After last year's amazing DVD performances of Healing and Todd I didn't ink he could a live performance to top them. Well, he has. This CD/DVD set is incredible value. Both discs are superb and we get to see and hear lots of fantastic guitar playing by Todd along with a vocal performance that shows that he is at the top,of his game. The DVD is simple stereo rather than 5.1 but that is not a bad thing as some Todd releases in the past tried to stretch the sound and pump up the bass too much just to give the speakers something to do. This is very good clear sound that gives you a real reproduction of him and the other performers. If you want to twiddle with your amp to add surround effects then you can - but the disc delivers what is really important - the genius of Todd's heartfelt vocals and blistering guitar. This is bargain of the year and Todd's blues performances of his own tracks will give you a new take on some familiar tracks. I really enjoyed Soul Brother and think this performance does the song more justice than the version on the Liars DVD. This is one you will play again and again - get it on your Christmas list!

Exciting cd with fuller and more energetic tracks than the original Studio Album (Todd Rundgren's Johnson). There are a couple of nice inclusions from Todd's previous incarnations. (Must make an effort to get some of the Nazz cds). The dvd is excellent, great HD colour and great camera angles. This disk has a few extra traks not on the cd. Excellent package. My only gripe, a real small one, is that Jesse Gress didn't get a double page photo in the booklet like the ones Todd, Kas and Praire got. That said he does appear in some of the others shots. A good introduction to Todd and the songs of R Johnson.
