I was a fan of Traffic and Jim Capaldi wrote some great songs. When I saw the concert line-up I decided to go. I had never seen Joe Walsh, Paul Weller, Jon Lord, Yousuf Islam (Cat Stevens, to us oldies), Pete Townshend or Gary Moore in concert, and this was a bargain basement ticket to see them. The DVD does the evening justice. Personally-speaking, if I never see Pete Townshend or Paul Weller again, I couldn't care less, as their performances were professional, but just not to my taste. I would go out of my way to see Joe Walsh again, though he still has a voice that I am not sure about. I have been to see Jon Lord and Gary Moore since, they made that good an impression. It's a question of personal taste, but watch the DVD and you will understand.
A couple of years later the stand-out tracks I go back and watch are Gary Moore, Winwood, Joe Walsh, Jim Capaldi's brother, who embodies "the gift of unknown things", and all the bits where Jon Lord plays.
So much for performances, but one of the questions that one must ask is "does it capture the atmosphere?" Absolutely, is the answer. If you wanted a techno tour de force, this was not going to be your kind of concert. It was an exercise in simplicity itself. A revelatory mix of really good, even great, musicians, and a few coloured lights, and mostly pop/soul/bossa nova, and one of the most stunning bits of blues you are ever likely to see or hear. I am not a Luddite; I love technically brilliant concerts too, but that would have been inappropriate here.
I am glad I was there, but if you were not, or you want to see what concerts were like way back before technology took a big role in the presentation, this really is as good as it gets.
