Editorial Reviews

Talk Talk were one of the most innovative and original British bands of the eighties. They enjoyed a string of successful albums and singles both in the UK and right across Europe. 1986 was the band's only appearance at Montreux and caught them at the height of their success. With a set list packed with hit singles and lead singer / main songwriter Mark Hollis' charismatic performance they delivered an outstanding concert that draws a great response from the packed Swiss crowd.

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....

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.

Eric Clapton was in fine voice and his guitar-playing was top-notch as always in this concert from 1986. Unfortunately, there were also some factors that really detracted from my enjoyment of the performance. First of all, I hated the electric keyboards of Greg Phillinganes. That noodling, mellotron sound, which was so popular in this 80s, is featured far too prominently in the mix to the extent that he even has several solos. In addition, there is a giant dead spot in the middle of the show when Clapton performs several songs that were then new but which have not stood the test of time. They are just not very good. The song that Phillinganes leads with bassist Nathan East is simply awful. A surprise highlight comes when Phil Collins leads the band in a performance of his classic "In the Air Tonight," one of the few songs from his solo work that I care for.

Why did Eagle Vision decide to remove "Run" and the encore with Robert Cray?

The Ramblin On My Mind > Have You Ever Loved A Woman encore track is awesome with a bunch of key changes, and Robert Cray on guitar.

A shame, but still a great DVD, much more complete than the other DVD from 1986 ("Eric Clapton and Friends").

As for the performance, it is top notch. Clapton had a great group of players in 86-87 with the four piece band of Collins/East/Phillinganes.

Greg Phillinganes provides the vocals for the chorus of "White Room" and the entire song of "Behind the Mask".

Some of Greg Phillingnaes synths are rather dated, but it doesn't detract from these excellent shows. Additionally, Phil Collins rocks the house with his smash hit "In The Air Tonight".

Can't recommend this enough despite its shortcomings. It would be five stars if it was complete.

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.

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.
