"With this 4-track EP, The Dead Daisies makes its fans wait for the release of the new album postponed because of Covid-19."

Even though we know that the band created by David Lowy is actually a collective whose members come and go as they please, the announcement of the departure of John Corabi (vocals) and Marco Mendoza (bass) could have meant the end of The Dead Daisies. Fortunately, they will not have had the time to settle down permanently because there is an all-risk insurance in the Rock world with a capital R, and it is called Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion ...).

It is thus with The Voice Of Rock behind the microphone and on the bass that The Dead Daisies continues an adventure that has not finished having to face the elements. Indeed, after the change of line-up, it is this damned Covid-19 and its confinement that come to thwart the continuation of the adventures of the Australian-American-British collective, pushing back the release of the new opus ("Holy Ground") to January 2021, as well as the tour that was to accompany it. However, wishing to keep in touch with its fans, the quartet offers them a mini LP logically entitled "The Lockdown Sessions" on which he offers four tracks that the musicians recorded each at home during the forced confinement that almost the entire planet had to undergo. We find here the acoustic versions of the first two pre-singles that were used as a prelude to the postponed release of "Holy Ground", as well as two covers.

On 'Unspoken' and 'Righteous Days', Glenn Hughes marks his territory with an above-average interpretation. It's not for nothing that Joe Bonamassa said of him that he could "sing the recipe for lentil soup and give it a soul! ". The first track still has a haunting chorus and positive energy, while the second retains its heavy approach and orientalizing sounds. On the cover side, Humble Pie's "30 Days In The Hole" is delicate, bluesy and full of feeling. On the other hand, the unavoidable "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival is offered in a live and acoustic version with Deen Castronovo on vocals. The result is energetic but the drummer tends to overdo it. At the same time, this is understandable as he is almost useless on half of the tracks.

So here is a nice appetizer but the interest remains relative. It's always nice to discover songs sung by Glenn Hughes and it was important to mark his arrival in the band. On the other hand, it will be advisable to take this opus rather as a promotional object than as a real work as such. That's already enough to wait for the new album.
