This three DVD set features a wide range of archival footage, from the 1960s to the present day, of performances by the pre-eminent names in steel-string fingerstyle guitar.
Beginning with Peter Finger’s breathtaking A Trip Through The Pyrenees, the collection boasts some real gems: a rare late 1960s clip of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady – a.k.a. Hot Tuna doing Hesitation Blues, Bert Jansch delivering a soulful version of One For Jo, John Fahey crooning while plucking a Gibson L-00 on a plaintive Poor Boy and Adrian Legg at his peg twisting best on Midwest Sunday… It’s a wonder seeing these greats do what they do up close without having to focus on instructional asides, and without getting a lot of smoke in your face!
