About the music... If you are not inspired by this music, you must be already dead. Each piece is unique. It has it's own musical style. Each has passion and energy. It is a mixure of jazz, new age, and classical. This CD has always been on my Top 10 list, and now I can add the DVD to that, as well. Highly Recommended!!
I'm also really enjoying the music. It is eclectic, international and covers a broad range of styles. It is something you can listen to over and over again.
The concert is extremely well produced with a cast of dozens, all kinds of instrumentalists and singers. Very impressive.
The added dimension is that each song is about a particular person who changed the world in some "innovative" way. The back stories are very interesting.
Most of the DVD's in my collection are movies and I find I don't tend to watch them more than once. With this kind of a concert video, I can enjoy it over and over again.
If the eclectic, rhythmic, jazz/rock fusion stylings of the duo are to your taste, this is a disc that you will undoubtedly want to add to your collection. This disc, video quality aside, is a shining example of DVD technology used to its fullest potential, from the menu design to the powerful soundtrack, and stands as a point of reference for all future programs of this nature.
In Dolby 5.1 surround (& yes, played LOUD), the sound quality is superb - crystal clear & very lush. As a matter of fact, except for the audience's very enthusiastic response, it sounds more like a fine studio recording than a live show. And while it's not a note for note replication of the classic Forever Changes album, it comes very, very close. Though "You Set The Scene" has always been my favorite song from the original album, I found "The Red Telephone" to be the most moving & spirited song on the DVD. It's remarkable that the tag lines - "They're locking him up today & throwing away the key, I wonder who it will be tomorrow, you or me?" are so chillingly resonant in light of the "Patriot" Act and the current anti-terrorist hysteria.
The visuals are fine - nothing flashy or especially innovative, just a document of the show done in a very straightforward way that complements the honesty of the music appropriately. As far as the bonus materials go, the extra tracks are mostly very good (though I found "7 & 7 is" to be a little too low energy, which is a shame for such a fierce, powerful song), the interview with Arthur (primarily about his youth & early days with the original Love lineup) provides some insights into a very unique & creative talent, & the tour documentary gives us a perspective from the other folks involved (the band, their manager, etc.). It would have been nice to have included some audience reaction too, but that's a very minor quibble.
Who would have thought that Arthur Lee could come back after more than 30 years, find the perfect band and treat his longtime fans to such an incredible recreation of his masterpiece? Forever Changes was one of the most beautiful, honest & creative works to come out of the psychedelic era and this DVD gives it fresh new life. A must-have for any fan & a great opportunity to discover a unique talent for those unfortunate enough to never have experienced Love before.
Arthurlly yours, A LOVE FAN FOREVER
The former RMM recording star (now signed with Sony Discos) is amazing as he captivates his audience in this special that was televised live on HBO in 2000. Singing some of his classics in Spanish and new hits in English, Marc truly is a glowing presence on stage as his fans, both male and female, are energized and moved by his gift of song.
This DVD captures the intensity that Marc Anthony can only provide onstage. Whether you're a fan or an avid listener to salsa music and/or Spanish ballads, "Marc Anthony - The Concert from Madison Square Garden" is a must see. Gifted, blessed, and talented are the words I can use to describe this artist and this performance.
Thank you so much for this. Keep up the Superb Work. We Love It!
Can't wait to get some more of them. For any other fans out there. This is what you call MUSIC!
Robben Ford is in top form on this April 7th, 1993 Germany performance, captured here in impeccable DVD quality. The fantastic trio of Robben on guitar and vocals (his vocals are NOT a weakness - as so many "critics" might mislead you; instead, it is strong, soulful, emotional...), Roscoe Beck TEARING IT UP on either his Fender 4-string, or his 6-string bass (on which he breaks a string during a solo!), and Tom Brechtlein grinning away as he masterfully backs up this tour de force on the drums.
This is the only complete live performance of Robben Ford available for sale on a video format, and luckily for us it is available on the DVD format with its sonic and visual superiority.
I promise that anyone who appreciates good guitar, and/or good blues will greatly enjoy this concert, as it showcases Robben Ford and The Blue Line at the pinnacle of its sound.
This concert oozes élan and consummate artistry on a level hard to imagine. Must be seen to be believed.
