Music DVD Review: Nils Lofgren & Friends Live Acoustic

Somewhere about midway through this great DVD, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, one of the numerous "friends" who join Nils Lofgren here--and no guitar slouch himself--offers the following assessment of Lofgren:

"There are three kinds of guitar people. There are guitar owners, and there's about a million of those. There are guitar players, and there's a few of those. Then there are guitarists," Baxter says turning to look at his friend Lofgren. "Nils writes great songs. He sings beautifully. But there are only a few people who can do what he does with a guitar."

To be sure, Nils Lofgren has written some damn fine songs over the years. It's possible you may have even heard a few of them. The funky "I Came to Dance," the lovely ballad "Valentine," or his ode to a Rolling Stone "Keith Don't Go" come to mind.

However it's far more likely you haven't, as Nils Lofgren is best known as a sideman. You know him for his fine work on Neil Young albums like After The Gold Rush. You even more likely know him as that guitarist for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band who looks like a sawed-off cross between Keith Richards and Joey from Friends. You remember right? Nils was that guy who did the backflips off a trampoline on the Born In The USA tour. He even did a solo album called Flip around that time.

The thing is, what a lot of people don't know about Lofgren is that he is a world class guitarist. Although he has had his moments with Springsteen--the solos on the title tracks of both Tunnel Of Love and The Rising are just two such moments uniquely stamped with his signature--Lofgren's virtuoso ability is largely swallowed up in the big noise created by the E Street Band.

Not so on this great DVD.

This is a terrific DVD.Nils is a genius.My only complaints are that the dvd is only in stereo and there is no booklet in the dvd case.The picture quality is great as is the stereo only sound.My favorite song is one of the bonus tracks-Mud In Your Eye.

It's been along time since I heard or bought anything from Nils, and I came to this album by way of an end credit song over an episode of the Sopranos. Although not credited on the show the voice was unmistakably his and I decided to make a purchase of this acoustic DVD after listening to snippets of the tracks via Amazon.

What can I say the stuff I was not familiar with was a revelation. I had forgotten just how good this guy is. Flanked by many of his old friends the best review I can give of this DVD is a quote from Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.

"Nils is a triple scale guy in a double scale world"

If you want to hear beautiful songs delivered by a master guitarist backed by a top flight musicians.

Buy and enjoy
