In March of 2007, Warrant released a video companion to their 2006 CD, Born Again.
In case you didn’t know, Born Again is the first CD, featuring former Black ‘N Blue vocalist, Jamie St. James as the new singer of Warrant. The CD, Born Again is a very solid effort by Warrant, and returns them to the sound that made the band famous.
The video is unique in the fact that is has videos for every song off the CD, Born Again. I don’t recall another band doing this before.
The sound on the DVD is perfect, but the videos are a little repetitive and have somewhat amateurish video editing effects.
I did get quite a bit out of watching the behind the scene features on this disc. The band recorded a bunch of footage of the time when they were in the studio recording the tracks for this CD. I thought this part of the DVD was kind of interesting, but not everyone may share my opinion.
There are quite a few funny moments on the DVD. The guys seem to be having a lot of fun.
You can find this DVD for as little as $13.00 in some retailers. The reasonable cost may make this a DVD worth picking up.
Diehard Warrant fans will want to own this. Other fans may not find this disc as appealing. For the fans attending the Rocklahoma music festival that may not have experienced, Jamie St. James as Warrant’s new front man, this is the only way to do it.

Heaven And Hell Sets Date For Live CD/DVD
As tipped here this spring, Heaven And Hell’s March 30 concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall is headed to DVD Aug. 28 via Rhino. The aptly named “Heaven And Hell Live From Radio City” marks former Black Sabbath cohorts Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice’s first U.S. show in 15 years.
The project will be available as a two-CD set, a single-disc DVD and a deluxe three-disc edition with both the CDs and the DVD. The latter incarnation, which includes a tour program, a backstage laminate and photos, will only be available via Rhino’s Web site.
At Radio City, the group played fan favorites such as “Neon Knights, “The Mob Rules,” a 15-minute “Heaven and Hell” and two new songs, “The Devil Cried” and “Shadow of the Wind.”
“By calling it Heaven And Hell, you know exactly what you’re getting and it doesn’t interfere with anything,” Iommi told Billboard.com in March. “There’s no, ‘Is it really Black Sabbath?’ and all that rubbish. Of course, we have been out as Black Sabbath with this lineup, so we could do it. But I think it’s best to go as Heaven And Hell
The band is playing summer festivals internationally in the coming weeks, and will return to North America for more shows in early September.
Here is the track list for “Heaven And Hell Live From Radio City”:
“E5150/After All (The Dead)”
