Buddy Guy - The No Name Compilation
Various unrelated dates and venues - Zetti DVD-036 - DVD-R1
This unnnamed DVD compilation holds random clips from different eras, both in
excellent quality. What do they have in common, other than that they both have performances by
Buddy Guy? Does Eric Clapton play on both? Hmmm ... no. (BG does refer to EC during tbe 1999
performance but that is all). Perhaps both these clips just happened to be taking up space on
someone's hard drive at the same time? Only time will tell.
Filmed at Ronnie Scott's club in London, the 1987 footage is the best we have
ever encountered of this powerful broadcast, apparently from a VHS master. The footage from the
Marciac Jazz Festival is a transfer from the original
PAL Format DVD recording, and, like the Ronnie Scott's
footage, the transfer is flawless.
This is a fantastic DVD that any Eric Clapton or Buddy Guy fan would love to watch - if only they could find it! But alas, this one will be impossible to locate, since we won't ever know if it is filed under "Buddy Guy" or "Eric Clapton", or whether it is to be stored with the 1987 discs or the 1999 discs!
