Follow-up to the superlative first volume of live material.

Motorhead are back with the inevitable follow-up to the superlative first volume of live material. They’ve probably released more collections, reissues and live material in the past few years than any other band but I guess there’s an obvious thirst for this stuff. It’s good to see Motorhead doing so well at the minute even if their success is being milked.

The first part of this package is a two-disc set featuring material from four concerts. Disc one is an almost complete set from 2011 Wacken Open Air Festival. The tracklisting omits two songs (‘Ace Of Spades’ and ‘Overkill’) which can annoyingly be found on disc two. It’s the usual Motorhead setlist. They have been rather sluggish lately when it comes to altering the line-up of songs. On a personal note I’m pleased they got rid of ‘Sacrifice’ because I never could stand Mickey Dee’s extended drum solo. There’s a terrific version of ‘Over The Top’ and ‘The Chase Is Better Than The Catch’ makes a welcome return. Overall, it’s standard Motorhead fare. Disc two includes six songs from 2001s Sonisphere and five songs from the same year’s Rock In Rio. The question is do you really need three versions of the same songs in the same collection? The answer of course is: No! The DVD is also the same material from the same performances. They’re not an especially visual band so I prefer the audio versions.

Motorhead have a fantastic cannon of songs; they just don’t exploit it enough. Personally, I think Lemmy and Co should resurrect songs from their nineties albums. There’s some terrific stuff buried in those studio opuses’ like ‘Burner’, ‘Civil War’, ‘I Am The Sword’ and ‘Overnight Sensation’. But they seem content with playing a similar setlist every year with just one song that hasn’t been played for ages as a treat for longstanding fans and a couple of tracks from the new album, plus the usual songs like ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘Bomber’ et al.

‘The World Is Ours Vol 2’ has some excellent performances but most fans will already own these songs in other CD/DVD collections.
