THUNDER

LIVE AT DONINGTON

1990 & 1992

OCTOBER 2013

 

 

WHEN ROCK RULED

 

 

As a memento for those like me that were there this is absolutely essential. As a document of a great British Rock band at their live peak this is essential. As a document that marks a point in time when rock still ruled despite the upcoming dirty tide of grunge this is essential.

 


Of course the downside is that most of us have heard pretty much all of this before, with both the BBC recorded 1990 set (when Thunder opened) and the 1992 set (when they climbed the bill) already available.

 


It’s the bonus DVD that really sets off this package and underlines what a great and important live band Thunder was and indeed still is. And it’s only here that you will get to see the three video tracks from 1990 thought lost – ‘Until My Dying Day’; ‘Fired Up’ and ‘Dirty Love’.

 


So if you just want to relive the memories you should grab a copy from the Thunder store. For those of you not familiar with this particular Great British institution then this isn’t a ba place to start either. Seeing Thunder live with Whitesnake and Journey earlier in the year it was these guys who stole the show and that’s about the best recommendation I can give.
