JLT “Live in Germany”

Photo: Sergey Belyakov, www.sbelyakov.ru.

Frontier Records is set to release as a live album Joe Lynn Turner’s performance at the United Forces Of Rock Festival in Ludwigsburg, Germany on September 30, 2007. The new live album will be aptly (if a little unimaginatively) titled Live In Germany and will hit the street on October 10. This will be the first JLT’s solo live album. Track list will include: Death Alley Driver; I Surrender; Power; Street of Dreams; Power of Love; Can’t Let You Go; Jealous Lover; Your Love is Life; Blood Red Sky; Stone Cold; Can’t Happen Here; Spotlight Kid; Burn.

In the meanwhile, the second Sunstorm album is in pre-production stage for the recording. JLT will contribute 4 tracks: Standing In The Fire, Forever Now, Save a Place in Your Heart, I Found Love and Walk On, while Jim Peterik (ex Survivor, Pride of Lions) has offered 3 more songs. Four more songs written on purpose by Tom and James Martin (Khymera, House of Lords) will round up the album. Musicians confirmed include Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) on bass and guitars, Uwe Reitenauer on guitars and Chris Schmidt on drums. Frontiers hopes to release the album in early 2009.

Thanks to Elio Borgi of Frontier Records and to Tatti Oscarsson for the info.

    Calling “Live in Germany” an “unimaginative” title is another example of Turner-bashing. Rainbow had the unimaginative title of “Live in Germany” with no complaints, not to mention the “unimaginative” Purple album “Live in London” etc., etc., ad nauseum.

    You’re absolutely right, T. Looking forward to it! Saw JLT with Graham Bonnet here
    in Finland this summer and they both were outstanding…
    ‘Whitesnake’ was the headliner, but DC was clearly blown
    by the two ex-Rainbow-singers! Yep.

    Got no problem with the title just the set list. If he wanted to do a track from his time in DP then why not “Fire In The Basement” or “King Of Dreams” but “BURN”???? Christ,ole’ Cov’ can’t sing it properly anymore and only The Voice Of Rock still has the pipes to handle it. Actually with all the solo stuff JOLT has done he should be putting those songs on his live releases or even a Yngwie track. Regards,Drdp

    Live album with pratically only old songs.
    this proves tha Turner have nothing to say as soloist…..

    Tracy Heyder says:


    Does that mean on the yet unreleased second Sunstorm album, he is covering another Purple tune “Walk On” from ‘Rapture of the Deep’?

    Unimaginative title? How about “Joe Momma?”

    Reinaldo Alves says:

    I saw Turner in Sao Paulo and he sang very well, Rainbow songs, solo career, Malmsteen songs and even 1 from Sunstorm. Great set list, well balanced.

    Now, BURN and songs from Rainbow only ???

    WHY ???

    ‘unimaginatively’ sums up JLT’s work……

    That guy will ‘cover’ any song it seems, as long as he thinks people are listening.

    I hate his make up.

    he is always with it…I hate the smell of cosmetics

    Gregg Koval says:

    I still can’t wrap my head around why he does Burn.

    what ‘s the best turner solo album?
    what’s your opinion?????

    Andrés says:

    I think they’re all great. The second one is a little bit weak. But I like good music. And JLT makes good music. I don’t care if he’s better or worse than anyone else. I dont’t care if he’s heavier or softer than whatever. I love DP but it’s not the only band I listen. Again: I like good music. It’s all about that. And nothing else matters.

    Rascal says:

    JLT wont do ‘fire in the basement’ cos nobody has really heard of it….

    He does the well known stuff….the Rainbow golden oldies, and non-JLT era DP….

    Hats Off to ‘The Master Of Tribute’ the ‘President Of Rip-Off’ and ‘The Queen Of Camp’

    Roberto says:

    ok but there would be a best solo album….

  15. 15
    Rascal says:

    Maybe their would…………

    But poaching songs, prancing about in a tribute act obviously gives him far more career potential………..

    As I keep saying……..’Pension Contributions’ will remain an important consideration

    Glad to see that Joe is getting a livealbum out. Ofcourse it takes about five seconds before the negativitism that often follows Turner around here pops up. If Joe wants to release a live version of “Burn”, why should that be a problem? I didn´t hear this sort of thinking when Blackmore recorded a Bob Dylan song a few years back…

    I think the tracklist looks just fine, it is a fine selection of songs.

    I saw him sing “Stormbringer” once, and it was very good indeed. The guy can sing.

    Very well put, Mike Eriksson!!!

    Poaching, prancing, pension schemes, set list, make up, tribute act etc. etc. etc….

    BLAAA BLAAA BLAAA, and then some. Well, to each their own!!

    Kind regards, The Queen of Camp

    A good friend of mine is a jobbing musician, guitarist,
    and he “has” to play covers almost every week to make a living…he loves what he does(playing/singing), and I dont’t ridicule/critizice him for doing that, on the contrary! So, let the No-Hopers bitch about, they never got past the starting-line for a start(JLT did, A Big Time!), that’s for sure!!!

    Yours Truly, The Master of Tribute 🙂

    Arrrhhh Sami’s…….all upset

    And we dont hear about your ‘Good Friends’ latest album or gig in the pages of ‘The Highway Star’ do we??

    OK ok…..JLT had a brief and unsuccessful dalliance with DP so he obviously feels now that his career IS that of a ‘jobbing muscian’………you answered it yourself!!

    JLT just wants to be taken seriously…..

    Too late

    Aint bitching just great????

    Sami says:

    Not upset the least, just entertained 🙂

    Have a good weekend Rascal & everybody else!

    stefan says:

    An apt title for the upcoming live album,at least in my mind is….”Live in the closet”, for apparent reasons!!And to reply instantly,no there´s no innuendos!!!

  22. 22
    Rascal says:

    Or ‘Camping it up in Europe’

    stefan says:

    Since he´s off to Iraq this september, may I suggest a cover of “Iraqandroll” by Clint Black????

    Rascal says:

    Should put a smile on the ‘troops’ faces!

    Dont over do the ‘lipstick’ JLT

    Here´s another one….”I hate rap” by Confederate Railroad!!!!

    Bruno says:

    Joe Lynn Turner is the best voice of the world!!!!!!!

    Lyna Turner says:

    I completely agree with Bruno! As professional musician I can’t find the best rock vokalist but JLT! And his fans like to hear his old songs, cause it’s great songs.
