Robben Ford & The Blue Line

Robben Ford & The Blue Line - In San Francisco - 1995 - Jazz Door

Robben Ford has been one of the premier blues/jazz-fusion guitarists for nearly forty years now. Robben emerged from the Bay Area scene in the early 70's, and went on to record and tour with acts like the Yellowjackets, Tom Scott & the LA Express, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Greg Allman, and his own band The Blue Line. Those familiar with Robben's playing will be aware of his great vocals, searing tone, and stellar chops all of which are showcased on this album. Robben and bassist Roscoe Beck and drummer Tom Brechtlein tear through great blues rockers like "You Cut Me to the Bone", "Talk To Your Daughter", "Worried Life Blues" and "Tell Me I'm Your Man". "The Brother" and "Step On It" are terrific Ford instrumentals full of Robben's distinctive stinging guitar solos. A great live album and HR by A.O.O.F.C. N.B: The album here is entitled "Robben Ford & The Blue Line In San Francisco" and is a legit release, but the tracks sound very similar to tracks recorded on April 7, 1993 for the German TV program Ohne Filter, available on DVD. Can anybody clarify this? [Tracks @ 192-320 Kbps: File size = 114 Mb]

Thanks for this disc, I Have the live DVD Ohne Filter & it's a great listen. Sorry I haven't sent any messages lately as I've been in hospital for the last couple of weeks. A pretty big operation on my back. Long slow recovery. So a belated Merry Xmas to you & your family. The music will help me recover quickly..........

The only difference I can see is track 9 Help the Poor is not on the DVD Ohne Filter as I have the DVD.
The CD must be the same tour as the DVD.
Thanks for making this available, I always wanted to convert the dvd to MP3 to listen in my car.
