CD Reviews

All about the sound
P. Knedler | 08/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have the DVD of this and it is one of the greatest DVDs ever. I like the CD but the sound quality on some tracks is not what I expected. Some tracks are better than others, the stuff from '79 sounds great. I suppose Irish Tour, Stagestruck, and Live in Europe have spoiled me. It is a must have though just because its Rory."
A refreshing dose of Rory blues
Jovian Laertides | Athens, Attiki Greece | 01/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The man had all that is good and admirable about rock music. Honesty, real passion, musicianship, a true love affair for the music and the instrument, qualities that are practically lost today in a time when "Best Of 2006" lists are filled with people that no-one will remember by the time of the "Best Of 2007" lists. And this really shows all over this set of Rory's live recordings at the Montreux festival over the years. It's incredible that there is not one filler in this compilation that reminds us what a huge guitar-god Rory could be if he was a bit more "marketing oriented". A must have and not only for Rory completists."
Sadly missed

"I agree with the others - not as enjoyable as the DVD but this is Rory on all cylinders. The abuse, by the way, was liver trouble, and he died of an infection after a transplant.

You have to buy this. Other treats that I have reviewed are Montreux DVD, Rory Live (Rockpalast) DVD, Taste Live at the Isle of Wight CD (Johnny Winter didn't even come near and I remeber everybody saying he blew Jimi "tuning problems" Hendrix off the stage (as did Procol Harum with Robin Trower). Legend has now submerged what really happened.....) and the first album, Taste CD. I will review On the Boards, Taste's second album, shortly: I have just bought it for the third time in 37 years and I am staggered at how mature and clever Rory is on this fabulous collection. What's going On? has a solo that will blister your paintwork, and his saxophone on On The Boards is a revelation. 21 he was. Buy all of these or The Great God Zorg will make you listen to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai for the next 1,000 years. You have been warned."
