Let me just say for the record, right now, I am not a fan of Body Count. The fine boys and girls over at Escapi Music were kind enough to send me this release, and I am going to do my job and describe to you the material found on this particular DVD. I'll let the Body Count fans themselves make up their mind on whether or not they need to purchase this. I will say that if you are a fan, this video package is absolutely loaded with tons of cuts and a few goodies to strengthen the sale.
This is actually the third DVD release from the Body Count 2004 reunion tour, the first being their performance at the Smokeout Festival, and the second released as "Murder 4 Hire". This third DVD apparently has better camera angles and some rather excellent audio quality when compared to the previous releases. This was recorded live at the Troubabour, a frequent establishment of any hard rocker in the LA scene. The show was actually held as a memorial concert for former Body Count members D-Roc, Beatmaster D, and Mooseman, who have all passed away in years past. The tracklisting includes all of the classic Body Count numbers including the controversial "Cop Killer". The band also includes new track "Murder 4 Hire", written by D-Roc before his death.
The bonus features here are plenty. First up is an in-depth interview with singer Ice-T about his career thus far with Body Count. Also included is a back-stage greeting from original BC member Ernie C. That is coupled with a photo gallery and some highlights from the show. If that isn't enough for the BC fans, the group also includes a two track bonus CD of songs planned for the forthcoming album, "Murder For Hire". Those songs are "Dirty Bombs" and "Passion".
Note - Look for the new Body Count album in August, 2006.
