Foreigner's Alive & Rockin CD Coming Next Month
Eagle Rock have set a May 29th release date for Foreigner's Alive & Rockin', recorded at one of Europe's most popular Hard Rock fests, the 2006 Bang Your Head Festival in Balingen, Germany.
This 9-track concert, previously released on DVD only will be available for the first time on CD.
"My initial musical vision for Foreigner was to combine blues and R'n'B with British Rock and make it sound soulful and authentic," says guitarist Mick Jones. "I'd grown up in England and had the English influence but I was also inspired by many elements of American music from Mississippi blues to country. Foreigner was the vehicle to get that musical blend across."
That "blend" was never more evident than on this rockin' night as Jones—with vocalist Kelly Hansen, drummer Jason Bonham, keyboardist Jeff Jacobs, multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel (guitars, saxophone, flute) and bassist Jeff Pilson—knocked out a crowd-pleasing set that included eight U.S. Top 20 hits including anthems "Juke Box Hero" "Cold As Ice" and "Hot Blooded."
1) Double Vision
2) Head Games
3) Dirty White Boy
4) Cold As Ice
6) Feels Like The First Time
8) Juke Box Hero / Whole Lotta Love
9) Hot Blooded
