Having bought the 2004 Festival US DVDs
this 2007 DVD set was a must-have. I get the impression that the image quality and production on this one is not quite to the same high standard, however I was not disappointed because the performances from almost everybody are still excellent. There is a good variety in genres, all aiming at the core values epitomised by combining Blues, Jazz, Rock and Country.
This has been my favourite type of music since the 1960s, so I guess I was pre-disposed to an automatic purchase, but even SWMBO enjoys this DVD, and she often is less than enthusiastic about what I listen to! The cast list is long, and includes several of my favourites as well as Clapton himself, such as BB King, Jeff Beck, Albert lee, John Mayer, Steve Winwood, Hubert Sumlin, Susan Tedeschi...
In some ways perhaps not quite as good as the first one, but still superb and all for a good cause.
Also well worth a look is the 2010 Festival
, carrying on the tradition of supporting a very worthwhile charity.
