The Dead Daisies – Live & Loud – Deluxe Edition Overview

Written by John Deaux

Since John Corabi took over vocal duties for The Dead Daisies, this band (I refuse to call it a super group) have not only gone from strength to strength but they’ve listened to their incredibly attentive fan base & issued a live album.

Not only is the live album 16 tracks in length & is quite possibly the best sounding live album in existence, it’s also the most beautifully presented limited edition deluxe box set too (only 2000 world-wide).

Just look at what you get!!!

Double 180gm colored vinyl (with CD in paper sleeve)
Exclusive Colored 7″ e.p (recorded at The Zoo at Planet Rock Radio’s highly coveted London fan-only gig in November 2016)
Digipak ( CD, DVD & massive photo booklet. The DVD features an exclusive “Live & Louder” documentary, a massive “Make Some Noise World Tour” documentary, all music videos of the “Make Some Noise” album cycle and a picture gallery..)
Poster
Sticker
Patch
Badge
Art Card

It’s an absolute stunner & not as expensive as you’d think (I was expecting around £70 but I managed to find a stockist &  paid half of that)

This is a limited edition that needs to be unwrapped, coveted & seen to be believed. This is as good as is gets for what is (probably) the best sounding live album of all time.

The badge, poster, post/artcard, patch are all of incredible quality. I’ve personally bought some amazing box sets in the past & this is one of the best I’ve seen purely for quality & price.

The 7″ sounds & looks absolutely stellar. So much better than I had imagined.

Sonically, the CD & vinyl are sublime. Admittedly the vinyl sounds better than the CD (even on colored vinyl). Having said that tho, both sound ridiculously good.

I love the fact that every track is recorded somewhere different & it’s not just a straight gig. 

If you want a really nice collectors item & you can find one on a shelf or if you’re tired of just buying just a CD or an album & want to have something different, even if you just have extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, do yourself a favor & BUY THIS, it’s an absolute belter.

I cannot recommend this purchase highly enough. Purchase of the year so far? Damn right it is!
