This 1995 outdoor concert captures Annie Lennox at the climax of her emergence as a solo performer, drawing from both her stunning, largely self-written 1992 debut album, Diva, and its immaculately crafted sequel, Medusa, devoted to gourmet cover performances. With Lennox in powerful voice, a solid live band attuned to the material's mix of pop, rock, and R&B accents, and an enraptured audience, Live in Central Park thus charms from opening downbeat to final coda, retaining Lennox's usual bracing mix of intelligence and drama. With her close-cropped, dark hair and bold tartan outfit, the erstwhile Eurythmic dials down the sharper edges and chillier mood of that band's most stylized work to focus on the haunted passions that bridge the Scot's solo and group efforts; her choice of songs from her old band's repertoire locks snugly into the spectrum of romantic obsession, heartbreak, and resignation that shape solo signatures like "Walking on Broken Glass," "No More 'I Love You's'," and "Little Bird."

The concert footage is solidly shot and recorded, while the audio recording is crisp if not optimally mixed for 5.1 surround coverage, a fate neither surprising nor uncommon for a pre-DVD era production. Four promotional clips, produced for the Medusa project, largely offset such flaws, especially in light of her scant output since. --Sam Sutherland

The title is how I feel about this remarkable DVD. It's a one of a kind concert, which only Annie can give you. Totally of her own, personal line of taste and performance. I not only have this DVD, but own the VHS edition too! The VHS has less stuff on it, and the sound is a bit off. That's why I had to have the DVD. All through the show, Annie loses herself in her songs, and takes on a different personality. She wowed the crowd throughout all her greatest songs and some new stuff too, never seen before, live.
I personally love "Why", "Waiting in Vain", "Little Bird", "Legend in my living room", "I love you like a ball and chain" and "Train in vain". These songs are all great performed live.
"Money can't buy it" is almost like the original CD version, but I don't think Annie would ever think of lip synching to a song. This particular song has that groovy, laid-back feeling to it.
Kind of sexy, tough, crazy, and vulnerable all in one.
"Why" brings back the memories of when the Diva CD was released. I was so happy to hear such a soulful, sadly beautiful song on such a beautiful album. Same with the live version. I think this is the only version live that brings me to tears.
"You have placed a chill in my heart" shows that Annie has it all, when she sings. She loses herself in the animal called talent. This is the only song Annie has sung live, where she can really go to town vocally. What amazing adlib and moves only she can do, I appreciate this golden oldie for all it's worth.
"No more I love you's" is one of those songs where vocals and adlib are lacking. This live version is not as good as the Medusa CD version. Not too much else I can say about this one.

Annie Lennox is one of modern music's most gifted vocalists and songwriters. Captured on this DVD live from Central Park, Annie shows the remarkable range of her career - from the cutting edge sounds of Eurythmics to the sophisticated leanings of her recent solo albums. It's all here in one gorgeous package!
As a bonus, four promotional videos from the "Medusa" album are included as well as interview snippets. Watch Annie's transformation in the interviews from feelings of insecurity about performing live after so long, to exhilaration and amazement after the actual event. A chronicle of her psyche, so to speak. What a prelude to the Eurythmics tour that came just a few short years later!

A great display of how powerful Annie Lennox is live on stage. This DVD provides a great mix of her talent & music recorded over the past many years with & without the Eurythmics. Hope she will do more in the future.

I love both Annie Lennox and Eurythmics, especially their live performances, and this Live In Central Park is simply stunning: Annie knows how to make her interpretations unforgettable. Wonderful as usual, wrapped in a daring tartan suit, she leaps on the stage catching the audience with her exclusive voice. The concert includes songs from her solo albums Diva and Medusa and also hits from her Eurythmic career. You can also view the song's lyrics as subtitles. The concert is mixed together with footages of Annie in N.Y. and studio rehearsals with the band. The DVD also contains the videoclips for No More "I Love You's", A Whiter Shade Of Pale, Waiting in Vain (very funny, with a multi-Annie playing Minnie Mouse) and Something So Right. Each video is presented by Annie sitting in the theatre where some clips were filmed. Maybe the DVD could appear a bit dated, but remember that it was filmed for the first time in 1995.

Here is the concert playlist:

1. Money Can't Buy It (Diva, 1992): similar to the album version. ***

2. Legend In My Living Room (Diva, 1992): similar to the album version. ***

3. Walking On Broken Glass (Diva, 1992): a very happy and inspired rendition. *****

4. No More "I Love You's" (Medusa, 1995): touching and intimate: Annie performs with the same hairstyle of the videoclip. *****

5. Who's That Girl? (Touch, 1983): sensuality and angst for one of the best performance of the concert. *****

6. You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart (Savage, 1987): to the verse "I just want someone to hold", Annie thrills the audience screaming "I" for nine times! Disarming. ****

7. Waiting In Vain (Medusa, 1995): a Bob Marley classic reinterpreted with guitar accompaniment. ****

i bought the vhs when it came out years ago and was blown away. she is fantastic live. i'm sure the dvd is even better. she has a great voice, stage presence and of course not hard on the eyes. almost all the footage is from her live concert, but there is some footage from rehearsal. well edited. the only bummer is that the concert is a tad short and she didn't sing as many eurythmics songs as i'd like.

From start to finish, this concert video showcases the one and only true aspect of this performer, her voice. There are no gimmicks on stage and Annie gives everything she has to an audience that has waited years to see her perform live. Most people who are used to the visual aspects of performances by the Eurhythmics will find this offering sparse in the visual dept. The clarity of Annie's voice and the raw drive of her emotional pleas for love and revenge common in her works makes up for it. The rare treat available in this video as well is the intimacy Annie offers in her on camera interviews throughout the concert. Most fans are aware that Ms. Lennox guards her privacy and these interviews somwhat whet one's appetite for a look into the workings of her psyche. For those of you who still want the visual aspects of Annie's art, some videos are included with this video including the gem "No more I love yous". A definite consideration for purchase for both cultists and new fans.
