WIZZ:
Here's some of Maggie Holland's review from Folk Roots Magazine:

The format is simple - Wizz sits on a chair behind a couple of mikes and runs through about 20 songs from his humungous repertoire, with Newman chatting with him in between, asking questions about his influences and technique and generally egging him on. Richard comes over like a well-informed fan and the whole thing has a very relaxed and unpretentious air. Well it would be difficult to get 'Wizz Jones' and 'pretentious' into the same review! It's the next best thing to having Wizz sitting in your living room running through a few numbers. I suppose its called a seminar because you can watch his guitar playing close up over and over, with that powerful, rock-steady right hand; but happily I reckon he's genuinely inimitable.

If you've read this far - sorry to say this video is no longer available (apart from the odd bootleg knocking around). However those nice people at Sound Techniques have asked me to make a new DVD in 2005.
