Excerpt: This is probably my favorite concert blu-ray! I honestly don't understand the 3 1/2 star video review, because I think it looks great. He really didn't point out any problems, so I just don't get it. The DTS-MA sounds phenomenal. Very well balanced, and the kick drum is deep and punchy. There is another perfomance with the Uptown Playboys as a bonus which is really cool rock-a-billy. Awesome blu-ray all the way around!
Excerpt: I only have one Jeff Beck CD (Guitar Shop), but I really love his tone, and way of playing. The set list is pretty balanced and has a nice variety. It was a very pleasant surprise to see/hear him play my favorite Jeff Beck track (the last piece)! I honestly don't understand the high VQ scores, as it is nowhere near reference due to the issues mentioned below.
Excerpt: I am not that familiar with Jeff Beck's music. About the only work of his I knew before getting this disc was Freeway Jam. The reason I bought it was because of all the reviews raving about the sound quality. They were right. The level of musicianship for Beck and his band is incredible, and the audio on this disc fully does that high level justice. The sound is really, really good. If you like Jeff Beck, this disc is a no-brainer.
Excerpt: I had only heard Beck with the Yardbirds on a 'Very best' compilation which was ok. But I was not expecting the music and sound on Live at Ronnie Scotts. I've never heard better audio on a concert album of any format; vinyl, cd, sacd, dvd-audio/movie or blu-ray. Jeff Beck is a guitar master++. The band is very good too. My best buy ever?
Excerpt: I bought this on a blind buy today from seeing one of the screen shots. In that screen was a young girl. Her name is Tal Wilkenfeld. I looked her up and and was completely blown away. I had to have this from what I saw of talent. She is nothing short of amazing and is by far the best bass player going today. Am I ever glad I bought this Blu-ray. Ok on to the movie. This is one of the best concert videos I have seen.
Excerpt: Unreal! That's the only word I can come up with for Jeff Beck. No matter how many times I see him, or how hard I try to study what he's doing, I'm left scratching my head. How is it possible to do what he does, and make it look so easy. Believe me, as a guitar player myself, the truth is he's so good that in past centuries, they'd thought him some kind of witch or wizard, and would have sent him to the gallows.
