4.0 out of 5 stars 3 albums for the price of 1 (on 2 cds), 6 Jun 2008
This review is from: The Holland Sessions (Audio CD)
The title of this review should suggest 5 stars, but these are big Ben's last years, when the tone was still magnificent but the lungs could no longer delliver proper breath controll and the length... And the international trios playing with him are quite adequate but not more than that.

Even the 1st CD, containing recordings from 1969, have the sense of late Ben, not to speak of the 2nd CD, with songs from 1973, the year of his death.

He was still very good even in 1973 but, alas, no longer great. However, if you like Webster (like I do) you will not make a mistake if you buy it; in the end of the 2nd CD (and 3rd original album) old Ben, instead of an encore, tells the audience "You're young and growing, I'm old and going; have fun while you can!"... And of he went.
