Uli Jon Roth is one of the sacred monsters of the guitar. Well known for being one of the soloists of Scorpions at the beginning of the career of the German group, he proposes in this box containing a double CD and a DVD to revisit the Tokyo Tapes in concert in Japan.

What I enjoyed the most

  • The many pieces on the DVD
  • The quality of the images
  • The close-ups on Uli's guitar

What I enjoyed the least

  • Nothing really

Conclusion

I admit to know very badly the music of Uli Jon Roth, that is why this box fell in order to have an upgrade that was necessary. The band behind Uli consists of nothing less than 6 musicians including two other guitarists is very solid. The singer Nathan James delivers a hell of a performance with a voice that sticks perfectly to the repertoire without sinking into the insipid clone of Klaus Mein. There are great guitar moments in this set. In particular the sequences with 3 harmonized guitars are impeccably realized. The passage to the classical guitar Godin is also a good piece. Obviously Uli's guitar playing did not take a wrinkle. Until the next article, keep on playing the guitar! Pierre. [s2If !current_user_can(access_s2member_level0)]

Uli Jon Roth – Tokyo Tapes Revisited (2 CDs & DVD)

Tommy Emmanuel is an amazing Fingerpicking guitarist but he also plays very well the electric guitar who is a real phenomenon on stage. I had the opportunity to see him on stage at the New Morning in Paris (after we recorded an audio interview), he put out incredible show just him alone on stage with his guitar. So I was very curious to watch this "Music Gone Public" live DVD of him.

  • The many pieces on the DVD
  • The quality of the images
  • The sequence in between the live parts
  • The interesting bonus

What I enjoyed the least

  • Nothing really

Conclusion

If you have already seen Tommy Emmanuel on stage, you will love this DVD which will make you relive the intensity of its performances on stage. If you haven't seen him yet, after watching the DVD you will feel the urge to get a ticket next time the Australian guitar virtuoso is around your town. Until the next article, keep on playing the guitar! Pierre. [s2If !current_user_can(access_s2member_level0)]
