AVI] "Days Gone By" (10.8MB)

The Rock'n'Roll Video of the Decade (no kidding, that's what it says on the cover!), Ronnie Hawkins' 60th birthday concert includes performance by Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Lawrence Gowan, and the Band. 19 songs, eighteen performed live at Toronto's Massey Auditorium sometime in the past year. Distributed in the US by Quality Records, Sherman Oaks, CA (Quality Video - "All New Digital Recording"). I got it at Suncoast Video - well worth the 15 bucks. The video of "Days Gone By" is sentimental, nostalgic, and a little maudlin (But still OK). The concert performances rock. Hawkins goads on Jeff Healey (verbally) to greater and greater heights of guitar soloing (ain't that a revelation) and states "If I ruled the world, this is the band I would pick." Hard to argue when that band includes "a Hawk, a Killer, and a King of Rockabilly" (not to leave out their inheritors and torchbearers who play with them).
