Blackbird" is the regular song of Alter Bridge's live performances. Myles Kennedy described the significance of the song for the band: For me, that's always a highlight of the set. As much as I love playing it, it can be hard emotionally sometimes because of the subject matter. It's not always an easy song to play, but there's something we get from seeing the crowd and their reaction to the song. It means something to them. This is a notable feature of Alter Bridge's live performances. Live From Amsterdam" was recorded at the Heineken Music Hall, in Amsterdam on December 8th, 2008. Harp cover by Lena Woods. Acoustic cover by Leo Moracchioli. Piano Cover by Genie Gulotta.

Well, If you love Alter Bridge like I do, this is a must have. I purchased this on red vinyl and it is limited to only 1000 copies. Blackbird is the band's best work in my opinion. This album was released in 2007 but this red vinyl was released in 2017 for the 10 year anniversary. I'm catching things in the tracks that set them apart and am realizing that all 13 songs are, on their own, solid (well, except for "Watch Over You," which I don't care much for).

The willow it weeps today A breeze from the distance is calling your name Unfurl your black wings and wait Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away It's coming to sweep you away. Let the wind carry you home Blackbird fly away May you never be broken again. The fragile cannot endure The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure The static of this cruel world Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day Long before they've seen their day. Let the wind carry you home Blackbird fly away May you.
