"This is a DOCUMENTARY on John .. NOT a Concert . It gives you an insight into what makes him tick ..and how he maintained over the years . It uses footage from an earlier black and white "rockumentary"(included in full on this disc ) filmed by the same guy back in what .. 69? the Turning Point era .. . It is put together tremendously well ,The new footage , blended with the old .. and I highly recommend this DVD to any British Blues Fan who wants to get a more intimate look at Mayall .It is one of my most played music DVD's, and I have a LOT!"

"I have been a Mayall fan for 35 years. Don't waste your money on this one. Buy the 70th birthday concert DVD instead.
Not much about the Turning Point as such. If you expect some detailed information on this classic album then you will be disappointed.
The other irritation is the repetition of footage between the two features on this DVD.
I'll sell my copy on ebay."
