Les Paul was a bona fide genius. I've played acoustic and electric guitar, as well as tenor and baritone sax (although nowhere near the level of the guys on this DVD), for many years so I know what kind of monster musicianship went into playing it. In case you didn't know, Les Paul (and his friend Leo Fender, working separately and whose last name you should also recognize) had everything to do with the invention of the electric guitar. In addition, Les Paul invented recording studio techniques that are still in use today. Though the equipment has changed, those techniques are still the same. Everyone who uses a recording studio today - including myself - is still using many of those same techniques today.

I first saw the edited PBS version and just HAD to buy the DVD. Take it from an old-school rock'n'roller: I'm telling you THIS SHOW IS NOT TO BE MISSED! The show was recorded on what would have been Les Paul's 95th birthday in 2010 in a tiny club in NYC. You'll have a better seat than anyone who was actually at this invitation-only event.

The show features the amazing guitar work of Jeff Beck, the gorgeous Irish vocalist Imelda May, who, when she covers the 1950's Les Paul and Mary Ford records contained in the show, is a dead ringer for Mary Ford. Ms. May did the same trick Ms. Ford did on the original Paul and Ford Records of the 1950's (one of Les Paul's many inventions) - she pre-recorded the harmony vocals on such songs as "How High The Moon", "Mockingbird Hill", "Tiger Rag" and more - and sang the lead vocal live with the band and the recorded harmony tracks - essentially singing harmony with herself. Each of the guest artists came out in turn and did their stuff, and boy, did they do it UP!

The Irridium show itself is fabulous. As if things couldn't get any better, there are a plethora of extras on this disc that are certainly worth mentioning.

There's a 15-minute bit with JB in his home with some of his most treasured guitars, relating a story to each one, that is just fascinating to watch. A Strat gifted from John McLaughlin? The Seymour Duncan "Tele-Gib" traded for the 1954 Yardbirds-era Esquire, and subsequent regret? A plastic guitar from Jimmy Page? A '54 Sunburst Strat that some guy just GAVE him? The "workhorse" Telecaster? Yep, pretty kewl stuff!

There's 1983 concert footage of JB playing live with Les Paul that's a hoot; LP tries to yank Beck's cord out of his Strat after a particularly blistering solo, and JB then tries to return the joke by de-tuning LP's; all in great fun.

From the same show, there's a Les Paul solo performance where he showcases his "little black box", which allows him to first layer several tracks spontaneously, then play lead over them. It reminds you just how much of a genius this guy was, not only as a musician, but as an inventor and engineer.

Then there's a long interview with JB. It's unfortunately marred by an annoying Entertainment Tonight/Access Hollywood-wannabe who obviously attended The Diane Saywer School Of Overanimated Interviewing. JB does relate a lot of his early life and influences, both from his family and music, and the over-acting-fake-tan-bimbo aside, it's damn interesting.

All of this may get overlooked with the other reviews in the excitement of the Irridium show, but anyone who is interested in purchasing this great DVD should know what else lies in store.

OK - I confess to being a hardcore Beck fan. But this DVD is the one that will pull in anyone who had wondered what the "buzz" about Jeff Beck is. He does spot-on versions of songs that you have probably heard from the original sources (Les Paul & Mary Ford, for example) - but his playing is in homage to the sources, and is not overly modified, as too many artists would have done.

And..."The Train Kept A Rollin' " is worth the price alone. You hear Jeff do a nod to his Yardbird days, yet retain the aura of the original song. Wow.

Imelda May adds vocals on about half of the twenty tracks - and she is amazing. Her obvious love for the music pops right out of the screen. The rest of the musicians are likewise stellar - including Imelda's husband, Darrel Higham on guitar and vocals (he was part of Jeff's Big Time Playboy band, and added chops to the "Crazy Legs" CD,also a classic).

Among the added tracks on the DVD there are a great interview with Jeff, a clip of him showing off his "toys" (a guitar selection to die for!)and two pieces with Les Paul showing why he will always be remembered both as an artist and an inventor. The clip of him and Jeff jamming in the '80s is joyful and charming. Talk about loving what you get paid to do!

I plan on loaning this DVD out to my friends - the ones who wonder why I am such a Beckophile. I'm sure it will blow them away as much as it has blown ME away.

I think what is missed in all the reviews is the fact that Jeff Beck is not even the best part of this performance. Sure, Jeff can play this style he grew up with as good as anyone, but the real focus here should be Imelda May and her band. First, Imelda May's vocals are why Jeff Beck decided to do a project like this in the first place. She is an amazing blues/rockabilly singer who has really created her own sound in recent years. Her husband Darrel Higham is also singing lead vocals throughout the show. Darrel is an incredible lead guitarist and fantastic vocalist. Trust me, had Darrel been playing lead guitar, he would have MORE than held his own against Beck or Setzer. Jeff is icing on the cake with Imelda May's drummer and bass player and Darrel really keeping this "train rolling"!
