RUN DMC Live At Montreux 2001 Eagle Records EAGCD357 (2007)

Like most Rock fans I first became aware of Run DMC in 1986 when they teamed up with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry to create the world s first rock/rap crossover record, and massive worldwide hit 'Walk This Way', a record that gave a massive boost to the careers of both bands- Aerosmith at this point had reformed but were not in healthy shape career wise, had it not been for this hit they may not have managed the highly successful comeback that has made them one of the biggest selling bands of the late 80's/90's.

This live CD was recorded at Run DMC's appearance at the 2001 Montreux Festival, one of their last gigs before the tragic murder of Jam Master Jay. The highlights include 'It's Like That', 'It's Tricky', 'King of Rock', 'Peter Piper' and 'Walk This Way'- complete with samples of Perry and Tyler and sounding as good as it did 15 years earlier (and a hell of a lot better than the recent effort by Girls Aloud and The Sugababes!!!).

A lasting document to a truly groundbreaking band.
