Saxon - The Saxon Chronicles - Digipack
SAXON belong to the bands connected most tightly with the W:O:A® and therefore are a gladly witnessed guest on one of the big festival stages. So in 2001 where the grand masters of British metal let the eagle land and offered a magnificent cross cut through their repertoire in a great playing mood. The first of two DVDs of the package called "The SAXON chronicles" contains exactly that special gig and it really smokes. The second DVD presents scenes from the tour life of the great Brits, TV interviews and live appearances plus official videoclips from back in the day. It is already a must have for true fans of the pack but especially for greenhorns it is the best way to get an overview over SAXONs beautiful music. As icing on the cake you receive the 1989 live album "Rocknroll gypsies" as bonus CD featuring the tour set of those days with a few nowadays rather unusual songs. The original CD is longs since out of print and faded from the scene, so it is a great little rarity. The overall sound here and on the DVDs is great. For the DVDs the language is English, the format PAL, the band width 16 : 9 and the age limit for these 215 minutes of nothing but pure anthem like British steel is 12.
