Effort and entertainment are not mutually exclusive. Garland Jeffreys provides the best example of this with the DVD "Hail Hail Rock'n'Roll Live," which was recorded during a European tour in 1992. The American singer is brilliant as a versatile and visually adaptable entertainer. In his songwriting he poses critical questions and clearly distances himself from common prejudices and racial discrimination. His highly individual mixture of rock, soul, reggae and pop brought Garland Jeffreys thunderous applause from the audience.
