'Guitar Legends' was a concert held over five nights, from 15th to 19th October 1991 in Seville, Spain, to publicise the Expo '92 event the following year. This video was transfered from my old VHS (recorded from British TV in 1991). The concert was a real inspiration to me when I was younger - the first time I'd seen and heard many of these great bluesmen.
I'm dedicating this upload to Albert Collins and Bo Diddley, both legendary and influential blues musicians and larger-than-life entertainers who gave an amazing performance at this concert. They are sadly no longer with us, but never to be forgotten! In this concert, Bo Diddley's tone and percussive/rhythmic playing are totally infectious (52:23), and Albert Collins' playing on Robert Cray's "The Dream" (18:13) is beautifully tasteful and will make all the hairs on your body stand on end.
But then all of the musicians' performances in this video are excellent.
The concert is quite hard to find now, and I thought it should be shared with everybody. I hope you enjoy it :-)
