Editorial Reviews

Born in the Honey: The Pinetop Perkins Story is the only authorized video biography of 93-year-old blues piano legend Pinetop Perkins. It outlines his humble beginnings and his long life in the Blues through documentary footage, interviews with fellow friends and musicians such as Bobby Rush, Ike Turner, Kim Wilson and others, and straight from the legend himself. Several live performances are included on the DVD and the accompanying CD features a live show in Chicago and a previously unreleased studio take on "Rather Quit Her Than Hit Her." This is a rare and special glimpse into the life and music of a true legend in American music.

4.0 out of 5 stars NICE DOCUMENTARY December 9, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this one out of curiosity, it turned out to be very good. As a blues lover this is great to see a legend speak in his own words about himself, you see the serious side of him, and yes he has an excellent sense of humor. There are a lot of good interviews with people he knows, this man has got a lot of class. This is a two disc set, one is music the other the documentary, the music disc is of course great. But the documentary is the best I have seen for a while, but the sound quality on this is not the best. I would say overall this was a good find, and he is ninety four years old and just released a new album in May of 2008. He is one of a kind, blues lovers will enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Musical Documentary May 30, 2009
By Haney
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To know that as of mid 2009, Pinetop Perkins and Honeyboy Edwards are still carrying on and relevant is amazing as they are the final survivors among actual players from the legendary delta blues era in the 30s and beyond.

If you are in to the life-story of a true original delta bluesman musician with live performances intermittently placed and many other musicians providing stories and insight about Pinetop, then this is a must see.
On a trivial note, the narrator mentioned Pinetop played in Cairo IL (pronounced it "keye-row" as in Egypt) ... it is pronounced "Kare-o" officially by the locals.

I highly recommend the DVD Honeyboy about David "Honeyboy" Edwards if you liked Pine-top ... another great story and performances by a 95+ year old delta blues legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars His music was magic, blues magic. March 14, 2013

Pinetop Perkins was an outstanding blues piano player. His music will live on long and on. He and Hubert Sumlin made magic when they played together. They will surely be missed.
