Fabulous Kim and Jim

"I just bought this DVD recently and I must confess was very sceptical before seeing it, based on what I think is a cheesy cover, and also some of the reviews saying the sound wasn't very good.
I'm delighted to say that I had no sound problems with my copy, and that I really enjoyed it. Good song selection, and it took me back to one of my favorite concerts. This concert was recorded in 1985 in England, and I saw them in '87 in Winnipeg, Mb. Canada.
If you are a fan of the Jimmie Vaughan era Thinderbirds, this is definelty something to check out. Kim and Jim at the top of thier game."
Greatly impressed....

"After just recently getting into the whole Fabulous Thunderbirds scene I decided to pick up this DVD along with their "Invitation Only" DVD. I absolutely love them both!

Although Invitation Only I'd say has slighly better video and audio (w/ DTS!!) this concert has Jimmy Vaughan (Stevie's brother) on lead guitar vs. Kid Ramos in Invitation Only. Both DVD's are totally rocking with outstanding performances. I recommend them both to any Fabulous Thunderbirds fan; or anyone who wants to hear one of the best blues bands available on DVD!"

"this was a great period in American music with both The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Stevie Ray Vaughan putting out heavy duty rock and blues recordings and touring non-stop.I saw SRV in 1983 when he was just getting national acclaim then saw The Fab T-birds with original bassist Keith Ferguson not long after that solely because I'd read that Jimmie Vaughan was Stevie's older brother.I'm so glad I read that article.The FabT's hadn't hit it big yet with Tuff Enuff and were playing stuff from their prior recordings only.What a vibe they created in the club that night.You couldn't hear shuffles,slow blues,or 50's rock inspired tunes played any better anywhere else on the planet...well,unless SRV and DT were playing somewhere the same night...but you get my point.
This DVD will put you right back into a time when Texas blues was on the pop charts and music still had soul.The groove these guys lay down from the 1st note is heavier than anything out there today.It's real for one thing,not pretend BS.I wish those days had had a longer run.When Stevie departed,he took a very large chunk of music with him besides his own.Texas blues and alot of the music hanging on SRV's coat-tails went by the wayside in the mainstream.This Fab T's concert still holds up,20 years after it was filmed.Why? Because electric blues and r&b flavored rock are timeless.The tunes here are infectious and most of all,fun to hear.You'll be yelling YEAH BABY! more than once as you watch this show.Pick it up while you can.One day it'll be OOP.
