Review

Out of the ashes of Zeno and V2,the German melodic hardrockers Fair Warning was born and their debut album saw the light of day in 1991.
After that,they have released 3 more studio albums called "Rainmaker", "Go" and "Four" before disbanding in the year 2000.
But now they are back and will release a brand new album on August 25th,Frontiers Records will release one of their live shows from Club Citta in Kawasaki from 1993 on DVD.
This show has only been available on VHS on the Japanese market. So now Frontiers has taken care of that and will release the whole show on DVD with 5 extra tracks.
This show has taken place in a small club that seems to be packed with people,they deliver songs from the debut album mixed with songs from the first Zeno album such as "Sunset" (intro), "Eastern Sun" and "A Little More Love".

From the extra tracks you get to hear a great version of "The Heat Of Emotion", acoustic versions of "Call Of The Heart", "In The Ghetto" (Elvis cover), "Sukiyaki" and "Mickey?s Monkey".
This is a DVD for the die-hard fans of Fair Warning,I?m a huge fan of this band and I think this is a nice DVD, not sensational but good. They play the songs good and Tommy Heart sings very good and he is one of the best singers coming out of Germany today. So if this was not enough then you get more candy from Frontiers because they will re-issue the debut and the "Rainmaker" album at the same time so if you don?t own a copy of those albums then get them both.
I hold the debut album as their best and Rainmaker comes 2nd. I think they should have remastered and put in some bonustracks on those two to make them more interesting for those that already have both albums, but you can?t get everything. So while you wait for the reunion album then check out this DVD!
