Dave, nice find! That was really something, I wish they had a music DVD out, I was as compelled watching them as listening to them.

Yeah, I have to say that while the music is nice, I think I'd be much more inclined to give it repeat plays if it was a DVD, or better yet, an HD DVD. Very impressive to see.

Well, I ordered their CD with the bonus DVD. I'm hoping the live performances on the DVD are as cool to watch. Only $10, though!

I just watched some of the DVD. While the CD is very good quality (and certainly worth the $10 on its own)- the DVD is not that great. The video is only standard film, and the cuts are too fast to really see their playing which is what it most intersting. I'm sure it was done on a low budget, but its certainly fine as a bonus. Hopefully with this albums success, there will be better video of their performances from here.

The DVD includes an interview segment that is about 22 minutes and tells their story. Just a caution on some of the language here; 3 live performances- Stairway to Heaven had the best audio 5.1 mix, the other 2 tracks weren't recorded/mastered as well; A still photo gallery; and a video tutorial of their guitar playing style. I didn't have time to watch much of the tutorial, but it did look pretty interesting.

I'm still loving the music on the CD- it's excellent and the album was produced very well.

No one likes the original acoustic guitar speed freaks?

I should warn people, fwi, that the particular disc I linked to is short.... 32 mins. if I remember right. I don't rate albums/discs by their length, but since I somewhat endorsed it, I should mention it's shortish "stature".

If you like their music, though, you may want to check out "Friday Night in San Fancisco" in redbook or in SACD. It's their best-known release.

Another option is The Guitar Trio.

I got it today, and I really do like it. It's a lot of fun. I liked the DVD, too. They seem like well-grounded, cool people, and I like their faces when they're playing. So yeah, I'm happy with the purchase!

To chime in--I listened to it over the weekend and absolutely loved it! Great recommendation. Haven't seen the DVD yet, though I am looking forward to it.

Well-recorded and well-played.
