Blues guitar legend, and one of Moore's idols, AlbertCollins made a guest performance at this show, joining Moore on"Too Tired", "Cold Cold Feeling", "Further On Up The Road", and the second encore "The Blues Is Alright". Their styles are very different, as Collins uses a cleaner tone, always capos the seventh fret, and picks with his fingers. Moore was definitely getting off jamming with one of his idols, and it was interesting to watch these two contrasting styles complement each other on these songs. The highlights ofthe 1990 performance were "Texas Strut" and "The Messiah Will Come Again". On "Texas Strut", Moore pays homage to some of Texas' legendary blues guitarists including Stevie Ray Vaughan and Billy Gibbons, as Airey follows his lead with some excellent Hammond organ playing. For the final encore of the night--he came out for three--Moore paid tribute to the late, great Roy Buchanan with a passionate and powerful version of his classic "TheMessiah Will Come Again". Moore made his guitar cry, scream, and sing the blues, on the way to making this great song his own. That performance ranks up in the top ten live guitar performances I have ever seen. Watch it and tell me I'm wrong.
Three bonus songs are included from Moore's performance at the 1997 Montreux Jazz Festival. This night Moore played his rock material instead of the blues. He opened the set with a smoking version of "Out In the Fields", which originally featured Thin Lizzy's Phil Lynott. He closed the show with "Parisienne Walkways" a hauntingly beautiful instrumental that just may be the best performance on this DVD. Unfortunately the bonus songs were only presented with a PCM stereo track, but it is a good one at that. The video was actually better, for the 1997 footage, since it was filmed in Hi-Def.
