Jack Russell's GREAT WHITE - Great Zeppelin II; A Tribute to Led Zeppelin (2021) full

Jack Russell’s GREAT WHITE, the version of the band fronted by powerhouse vocalist Jack Russell will release tomorrow “Great Zeppelin II; A Tribute to Led Zeppelin“, a new killer salute to the mighty Zepp.

This long-awaited sequel to the 1998 album that became one of the group’s best-selling, most loved albums, rocks even harder than its predecessor and includes all-new covers of “Whole Lotta Love,” “Kashmir,” “Houses Of The Holy,” “Misty Mountain Hop” and more.

Russell’s voice has only improved with the years and he is ably backed by stellar guitarists Robby Lachner & Michael Olivieri along with bassist Dan McNay & drummer Dicki Fliszar.

Back in 1998, Great White recorded a live album of nothing but Led Zeppelin classics. That album, entitled ‘Great Zeppelin: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin’, featured 14 Zepp covers and was recorded live in December of 1996 at a show in California.

More than 20 years later, Jack Russell’s Great White is set to release ”Great Zeppelin II: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin”, which features another 14 tracks (on CD, the vinyl omits five songs to fit on a single LP album) of the legendary rock band’s best material.

Four songs appear on both releases, although the new tribute album from Jack Russell’s Great White was recorded in the studio, instead of live, after the band had trouble with its mobile recording setup.

“It’s live in the studio, but it was going to be a live album — like a live concert,” Russell said. “But unfortunately we had a lot of technical issues with our recording equipment, and we couldn’t get the recording to work right.

So, you know, we had three shows that we did and none of them came out quality enough to use for the album, so we decided to do it live in the studio, under controlled conditions. We knew that when you push record, it’s going to record.”

Joining Russell in Jack Russell’s Great White are guitarist Robby Lachner, bassist Dan McNay, and drummer Dicki Fliszar. Michael Olivieri isn’t a full-time band member but helped out on the album of Zep covers.

Lachner does a fine job handling the Jimmy Page guitar solos while Russell plays the role of Robert Plant in his very own way, very Great White-ish.

While it would be a stretch to call ”Great Zeppelin II” an essential album, fans of Great White and/or Led Zeppelin may find it an enjoyable addition to their collections. The songs are played well, sung well, and done with a lot of respect for the original source material.

Our favorites from this collection are “The Rover,” “Trampled Underfoot,” “Kashmir,” and “Misty Mountain Hop,” but they’re all fun songs and good cover versions.

Highly Recommended

I'm just not a huge tribute album fan... a cover here and there, love it. A whole album though... from the same artist, when I can just listen to the originals, I dunno man. Not my thing.

I'm with ya! If I want to hear Zep, I want to hear them.

    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of "Before The Sun Sets", the upcoming debut album from City Of Lights on February 11, 2022.

Heart's On Fire 3. Emily 4. Heat Of The Night 5. Dying Light 6. Give Me Back My Heart 7. Put Your Heart On The Line 8. Snake Eyes 9. Joanna 10. Midnight Club 11. How To Love 12.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear.
