CD REVIEW Night Ranger

Band : Night Ranger
Album title : 24 Strings And A Drummer – Live And Acoustic
Label : Frontiers Records
Distributor : Rough Trade Benelux – Tone Entertainment
Release Date : 19/10/2012
Release : CD/DVD

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album, Night Ranger has released a special album, a collection of songs, played totally acoustic during a gig at The Studio D Recording in Sausalito, CA in may 2012, for a select number of fans. It’s nice to hear another version of some of their well known songs, and by playing the set acoustically, they once again show what good musicians they are, but in the end it’s just a collection of old songs in a new jacket. And if you ask me the original version was already good enough. 

Conclusion: this is something for a die hard fan of Night Ranger who absolutely wants to own every record they ever released. I didn’t have the DVD version to review, so I cannot comment on that.
