Blondie was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during 2006!!!
This concert dvd was filmed after their late 90's release of an album full of new material (I can't remember the name, but it's the one that contained the hit "Maria")! With the release of "Maria", Blondie had a #1 hit in the U.K. during the 70's, the 80's, and with "Maria" in the 90's!!!
They are certainly a great band and Debbie Harry is an outstanding performer!!! This concert DVD proves it!!! The song set consists of 16 songs, all are great. Some highlights, I especially liked include:
"Hanging on the Telephone"
"Boom Boom in the Zoom Zoom Room"
"Forgive and Forget"
"One Way or Another"
"Shayla/Union City Blue"
"In the Flesh"
"Heart of Glass"
Plus, it contains a bonus video of "Nothing is real but the Girl".
This is a great one in my opinion, if you're a Blondie fan this is a "must have" concert dvd. If you're not a Blondie fan, buy one and watch it, and I think you'll like it. Debbie is full of enthusiasm and this is a "feel-good" concert to watch. Thanks, and may God Bless.
In any case, I was browsing the DVD bargain rack and found "Blondie Live," a DVD of a 1999 concert at New York Town Hall. I had to have it, of course. It's a well done production and I enjoyed it very much. The photography, in particular, is quite well done. It varies from shots of the crowd to tight close-ups of the performers, particularly Debbie Harry. Debbie and the excellent drummer seemed to capture most of the camera work, and they earned it. I had gripes about the sound. It's just not very good. I'm sure their equipment is good, but the total sound recorded included the room acoustics. The sound was such that listening to and understanding the lyrics was difficult. At one point, Debbie Harry made an announcement at the mic with a silent band and you could just barely make it out. The sound was that bad. It's nothing unusual, I might add. I can remember going to concerts at the San Diego Sports Arena and having my ears ringing but not being able to understand the song lyrics. A lot of DVD concerts have this difficulty with room acoustics.
In any case, the concert was quite enjoyable. Debby Harry was bigger and a bit more lumpy than I remembered but her voice was in fine form and I just loved hearing "One Way or Another" and "Heart of Glass." Excellent! The band was active and animated and put on an excellent show, particularly the drummer. The song list was longer than on the DVD cover and not in the same order. The audience, including people of all ages, obviously enjoyed the show. Well, it was a good show!

The band is tight and the song selection is good. Debbie has lost her diva appeal and her voice is not always on key. But, the show is enjoyable. Read morePublished on May 31, 2013 by fsudenny
Sound quality is average at best. Image quality is below average for blu Ray. These 2 things would generally put it in the pile of rarely watched concerts. Read morePublished on March 21, 2012 by byusgds
