Great Tribute
23 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's safe to say music legend Les Paul, if he was alive to hear this concert, would be driven to tears. It is an absolutely wonderful and superb tribute to the man who "invented the electric guitar." Also, he and Mary Ford combined for some ground-breaking vocals back in the 1950s.

Today's guitarists, particularly the British, seem to revere the American pioneers in guitar and blues and what better guitarist to pay tribute than Jeff Beck. Also, as it turns out, what better singer to honor Mary Ford than Imelda May? Imelda practically steals the show here with some incredible vocals and great theatrical presence. Her husband, rockabilly man Darrel Higham, also contributes in this concert with stuff that would make the '50s boppers proud. Beck, a big fan of Gene Vincent, pays homage to him, too, starting with his blue cap and pants!

So, if you want an evening of great instrumentation, vocals and a fun mix of re-done oldies, this is a fantastic DVD to own.
