Fats Domino Live

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The DVD captures a single concert and Fats is on top form, he really is a living legend. The concert's location is not mentioned and there's no date, but it appears to have been filmed in the mid-80's/early-90's. It's about 49 minutes long, and covers seventeen tracks.
The only problem is with the quality of the DVD - it's really just a transfer of an old VHS videotape. Having said that, the audio is good, with a nice balance between Fats' voice and the music.
The video also (very) occasionally cuts from the live performance to a montage of pictures of Fats throughout the years, which is a bit distracting, as it's sometimes mid-way through a song, but as the audio keeps playing, it's not too enjoyment-destroying.
There are also four bonus tracks which sees Fats share the stage with Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis and Ronnie Wood.
So, in summary, an OK DVD of a great performance by a living legend. Any fan of Fats Domnio will love it, but just be prepared for a substandard DVD.
