After witnessing the London blues explosion in the 60s, Tom Huissen quickly returned to his native Holland to form the band that this DVD now celebrates.
Here accompanied by a band of close musical friends, this release is more likely to be remembered for its musical offerings than the visuals. While it doesn’t quite have the glitz and glamour of a residency at the 100 Club, the band, with keyboardist/vocalist Erwin Aubroeck a standout performer here, put the focus on the music that originally inspired them.
From the smooth harmonies of Cream’s White Room, with warm guitars brightening the mix, to a sassy Black Magic Woman, they’ve drawn up a fine setlist which is executed lovingly — making this swankily packaged DVD worth a buy.
Not every band gets to celebrate their 40th anniversary — and John The Revelator deserve the backslaps./o:p
