Johnny Guitar Watson

Live in Concert DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I had heard of Johnny Guitar Watson, but as a blues artist. Well, as this DVD attests that was only part of the picture. When the blues fell out of fashion Watson reinvented himself as a funkster. This concert is a smoking funk show that’s captured in solid video and audio quality. If all you got was this 1993 concert the DVD would be worth having. The truth is, though, this is one set where the bonuses are definitely worth having, too. We get bonus concert footage, interviews and much more. It really gives an intriguing look into this artist. I like this DVD a lot and can’t imagine much that they could have done to make it better. If you were a fan of Watson’s blues era this would be a great way to catch up with what he did in the final years of his career. If you are a fan of funk, then this is a “must have” anyway.
