5.0 out of 5 stars A fourth volume of great old blues footage, 4 May 2014
This review is from: The American Folk Blues Festival: The British Tours 1963-1966 [DVD] [Region 1] [NTSC] (DVD)
The American Folk Blues Festival was a series of tours of American
blues musicians in Europe starting in 1962. The recordings on this
volume were from 1963-1966. The tours were organized by Horst Lippmann
and Fritz Rau with the help of Willie Dixon, who played very important
roles in getting the American musicians on board and also, as one can
see in various videos, as a musical director, in addition to his bass
playing. Some of the recordings are staged for TV, some are from
concert settings. This volume has footage from the British parts of
the tours. The British tours are particularly important from a
historical perspective because of the way they shaped the British
Blues Explosion and British Rock. Back in the days when access to
blues in UK was difficult, all these great players suddenly came over,
and lots of British musicians who were later to become well known were
in the audience. Personal favorites of mine from this volume are the
pieces by Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters (including the bonus
tracks) and Lonnie Johnson.
