5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and remarkable October 22, 2013
Format:DVD
Sara is the rare performer who somehow manages to sound even better live than she does on CD. It's almost as if she holds back a little bit in the recording studio, but onstage she really lets loose. This CD and DVD are proof of how strong and pure her voice really is. There's no fancy mixing or post-production here; I saw this tour the night after it was filmed, and she really does sound this remarkable live.

The "Brave Enough" tour was Sara alone onstage with a handful of instruments, telling stories, cutting up with the audience, and playing a mix of new songs, reworked classics and covers. Speaking of the covers, Sara has a knack for taking a beloved song and making it her own. "Hollywood Reporter" even said that her cover of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" is "so spine-tingling that -- blasphemous as this might seem -- it might eclipse any rendering of it that Elton himself has ever done." Another highlight of the show is "I Just Want You," a tender, ukulele-backed tune that Sara performed only on this tour. In closing, kudos to Sara & Co. for leaving the DVD largely unedited, complete with audience banter and even flubbed lyrics during one song. It lets you see how personable, raw and engaging she is, particularly in a setting as intimate as Variety Playhouse.

EDIT 10/24/13: For the record, there are no special features on the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sara Bareilles is Brave Enough and more! October 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You might say that Sara Bareilles had me at "Love Song" her catchy and first No. 1 hit. But my admiration for her work grew with each release, from "Little Voice" to "Kaleidoscope Heart" to her latest release "The Blessed Unrest". She reeled me in for the kill with her latest single "Brave", a song she says she wrote in part to support a friend of hers who recently came out as a lesbian. As a gay man, I found her especially brave to stand up for the gay community.

"Love Song" and "Brave" are both included here, as glorious stripped down versions, packed full of energy and love for the Atlanta audience who has come to see her. The bond between singer and audience at the Variety Playhouse is palpable. The audience even gets a lovely song Bareilles has written just for them and never recorded on any other record, the heartfelt "I Just Want You".

Bareilles has a stage presence like no other, though you must watch the DVD to fully appreciate it, as the CD is edited and a lot of her funniest on stage banter is dropped. Beginning with "Love On The Rocks" with a nod to Elton John's Bennie and the Jets at the tail end, things get off to a powerful start, followed by a beautiful, unplugged version of "Uncharted" and the slow, piano driven "Manhattan", which sends chills up the spine. Bareilles accompanies herself on acoustic and electric guitars, turning in stellar versions of "Let the Rain" and "Come Round Soon". This live recording, which showcases her electric guitar skills, is hands down the best version of "Come Round Soon" I have ever heard. Because she is in Atlanta, she delivers a soulful version of Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay" with its lyric, "left my home in Georgia, headed for the Frisco Bay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed Enough October 21, 2013
Format:DVD
Sara Bareilles bravely puts would-be diary entries to music that's sometimes rocking, hopping, and popping, and other times soothing, mellowing, and melodious. She inspires, emboldens, and entertains us, and it breaks my heart to see her less recognized than she should be on charts and in awards--but at least we fans know how lucky we are to behold the sacred creations of this incredibly powerful woman. I thanked her very loudly at the Greek Theater in L.A. on 9/11/13, and she briefly engaged me in conversation, but I forgot to thank her specifically for sending out her "Satellite Call". Thank you SO much, forever and ever, Sara. Love always!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave Enough: Live at the Variety (DVD/CD) December 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Brave Enough? Yes, she is! I watched the DVD as soon as it arrived today. Without having read the other comments, I commented to my Hubby (who watched it with me) about the power of her voice and that she really holds back on albums. This incredible format was well done, and I would definitely love to see her perform live. Sara Bareilles' Bravery and vulnerability is an encouragement to behold, and something towards which to aspire.

That Sara Bareilles writes her own lyrics was part of what got me interested in her music. And of course, the music itself. She takes an "upbeat" tune, but when you pay attention to the lyrics, you can see the darkness and feel the ache sympathetically. Then there's the easy "laid back" tunes that have bright and happy lyrics. This Brave Enough DVD allowed me to see more of Ms. Bareilles' talent, with her playing the piano, acoustic guitar, ukulele, "hand organ," and an electric guitar all by herself on stage while talking w/ the audience and singing away. She give a wonderful, down-to-earth performance.

I love that the editors of the DVD left in the interaction with the audience. The questions from folks in the audience and Ms. Bareilles' witty comebacks are so enjoyable and they actually made me laugh. Hearing the artist "mess up" her own lyrics, be up front about it, being REAL about music is a reminder of the true artist that is within Sara Bareilles. There's rawness, realness, and just an all around organic enjoyable experience to listening to Sara Bareilles, whether it be CD or this recorded live performance.
