Bonzo’s Mon­treux

Coda, 1982

Classic Rock - - Led Zeppelin -

Do you like rock drum so­los? Not in con­cert, where your senses are most likely ‘en­hanced’ al­ready, and if they’re not you can al­ways slope off to the toi­let or bar. But at home, sit­ting there want­ing to lis­ten to some good mu­sic? If so, you’ll love Bonzo’s Mon­treux. If not, no amount of ‘drum or­ches­tra­tion’ and elec­tronic ef­fects added at a later – post­hu­mous – date by Jimmy Page is go­ing to make this some­thing you need to hear more than once. Not be­cause it’s not good; it’s ac­tu­ally quite mag­nif­i­cent. If you like that sort of pass-the-joint thing. But if it’s the gen-u-wine Bonzo on a mind-ben­der drum an­tics you’re af­ter, go to the 2005 DVD col­lec­tion. Com­pared to that, this is kids’ stuff. MW
