We are very proud to announce that our DVD-Edition "Legends of the famous Lippmann+Rau Festivals" received the German Critics Award in the category "DVD-Video-Productions". Here are some statements from the media about the three-piece DVD-edition:
The quality of the restoration is faultless, crisp monochrome images allowing every detail to shine. Each DVD is presented in a fold-out package with an accompanying integral 52-page booklet, offering insightful notes supported by vintage graphics and full details of every performance. The DVDs are very navigable, especially from a desktop hard drive, are currently offered for about 25 pounds each, and are worth every last pfennig.
Dans l'ensemble, images et son sont très honorables. Il sera difficile aux amateurs de blues de se passer de ce formidable volume 3. Mais le volume 2 séduira aussi ceux quiont des gouts plus éclectiques.
A collection of DVDs under the banner of Legends of the famous ‘Lippman + Rau Festivals’ may not ring any bells for the casual country music fan, but for those with a eye to the historic, a rough gem awaits!
Cowboys in Cyberspace / Australia
An excellent DVD with crisp images and fine camera work... The DVD is beautifully presented, with a 53 page booklet. Sound and picture quality are excellent, and a chapter listing allows access to any chosen track. All that, and Little Walter too. Simply essential.
Juke Blues Magazine
All three full-length programs are indispensable — and extensive, lavishly illustrated liner notes make the set even more alluring. Pick it up, sit back, and revel in ultra-rare footage guaranteed to blow your mind.
This is not just an historic piece of film documentation; it's a great two and a half hours of your favourite music played by some legendary artists. I loved it and you will too!
All in all, this set shows the range of talent that could be assembled when blues giants still walked the earth.
Cela dit, quant on voit ces images, qu'on se plonge dans le son des années d'or de ce blues joué par les plus grands et qu'on découvre ce nouveau livret réalisé avec moins autant d'application, de belles photos et de passion que les précedents, on doit avant tout se réjouir que cela existe, tout simplement.
Un trittico affascinante.
