5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore Criticisms, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At Rockpalast [DVD] [2011] [NTSC] (DVD)
I was a bit apprehensive about ordering this DVD in view of some negative criticisms about the backing group.
In fact it's a really good concert and the backing group are fine.
One needs to perhaps mention that Roy Buchanan's guitar style was somewhat akin to a jazz musicians solo improvisation and it would be virtually impossible for any backing group to follow it note for note.
So the group are therefore just providing the basic back beat (and doing it well) while Roy is doing "his thing" in the foreground - this is particularly noticeable in the "Green Onions" track. The keyboard player also has some really nice touches in the final track "Wayfaring Pilgrim".
There are no "Slick Edits" in this concert DVD and sometime is spend by Roy and the band tuning up, but this adds to the feeling of "being there".
So, all in all - Roy Buchanan is brilliant of course, the backing group are excellent, and the DVD itself is worth every penny of Amazons asking price.
If you're a fan of the late Roy Buchanan, then this DVD (along with his "Live from Austin" DVD) are a "must have", as there is so little of his concert material available.
Buy and enjoy.
