Format:VHS Tape
I first got hooked onto the Destroyers in 1977 after hearing George sing the Madison Blues on radio 1. When I saw him on live aid in 1985 he just blew me away and since then I must be one of his most devoted fans in the UK.
What I have struggled to get during the last 15 years is something on film or video that I could keep for good.
At last I've got it! George and the guys, like me, have been around for some time but they still rock!
The set is not overdone but the attitude, humour and energy is full on. They have included a few punchy favorites that come from some of the bands heroes and some that have been penned by the band themselves. For good measure, there is an easy slow number right in the middle to give the crowd a chance to get their breath back.
There is nothing electronic or technical about the music. It is raw, alive and in your face. If you don't want to play guitar after watching this then you'd better stick to gardening or flower arranging. I only gave it 3 stars because I thought that I might be biased but in my own collection I've given it 6!
I love it and if you love Rock n Roll, R&B or whatever you want to call it, you'll love it too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert Muddy Sound 25 Mar 2011
By BlueBoy
Format:DVD
I have recently got into the great music of Mr Thorogood with the 30th Anniversary CD which is fantastic.

I decided to then buy a DVD concert. No doubt this is a good gig with a good set of songs but the sound quality is really quiet. I had my TV system up to almost maximum and the sound was still quiet enough to talk to my wife !!
Had that been my Led Zep DVD the walls of the house would have been cracking.!!!
So a good concert, maybe my DVD defective still pondering on whether to send it back for another one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality 3 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Video and songs included were great. The quality of the audio is horrible. The point of buying a DVD is to get video with CD quality. The music was muted and flat.
I returned the DVD. I am a big Thoroughgood fan but this is a waste.!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in 99 8 Jun 2002
By DAVID GOODFELLOW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The cd by the same name is fine, the vhs video is fine, but the dvd is flawed. CMC international should recall this dvd and re-publish it with the audio corrected. Either that or they need to supply a line amplifier with every disc. The audio is recorded about 10 to 15db below where it should be. It is the only dvd that I have come across that needs so much volume gain to bring the sound up to normal listening levels. Most all of the other reviews fault the audio. I believe that a mistake was made encoding the sound on this disc, and the publisher should correct it. Until then, I reccomend that buyers who are interested in this otherwise great concert stick with the vhs or the cd.

2.0 out of 5 stars For your parents (of which I am one) 25 Jan 2000
By Joe Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This concert recording is not as good as I expected it to be. The sound was close to awful at times as the guitar mix is muddled up with the other instruments. The sax player was very good, but again the sound is not mixed well. I got fooled (again) by the Dolby 5.1 specification on the package. Just because it says Dolby 5.1 doesn't mean that the sound was mixed right.
The performance is good but the crowd is old (like me) and pretty quiet. Maybe George is getting too old for this stuff. I was looking for some vintage Destroyer footage and got George lite.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concert but bad sound! 27 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I live in an apartment and listen to everything through Senheiser headphones and a Pioneer 300 watt two channel stereo. And have a Toshiba 36" TV.
That having been said, I thought the concert was fantastic. the video was perfectly clear, and the tecnical direction was great. BUT the sound gets softer on the left side from time to time (You can hear it in the crowd noise. And the vocals through Georges main mike go from super to very echoie if you know what I mean.
Also the DVD is recorded VERY VERY low. So you will need POWER to get any volume at all.
Like has been previously stated. If you listen through the TV speakers you'll be fine. Anything higher tech than that and you'll hear the differences that I've stated.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Workout Disc! 17 Sep 2007
By Craig Connell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Hard rocker George Thorogood plays a set of songs that made him semi-famous. Thorogood isn't old, but he's no spring chicken anymore, either. However, that doesn't seem to slow him (or many contemporaries) down. He works up a good sweat and puts on a fine performance on this DVD. He is backed by Bill Blough on bass; Hank Carter on sax, keyboard and vocals; Jeff Simon on drums and percussion and Jim Suhler on guitar.

This would make a great aerobic workout DVD! George and his band will keep you moving! You can shake your whatever for almost an hour-and-a-half, too! It plan old good, hard-driving rock 'n roll.
