Rocking on the High Seas

"Short of being there,this film offers viewers an exceptional look at one of America's musical treasures and best kept secrets, Delbert Mclinton, who's been wowing audiences around the world with his own unique blend of blues,rock,country and blue eyed soul since the late fifties. Fifty years and three Grammys later, fronting the tightest band in the business in venues large and small, there is no doubt he leaves fans both exhilarated and exhausted, wanting more. I cannot strees enough, this movie is about the music,not the cruise. If you are looking for a travelouge,look elsewhere.If you are looking for three hours of some of the best musical performances available on land or sea from Delbert and his like minded musical cronies,all at the top of their game, buy this film.Producer/Director Jay Curlee's labor of love,expertly crafted visually,and,presented in Dolby 5.1 surround sound and DTS deserves to be played loud and often. Do yourself the favor. You won't be sorry."
Not as good as expected

"I have been a Delbert McClinton fan for over 25 years. Having seen him live twice and if not mistaken I have all of his CD's and early cassettes. I love his various stlyes of music, especially the way he intrepets the lyrics.
I thought the interviews on this DVD were great.
My complaint is that I didn't like the sound mix for most of the musical performances. I thought I was having trouble with my surround sound system until I put in another music DVD. During the Clay McClinton interview his voice was so low it could barely be heard. It's like no one did a final quality control on the sound mix prior to releasing this DVD.
I expected much better sound quality for this product."
