With his current album, the debut of Matthew Collings, with which the musician had consistently renounced the 'pure' ambience of his former project Sketches For Albinos, is re-released once again.
With a little delay, the review of the three phenomenal Germany dates - Hamburg, Munich, Berlin - of Black Country Communion is now also available as a double CD (or Do-LP). Those who have been there will still be wearing the gigs in their feel-good centre anyway, as Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian have presented themselves as an extremely conspiratorial community with unrestrained joy of playing. The qualities of Blu-ray (or double DVD) were already appreciated in eclipsed some time ago. So let's concentrate on the pure audio pleasure. And also in this form Hughes (in the third spring!), Bonamassa (anyway constantly in the bliss months), Bonham (slowly but surely stepping out of his father's shadow with BCC) and Sherinian (amazingly introverted with BCC) have presented a real top product. "Live Over Europe" is a classic rock experience in a class of its own that once again adds a big exclamation mark to the (live) qualities of this unique formation.
