POISON Seven Days Live Armoury Records (2008)


Recorded live at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1993, and in support of fourth album 'Seven Days', this live CD from Poison is from an interesting period in the band's career. Original guitarist and all round party boy, CC Deville had left the band and their recent 'Native Tongue' album, featuring Richie Kotzen on guitar, was a more serious, blues edged record.

That said, I was at the actual concert and remember it being a great gig - of the 17 tracks here six are from the aforementioned 'Native Tongue', the rest of the set completed by Poison classics such as 'Your Mama Don't Dance', 'Look What The Cat Dragged In', 'Unskinny Bop' and, of course, 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn'.

The immediate years following the '7 Days Live' tour were not that great for the band. Kotzen left to be replaced by Blues Saraceno, with whom the band recorded the album 'Crack A Smile', an album that would not be released until 2000, by which time the original line up had reformed and were touring in support of their recently released Greatest Hits album.

Poison has continued to tour ever since and, alongside other '80's bands such as Cinderella, Tesla and Motley Crue, have re-found their audience.

'Seven Days Live' is a good live album and definitely one for the collection of Poison fans.
