Editorial Reviews

He is the Mozart of pop, the Orson Welles of rock, the George Gershwin of his generation. You'll see and hear exactly why on An All-Star Tribute to Brian Wilson, a celebration of Wilson's artistry held at New York's famed Radio City Music Hall on March 29, 2001. This once-in-a-lifetime gathering of superstars and legends takes us on an amazing musical journey through an unparalleled body of work--and along the way, we learn the uplifting story of the heroic survivor who has brought us a lifetime of "Good Vibrations." Songs: Our Prayer (Boys Choir of Harlem), California Girls (Ricky Martin), Help Me Rhonda (Ricky Martin), Surfer Girl (Paul Simon), Surf City (The Go-Go's), In My Room (David Crosby, Carly Simon, Jimmy Webb), The Warmth of the Sun (Vince Gill), I Get Around (Evan and Jaron), God Only Knows (Elton John), I Just Wasn't Made for These Times (Aimee Mann, Michael Penn), Don't Worry Baby (Billy Joel), Sail On Sailor (Darius Rucker, Matthew Sweet), You're So Good to Me (Wilson Phillips), Good Vibrations (Heart, Jubilant Sykes, Boys Choir of Harlem), Surf's Up (David Crosby, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb), Heroes and Villains (Brian Wilson), Wouldn't It Be Nice (Elton John, Brian Wilson), Barbara Ann (Brian Wilson, Ensemble Cast), Fun, Fun, Fun (Brian Wilson, Ensemble Cast), Love and Mercy (Brian Wilson). 96 minutes.

My vow of poverty (empty pockets) kept me from attending this show. Brian Wilson is amazing. Prior to 1995, he was probably struggling to figure out what to do; then, a remarriage, a documentary about him, a collaboration with VanDyke Parks, a fresh solo album, two summers of tours, and now this tribute from a handful of rock's big and little stars. BUY THIS VIDEO if only for the Harlem Boys Choir (who better to sing his music besides the BBs?), the holy trinity which performed "Surf's Up", and Vince Gill's "Warmth Of The Sun". I'm not a weepy guy, and I'd never heard Gill's voice prior to this show, and his vocals at this show brought tears to my eyes. In fact, in reading the other reviews here, just reading the reviews bring tears to my eyes, remembering Gill singing "columnated ruins domino". Sell your timeshare, cash in your IRA -- do what you have to do to buy this vid and study a musical master's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too too enjoyable! March 21, 2002
By Gary K
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, this DVD captures some of the greatest performers covering some of the sweetest music of all time! Songs start out from the obscure "Our Prayer" performed by the Boys Choir of Harlem, to Paul Simon's solo-acoustic version (with no harmonies) of Surfer Girl! (Is that possible?) Billy Joel, Elton John, David Crosby, Heart, and many many more are all there! But, whoa.........Vince Gill is worth the price of the DVD alone! His vocals and productions will absolutely blow you away! Wilson Phillips even reunited for a special song! If you're a Brian Wilson fan or just love beautiful melodies and arrangements of these sweet songs, don't miss this DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Word : Incredible! November 18, 2001
By Barry
Format:VHS Tape
This 2001 concert taped in New York City is a rocking concert that is a must for any fan. Brian Wilson is a genius. No doubt about it. There are no words to best describe his brilliance. Mr. Wilson himself shows up at the end of the concert to perform a few songs. While his appearence may be a little haggard, and his onstage actions are pretty much non-existent, you forget all about it once he opens his mouth. My god. It's as if it were the 60's all over again. This concert has an incredible lineup of stars. Some older, some newer. Billy Joel delivers a pitch perfect rendition of "Don't Worry Baby". As perfect as it can get. Elton John sings a brilliant version of "God Only Knows". He
appears later on to sing a duet with Brian. Vince Gill pulls a huge showstopper with his version of "The Warmth Of The Sun". A jaw droppingly beautiful performance. Other performers include Ricky Martin, Heart, The Go Go's, Carly Simon, David Crosby, Evan and Jaron, Paul Simon, Wilson Phillips. The performances are all brilliant. This is one of the greatest concerts filmed and you need to have it as part of your collection. It is essential!.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Vibrations! November 11, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We now own this treasured gift of music, joy and pure (quality) entertainment! BEST All-Star Tribute ever! Just a few we skip past---MANY MORE we replay over and over and OVER again. When we need our spirits lifted--we have a sure thing. Jaw-dropping performances by Vince Gill, Darius Rucker & Matthew Sweet, Billy Joel, Elton John, Heart, adorable David Crosby and the precious BRIAN WILSON. The back-up musicians, The Wondermints, are incredible. The DVD David Crosby interview is delightful. To combine the music of Brian and the Beachboys--with the voices from the late 60's, 70's and 80's is a heart-moving treat. (BEST: Warmth of the Sun, Surf's Up and Sail On Sailor...WOW!)

5.0 out of 5 stars A near-fitting tribute to a modern Mozart November 8, 2001
Alright, so Ricky Martin hacks his way through "Help Me Rhonda", big deal! With guests such as Elton John, Darius Rucker, Billy Joel, Sir George Martin, Paul Simon, David Crosby, Carly Simon and Dennis Hopper, how could you lose? The release of this tribute on DVD is no doubt due to an overwhelming barrage of emails to Brian's official website. This is really a feel-good DVD that ends (as these things typically do) with everyone out on stage at once singing their collective souls out for Brian's sake. Cool! During this wonderful mayhem, Billy Joel and Elton John break out into a beach-music dancing frenzy! If you are a Brian Wilson fan, or have enjoyed his (Beach Boys) music over the years, get this DVD. If you don't have a DVD player, well, this is a reason to buy one! This DVD is far, far better than the video that aired on cable--packed with photos and extra interviews, it is a must-have for fans of the genre. Thank you David Leaf (great effort here), and thank you, Brian Wilson, for simply being you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Tribute January 21, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can enough accolades be heaped on Brian Wilson? I think not! To see his peers perform these songs must have been a pleasure and joy for Brian.
For me, it was reason enough to go out and buy a DVD player! And it was well worth it! Once past that Martin boy, the Paul Simon solo performance was breathtaking...and just suggestion of the gems that lie ahead.
Performers kept coming....Vince Gill, Carly Simon, David Crosby, Jimmy Webb, Elton John, Billy Joel and even some rockers from the present came to pay homage.Not to mention comments by Sir George Martin and Dennis Hopper!
Having seen the Pet Sounds Symphonic Tour in 2001, I was well aware of the musicians that backed up every act - The Wondermints plus people like Jeff Foskett. The back up music MADE the concert the success that it was - the impeccable music coupled with 5-,6- and sometimes 7-part harmonies....just incredible.
Anyway, thanks to TNT for showing the tribute initially...and thanks to all for this astonishing DVD....Brian is THE MAN!
