"This is my first review in 3 years!!(lazy). This DVD is incredible. It is not a stadium Live concert but it is neither a soft studio session. It is pretty much similar to nowadays MTV unplugged, but with all Cale's strenght, an excellent sound and very good quality filming. I can asure you that any JJ's fan will not be dissapointed.
Cool, smooth and buoyant...

"Recently retrieved, but captured in 1979, in the intimacy of the Paradise Studio, with Leon Russel, Christine Lakeland and others, this performance is obviously a must have. Pretty good sound and a lot of great songs, sometimes in jazz style sometimes more country. A pure delight for the aficionados of jj cale. And a brilliant example of the US culture that we love in France!
Surprisingly, I notice that this dvd is now available here and not yet in USA ! Be patient !"

"This is it! Finally-they got it right.An actual session of J.J. Cale on "DVD"!I am one of the true fans who has listened to him for a long time.Enjoyed him for a long time.Other than getting lucky enough to be at one of his rare shows some 13 years ago,I ,as well as many,had never seen him.Finally we can on an excellent production from features not only the "guitar man",but shot many scenes where you actually can watch him play.Man he can play!Examples of his talents are featured extremely well on "Ten Easy Lessons","After Midnight",Boiling Pot","Crazy Mama","Going Down" and all the "T-Bone Shuffles".However,the one tune that sticks out is the rendition of "Fate of a Fool" from the album "5".I could be wrong but I felt this tune was written as a parallel of his life."Seeing" him perform this all but proves my assumption correct.The band that accompanies him is tight.Leon Russell is super and makes his presence known on keyboards/vocals and showmanship.Do not look for fireballs,smoke machines,or long drum solos.This is J.J. Cale and he just plays.Man can he play!"
JJ Cale in Session with Leon Russell

"A must for any fan of JJ Cale. Although this session is almost 30 years old, there is no mistaking the laid back style of the man. It is not hard to see where other talented guitarists such as Clapton and Mark Knopfler drew their inspiration from.

The sound may not be as good as some of today's DTS tracks, but the session itself is as cool as it gets.

Well worth the money."
