The 70th Birthday Concert ~ John Mayall
I have had this DVD a few years now, but thought i would give another listen the other night, and I am glad I did. Was great seeing some of the best guitarists alive today on stage together. Mick Taylor and Buddy Whittington were good. Buddy the better of the 2, and a couple of amazing solos he played too. Mayall looked great for 70 and his voice a little rusty at first soon picked up and sounded fantastic. His Harmonica playing is unreal and at some parts in the show he played harmonica and keyboard solo at the same time. Amazing! One of the greatest blues musicians alive today - and still at his prime. I suppose Blues men do get better with age.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best, 14 Nov 2009
I cant understand why the average rating is so low for this. In US its an average 4.5 out of 5. This is classic clapton of the 70s. The Core is worth the price alone. There are so many classics on there. Im a bit sick of wonderful tonight now lol but its still a masterpiece.
Cocaine is one of the all time best Clapton songs and there are som many other great tunes. Peaches and Diesel is a brilliant instrumental too. The guitar playing on the whole album from 1977 is the best since the Layla album of 1970.

If you havent got this album already, buy it. You wont be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent mix, 4 Dec 2008
I heard when Tongy first moved to Eden he came on and played electro house and electro (i was there but left before he came on as met a lovely girl and had to get up early to vacate our villa). Groove Armada were also on I saw them and they played some awful electro house, so stuck to Jo MIlls and B upstairs. However, as weeks went on, i was told Tong got away from the cheese and actually played decent sets.
This cd is really decent, mixing through minimal electro and techno thru to deep house and jackin house, and blends better then ive heard anyone ever do. I havent even listened to cd2 yet as just recieved the album today, but am sure its just as good. ;-)
