Graham Bonnet – Anthology 1968-2017

Graham Bonnet – Anthology 1968-2017

13th April 2017 0 By John Deaux

Finally, Graham Bonnet is getting a decent career retrospective in the form of 2 audio CDs & 1 DVD. This set spans not only his early solo material, but right the way through Rainbow, MSG, Alcatrazz & Blackthorne to name a few.

There’s a few rarities that are appearing on CD for the 1st time & the DVD not only has track by track segments recorded especially for this set but also contains rare live footage from Alcatrazz & Impelliteri. The DVD itself is well worth the purchase price of this set with its massive running time of 102 minutes.

The booklet is tremendous. Loads of information from the legend himself, detailing all the bands he’s worked with & sharing his memories of those times.

The CDs are immense. So much great music & forgotten classics from little known projects, Forcefield, Taz Taylor & the Japanese band Anthem. Of course you get the classics of Night Games (from his solo album of the same name)  Blue Boar (from Alcatrazz) & the tremendous All Night Long, although, this is the 2015 version & previously unreleased.

Graham has worked with so many great musician such as Cozy Powell, Jon Lord, Rick Parfitt, Francis Rossi & Mick Moody to name a few & all are fully represented is this magnificent collection.

This is as good as it gets. So much more than a greatest hits. This is Graham Bonnet at HIS very best & it doesn’t get much better than this. 

For fans of classic rock & metal.

Score 8.5/10
