LMS dvd review

LMS dvd review

Postby flip54 » Sun Jul 08, 2007 11:57 am

Long running UK mag Country Music People has a fine LMS dvd review from the ever reliable Doug Macphearson, also has a colour ad for Austin dvd. Sorry if that has already been posted but I've been away in the sunshine of the fab Austrian lakes and mountains

Nice to see Austin dvd and cd in local HMV and indie shop, though much cheaper on line, how long can these shops last if they don't compete price wise?? Sad to see long est UK dealers Tonal,Swift and Red Lick hand in the towel, bought much vinyl and cd from them over the years,only Bim Bam left now it seems


ps hope one day Castle will do a JLL reissue set of some kind, their new Eddie Cochran Guitar Picker set of material licensed from Rockstar is state of the art, up there with BF I reckon

Last Man Standing is really a DVD of Jerry Lee in performance with a pile of guests. Yes, there's a CD of the hits but frankly, it's the footage of 'The Killer' that fans will cherish. Even then, it takes over half the disc to get a rather sombre Jerry Lee to loosen up and crack a smile. Tom Jones, Solomon Burke, Buddy Guy and Norah Jones can't do it. It takes John Fogerty singing Good Golly Miss Mollyin true Little Richard style to get Lewis in the mood and from there the performances seem to take off, with the highlight being Kid Rock on top of Jerry's flame painted piano dancing and singing along to Little Queenie. The band is stellar, too, featuring Jim Keltner on drums, Rick Rosas (Neil Young) on bass, Nils Lofgren (Springsteen) Jerry Lee's own Ken Lovelace and Ronnie Wood on guitar.

Me too! If anything I find the first half more interesting (& with better guests!).

Couldn't agree more about Tonal & Track - Let's hope Bob at Bim Bam can keep going.

I agree! Who will the next fool be? with solomon burke is the strongest act on this dvd! Without a doubt! It´s a shame though that it isn´t more songs from LMS on it.
