Guide Review - Garth Brooks - Double Live

Garth Brooks' ability to entertain a crowd is undeniable and if you missed out seeing him in concert then you can hear all the action contained in his 'Double Live' collection. Close your eyes and you can feel the energy and even the fans' devotion to Garth. It's amazing how much of a connection there is.

Disc 1 contains a total of thirteen tracks, including the long version of "The Thunder Rolls." Singer Steve Wariner is a guest vocalist on their collaboration, "Longneck Bottle." First track "Callin' Baton Rouge" gets listeners in the mood for some good ole Garth music, while songs like "Unanswered Prayers" get the crowd singing along and "The River" guides the audience toward a different path. It's almost like you can close your eyes and see the lighters flickering in the dark. "Tearin' It Up (And Burnin' It Down)" closes disc one on an energetic note.

Disc 2 has twelve songs on it and that also means the long version of "Friends In Low Places." For this disc's energetic openiong the song is "Ain't Going Down ('Til The Sun Comes Up)." You can really hear the crowd cheering before "Rodeo" is played and "The Beaches Of Cheyenne." "Wild As The Wind" features Trisha Yearwood singing with Garth. "American Honky-Tonk Bar Association" is a favorite of mine, as is "If Tomorrow Never Comes," so I was pleased to find it in the collection. "The Dance" is the disc's final song and I love how the crowd sings along with Garth.
