"I'm a huge Johnny Guitar Watson Fan, and have performed his music for the last 25 years on various gigs. I never got to see him live unfortunately and hoped this would capture some of what I heard on records. The Tempos are rediculously too fast, like some of the coked out versions of the 80's and 90's. Sometimes performers as they get older, think they have to speed everythig up to please younger audiences, but in the process they lose the funk.
A bit too jive chitlin' circuit slick for me. JGW is one of greatest blues guitar players of the last 60 years, and he only plays on one song on this DVD. We are grateful for European Television for getting some rare footage of the masters of the blues, something American Television never gave a shot at. I'm anxious to check out his Ohne filter performance, a show I performed on with Long John Baldry in the 90's, that really shows off what an artist is about."
