This is the only disc so far that I pre-ordered, and I was thrilled when it arrived.

As I said in a thread several weeks back, this is in my opinion the best musical performance available on Blu-ray today. It's priceless.

Nobody plays like Jeff Beck. His riffs are not always perfect, but he's always so "on the edge " playing flat-out impossible stuff that slight imperfections are integral to his art. He often plays quarter tones, adding an Oriental feel to the music, but that again sounds sligtly out of tune to the untrained ear, but in fact is exactly in tune if you get where he's going with it. Amazing stuff.

I imagine musicians in the future trying to do a "tribute album" to Beck, and the greatest tribute will be that it won't sound anything like him.

Just watched this and thought the audio was very good and video was just average for a BR concert.

The show itself was a bit flat IMHO.....I can certainly appreciate the talent on stage, but the music just did not speak to me for whatever reason.....Jeff Beck just did not do much for me as a guitarist. Oh well still a great audio experience, the bass player was cute (how old is this girl?) and the bonus set was fun.
