The Lil Ol' Band From Essex,
This review is from: Hamsters: Verminator [DVD] (DVD)
In 1997, having recently performed as special guests to ZZ Top on their Rhythmeen tour, The "Lil Ol' Band From Essex" paid tribute to the "Lil Ol' Band From Texas."
"Verminator!" sees The Hamsters return to The Square in Harlow and rip through a terrific cross-section of ZZ Top's history.
As with their Hendrix concerts, Slim (Guitar), Zsa Zsa (Bass Guitar) and Otis (Drums) don't follow the usual tribute band route and copy the originals, they interpret and develop each song in a way that ZZ Top themselves should take notice of!!!
All the hits from ZZ Top's MTV peak like "Gimme All Your Loving" are here as well as some real overlooked gems like "Jesus Just Left Chicago."
A real bonus of this DVD is the way that a sound error that spoiled the original VHS release has been corrected for the DVD. "Sharp Dressed Man" had a sound drop-out that lasted for about 30 seconds, however the DVD has been repaired by using sound from another concert, and is only noticeable if you go out of your way and look and listen hard...WELL DONE KURT ADKINS!!! YOU HAVE EXCELLED YOURSELF!!!
This is another good value, excellent release, the picture quality is surprisingly sharp and the sound quality is excellent. All in all another must-have for any fan of PROPER music!!!
