Run DMC Live at Montreux 2001

In 12 years of blogging, this might be my first album review. Anyway, so one day I’m jogging around the track when Last.Fm randomly decides to play me a live version of Run DMC’s “King of Rock” rather than the studio version. Holy shit.

I don’t care what anyone says, you listen to Run DMC Live at Montreux 2001 and this is still some of the best hip hop/rap ever recorded and it’s just slamming live. The only real low point of this joint is that “Rock Box” only appears as part of a mid-set medley, and DMC’s voice problems are also noticeable.

Still, this is one of the few albums I’ve actually went and purchased on an impulse in more years than I can remember (took me awhile to figure out just how to purchase music). Can’t recommend this enough.
