BLUES DVD of the Highest Quality
Gary Monti | Providence, RI | 04/27/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Forget the title and cover - if you are a fan of the Blues you will love this DVD. Bringing together the insights of musicians and historians (with Delta State Professor Dr. Luther Brown, most notably) we have a chance to follow the Blues lineage up to Led Zeppelin. The first 48min. are devoted to founders of American Blues, starting with Charlie Patton. Tremendous insight and commentary from knowledgeable authors and scholars; all interspersed with great music. Then we move to Sun Studios with emphasis on Elvis. After that there are snapshots of Jimmy Page and his occult interests but this comes across as mostly filler as it reflects some of his musical style for a short period. The true inspiration is found in the musician's that caught the attention of Plant and Page in their teens.

In part this is somewhat ironic as we Blues fans still feel the sting of the poor recognition offered to Howlin' Wolf, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson, Bukka White and others that Zeppelin freely borrowed from. None the less the truth of this DVD provides some atonement.
