Review:

Recorded live in Japan, Graham Bonnet has released Live In Tokyo 2017.  Here’s a unique set of songs from various points in Bonnet’s long singing career.  While many are from Bonnet’s solo career, you also get a bit of a best-of performance from various albums when he sang for Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group and Impelleterri.  While it’s a nice eclectic set of material, it’s far from being a crucial album by Graham Bonnet for your collection, unless you’re a die-hard fan.  Musically, it sounds great and Bonnet’s voice still sounds remarkably well.  The live audience adds a nice touch of energy to these songs that help them resonate beyond just a standard collection of hits.  If you’re a fan of Bonnet’s work, you’ll undoubtedly love this album.  After all, he’s a living rock legend that’s played with some of rock music’s greatest guitarists, like Micheal Schenker, Ritchie Blackmore, and Yngwie Malmsteen, just to name a few.  This is classic rock and roll performed with authenticity and integrity.  When they say “they don’t make ’em like this anymore”, this is what they’re referring to.  Graham Bonnet has a loyal following of avid listeners, all of whom should be chomping at the bit to get this nice live album.
