The biggest treat to this DVD is, we get to see the band on the "Native Tongue" tour with guitarist Ritchie Kotzen. While most Poison fans detest all things Kotzen related, I actually dug what he brought to the band in 1993. The guy was a talented song writer and guitar player, and he more than handled C.C. Deville's parts in this DVD. Another shocker with this DVD release is that most of the songs represented here are from the aforementioned "Native Tongue", which we know didn't sell very well for Poison here in the states. To me, this is a real treat. We get to see them perform songs they probably have never performed since and probably never will again.
The quality of the DVD is very cool as well. Some of the concert is in black & white, however most is in marvelous bright colors. The band also sounds very tight and business-like on this DVD. Bret's singing is decent (for him I mean), and Kotzen, Dall and Rockett kick all kinds of butt! The song selection is pretty much what you'd expect except for the "Native Tongue" songs, but for the most part they include the "hits".
If you like Poison, or you've seen them in concert like myself and others, you should really cjeck this DVD out. There's no C.C. on it, but it's pretty cool to see Ritchie Kotzen do his thing.
Back to the DVD. I thought it was great to see Richie Kotzen perform with Poison. He brings a lot to the table. He is a much more proficient guitarist than CC. While CC was good, Richie is great. His vocals were a great plus to the mix also. I guess Richie was just kind of a strange bird for the band, from what I remember reading back in the day. Most great musicians are usually half a bubble off anyways.
I seen some complaints about the sound quality, but remember this is going back to 93 and they probably never had intentions of releasing this. I found it easy to listen to and watch. Also, somebody mentioned they did not do enough of there older material. I thought they pretty much covered all the bases. Then again, I was pro Native Tounge.
Oh by the way, Richie Kotzen just released a bunch of live stuff that is available and he does a great version of Stand.
Native tongue actually showed growth by Poison.unfortunatly rock in general was slipping in popularity at the time.If it were a new release today It would do much better.
This video just rocks and has a cool blues funk as my wife says!
The sound is mixed perfectly!! and the video mix is what all concert videos should look like!!
After watching Swallow This Live and Live Raw And Uncut I have to say this is their best video!
I think they need to revisit the blues rock vane they were digging on with this!!!
The proof is in C.C.`s "blues" guitar solo in Live and Raw. Now if he would just stand still and concentrate on his playing and let Bret show everyone why he is one of the best front men in the world.
If you want to see and here Poison the way they should be seen and heard this is the video to get.
Live and raw is great but this is better less guitar wails and fighting for the spot light!!
