What can I say......It's an Eagle Eye Production. Sound quality and great camera work makes this product a must have for your music library. John Mayall might be in his 70's but man can he play the Blues......You won't be disappointed, especially with Eric Clapton's guitar work.......

We guitar players are very competitive, and some of the reviews here show that. Was Buddy better than Clapton? Was Taylor better than Buddy? Make no mistake, each player in this great DVD held his own. Taylor played a great slide. Buddy is a very good blues-rock guitar player, although purists of the blues will find his style a little 'hard rock'. Clapton played great, and the audience in this concert showed it to him. Don't expect Eric to play flashy runs, the melodic style of him has taken over, but it was great.
Sound is really tight, Mayall plays a great piano and harmonica, and sings as if he was 40. He managed to get 3 different guitar playing styles in an evening of the blues. Amazing video quality, in anamorphic 16:9, sound is 5.1 or Dolby Digital, your choice, and there even is a brief interview wiht Mayall and behind the scenes shots. DVD includes leaflet with many pictures and a message byn John, and, especially, royalties from this DVD will help UNICEF. So if you are a fan of the blues and great guitar playing, this DVD is for you.

Well like most Blues fans my age, I got the Bluesbreakers LP in 1966 and played it to death. I spent countless hours playing along with Eric Clapton on "All Your Love" and "Hideaway". They were great days. John Mayall has done so much to promote the blues world-wide, he can't get enough credit. Well, also like most people, after his time with Mick Taylor ("Crusade") I stopped buying his records.
This concert in Liverpool is very entertaining. It has a great song selection and the sound is good. Mayall brings out the old Bluesbreakers Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor (Why no Peter Green?) and they do a pretty good job. Taylor has a great tone and is as stone faced as ever. He is a matter-of-fact guitarist and plays well, especially on the Albert King number "Oh, Pretty Woman" -written by WDIA DJ AC Williams. Eric comes out and does a good job as well. He has been criticized for years as one who has stopped trying to be flash and has become more of a B.B. King-type of Blues player. He does "Hideaway" and "Have You Heard" and "All Your Love" from the original LP of so long ago. He uses his flashy Fender custom shop 2002 strat, too!
The previous reviews have raved about Buddy Whittington (another Texan guitar player!) with his special amps and tone BUT. as a guitar player for 40 years I think the flash technique (volume control, pick harmonics of the 1970s rock scene), with very little soul or bending (no 1 Blues technique!!!) is ok, but not great for pure blues. Actually Buddy should get a job with Steely Dan or a Steely Dan tribute band.
John Mayall's vocals in is old age have improved. His harp playing is more like a blues Bob Dylan (Butterfield used to make fun of it!). He should stick to organizing and arranging.

If your taste runs to British Blues, Mayall is in fine form with a great backup band, as usual.
Great to see former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. Eric Clapton also comes to play.
Video is top notch in Blu-ray, but the audio is the real treat. The DD5.1 track is great, the 2.0 stereo PCM is better,
but the DTS-HD Master audio track is superb. Clean tight sound with a great soundstage,this one of the best sounding concerts
on Blu-ray, that I've ever heard.

At least one other reviewer mentioned how lack-luster Clapton's performance seemed in this concert. It was NOT Clapton's fault. When I read the review I hadn't heard the DVD yet, and I thought it may have been because he didn't have DTS capability. I do, and thought that would solve the problem. It didn't. The problem lies with the idiot who was running the board and the other idiot who is responsible for the mix. Clapton was simply turned way down ... so far down you can't hear him. The concert, other than this really screwed up mix, is excellent.

At 70 years of age John Mayall shows us that he still has what it takes to deliver two hours of great blues rock. I acknowledge that he doesn't have the best voice around (what blueman does?), but is there nothing he can't do? In this concert he shows us all his talents. Whether it's playing guitar, keyboards, or harmonica, Mayall goes at it with the skill of a master and the energy of a much younger musician. He even plays both keyboard & harmonica at the same time!
This concert has a good set list containing many classics, and a variety of sounds played by his own band and the guitar legends Mick Taylor and Eric Clapton, but also an old bloke (who I had never heard of & can't remember his name now) playing surprisingly good blues on a trombone!
All the guys Mayall has got together for this concert are consummate professionals. None of them try to steal the show or compete with each other, which could easily have happened. Instead they respect each other's talent, play their bit, and then step back and let someone else have their moment in the spotlight. This results in a smooth flowing blend of sound.
We all know how good these musicians are, but what you want to know if you are reading this review is whether they deliver the goods in this concert. The answer is yes they do. The quality of sound is fantastic, as is the picture quality. The interview with Mayall is ok, but nothing fantastic. However, the concert is a superb show that I recommend to any fan of blues rock. The only disappointment is that the CD version has three extra tracks not included on this DVD.
