Jon Lord is truly the master of the Hammond!
Richard C. Woodhouse | Bradford, PA USA | 10/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Man was I blown away by this DVD. Just fantastic! Jon Lord, famous of the legendary Rock Group Deep Purple, goes back to some of his early roots, in this very intimate setting at a club in Australia. He got together with a very good Blues band down there called the Hoochie Coochie Men, and boy is it good Blues Rock ear/eye candy. Lord shows just how good he is on Organ. Some of the solos are just amazing, not surprising, when you consider that he held his own with Ritchie Blackmore for years in deep purple, not to mention Steve Morse as well. Jon also has some amusing little stories, in between songs too. Do yourself a favor and buy this DVD, you won't be sorry that you did."
Oh my Lord!

"This DVD/CD is amazing. Jon Lord has always been one of the best rock keyboards players in my opinion. Up there with Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Ken Hensley, Tony Banks and many more to name. I've seen him with the great Deep Purple many times, in concerts and/or DVDs but these performance is his best ever on keyboards. Playing the blues, a music style dominated by guitars, the way is meant to be. On top of that, he is back with a first class hard rock blues band. Compared to blues bands or musicians like Tinsley Ellis, Walter Trout, John Mayall and many more, this Hoochie Coochie Men is up there with these bands. This DVD blow me away. Within the 12 great songs played here is very important to mention "You Need Love" (Led Zeppelin Whole Lotta Love) and the Deep Purple song "When A Blindman Cry" from which even Ian Gillan will be proud and and he will cry when he listens to the way this song is played and sung. There are not enough words to say how good this DVD is. Thanks Lord! and the Hoochie Coochie Men"
The Best Blues DVD you'll find so far

"I can't find words enough to praise this album. This disc should become the standard against which all Blues DVDs ought to stand up to, it's almost perfect.

John Lord needs no introduction, after all he is why you're reading this. But the band and the amazing blend between them make this disc stand out way over your average blues recording.

Don't expect much in term of visual production, this is a live shot taken in 2003 at a Sidney blues joint called "The Basement". But the recording is flawless and the music, oh, the music. Don't worry about the sound, it's as good as you'll ever get. The DVD is about over 120 minutes of the best classic Blues you can find anywhere. Plus you'll be blown to pieces with electric blues band arrangements for tunes the likes of Cream's 'Strange Brew', Foghat 'I just Want to Make Love to You' and a personal John Lord version of Booker T. & the MG's 'Green Onions' (!!!)

This DVD has 'MUST HAVE - MUST HAVE ' writen all over it. Don't miss it for the world."

"Folks all I can say is if you don't have this DVD, and you're an admirer of electric blues, as well as a fan of Jon Lord, you're doing yourself a gross injustice. BUY THIS DVD. You won't be disappointed. Jon Lord is such a humble human being, and seems to be so grateful with the life he's lived. And oh by the way he plays a wicked Hammond B3. And the Hoochie Coochie Men are pure traditionalists. BUY THIS DVD. Enough said."
