Black Country Communion @ High Voltage 24/07/2011



Black Country Communion are a fairly new group, but are a "supergroup"- Joe Bonamassa, Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham & Derek Sherinian. This is a band that has a lot ot live up to based on the careers of the individual members. As a new band they're at a disadvantage to bands like Thunder or Thin Lizzy who have plenty of crowd pleasing hits to include in their set. Black Country Communion only have two albums of material to work with.
The sound is definitely very 1970s Rock - the unmistakable vocals of Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) certainly help give that 70's feel but there's more to it than that - its the overall feel of the combination of the music and the vocals.

The show is closed with a Joe Bonamassa song (The Ballad of John Henry) followed by the highlight of their set for most people - a cover of Deep Purple's "Burn".

Although this was my first time listening to Black Country Communion, based on their performance at High Voltage its not going to be the last time - I'll certainly be checking out their albums and hope to see them perform live again.
