If you like Jeff Beck or guitar rich instrumentals you’ll love this CD. For me this was enjoyable to watch though tedious at times. To sit thru a concert of rock fusion without vocals for the first ten songs would make for a long evening. I was enthralled and drawn in by Jeff’s unique style of playing his Fender Strat in the beginning, but a little goes a long way. I enjoyed the first couple songs and the Beatles cover A Day In The Life. Seeing a guitar virtuoso tap and bend the strings is impressive, though for me the highlights were the Clapton songs and the Joss Stone song. The viewer does get several opportunities to see multiple drum solos, bass playing and Jason playing keyboard, I enjoyed that, I also enjoyed the playfulness of Jeff and Tal. So, if you like screaming guitar instrumentals this would be a 5 on the STLBluesometer, remember though it’s a Jeff Beck DVD, not the Yardbirds.

Peace and Love
