Making a live Garth Brooks album is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. His concerts--part revival meeting, part love-in, part circus--are spectacles best experienced on a first hand basis. But this comes as close as a mere CD can to presenting the full Garth experience. Wisely, Brooks has chosen to make the audience the star on many tracks. Hearing thousands of fans singing along to "Unanswered Prayers" and "The Dance" is a goosebump-inducing experience. Songs like "Shameless," "The Beaches of Cheyenne" and "That Summer," all fine in their studio versions, take on a new vibrancy live.
But it's the upbeat songs that really shine. As Brooks and his crack band tear through rave-ups like "Ain't Goin' Down" and "The Fever," his voice takes on an edge of maniacal glee that drives the audience--and him--into a frenzy. And if the prospect of a live Garth souvenir isn't enough, Brooks has thrown in three new songs, including a duet with Trisha Yearwood ("Wild As the Wind"). The CD is also available in at least seven collectable versions, each with a different cover. Garth devotees can't go wrong with DOUBLE LIVE, and casual fans will welcome having all his hits in one handy package.
