    I never stopped singing along!

    What an excellent concert! The music was great... and I knew the words to every song! The historical footage and photos were really interesting. It was transfixing... watched it straight through from beginning to end!

    Better with Age

    I began by watching the show just to hear one or two songs that I remembered. It totally transfixed me. I found the stories interesting and entertaining. I love the way Randy can weave humour and information into a story... I never realized where the inspiration for songs like Takin' Care of Business, American Women, Let it Ride and No Sugar came from... now I know.Hearing those BTO and Guess Who hits in an accoustic/intimate setting was wounderful. Randy's gutiar playing, excellent back up band and smooth audio mix make for an entertaing show. His cover of Lenny Kravitz's cover of 'American Women'is hilarious. Sharing lead vocals with his keyboard player made some of Randy's hits sound better than the originals.
