4.0 out of 5 stars more and less September 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Dave Mason's new live release is a welcome-yet-mixed bag for longtime fans who may have wondered what he's been up to during the past decade, beyond filling in as a guitarist with Fleetwood Mac. "Live at Sunrise" is a fine concert workout with a tough, hard-rocking band, featuring journeyman guitar ace John Sambataro. The dual-guitar attack highlights Mason's early rock influence (and lead-guitar muscle) as opposed to his more pop-oriented leanings in the late seventies and beyond. In fact, the solo-trading during the 15-minute "Look at You Look at Me" will please both hardcore fans of early-seventies-extended-solo music and discerning fans of Mason's seminal 1970 album "Alone Together."
However, the set list on "Live at Sunrise" varies only slightly from another recent Mason release -- also a live album -- "The 40,000 Headmen Tour" (essentially a duo album with former Traffic partner Jim Capaldi). That disc revealed an artist's career in a contemporary perspective, with insights and surprises coming through varied arrangements of concert staples and old chestnuts (such as a moody, acoustic version of "The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys"). "Live at Sunrise," on the other hand, doesn't reveal much more than a spirited electric outing...and one not much different from 1976's "Certified Live," in terms of material, arrangements, or performance. Thus, a question arises: has Dave Mason matured as an artist at all over the past quarter century?
It's an unnecessary question, and the blame for its being raised lies squarely at the feet of Mason's label, marketers, and packagers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Concert CD July 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lately it seems that all Dave Mason can release are Live concert CD's. I guess that makes sense since he has more greatest hit CD's out than any group for artist I know. Although I would rate this release a little lower than the 40,000 Headman Tour CD of a couple of years ago I still enjoy listening to it.
When comparing Live at Sunrise to 40,000 Headman there are some good points & bad points. The bad points are:
1) No Jim Capaldi. He brought something to the previous release that isn't usually seen in a Dave Mason concert, a contrast.
2) For some reason Mason has gotten more & more into growling during his singing. Occasionaly it's OK but here he does it 3 or 4 times each song. In my opinion, Masom voice has not suffered with age when he just sings, but when he does this growlin thing it makes him sound raspy.
The good points:
1) The music mix. Yes I know 7 of the 9 songs are the same titles as 40,000 Headman but Mason has the talent and energy to make them sound unique. When you add "Let it go, Let it flow" & "Look at you, Look at me" you get two songs not heard for a while. "Look at you, Look at me" has always been MY favorite Mason piece and this 14 minute version does not disappoint. As far as I'm concerned it's his best rendition.
2) The inclusion of a second guitar. Mason's music almost requires two guitars. Otherwise, he has to do double duty which detracts from his solos. All you have to do is compare "All Along the Watchtower" from the two CD's and you will understand.
3) The sound quality is a little better here. I'm not sure why but it may have something to do with the size of the concert halls.
There you have it. I would recommend this to any Mason fan, and any live rock from the past fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's Feelin Alright! September 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dave Mason is one of several classic rockers who's career has spanned over thirty years. This live collection captures a master guitarist and singer sounding better than ever. Mason was one of the founding members of Traffic before embarking on a thirty year solo career that included one of the great rock albums of alltime "Alone Together". This cd is living proof that oldtimers from the classic rock era can still play well and belt out a tune without the help of studio computerized voice-overs and fake mucisians that is so prevalent in the modern pop market. Many of the Dave Mason classics are here like "We Just Disagree", "Only You Know And I Know", "All Along The Watchtower", "Look At You Look At Me", And the Traffic classics "Dear MR. Fantasy" and of course "Feelin Alright". My only complaint is it seems to be a tad too short with only nine songs, but what you get from this collection is all quality from beginning to end. His band sounds great and features Richard campbell[bass], John Sambataro[guitar], Bobby Scumaci[keyboards] and Greg Babcock[drums]. Checkout the DVD as well, which features some very interesting behind the scenes footage and outstanding picture quality and sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars unsung master in peak form December 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
in the 1970's era of Page,Blackmore,Montrose,Winter,ect guitar heroes--you
rarely if ever heard Dave Mason mentioned in the same breath.I believe that it is because Mr Mason is a great songwriter who plays guitar rather than a great guitar player who writes songs.The difference is Dave's hypnotic,flowing electric guitar work are many times forgotten until you
hear them again.I enjoy the riff miestering of Page,Blackmore,ect as much as anyone but NOBODY integrates it into great songwriting like Dave M.
The version of 40,000 headmen (old Traffic song--YES,Dave was an original
member of Traffic) will leave you breathless.Disc has a great crossection
of Dave's career all recorded wonderfully and played with joy and enthusiasm by a great band.This is a pretty obscure recording,thus it is more expensive than stuff I usually recommend--but this one--once you have it,will rarely if ever be out of your "heavy rotation".If you decide
to stretch slightly with your $--this is the one to do it with.really,truly not to be missed.
