Dickey Betts & Great Southern

30 Years Of Southern Rock DVD

Review by Gary Hill

OK, before I start this review, a word about the packaging. The packing here is nice, but (and I don’t know if it’s just my copy or all of them – so be forewarned) the first CD on my set was so firmly secured that I eventually had to take out a screw driver and break the packaging. It was the only way to get the disc off without risking breaking it. As I said, it might have just been the one I got, but in case it wasn’t, be warned that getting disc one out might be an adventure.

 Beyond that problem, though, you just can’t get much better than this. Dickey Betts and company deliver some smoking southern fried blues rock performances and you get not just one, but two full concerts here. The first one is from 1978 and the second is thirty years later. Talk about a career spanning set. If you are a fan of southern rock, or just plain rock in general, this is without question a “must have” release. Get it now!
