Cactus to me has always been about the guitar playing of Jim McCarty and he doesn't disappoint here. Carmine and Tim's reputation is well known (some good, some not so good) - but I was surprised at how much I missed the singing of Rusty Day. Jimmy tries hard - but I missed Rusty and it isn't quite the same without him.
If you are into the nostalgia trip (and that's not terrible), this is a DVD to watch if you are a very big Cactus fan. Worth the price (to me) just to watch McCarty. If you are questioning where to spend your dollars on this band - get the first or second CD. Both are excellent (and the third isn't bad either).
This reunion DVD is a great companion to the recently released reunion CD, "Cactus V." Jimmy Kunes does a fine job, has a great voice but is not Rusty Day- he's arguably a better singer but not really the frontman Rusty was, which is why some hardcore fans want to complain. But the guy clearly wails and works his tail off in this show, and you can see from the looks of the other guys in the band they really like playing with him him so in my book he's a good fit.
A high point of the video is Jim McCarty's guitar work. He always could burn on a great riff, but you can tell his blues playing has evolved greatly since the old days. The guitar solo on Oleo is worth the price of this DVD by itself. Another high point is McCarty's interplay with Bogert and Appice on One Way or Another, a great song that manages to blend rock,blues,proto-metal and prog elements together into an ultimately satisfying result. Bogert and Appice are virtuoso players who can play cirlces around most drummers and bassists half their age, and their solos on this DVD show they still have the chops to do it.Read more ›
