Product Description

"Live" was recorded on their spring 2002 tour and includes versions of classic AKUS songs such as "When You Say Nothing At All", "Baby, Now That I've Found You", "The Lucky One" and "Down By The River To Pray" from the "O Brother Where Art Thou?" soundtrack.

If you love concert DVDs that offer first-rate music, excellent sound and picture, a beautiful setting, and substantial bonus features, then Alison Krauss and Union Station Live is destined to become your new favorite. It's not just for bluegrass fans either, as proven by Krauss's crossover success on the smash soundtrack of O Brother, Where Art Thou? as well as her pop-oriented hits such as "Now That I've Found You." That song plus "The Lucky One," "When You Say Nothing at All," and others are the perfect showcase for Krauss's meltingly gorgeous voice, and admirers of the concert's two-CD set will also find out how funny she is in her between-songs banter. AKUS has never been all about Krauss, however, so there are also instrumental jams plus featured spots for other members, including Dan Tyminski on O Brother's rousing "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow."

The second DVD offers 50 minutes of interviews in which all five members plus drummer Larry Atamanuik discuss their influences, their instruments, and their favorite songs. There's also backstage and road footage, baby pictures, and more. Perhaps the only disappointment is that two songs from the CDs are not included in the concert: "Down to the River to Pray," which is heard over the end credits but not shown on stage--presumably because the CD version was not taken from this 2002 Louisville show--and "There Is a Reason." --David Horiuchi

Along with my father, we went to see Alison Krauss & Union Station perform live in El Paso, TX in early December of last year, and we were just blown away by the amazing talent of these musicians. Alison Krauss' voice sounded more beautiful and was more astonishing than any studio song I've ever heard recorded by her. Members of Union Station, Barry Bales, Jerry Douglas, Ron Block, and Dan Tyminski blew up away with their instrument playing. It's hard to believe that both my first concert, and pretty much my Dad's first concert, would pretty much turn out to be overall perfect. Alison Krauss sang beautifully and Union Station performed exceptionally.
When I was thinking of a gift to buy my father for Christmas, I remembered how much he was blown away by the concert. So, I ordered the DVD version of their live concert from April 29 and 30, 2002 at The Louisville Palace in Louisville, KY. My father was so happy when he got the DVD, and he loved watching all of the artists performs. He said it was haunting to see them on screen, considering we had just seen them in concert, and he said it was just like being there all over again -- hearing them live, being blown away by their amazing talents.
Alison Krauss & Union Station have to be some of the best artists to have come along ever since music was first being recorded. They're talents are breath-taking and you won't have a single flaw to point out about them.
I think the more special 'treats' on this 2 DVD set are the intense, instrument-only performances "Choctaw Hayride" and "Cluck Old Hen". It's amazing watching how fast and accurate these musicians play their instruments. Not only does Alison Krauss sing, but she also plays the fiddle.

This is an excellent DVD, and long awaited for AKUS fans. Both the video and audio components of this concert are worth the price alone. The DTS 5.1 surround sound makes it feel like you're front and center. The concert is the same one that they used to make their "AKUS - Live" 2-CD set, with some omissions, most notably the two encore songs after "Oh, Atlanta". One highlight, for me at least, was the inclusion of the band's banter with the audience between songs. There is a little of this on the CD version, but much more is included here, and it really showcases the band's personality and sense of humor. For those who have been to one of their concerts, this truly is the next best thing to being there.
Disc two is far less impressive. The interviews are pretty stiff, and the producer got a little carried away with photography tricks - switching from color to black-and-white endlessly, and video gymnastics that look like they came right off of an overdone powerpoint presentation. The behind-the-scenes footage is simply the result of someone holding a home video camera and taking various shots of everyone monkeying for the camera. It's not all bad, by any means, but it is a lost opportunity for those who were hoping to get a little more insight into the band.
Bottom line, however - this is an excellent concert and a very well done DVD at that. It rivals the Eagle's "Hell Freezes Over" DVD for sound and video, and is one I will be watching over and over for years to come.

I have just watched this concert twice in a row straight through.
I've seen the band live on two separate occasions and whereas a film/video/dvd can never replicate the exact experience, this DVD comes very close.
Those familiar with the live CD (which this is the visual version of) will appreciate the additional dialogue and between songs banter. Alison is very funny and natural when talking to the audience, her brand of wry self depreciating humour comes across very well, and endears her to the viewer.
The musicianship is impeccable, first rate, amazing, defies superlatives. Especially the world class dobro playing of Jerry Douglas (though the whole band is musically above reproach).
The visuals are very clear, lots of detail on the individual solo-ists as they take their breaks.
The sound is crystal clear, no nuance is missed.
Buy it, listen, watch, be amazed.
Then watch and listen all over again, you'll still be amazed.

This concert DVD is one of my favorite DVDs-- the DVD captures the blended harmonies and the tight playing of Alison Krauss & Union Station. This DVD is close to having Alison and her band playing a concert in your living room. Viewers who also play bluegrass will appreciate the close upsections on the various players.
Alison superbly fronts her band with her angelic voice. Dan Tymanski (hope I spelled his name right) adds his clear strong vocals and is featured soloist on a number of cuts including his well-received and awarded "Man of Constant Sorrow" solo. Jerry Douglass could not be bested by anyone else in the world on his Dobro and his playing is featured throughout the DVD. His solo instrumentals he nails down pat. Each member of the band is given a chance to shine btw.
If you like acoustic music and great vocal harmonies you would likely enjoy this DVD. Now if I can only find a DVD of that TV special of Shania Twain backed by Alison Krauss & Union Station that I saw on TV this winter. I don't think there is a DVD out yet of that show but if one comes out I will buy it promptly.

DVD or HD DVD or does it matter?

I have this same concert recorded on my HD DVR (it was broadcast in High Def at the time). I also own the regular DVD and have compared the HD recording to the standard DVD (using an upscaled DVD player).

There is no doubt that the high HD version on my HD DVR is a superior picture... Read More
