  1. It a odd thing these Brits ripping off black blues musicians. When a previous reviewer alluded to Taylor; I thought he meant Hound Dog Taylor; the great Chicago slide guitar player. You can gussy it up all you want, the real deal is only to be found from the real bluesmen.

  2. GREAT CONCERT – VERY GOOD BACK UP MUSICIANS…
    VIDEO IS VERY CLEAN FOR A CONCERT – DTS AND DD-5.1 HAVE NO CENTER CHANNEL SOUND OUTPUT. I TRIED IT OUT IN DD 2.0 AND MY RECEIVER KICKED INTO DTS NEO:6 MATRIXED TO 7.1 AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. I HAD TO DO THAT WITH HEART-ALIVE IN SEATTLE, STYXX-PARADISE AND THE MOODY BLUES-ALBERT HALL(THIS ONE HAD NO .1 (SUB) AND ALL OF THESE DVD’S SOUNDED MUCH BETTER IN DTS NEO:6. BUTTTT… NOTHING BEATS TRUE DTS SUCH AS HELL FREEZES OVER AND CLAPTON-ONE MORE CAR, ONE MORE RIDER…

  5. The first thing that caught me by surprise was how good Mick Taylor still is. He even traded riffs for awhile with the great Buddy Whittington, no doubt holding his own. While Clapton is no longer (and hasn’t been) the blues guitarist he was. He did ok. Especially after Whittington ripped off a smoking solo on Have You Heard. Clapton must have been thinking, “I have to solo after that”. He hung in there and played a nice blues solo. Kudos for not doing a “runner”. Whittingtons tone (and some of his riffs) remind me of a Clapton from Let It Rain time frame. This dvd was better than I expected. Blues guitar players will love it. Oh, finally Clapton plays a nice solo on I’m Tore Down.
