s whole, it is not the recording’s only important element to examine.  The band’s performance of the set list is just as important to examine as the set list itself.  The band’s performance throughout the concert will keep fans at home just as entertained and engaged as the audience that was in attendance at the show’s taping.  Front man Win Butler leads the way with his completely kinetic presence.  Butler moves throughout the massive stage at Earl’s Court and is clearly never afraid to interact with closely with the audience, either.  Band co-founder and keyboardist Regine Chassagne is just as active as Butler even as she maintains her place on-stage.  Her energy and enthusiasm adds even more enjoyment to the band’s overall performance.  Much the same can be said of the rest of the band’s members.  Between the touring musicians and the band’s permanent members, the band’s collective body generates an energy and exuberance that translates just as well on-screen as in person.  Because it translates so well, it adds even more depth to the recording, thus making the recording even more appealing for audiences.  Even as important as the band’s performance proves to be to the recording’s overall presentation, it is still not the last of the recording’s most important elements.  The bonus material included with the recording is important to examine, too.

The set list that makes up Reflektor Tapes’ body, and the band’s performance thereof are both key pieces of the recording’s overall presentation.  That is because of the depth that both elements generate in themselves and collectively.  While both elements are obviously important in their own right, they re not its only important elements.  The bonus material included in the recording should be examined, too.  The bonus material featured in the recording includes a handful of music videos and a full-length documentary. The documentary is the centerpiece of the recording’s bonus material.  One part tour documentary, one part behind the scenes making-of presentation and one part commentary, it follows the band on the road while also maintaining the band’s record of bringing attention to the Haitian culture and the plight of the nation’s people.  It also takes audiences behind the scenes, albeit briefly, of the album’s creative process.  There are those who have deeply criticized the documentary since the recording’s release.  The reality is that a close watch shows it is not as fractious as it seems.  The documentary is meant, in whole, to be a glimpse into the band, its life on the road and its influences, not some huge presentation.  Keeping that in mind, the documentary develops a new identity that makes it worth the watch.  In watching it more closely, audiences will find that it is just as important to the whole of Reflektor Tapes as its main feature concert.  When one takes into consideration the new appreciation for the documentary and sets that appreciation alongside the appreciation for the concert and the band’s performance throughout, the whole of these elements makes Reflektor Tapes a recording that will appeal to so many audiences—one that could be considered one of the year’s top new live recordings.

Reflektor Tapes, Arcade Fire’s new live recording, is a valiant new live effort from the Canadian indie rock out.  From a set list that spans the band’s body of work to a performance whose energy expertly translates on screen to a body of bonus material that adds even more depth to the recording and more, the whole of this recording will appeal to the band’s most devout fans and its newest fans alike.  All things considered, those elements noted and not noted combine to make Reflektor Tapes a work that could be considered one of this year’s top new live recordings.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on Reflektor Tapes is available online along with all of the band’s latest news and more at:
