Editorial Reviews

George Benson is one of the finest guitar players in the history
of jazz. Over the years he has worked in many different genres
from soul to jazz to blues to pop and achieved success in all of
them. He has one of the rare artists who has managed to combine
critical acclaim and commercial success in equal measures.
A frequent visitor to Montreux (he has performed there 11 times
including 2005), George Benson has selected this show from
1986 as the first he would like released. Taken from the height of
his commercial success the concert includes classics and hit
tracks throughout the set including Lady Love Me (One More
Time), Love Ballad, In Your Eyes, Love x Love, 20/20, On
Broadway, Turn Your Love Around and Never Give Up On A Good
Thing among many more. / Track Listing

Customer Reviews

The sound quality is great and picture too.

This is an incredible performance, and if you had even a smidge of interest in this band, this will cement their appeal in no uncertain terms.
S. Kurtz
Clapton offers some nice solos during his segment and sings really well on a duet of Otis' masterpiece "Double Trouble".

I have been waiting for a "complete" live show from Talk Talk for a long time, the wait was worth it....I have some audio clips from this show, but, having the full on video experience and being able to actually watch the band play songs like "It's You" & "I Don't Believe In You" as well as all of the other songs make for an incredible show. Talk Talk has been one, if not my favorite band for a long time now with Spirit Of Eden being my fave album. It's really sad seeing all of the 80's bands getting back together and recording & touring and knowing that Talk Talk will never be one of those bands....Get this DVD!!! You won't regret it....

Clapton's career since his return in the 80's has been an interesting musical journey throught his musical influcences from blues to rock to pop. He flirted with Pop during the early 80's and slowly began moving towards the blues again with his album Journeynan. This video is from the end of his pop period and it shows some fine playing from Calpton and the rest of the band. The performance is true to the era as some of the arragements are 80's influenced (as well as tye clothes!).

After all these years of hearing Clapton perform with blues/rock drummers like Steve Gadd it is interesting on hearing him with Phil Collins on drums. His drumming is quite recognizable and it provided a different back beat for Clapton to perform to. Collins druming was pop oriented and helped Clapton explore some new territories. The rest of the band kept playing with Clapton during the 80's and 90's - specially Nathan East on Bass.

Overall, the performance is, as expected, very good and it is nice addition to Clapton's video collection.

Why did Eagle Vision decide to remove "Run" and the encore with Robert Cray?

The Ramblin On My Mind > Have You Ever Loved A Woman encore track is awesome with a bunch of key changes, and Robert Cray on guitar.

A shame, but still a great DVD, much more complete than the other DVD from 1986 ("Eric Clapton and Friends").

As for the performance, it is top notch. Clapton had a great group of players in 86-87 with the four piece band of Collins/East/Phillinganes.

Greg Phillinganes provides the vocals for the chorus of "White Room" and the entire song of "Behind the Mask".

Some of Greg Phillingnaes synths are rather dated, but it doesn't detract from these excellent shows. Additionally, Phil Collins rocks the house with his smash hit "In The Air Tonight".

Can't recommend this enough despite its shortcomings. It would be five stars if it was complete.

Eric Clapton was in fine voice and his guitar-playing was top-notch as always in this concert from 1986. Unfortunately, there were also some factors that really detracted from my enjoyment of the performance. First of all, I hated the electric keyboards of Greg Phillinganes. That noodling, mellotron sound, which was so popular in this 80s, is featured far too prominently in the mix to the extent that he even has several solos. In addition, there is a giant dead spot in the middle of the show when Clapton performs several songs that were then new but which have not stood the test of time. They are just not very good. The song that Phillinganes leads with bassist Nathan East is simply awful. A surprise highlight comes when Phil Collins leads the band in a performance of his classic "In the Air Tonight," one of the few songs from his solo work that I care for.

I never thought that something like this could finally came out of the vaults to find its way to my library! An old concert from George Benson in Montreaux! The year was 1986. I never even dreamed to own something like this. The moment I saw this dvd in my cd shop I had to own it, so I did buy it immediatly. What is it all about? George Benson the best living jazz guitarist playing with a small-big band in Montreaux a set of standards and old favorities of his. Nothing less than fantastic! He was in splendid shape, at the top of his game. Young and charismatic. He delight us with burning bop licks and tender lines with the guitar and then he sings like the best with a voice which is nothing less than amazing. George is a master entertainer with a musical talent like noone. As a jazz guitarist myself I really really love him and I suggest the purchase of this dvd to every fan of the Jazz guitar and of good music in general. The program is as i said earlier, based on old favorites of his (Love ballad, Never give up on a good thing, Weekend in L.A. etc), with some standards (I'm in the mood for love etc) ... A must have.

George Benson- Live in Montreux, 1986 is Benson at his best! With a running time of 103 minutes or so, this DVD is priceless, and it leaves you wanting more.
First of all, the DVD is very well put together from start to finish. No fillers, no interviews, no talking, just George and the band doing their thing. The video and sound quality is excellent and so is the set list which showcases 18 songs, all superbly done.
Benson even acknowledges then band member, guitarist Michael O'Neill. O'Neill sounds great here in the spotlight and he also spent several years playing in the George Benson camp before going solo. O'Neill's 2000 release "Never Too Late" is sprinkled with a Benson flavor. It is very enjoyable and is definitely worth the purchase.
This DVD is a must for the Benson fans. George delivers 100%, both singing and playing. This one's a keeper! Five stars isn't enough!
