Don Odell's
"LEGENDS" TV Show!

This 75-minute DVD features the Chris Duarte Group appearing on Don Odell's "Legends" TV show in Palmer, Massachusetts, September 7, 2010. The show was professionally shot with three hi-def cameras and a soundboard feed in front of a studio audience of 30 lucky fans. Art Tipaldi, editor of "Blues Revue" magazine, introduced the band. They played an energetic 70-minute set featuring two songs from the new album "Infinite Energy" plus several CDG classics. Interspersed between cuts are interview clips with Chris. It's a cool performance and also features Chris Duarte's 1963 Fender Stratocaster for the first half of the show! Chris also added a red knucklehead to his stack for that extra "crunch" in his tone. The dvd is the complete TV broadcast of the "Legends" episode and features "101", "Letter To My Girlfriend", "Big-Legged Woman", "The Best That I Can Do", "Scrawl", "Satisfy", "Sundown Blues", "Purple Gloaming", "One More Cup Of Coffee", "My Way Down", and "Let's Have A Party". It is beautifully photographed and the detail is amazing, some of the best footage of the band ever shot. Don Odell has graciously allowed me to make a limited run of this show available to help raise money for this website. Please note that these dvds were copied at home on a commercial duplicator and are NOT factory pressed, but the quality and sound on them is excellent throughout.
