4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD of Carey Bell's Last Recordings July 21, 2007
Listening to and watching Carey Bell's vigorous vocals and harp playing on a new CD/DVD he share with his son Lurrie, "Gettin' Up Live" (Delmark), one will be astonished to learn that Carey had suffered a stroke, fell and broke a hip weeks before and yet still appeared at Rosa's a few days after leaving the hospital. This new recording/ video captures the two at Rosa's in July, 2006 and at Buddy Guy's Legend's in October 2006, along with some intimate performances at Lurrie's home the day after the Rosa's performance. With strong supporting musicians for the band sides and the empathy they demonstrate whenever they perform together, the Bells have produced both a strong CD and a delightful DVD. The CD has 4 performances from Rosa's, Legends, and Lurrie's home, while the DVD adds two performances from Rosa's. The band selections are excellent with Roosevelt Purifoy certainly adding solid keyboards in support and the bass drum duos of Bob Stroger & Brian `BJ' Jones or Joe Thomas & Kenny Smith keep things going. Scott Cable joins on guitar on Lurrie's vocal at Rosa's (a solid Baby Please Don't Go) and the Legends' performances. Carey is first heard on Junior Wells' What My Mama Told Me, which is appropriate because Bell's vocals evoke Wells. "Gettin' Up" is one of those funky blues Carey was effective at, while at Legends he does a couple of Little Walter numbers along with his "Low Down Dirty Shame." In addition to Bell's vocals and really solid harp, Lurrie is marvelous with his mercurial guitar playing recalling some of Jimmy Dawkins' equally fiery accompaniments on Carey's first album over 35 years. Lurrie has really emerged as one of the finest blues guitarists, especially as an accompanist with suggestions of Dawkins and the equally individualistic Hubert Sumlin. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the real Carey Bell. March 24, 2012
As a sideman, Carey Bell has enlightened hundreds of blues records with his amazing harp playing. As a leader, he has recorded several gorgeous blues - most of them for Alligator, especially on Living Chicago Blues 1. And as an entertainer, Carey Bell would always give high energy performances, and catch each and every listener.
But, on this CD/DVD, he COULDN'T give his best, because he was just coming out of hospital : so what you see here is just an old and very sick man who needed to rest and was unable to sing and play, as he used to. Even though he succeed to sing an emotional acoustic song in Lurrie's place, this DVD gives a wrong and sad picture of the man.
Let's wait for other videos recorded when Carey was at his best, and forget this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL I CAN SAY IS EXCELLENT May 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have waited for this to come out, well worth the wait. This is the only other footage I have seen of him, other than the Willie Dixon dvd (I Am The Blues). This is also worth buying love that one too. Carey is in a wheel chair he had a stroke fell and broke his hip, this doesn't seem to affect his music. His vocals and harp playing are what we would expect from him (excellent). Lurrie has some great vocals, and his guitar playing is great they also have good old Bob Stroger on bass, love this man's steady bass line. Plus the sound quality is great even dts surround. Delmark has great quality dvd's you will enjoy this one. It may be all we see of him, since he passed in May-07 at age 70.
