He is a tremendous talent, absolutely gorgeous to look at and he delivers a powerful, energetic performance of his old hits plus some songs I had never heard before including a dedication to his daughter, Verity. Living in the United States, I have been unable to attend a David Essex concert but have followed his career since 1974. This DVD is a rare treat and a treasure. Includes performances of Here it comes again, The Whisper, Down Again, Me & My Girl Nightclubbing, A song from the London Stage Play of Lord Byron (This is the one dedicated to his daughter), You're so feirce,Rock On, Lamplight, Fishing For The Moon, Second Hand Love, Moonlight Dancing, A Medley of You Don't Know & Twist and Shout, Silver Dream Machine, and On My Bike.
The DVD begins with an introduction by Jim Dandy "Lord Have Mercy on My Soul", and then the rest of the songs are as follows:
"Back Door Man" (He introduces the song by saying that back home in Arkansas, when the men are working in the fields, there's a back door man going around and getting it on with their women).
"Hot and Nasty" (that's what they call Jim Dandy).
"Mutants of the Monster"
"Taxman" (according to Jim nobody wants to work for the tax man).
"Jim Dandy" (THIS IS THEIR CLASSIC "JIM DANDY TO THE RESCUE" - ITS A GREAT ONE ABOUT JIM DANDY COMING TO THE RESUE OF A "LITTLE GIRL" CRYING - JIM DANDY CAME TO HER RESUE, HE COULDN'T STAND TO SEE A "LITTLE GIRL" CRY, SO JIM DANDY DIDN'T WASTE NO TIME!!!).(GO JIM DANDY!!! GO JIM DANDY!!).
IT ONLY HAS A RUNNING TIME OF APPROX.42 MINUTES, BUT IT IS GOOD ENTERTAINMENT. AT ONE TIME JIM DANDY EVEN USES A "WASHBOARD" TO MAKE MUSIC,WHICH ADDS TO THE "ARKANSAS" MYSTIC. IT DOES HAVE SOME SLIGHT BONUS MATERIAL. OVERALL, I WOULD SAY THIS IS AN ENJOYABLE CONCERT TO WATCH. THE BAND IS GREAT, THEY PERFORM GREAT GUITAR WORK. BASED ON THE ABOVE, I DO RECOMMEND THIS CONCERT DVD, IT IS GREAT VINTAGE BLACKOAK ARKANSAS PERFORMING AT THEIR BEST!!!
