Ok, but no Maby,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Joe Jackson - Live in Tokyo (DVD)
I'm a big fan of Joe Jackson and his band, especially (but not limited to) their energetic first two albums. But the Joe Jackson band without Graham Maby on bass is like The Who without Keith Moon on drums. Maby has been with Joe from the start, right up to the present (current) tour. But this particular DVD was shot during a very rare time when Maby wasn't part of the JJ tour. With all those other shows available for release, why this one? The replacement bassist isn't bad, I'd say he's above average for a typical rock bass player. But JJ's music requires a special type of bass player, and Graham Maby is the real deal. So I'd only recommend this DVD for people who must have everything Joe Jackson, but in my opinion you are not hearing a "true" JJ show unless you get Graham Maby in the mix.