The selections presented in this concert include some of the Strauss family's best-known pieces along with some that you may not know. Still, no better orchestra to perform them than the Vienna Philharmonic. Their playing is spectacular, and as conductor, Carlos Kleiber enjoys one of his finest hours here (a feat he would later repeat in the 1992 concert.)
These New Year's Concerts performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra are works of art in themselves! Of course, there's no substitute for seeing one live in person, but sitting back and experiencing this DVD in your home theater comes very close!
I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who is either fond of the music of the Strauss family or of good classical music, period. Now, in closing, I have just one question: when will the rest of the New Year's Concerts be released and made available on DVD?
As for this DVD it is as good if not better, she is ten years older and her voice just gets better. Her versions of "I'm Your Girl" and If I Can Just Get Through The Night" are spine chilling she hits notes that only Phoebe can, if my time was now to shuffle off - I would go a happy man, they are that good.
She is amazing!! All fans must buy it, everyone else should buy it.. I await her new release "Natural Wonder" which is what she is to me and popular musics best kept secret- Experience Phoebe now..
1) I Wanna Dance With Somebody - The crowd is into it, Whitney is very cute in that yellow outfit, very fun performance.
2) Saving All My Love For You - Very slowed down and extended rendition, Whitney is flirting with the troops, great vocals.
3) How Will I Know - See 1)
4) Love Medley(Didn't We Almost Have It All/A House Is Not A Home/Where Do Broken Hearts Go) - Whitney comesback with a stunning red gown. This is where it kinda "starts" for me, the previous 3 were kinda cute, but now Whitney's voice starts soaring and she really impresses.
5) All The Man That I Need - WOW. Just WOW. In the final chorus, Whitney simply outclasses the original version. The crowd is going wild.
6) My Name Is Not Susan - She now switches to a green outfit. Fun performance
7) Anymore - GREAT. Very fun dancing and simply a very cute performance. It's amazing to see her hit those notes while dancing like crazy, very impressive.
8) A Song For You - At on point, she belts so hard and long, you'll be amazed at the power.
9) Revelation - At the end, everyone was going nuts. She really brought down the house, words cannot describe!
10) Who Do You Love - Fun performance, I really like the live arrangements, much better then on the Cd.
11) I'm Your Baby Tonight - Great performance
12) Greatest Love Of All - Perfect performance. She's now wearing a blue gown. There are so many funny moments in this performance, you'll love it. Let's say it envolves a little kid. Those 2 last notes, probably 15 seconds each.
Some of the dance numbers are a little outdated in terms of style because this was from 1991, but the VOICE is what matters. And the ballads are truly amazing, YOU GOT TO SEE All The Man That I Need.
Also, the dvd has great sound & picture quality. All in all, this is a MUST-HAVE for any Whitney fan or anyone who likes great singing.
1)Whitney Houston sings for the American troops coming back from the first war against Irak : this concert is produced "with the cooperation of the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense". I might be wrong but, Whitney Houston is the first Black singer to be hired to sing for the American troops.
Let me tell you that she has unanimous backing from all these KIDS!
2)The Director is David Mallet : he also directed some of Tina Turner's concerts : good "prises de vue" and so emotional...
3)Whitney Houston's performance in this concert is so excellent that you'll need to play it over and over again...
4)I like ALL the songs performed in this unforgettable concert but "All the Man that I Need","Greatest Love of All" & "A Song for You" are my favourite : Whitney is at her best !
"WELCOME HOME HEROES WITH WHITNEY HOUSTON", Live in Concert, is just a moment of pure emotion : she's talented, she's beautiful and above all, the soldiers seem so terribly relieved to be home.
THIS CONCERT IS ALSO A HISTORICAL MOMENT !
It will also probably make you think about what's happening NOW.
On to the actual concert: Bryn is simply at his best. I have seen him perform live three times and was impressed by his energy and ability to communicate with the audience. It is so amazing to see him perform some difficult pieces such as Wotan's Farewell and Falstaff's Honor monologue with such intensity and beautiful line. He sounds incredible and seems to keep getting better and better. The musical theater pieces for the second half of the program are well chosen and makes one wish he would take to Broadway in the near future. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone- from the casual opera fan to keen enthusiasts.
