Editorial Reviews

This Final Performance Tribute all began on Les Paul's 90th birthday when luminaries from the musical world gathered to celebrate at New York s historic Iridium Jazz Club. Les and friends 'jammed' every Monday for the next four years until the legend left us. Great moments from many of those cool sessions are presented in this tribute to the man who created a sonic boom with the solid-body electric guitar. It's all here. A tribute the way Les would have wanted it played. About the Collector's Edition: Les jams live with special guests like Keith Richards, Steve Miller, and Jose Feliciano. Musical luminaries Bonnie Raitt, Tony Bennett, Sonya Hensley and other share their thoughts on Les. Les plays 23 songs, including old favorites like 'Tennessee Waltz,' 'Route 66' and 'Back Home Again in Indiana'. 70 Minutes of 'bonus Features' including the original rendition of 'How High the Moon' with wife Mary Ford. Also includes audio tracks for download! In addition to the Blu-ray disc, this combo pack also includes: 1. DVD version of the program(s) that you can play in your DVD player, vehicle or computer. 2.  Digital copy of the program that you can download to your computer and/or transfer to your mobile devices. Questar is pleased to offer you the ability to watch our award-wining programs whenever and wherever you want!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great talent was only in front of the camera August 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
Buy this disk for the performance, but be prepared to learn that this rascal is not the 1950's straight-laced character you may have assumed. Rate it PG. Ninety years old and arthritic, and he's full of life and still plays better than I can hope to. It will leave you wanting more and less - more Les Paul and less camera kitsch. The performance is 5* and the videography is 2*. The audio is competent and and free of gimmicks, but why does every musical performance have to look like an amateur music video these days? The incessant camera movement, sloppy focus and excessive, boring and ill-timed cut-aways (to cover botched shots?) are an annoying distraction when you are trying to watch a great performance. You don't look away or need "creative" camera angles to avoid boredom when Les Paul is playing! As a guitar player, I like the closeups, but even I know that an extra camera on a tripod left running with a broad shot is how you cover for the guys doing the tight shots. The legendary director John Ford had it right when he said that the actors should move - not the camera. The disk is filled up with plenty of extras for the nostalgia buffs, but I can't believe that they didn't record more of this or other sessions than a measly hour. This performance deserved a state-of-the-art production and an encore, but I guess all his fans would feel that way.

The BluRay disk appears to be a rush job. The pop-up menu for time and chapter number comes up blank on my Panasonic making it hard to find my favorite spots. There is no way to tell it to play through all the extras, so you have to cue up each one separately. This also is the first disk I've seen where the Dolby track is in two-channel stereo and the linear PCM track is the surround. This was unexpected and confusing at first; but I welcome lossless multi-channel sound in any format, and I think it should be mandatory for BluRay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Les is not at his best April 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
Les Paul live in NY is a wonderful tribute TO Les Paul. Many famous guitar heroes join him on stage, but this is a Les Paul nearing the end of his song, so his playing is minimal...in some case just a note or chord or two.. Which some might find sad. (even his jokes you have heaard before.)

If you love Les and just want anything that captures this amazing mans presence (as I do) you will enjoy Les at his passionate best.. If you are looking for a Les Paul that is going to burn thru riffs and lay out some melodic gems (as in the past)- this is not the dvd/cd for you. There are some wonderful performances from his guests....

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to see him play January 3, 2013

Could be better,but the real shame is that they cut away to do useless interviews, of people saying how could he plays, while he's playing. Now that is really stupid!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wizard of Waukesha December 7, 2013

The Wizard of Waukesha has been well honored in this tribute. He had forgotten more about the guitar than most of these guest stars will ever know. The greatest!

Les Paul can sure play a guitar. This concert recording is very good. The sound is clear and so is the video on bluray. The price was a bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Disappointing March 10, 2013
By James
Verified Purchase
I couldn't get some of the audio settings to work on the bluray on my player which was disappointing. The music was OK, but I'm afraid to say it's nothing special.
