Newly recorded studio versions of old classics are booming. These albums are necessary and were rare. Unless you reinterpret your own work, as Peter Gabriel did recently. Werner Nadolny's Jane, one of currently three existing Jane formations, rather follow the path of Styx or Journey, who have more or less played old classics in their current line-up. Each of the nine Jane songs from the seventies included here is also represented on the recently released 3-CD-plus-DVD box "The Best Of Jane", so everyone is talking about it. Of course none of the new interpretations is bad, but the songs and the sextet are simply too versed. The fact that Nadolny's Jane wants to bring herself into conversation as a legitimate successor to the original Jane is understandable from her point of view and possibly even justified. But a thrilling live DVD with a mix of old classics and tracks of their last studio work "Eternity" (2011) would have made more sense.
