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

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! November 1, 2008
By bozzy1
Format:DVD
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....

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! October 31, 2008
Format:DVD
I always knew Talk Talk was a great band...on record at least, because I had never heard any live material...and this confirms that they were not only a great band in the studio, but on the stage was well.

The highlights are many...you could say each song is a highlight, it's that good...and, upon first view, IT'S YOU and CALL IN THE NIGHT BOY are the two that seemed to hit me that hardest.

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.

A great DVD and well worth every cent you pay for it.

Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Footage Of The Rare Otis Rush April 14, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Otis Rush, the West Side Bluesman, is one of the rarities of American Blues Music. Like Albert King, he is a self-taught left-handed guitarist who plays an upside down right-handed and strung guitar, has great innovative bends (especially Otis' signature "lazy" vibrato) and sings with a convincing passion. There is very little available for fans to see. In 2003 the "Live Blues Part 1" on Blues Express was released showing us an older, slower Mr Rush BUT with a fabulous band! I would highly recommend this set too!

This DVD was eagerly awaited by all Blues fans. It was shot in 1986 and shows us a younger (52) Otis in his first of three Montreux performances between 1986 and 1996 (thanks to Eric Clapton). Otis had been to Europe with the AFBF in the 1960s and his input in those DVDs is very exciting. In this set he has the Professor Eddie Lusk Blues Review as his backup group and honestly-they are only adequate. Otis needs a horn section and a tighter drummer and bassist to bring out his sound. Otis himself sings great and puts over a very good overall performance. His guitar is a little thin and down in the mix. However we learn a few great things about his technique--like he plays a lot without a pick and also when he does pick he uses it from different sides and angles-pretty cool! And the most revealing item: his great vibrato is done not only with his ring finger-but also his forefinger. I'm sure this is where Mike Bloomfield picked it up-one of Mike's most distinctive licks!

The set is very good and comprehensive for 1986. Many tunes are from his "Right Place, Wrong Time" LP. An LP that took ten years to be released. He starts with "Tops" which is from an album he recorded at the San Francisco Blues Festival and is probably his best live CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage 80's Clapton November 11, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
