    And I'm killing myself that I was so anxious to got the whole series at once that I called and instead of getting one volume at a time, I bought the while thing and I paid a heck of a lot more than that! Initially it was one of those subscription deals where you got one a month. $50 for the whole thing, if you love music, is a steal for all those performances imo.

    What a great, great guitar performance. And a great performance from the band overall. I get a rush watching it all these years later. You can even see Kevin Cronin smiling at what Gary is doing. That is the excitement that the show brought to me as a kid.

    Nobody can play like Gary does, but for the sake of a closeup view, here is a fine guitarist showing you some of Gary's magic:

    They now have a Best Offer button, and I offered $35.00 all in, and they accepted. :bdance:

    That was when the talent outweighed the special effects. My opinion.

    What company do you think should release Don Kirshner's Rock Concert on Dvd whenever it comes out?Maybe Eagle Rock Entertainment?

    I really don't know which company should release it; but since I doubt it will ever come out, I don't think we have to fret over the issue. If I have to eat this post one day, I will gladly do it . . . hook, line, and sinker.

    I think the biggest hold up is music rights clearances which is why I think the DKRC Dvd box set isn't released yet.It might be another decade when it does come out but I like to be proven wrong.

    Always watched that and Don Kirshner's show. Thing with Midnight Special sometimes the bands performed "live".

    I put together the complete 20 cd set new for 115 bucks, pretty reasonable considering used sets are going for more on Ebay.

    Wow. Just a blistering performance as I rewatch this video. Too bad the camera person fixated on zoomed in shots on Kevin's face while he was singing. I wonder why he didn't zoom in CLOSER!!

    On Gary: here is an instructional video of his lead playing in Roll with the Changes. While there is only one Gary, who plays difficult leads effortlessly, this guitarist does an exceptional job and, more importantly, shows some of the skill and finesse required to play these lead lines. His name is Tom, I have corresponded with him, and he is a really nice guy and an fine player in his own right. For illustrative purposes only:
