Band du Lac: Clapton, Ringo and More on A Concert By The Lake Blu Ray
Known as Band du Lac, this stunning supergroup amassed at the historic Wintershall Estate in Surrey, England to play a benefit concert for HASTE – the Heart and Stroke Trust Endeavour. With Procol Harum's Gary Brooker at the helm as musical director, guitarists Andy Fairweather Low and Mike Rutherford, keyboardist Paul Carrack, and drummer Henry Spinetti kept the crowd captivated through 23 beloved tracks, including "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" and a rousing rendition of "Tequila." This night was also chockfull of guest appearances, including Eric Clapton ("Lay Down Sally," "Willie & The Hand Jive," "Cocaine"), Ringo Starr ("Photograph," "With A Little Help From My Friends"), The Drifters ("Under The Boardwalk," "Stand By Me"), Roger Taylor ("I Want To Break Free") and Katie Melua ("The Closest Thing To Crazy"). Bonus interviews with all key performers are also included.
Originally released as Band du Lac: One Night Only Live via Eagle Rock, this night of musical magic is now presented as a dynamic high-def experience. This is just the kickoff to another great year of Blu-ray bliss. Look for Eagle Rock to release blu-ray DVDs of Black Sabbath, Michael Bolton, and the television series Blood Ties in 2010.
