Sjak : I do not really understand why it had to take so long before this in 2006 recorded live-registration has finally been brought to market, but it has to be said that it definitely has been worth the long wait. In that year Heart performed in Atlantic City for the VH1 program Decades Rock Live and because of the presence of many guests, the interesting setlist and the great musical (and especially vocal) performance it truly became a magical evening.
Janes Addiction founder Dave Navarro accompanied the band on the stage for great performances of Bebe Le Strange, Straight On, Misty Mountain Hop and Crazy On You, while singer-songwriters Gretchen Wilson and Rufus Wainwright were present in Even It Up, Rock n Roll and Dog & Butterfly. And as if that was not enough yet Alice In Chains and Duff McKagan came on stage with the band for spectacular performances of Would? and Rooster, while country singer Carrie Underwood participated in a fantastic version of the mega-hit Alone. The absolute highlight of the evening was however an awesome performance of Barracuda, for which every guest musicians joined the band.
Also twelve years after the actual date this Live In Atlantic City remains a great display of a memorable and fantastic show of Heart and guests and therefore it is a very sensible decision to finally make this available for the bigger audience. Melodic rock fans must purchase this without any hesitation as you just cannot ignore Heart in absolute top shape.
