includes bonus live audio CD
The DVD features over two hours of live concert footage from three sold out shows in Berlin, Dublin and Glasgow. The footage documents the end of the band s 2007 tour in support of Baby 81, their most recent full-length release. The live audio was mixed by BRMC s own Peter Hayes and the gritty cinematography keeps the band s music front and center while viewers experience the show both from the stage and from the audience s perspective.
Over ninety minutes of unadorned, intimate behind-the-scenes footage is captured on the second bonus DVD along with additional performance footage. Viewers accompany BRMC as they record songs from Howl, see the making of the Weapon of Choice video, and witness inspired, impromptu off-stage performances.
The package is rounded out by a bonus audio CD featuring 14 songs from the concert film and a gorgeous 48-page booklet of previously unseen backstage and candid photos of the band.

As a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club fan from the early days on, I've been looking forward to an official live release of this band for a long time, because, let's admit it, the live show of BRMC is where it's at, more so that their studio albums (which aren't bad, of course). One of the reasons that I remain such a huge fan of the band is that, even though their critical perception and appreciation has been on the rise for many years, they continue to play mostly small-to-meduim sized clubs and venues, but for the occasional festival or opening for a much bigger band.
"Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Live" consists of 2 DVDs and 1 CD. On DVD 1 (127 min.) we get 22 songs pulled from the band's "Baby 81" European tour, specifically from shows in Glasgow, Dublin and Berlin. Obviously there are a bunch of "Baby 81" tracks on here, including opener "Berlin", "Took Out A Loan", "Weapon of Choice" and others, but let me point out the mammoth version of "American X" as the best of the bunch. The 3 other studio albums are well represented too, albeit a bit light on "Howl" songs. If you've been to a BRMC show, you know that lighting is pretty much optional, and dim at best, and this DVD reflects that. Not surprisingly, the footage is in black and white. The editing is too jumpy for me, frankly. The audio quality is great, though, especially if you have a home-entertainment theatre-style set up, which I happen to have. This concert film is not bad, but could've been brilliant with more subdued editing (do we really need to get a different camera angel every 2 seconds or so?).

This set is worth far more than it costs. And that's just for the 2 DVDs. The CD is just an added bonus.Simply amazing rock and roll music.Published on November 12, 2013 by Matthew B. Redmond
