Product Description

Liverpool's King's Dock on July 19, 2003 was the venue for a long awaited and much anticipated reunion between Eric Clapton and John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. The occasion was both a celebration of John Mayall's 70th year and a fundraiser for UNICEF. Also invited to the party were former Bluesbreaker and Rolling Stone Mick Taylor and veteran trombonist Chris Barber. If you're a lover of the blues it doesn't get much better than this. The show ran for around two and a half hours and the film is now presented here in its entirety for the first time.

By To The Max"Bax" TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 23 2015
Format: DVD
Over 4500 blues fans packed a huge circus tent in Liverpool to take in this night to remember. You could tell that John was overwhelmed by the reception from the crowd as well as sharing the stage with past and present Bluesbreakers and special guests. Mayall was especially pleased that Eric Clapton who was there 40 years earlier to kick off the Bluesbreakers dynasty made it for this special evening.

The three key guitarists for this shindig were Clapton, Mick Taylor and Buddy Whittington(present guitarist with the Bluesbreakers). In my opinion, Buddy stole the show where the three were concerned but all performed in their own flawless styles. Buddy has since released a couple solo efforts since leaving the Bluesbreakers which are also worth a listen. The man is an amazing guitarist.

For a man celebrating his 70th birthday, Mayall looked to be in excellent health and shape considering his lifestyle, 40 years on the road. He plays almost any instrument equally well and showcased his skills on organ, guitar and harp. The man is a blues master.

I also enjoyed Slide trombonist, Chris Barber, who performed numerous tunes and solos during the concert. This is a bit unusual for this type of venue, but it worked for me. I thought it was cool.

The evening was a celebration which showcased some of the best musicians on the planet. Mayall in my opinion always steals the show as he has so much command being one of the best frontmen of all time. His dedication to his craft is apparent but one thing Mayall always does is makes it a collaborative effort. He doesn't hog the spotlight and genuinely appreciates his co-musicians. This evening was all about the blues and everybody got into it.

Mayall is still touring as I type this review and he is pushing 78-79 years of age I believe, and still blowing away the audiences. There will only be one John Mayall.

I just love this DVD, it is actually one of my favorites ( I do play it a lot ). I kind of hesitated before buying it. John Mayall at seventy, I just didn't know what to expect. I was never a big fan of his, I had the record Turning Point that I liked especially for the song Room to move. John Mayall is quite an excellent harmonica player a long with other musical instruments as this DVD will reveal. If you like the electric guitar you will not be disappointed. There is a lot of electric guitar some very nice picking by some of the best like Mick Taylor ( you might remember him with the Rolling Stones - you can see him in the DVD Ladies and Gentlemen from the Rolling Stones ), Eric Clapton and Buddy Whittington which almost steals the show in my opinion. The CD is an added bonus which offers only a couple of songs, although one that you don't get on the DVD "California". I believe that you can get the complete show on CD.

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.

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.......
