Guitar Legends – The Ultimate Anthology
Now here is a DVD you absolutely want. For anyone who enjoys guitar or Classic Rock here is a great item. Some of the greatest guitarists performing with their original bands. All in concert and all incredible!
A couple of these were filmed in the early 90s and I suspect Hackett’s piece was filmed in the late 70s or early 80s. The rest is from the early 70s.
Take a look at the lineup:
- Paul Kossoff with Free Alright Now
- Andy Powell with Wishbone Ash Phoenix
- Robin Trower Night of the Guitars
- Ritchie Blackmore with Deep Purple Improvisation
- Rory Gallagher Could Have Had Religion
- John Etheridge with Soft Machine Tale of Taliesin
- Jan Akkermann with Focus Hocus Pocus (Hocus Pocus by Focus; bet you never forget that one!)
- Vernon Reed/Jack Bruce Sunshine of your Love
- Steve Hackett Clocks
- Steve Howe The Clap
- Mick Box with Uriah Heep The Magician’s Birthday
- Tony Iommi with Black Sabbath Headless Cross
Convinced? You should be. Personally, I think the DVD is worth getting if only for Hocus Pocus by Focus (I never tire of saying that). All performances, though, are outstanding.
As most of these performances date back to the early 70’s, don’t expect state-of-the-art images, but the quality is still pretty high and the sound is DTS.
This should be in everybody’s library.
