It is fair to say that in those bleak days of the early 80s when the charts were full of dross, Snowy White was one of the few musicians who rescued blues rock fans by bringing virtuoso work guitar back into popular music. His 1983 chart hit Bird of Paradise became a jukebox staple around the country, often to exclamations of "Wow! WHO is that guitarist??" as his guitar solo ripped through the air. This set includes the majestic BoP and also very strong material from his first 2 solo albums. Highlights must include the (biographical?)At the Crossroads, the stinging guitar work of Lucky Star and the fluid guitar of Fortune. Since then Snowy has carved out a distinguished career as both session man and solo artist and this DVD is a fine example of his early solo career. The actual music is hard to pigeonhole and is a unique mix of blues rock, jazz rock and straight ahead rock, all supported by a very tight and highly competent backing band. His guitar tone is to die for. Think Santana's Caravanserai and you are on the right track, although Snowy White is no copyist - he has his own `sound' characterised by low key vocals and fluid bluesy, sometimes jazzy, guitar which never strays into excess. Even today, some 30 years after his first solo album, this DVD stands up as very fine music indeed.

Snowy has never achieved the level of stardom he deserves, although maybe he's happy to keep the lower profile? but this detracts nothing from such a cool, fluid performance by a great guita player. I normally don't like the blues, but Snowy injects a bit of jazz-rock into it that makes this a nice little gem to have in your DVD collection.
