Made In Britain/The World Record

(Frontiers)

Label is certainly getting a lot of mileage out of their association with Mr. Coverdale. In April, they issued a double CD and DVD combination from 2011, in Japan. Now there’s this second double audio disc compilation. The initial 13 songs were recorded back home in Newcastle, England on said tour, while the remaining dozen selections are from across the globe. Given the two “competing” packages were culled from the same tour, there’s a large overlap of material, particularly on the first disc. While the chronologies are identical, unlike the 10-song Japanese set (which included a pair of solo spotlights), here you get ‘Evil Ways’, acoustic ‘Fare Thee Well’ and a crucial blues gem ‘Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City’. The second disc houses the more interesting tidbits. Only a trio are reprised from earlier this year and include not only the American MTV hits (interestingly left out of most dates: ‘Slide It In’, ‘Bad Boys’ and ‘Deeper The Love’) as well as old DEEP PURPLE covers (a cappella rendition to ‘Soldier Of Fortune’ or ‘Burn/Stormbringer’ combo). Hard to believe that ‘Cryin In The Rain’ is missing from all four discs! Doug Aldrich gets his moment to shine on ‘Steal Your Heart Away’ (complete with female backing singers), as Coverdale introduces, “Playing on the instrument of the Devil, the slide guitar.” Elsewhere (acoustic ‘One Of These Days’) he coyly announces, “If I forget the fucking words, forgiveth me. We haven’t done this in a year.” Coverdale doesn’t spend a lot of time conversing with the audience(s), but in Blighty, he lets a little more British jargon invade his speech. Guitar driven ‘Lay Down Your Love’ sounds like an early 80s composition, despite being written almost 30 years later. ‘Pistols At Dawn’ is a 6+ minute instrumental duel between Aldrich and Reb Beach that leads into ‘Snake Dance’, a short voiceless, full-band workout. ‘The Badger’ is another lively 90 second instrumental. Given the two recent Frontiers offerings, this is the superior collection.
