Format: DVD
Be warned – these are old film clips, some in colour some in black & white, according to the back label from the archives of the legendary Beat Club in Hamburg. The sound isn’t to god either, though supposedly in 5.1 Surround. So why the 3 stars? Well first, it does feature an impressive line-up of the guitar greats from the late 60s / early 70s; Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Jeff beck, Alvin Lee, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix and Leslie West, and secondly, while the performances are not really concert performances, but rather early days ‘psychedelic rock videos’ some of the performances are still really fascinating. You get to see the original Santana line-up with Michael Shrieve on drums performing Jingo. There’s a very self confident Alvin Lee doing Good morning little school girl, with dancing go-go schoolgirl and all, a young B.B. King, a rare concert footage of Johnny Winter as the rock icon of Johnny Winter And Live-fame (check out this LP/CD if you don’t already have it!) before he went back to his blues roots, one of the earliest film clips of Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell performing Hey Joe, a real gem, Eric Clapton performing with Delaney & Bonnie who’s band were later to form the basis for his own Derek & The Dominoes, a young edition of the Who performing Happy Jack (filmed in black & white as are all the 60s performances presented here) and last but not least a driving version of Don’t Look Back performed by Leslie West’s power-trio Mountain here augmented by keyboardist Steve Knight.Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Take it for what it is 4 July 2002
By Gerald B. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It is important for anyone who would purchase this DVD to understand what they're getting and what they are not. It is NOT state of the art, it is NOT the finest performances of the artists involved, and it is certainly not the 'guitar fest' you might think. You could find many other DVD's showcasing much more impressive guitar performances. Having said all that.. I LOVE this DVD. It's like a musical chocolate box, you don't know what you're going to get with each morsel.
Strangely the best performances are by some of the most unlikely bands; the biggest stars mostly come up lacking. Hendrix, Beck, Clapton and Santana are all a bit disappointing. Hendrix looks half asleep as he plods through Hey Joe, and Santana is almost invisible. Clapton's performance is culled from a song with Delaney and Bonnie where his contribution is not the focal point of the music, its a nice song, but it's not the showcase of Eric Clapton that the guitar fan might be craving. And Jeff Beck is Jeff Beck... undeniably brilliant but somehow missing the mark with a performance almost totally devoid of emotion. But I'd rather see second rate Hendrix,Santana,Clapton and Beck than almost anything being put out by todays 'stars'.
It's the lesser lights who steal this show. Joe Walsh and the James Gang are great, as is Johnny Winter and Leslie West with Mountain. Ten Years After are incredible, although the video quality is pretty poor. The Grateful Dead (never a favourite of mine) are damn good and Duane Eddy rocks the house down. Who would have guessed? There is a vintage clip of the Who bashing their way through Happy Jack, complete with teens dancing in the foreground in what looks like some teeny bopper TV show from the 60's. Musically it's not of any real substance, but as a nostalgia piece it's a treat just to see them at that stage in their career (I don't think Keith had started shaving yet)
Please note as well, all performances are live, there is no lip synch crap on this DVD. This is real music, warts and all. The audio/video quality is sub-standard by today's standards, but this is the REAL DEAL. Previously unseen live footage of monster talents. Its like finding buried treasure for the real rock fan.
I love it.
One minor gripe: The Mountain song also appears on the "Hard Rocking" collection in the Rock Icons Series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of Rock Icons 26 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have a collection of several music and concert DVD's. Rock Icons has the poorest audio and vidio quality I have ever seen on any DVD or VHS tape. It isn't worth watching even if someone gave it to you for free. Great idea, but take a pass on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Piece of Crap 1 Nov. 2004
By Joffrey Lambert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Im a rock fan and let me say that this dvd doesnt worth a cent !
First, the audio/video is DISGUSTING !
Then, the songs sucks ! Its disapointing to see such great artists with so bad performance !
There are a lot more Dvd that worth their price before this one so dont buy it unless you have all the Shows that were made in the universe !
