Product Description

Limited Commemorative Package World Tour I Double CD, CD Case and booklet NM

Amazon.com

Garth Brooks's obvious inspirations for Double Live were all those 1970s double-album concert recordings from album-oriented-rock influences such as Bob Seger, Kiss, and Peter Frampton. The difference between those classic-rock sets and this one is that Live Bullet, Alive and Frampton Comes Alive all helped to rescue their respective artists from virtual obscurity. Coming as they did from still largely unknown commodities, they seemingly promised nothing yet delivered everything. Already a superstar, Brooks merely promises more of the same on Double Live. He delivers, too. "You guys already know what's coming, don't you?" he asks at one point. "And you know what? You're right." Loaded with 22 hits (and three new tunes) recorded in any number of unnamed cities (and studios, too) over the past seven years, Double Live finds Brooks exaggerating his most irritating tics--the Wynnona-ish growls, the ridiculously elastic twang--in the process ruining even his finest songs. Still, even those convinced that Brooks is the Garth Vader of country music will be brought to pause as tens of thousands of admiring fans sing earnestly along to "The Dance" or "Unanswered Prayers," and scream their way through the anthem "Friends in Low Places." (Please note: You may receive any one of the album's six different covers.) --David Cantwell

Garth Brooks isn't your traditional and typical country singer. With music roots that go back to his love for Kiss when he was younger, it is obvious through this double live album that he tries to emulate what Kiss did on their own Double Live albums, and through their shows. And you know what, Garth succeeds.

Nothing about this double live album is dull. Garth shows through his music what a true performer he is, and you only need to listen to this album to understand why everyone raves about his showmanship.

With classics that range from Friends in Low Places to newer songs such as The American Honky Tonk Bar association Garth brings a little rock to his country, and a little country to his rock, and he does it exceptionally well.

Garth brings his own style to country.

In each song he performs he speaks volumes with emotion. Songs like "We shall be free" touch the soul completely.

Other songs such as "The American Honky Tonk-Bar Association" and his exceptional cover and redo of Aerosmith's "The Fever" has one tapping their foot along to the beat of the music.

Whether he is being cocky and confident, or humble and tearful, through and through he brings emotion to the music, and it is heard not only through his voice, and the lyrics but through the crowd, and the atmosphere.

Songs such as "The Thunder rolls" and "Friends in low places" are two songs, in which the extra verses can only be heard in concert and the response to those extra verses is enough to hear it.

Garth's connection with his fans is obvious, and what is even more obvious is his own enjoyment at seeing how much his fans love his shows.

This double CD delivers a great selection of Garth's music, with superior audio quality. It is reasonably priced, and it is packaged with the fan in mind. Listening to "Unanswered Prayers" is an experience - the crowd sings along with Garth, which is incredible. Its almost as if he has 20,000 back-up singers. Of course, what's a Garth live album without great tracks like "Friends In Low Places", "The Thunder Rolls", "Callin' Baton Rouge", and "Ain't Goin' Down (Until The Sun Comes Up)"? "Double Live" is impressive as far as delivering the sound on stage to the sound on the CD! I was personally amazed by the quality - I can only think of a handful of live CDs that compare to this double CD. Its a perfect souvenir for anybody who went to one of his shows and lived the experience.

Ten years ago, my aunt visited Fan Fair and came back all excited about this new artist by the name of Garth Brooks.Not being a country music fan myself, my reaction was (with a sneer) what on earth is a Garth? Since that time I have come to truely appreciate the diversity, range, and sincereity of the man and his music. This CD is really the next-best thing to being at a Garth concert. While some might feel that the "fans" detract from the music, all that noise is a big part of Garth "Live".As I listen to this CD, I get "goosebumps", my heart races and I shed a few tears to "The Dance","Unanswered Prayers", and "The River". Garth"s ability to connect with the people is what makes him the man, and star that he is. If you've never had the opportunity to see Garth,or want to perhaps "re-live"that feeling of being there--then this is the CD to own. Go Garth!

There's a reason why this is the highest selling live album of all time and why this is my favorite album of all time. There's just something about Garth live that is even better than his studio albums. The only thing I would add to this cd is his cover of "American Pie".

I heard one of the songs on the radio where the audiance was very enthusiastic and sang along. If that is something you enjoy, then this is a good album for you as many of the songs have heavy audiance sing along participation. If you just want to hear Garth brooks sans the background audiance participation you might want to try another of his albums.

It's Garth. It's Garth LIVE. You feel as if you're in the audience and singing along to all the classics. This 2 disc CD set is so great, I have it in my car's 6-CD changer and only play the two these 2 CD's are in. If you love Garth's songs and Country classics, this is THE one to get.

I got this Double Live Cd in Garth Brooks Walmart Limited series box and it is my favorite. I have never been a big Garth Brooks fan but I did like some of his songs like Friends in Low Places but now I like his more upbeat songs like Papa loved Mama, Callin' Baton Rouge and Tearin' it up. I also like more serious songs like The Thunder Rolls, Unanswered Prayers and Standing Outside The Fire. I don't really like the other Cd's that came in the box other than the dvd with music videos and live performances. The double live sounds great and yes he does let the audience sing like in unanswered prayers but its still good.
