4.0 out of 5 stars GARY MOORE will be worth your 15 bucks for this DVD! January 1, 2008
By Cory B.
Format:DVD
I finally picked up a copy of this DVD as a Gary Moore fan after reading the mixed reviews here on amazon. This concert, somewhat similiar to Eric Clapton's Crossroads guitar festival, has recieved some negative reviews here mostly because of the guitarists who were not included in the show. I judged this show by the performances in it instead of worrying about who was left out and I wasn't disappointed. Despite the absence of Eric Clapton and a few others I would've liked to see, this is still an enjoyable presentation with plenty of strong performances by Albert Lee, Hank Marvin, David Gilmour, Paul Rodgers, Paul Carrack, and jazz star Jamie Cullum who delivers a spirited keyboard arrangement of Hendrix's "Angel". The only two disappointments are some pretty crappy singing attempts by Ronnie Wood and Amy Winehouse. Everyone else is just fine. Hank Marvin's classy, gorgeous version of the classic "Sleepwalk" is so perfectly soothing I could listen to it for hours.

The definite highlight for me was watching the great GARY MOORE walk out on stage and show everybody who the most criminally overlooked blues-rock guitarist in the world is! Moore makes the most of his brief slot with a powerhouse version of "Red House" that simply blows Jimi Hendrix's recording right out of the water. Gary calmly takes the stage, greets the audience politely, and then proceeds to TEAR IT UP with an electrifying performance that only Stevie Ray Vaughan could have matched! You can hear the crowd roar their approval during Gary's SCORCHING extended solo, and he ends the song to a well-deserved standing ovation.

Some have asked why Eric Clapton did not show up for this concert. I ask why Gary Moore was never invited to Clapton's Crossroads festival the same year this show was filmed???

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Cause, Questionable Lineup December 2, 2005
Format:DVD
Well the idea SOUNDED fantastic: Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster with a live concert featuring some of its greatest practitioners. Unfortunately somewhere between conceptualization and realization, things went horribly wrong. Now maybe I'm not aware of the logistics needed to pull off such an event, but even a monkey with a bag over his head could've picked a better set of names. I WILL give the organizers this though, they struck platinum when they landed David Gilmour, easily one of THE premiere guitar gods to be associated with the Strat (or ANY guitar for that matter). Likewise Gary Moore. Though considered a Les Paul man since 1990, Gary has abused quite a few strats throughout his hard rock/metal days so he easily qualifies. And to be fair, they supposedly had the legendary Jeff Beck signed as well (certainly another of the greatest EVER) but somehow managed to lose him in the end. From there, things rapidly deteriorated to the point of complete confusion. Where was Robin Trower?? It's been said that he's been staying close to home due to touring costs. And Ritchie Blackmore?? Couldn't anyone convince him to plug in again for just one night?? How about Mark Knopfler?? Buddy Guy?? What about young guns Joe Bonamassa, Chris Duarte, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd?? Didn't anyone think of buying Eric Johnson a plane ticket??? Unfortunately, oversights like these made for a rather disappointing show. If you're a guitar-playing music fan looking for strat players to show you how it's done, you'll have to wade through a lot of junk to get to the good stuff. But enough whining; here are the highlights:

For me, the whole reason to buy this DVD is David Gilmour, who took the stage to a standing ovation. The crowd was not disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak Talent Lineup and Packaging Hinders this DVD June 26, 2005
Format:DVD
Let's cut to the chase, shall we? The reason I obtained this dvd was because I love guitar and want to obtain the best guitar dvds out there. This DVD is pretty darn lame for a show that's supposed to be celebrating the Fender Stratocaster electric guitar on the occasion of it's 50th Anniversary, a huge milestone for a pop culture icon. There are basically two reasons to buy it: Gary Moore's incendiary tribute to Jimi Hendrix on "Red House," so hot it will melt your dvd player, and David Gilmour's three songs.

The rest is pretty tepid and the roster features some no-name talent that have NO Business being on that stage: Theresa Andersson!? Who? Yeah, she plays guitar, but she's a rhythm player. Jamie Cullum?! Who?! Nobody in his band even PLAYS guitar! What were these producers even thinking putting a keyboard band like this on the bill, LET ALONE the video? Amy Winehouse?! Who? She's a weak singer that can barely hold her own on Karoake Night at Billy Bob's BBQ-O-Rama and would got stomped by "American Idol's" Simon.

A few other fret-grinders play well: Hank Marvin (great version of "Sleepwalk"), Albert Lee, and Brian May. Paul Rodgers is in excellent voice. Joe Walsh slogs through four tunes, but his playing here cannot hold a candle to his monumental performance on Clapton's "Crossroad" Guitar concert DVD. He looks very tired and shagged out.

The All-Star jam at the end is awful, mostly because they chose a poor vehicle for guitar soloing, Rod Stewart's "Stay With Me."

Where were the rest of the Stratocaster greats? Ever hear of a guy named Eric Clapton? Fender even sells a Clapton Strat model. If I am organizing this show, I organize it around Clapton's schedule and I don't do it without him!
