Format: DVD
Plenty of pop music's finest appear and perform here to pay tribute to Arista Records' founder and uncanny finder-of-hit-singles Clive Davis. This tribute was originally broadcast on NBC in 2000.
This DVD includes excellent solo performances by Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, Toni Braxton, and Patti Smith, as well as hits medleys by Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin (via satellite), and Whitney Houston. Whitney was particularly spectacular here. The show opened with Santana, who was red-hot as of 2000 with #1 hits "Smooth" and "Maria Maria." He performed both, the former without Rob Thomas but the latter with The Product G&B.
Mr. Santana exemplifies both of Clive Davis' major achievements in pop and rock history. At Arista, he brilliantly resurrected the careers of several artists who had slipped from pop prominence. Santana had not made the singles chart since 1985; other stars enjoying comebacks at Arista included Dionne Warwick and Franklin. At Columbia in the late sixties, he was responsible (all or in part) for bringing Santana, as well as Janis Joplin, Sly and The Family Stone, and Earth, Wind & Fire to the label. This helped free the label from Mitch Miller's rock-loathing stranglehold, a process begun by John Hammond with Bob Dylan's signing years before.
This show exclusively featured live performances from acts still signed to Arista at showtime. That means, disappointingly, that such former Arista heavyweights as the Bay City Rollers, Air Supply, Melissa Manchester, underrated goddess Lisa Stansfield, the Thompson Twins, Ray Parker, Jr., and Eric Carmen are relegated to taped snippets of old videos of some of their hits. (These are all presented as "#1 Hits" even though many of them fell somewhat short of the top of any actual charts. That's showbiz, kids.

Format: DVD
I was lucky to find and get this item. This includes great performances by such great "Arista" artists as Santana, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Puff Daddy, Toni Braxton, etc. I did enjoy their live shows performing their #1 hit songs including Maria Maria/Smooth(Santana), I'll be missing you(Puff Daddy) and For You I WIll(Monica). It also was sweet to see Barry Manilow and Dionne Warwick singing. Mr. Manilow in particular was outstanding here. It brought me back to 70's and 80's with good memories.
Between songs there were some footages about Arista hit songs during last 25years. I could see some of my favorite artists such as Air Supply and Eric Carmen. As I was so glad to see them, I thought their performances in full length should had been contained in this DVD.
The picture and sound quality is great. The special features including extra live tracks are enjoyable. If you like to see live shows especially by Arista artists, you will enjoy this... always!

Format: DVD
This is the DVD release of the TV broadcast from May 2000. It collects a wide assortment of Arista stars past and present including Santana, Witney Huston, Dion Warwick, Barry Manilow, Air Supply, and Sarah McLachlan. McLachlan's haunting rendition of "Angel" was a particular high point, as was Manilow's all-too-brief medley of songs. The only complaint I have about this disc is the complete lack of extras. It appears that in the rush to get this released immediately after broadcast, someone forgot to take advantage of the DVD format and provide us with backstage footage, outtakes, extended performances, etc. Are we looking toward a Special Edition release any time soon? Probably not, so take advantage of what they have to offer here.

Being quite possibly the biggest Whitney Houston fan in the world, this was the last DVD standing between me and the completion of my collection. I wish I would've purchased this DVD sooner. The Whitney performances are absolutely amazing. She proves on this night why she is the greatest voice of all time. Her stage presence is magical, her vocals flawless, and her beauty radiates from within. She revitalizes old favorites like I Wanna Dance With Somebody and How Will I Know with new beats and arrangements. She takes I Believe In You & Me and I Will Always Love You to new heights. It's amazing.
While I bought this DVD with Whitney in mind... the whole concert is excellent. Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Sarah McLachlan, Puff Daddy, Toni Braxton, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Santana, and Kenny G shine on this DVD. Also being a fan of concerts on DVD, it is rare to find one this entertaining, and in which the artists sound so good. It just goes to prove that Arista's artists are truly talented. This is a must have if you enjoy good music. You won't be disappointed!

For all of those people who think that whitney lost her magic, they need to see this performance from 2000 (at the height of when she was supposedly in very bad shape). this DVD is excellent. the highlights are annie lenox singing why (she nails it like ive never seen), deborah cox singing nobody's supposed to be here (not televised), and the ultimate whitney houston performance.
Whitney starts off by singing the best versions of i wanna dance with somebody and how will i know back to back. she looks absolutely amazing and moves like youve never seen her. she controls the stage like no other has - ever! then she sings the beginning of i believe in you and me and moves into the best performance of i will always love you that i have heard. she holds every note longer than usual and adlibs soooo well in this rendition. you honestly have to see it. some people say that her divas live version was her best, but i like this one for sure. she ends by singing a very good version of my love is your love (one of her newer songs - a multi-platinum single). she stole the show.
bottom line -BUY this DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you wont be sorry.
