Great contemporary rockin blues...
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I had the pleasure to see the The Thunderbirds while visiting some friends in Austin in the early eighties. On a biz trip to Providence, RI I saw in an add in the paper that they would be playing a RI beach club that weekend. I extended my stay and it was well worth it. This is a different lineup, but Kim Wilson is is as good as it gets. The video was rather clean in a widescreen format and the Dolby 5.1 and DTS soundtracks were excellent. I do wish whoever it is that is directing/editing would keep the cameras off the crowd and on the performers. No kudos for director of the year. It is totally unneccessary and uncalled for - just the performers and the music please..."
Cool Performance and Great Bonus Guitar Lesson

"This DVD has a full concert performance that's very good. It's a small venue with a real family feel. Like they invited friends to see the taping of the DVD. The singer is original, but I think all the other guys are new. They are all excellent players and fit the style of the Fabulous Thunderbirds perfectly. They have a horn section, backup singers, and a great piano player. The guitarist, Kid Ramos, is a good player and what's also cool about this DVD is that he gives lessons on two songs in the Bonus features with 5 camera angels. If you have a bit of experience, it'll be pretty easy to pick up these songs. Very cool feature for guitarists. I wish more DVD's had this."
