Long John Baldry

It Ain’t Easy – Live at Iowa State University DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I first heard of Long John Baldry because before becoming Elton John Reginald Dwight played keys in his band. So, I jumped at the chance to hear what Baldry sounded like with this DVD. This is a live concert from 1987 finds Baldry and the band tearing through a number of killer blues jams. This guy could really lay down the blues with the best of them. It’s a classic concert performance and a great video of it. This should please fans of the blues and Baldry in particular and serve as a great introduction to those (like myself) who have not heard him before. It’s just plain great.
