The parade of splendid blues on DVD continues with the 2004 release of Blues Legends: Memphis Slim and Sonny Boy Williamson Live in Europe, a compendium of performances alone and together by the two American bluesmen from the mid-1960s. The 48-minute program, mostly recorded in Brussels before a serious bunch of black-clad hipsters, has lots in common with the excellent American Folk Blues Festival series. It’s nicely packaged, well annotated, presented with startlingly good audio-visual quality, and, most important, chock full of great performances (including two by Slim that were recorded on the AFBF tours but unreleased until now).
