"Marc Ribot is one of those chameleonic guitarists who can (and does) play with anyone, regardless of style... he always brings something unexpected to the table, and never disappoints. This DVD features footage of some great performances-- solo, with the Lounge Lizards, with his own groups, and great interviews with not only Ribot but some of his closest friends and associates. If you have any interest at all in his music you'll love this DVD, if not, you'll be introduced to one of the greats of modern guitar."

"Ribot is tight and right - a fine NYC player with gravitas, hooks, chops, and the chutzpah to pull off whatever he's got in his sights. The live bits on this DVD are great - lots of ebb and flow - he's confident and deserves to be.
When he speaks, it's a splash of cold water (in January, in NYC). A little too much bluster and light on substance. Not at first, but after awhile, his introspection is cloying. Still a fine release - the live stuff worth the $$$ alone.
