Buy it and fell like you have been there yourself.
If in any doubt, buy it, it will not be a decision you'll regret. Feeling a little down? lie back in a comfortable sofa, pour yourself a large glass of wine and enjoy at full volume. Since I bought this a week ago it has hardly left my Stereo, and only then to go into my car!
I give it 7 stars...!
Overall this is a smashing concert, with a very good set of songs and great players. Happy birthday John !!
Mayall has a terrific rhythm section - they tend to get a bit overlooked as he continually wheels out his star guitarists, but the band would not be the force it is without them!
This is a joyous night of music, although I perhaps detect a little rivalry between EC and Buddy Whittington! Great to see and hear Mick Taylor again. It appears that he had a bandaged finger, but that didn't stop him playing some very nice stuff, even though he appeared to me to be just a little rusty!
EC is a bit low in the mix, and doesn't have the usual bite to his tone. If it was like that through his foldback, he would have every right to be a little peeved!
Personally, I think Buddy Whittington stole the show - upfront, and with a very pokey sound, but also a lovely delicate touch when required.
I was pleased to see Chris Barber involved; a great ambassador for the blues, who doesn't always get the credit he deserves.
All in all, in spite of the very minor niggles,a thoroughly recommended purchase - but if you can't afford both, I'd go for the dvd (even if it has one track less!).
Clapton came on and the first track 'Please Mr Lofton' was more a rythmic track and seemed to feature just clapton and mayall. Then Hideaway was good - but not like the classic 'Beano' album version which gave Clapton his god like status. All your love was pretty good, but then came Have you heard - this another one of the tracks that made clapton God when he played it on the original Bluesbreakers album. On this performance, gone was the raw guitar sound and gibson guitars and the song was a jam with each musician taking a solo. This proved to be Whittington's best solo of the evening and i was thinking Clapton will find it very hard to top this. Then came the trumpet solo, and then Clapton's. It left me with goosebumps. Just when Whittington was trying to take Clapton's God status on that evening, Clapton absolutely tore the roof off with a solo which proves why he is always in the top 3 of all time best guitarists. Buy the DVD for that song alone. You will not be dissapointed. After Have You Heard - Mayall said, 'You dont get Blues better than that' - damn right. It was incredible and so the dvd gets 5 stars just for that song.
