Dead Can Dance: In Concert

Posted by Scott Holstad on May 21, 2013

If you’ve been reading me for awhile, you know that Dead Can Dance is my favorite band and has been for many years. You’ll also remember that I finally got to see them in concert last September in Atlanta, where I lucked into (expensive!) second row middle seats and had an awesome experience. It’s one I’ll never forget. Well, now they’ve just released a live CD called “In Concert” and it’s the show they’ve been touring the world with, the one I saw. Since I have everything they’ve ever put out, I naturally had to get it. First, I put it on my Amazon Wish List, but as no one ever buys me anything from it, I had second thoughts. I had additional thoughts when I read the Amazon reviews. Apparently the CD is an abridged version! WTF? You can get the complete version on vinyl and digital download. 16 songs. Otherwise, the CD has 11 and is missing some important songs. Now why would they do that? That makes utterly no sense to me at all. So I went to iTunes and downloaded it, for a reasonable fee, and have been listening to it ever since, enjoying reliving my concert experience. If you’re unfamiliar with Dead Can Dance, well, they’re hard to categorize. They have a big goth following because their first album back in 1981 was pretty goth. But they got away from that pretty quickly and started playing medieval, Celtic, Middle Eastern tunes, and more. I guess you could say they’re “world music” now, and that’s about right. I have a link to them on my blog under the music section. I encourage you to go check them out. They’ve produced some amazing stuff over the years. In Concert is a good album. I just wish the CD was complete. That’s very odd….
