The music that is widely regarded as Brian Wilson’s best since his Beach Boys heyday gets the deluxe treatment in That Lucky Old Sun, a 2008 live-in-studio performance of the record that’s bolstered by a wealth of bonus features. Those waiting for Wilson to revisit the genius of Pet Sounds and "Good Vibrations" had best not hold their breath. And no, he’ll never regain that angelic falsetto voice, either. But the aging Brian is disarming and appealing in his own right, and he and his collaborators have concocted a song cycle that can at least be mentioned in the same breath, with gorgeous harmonies, rich melodies, and a warmly nostalgic, autobiographical tone (the 60-year-old title tune was recorded by Louis Armstrong, Frankie Laine, and many, many others). Wilson and his brilliant band offer up an inspired, joyous performance for a small invited audience, with highlights including the "Forever She’ll Be My Surfer Girl," "Can’t Wait Too Long," and "Midnight’s Another Day," all of them among his best tunes in ages. The several narrative interludes, written by longtime co-conspirator Van Dyke Parks, are accompanied by a clever mélange of film, photos (including many of Brian with his late brothers, Carl and Dennis), animation, and other media, making for a really memorable home viewing experience. Prominent among the extra material is "Going Home," a documentary (at 68 minutes, it’s almost twice as long as the concert) that celebrates Wilson’s astonishingly fertile past and chronicles the making of That Lucky Old Sun. Also included are a separate live set (with some Beach Boys oldies); a charming "artist on artist" interview with Brian and actress-singer Zooey Deschanel; commentary by Wilson and co-composer Scott Bennett, and more. --Sam Graham

I was lucky enough to see the live debut of this album at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

As a bonus, one of the extras on this DVD is another high quality recording of Brian and his band performing several live tracks including a few Beach Boys numbers.

Brian Wilson shows us once again why he is regarded as one of the best writers and performers by musicians and fans alike. This highly anticipated DVD was well worth the wait. The DVD itself is high quality, with superior picture and sound. Each track from the Lucky Old Sun CD is played in order. I purchased the CD when it was originally released several months ago, and have listened to it many times. Watching Brian and his spectacular Band, which Brian has molded together over the past 15 years, play each track to perfection, is a experience we rarely get to enjoy in todays musical climate. As a bonus, one of the extras on this DVD is another high quality recording of Brian and his band performing several live tracks including a few Beach Boys numbers. This DVD also includes a track by track commentary by Brian and Scott Bennett, giving us insight into the inspiration behind the music on Lucky Old Sun. A great DVD.

I recently ordered the DVD, "That Lucky Old Sun" by Brian Wilson. This DVD was outstanding. The music was great, the concert footage was great, the documentary was great, the performances were great, and the whole thing was very interesting. I would highly recommend this DVD for any Brian Wilson fan or Beach Boys fan. Though the years have slowed him, Brian is still a major talent and force in the music world. "That Lucky Old Sun" DVD is a home run for Brian.

WHat a time to be a Brian Wilson fan! First this GREAT new concept album and then a tour to support it! We got the chance to see Brian perform this NUGGET live twice in the New York area over the past month and it sounded as good in person as it does on the CD. It is good to know that one of the most influential song writers in the history of rock and roll (or any other medium) continues to make music that can move you! I simply cannot say enough in support of this terrific effort by the founder of The Beach Boys. Go out and get it or, better yet, order it right here on Amazon.Com

As a huge fan of the Beach Boys, Brian and the TLOS album, I was destined to like this dvd. For me personally, the bonus features are the best part of the dvd, though - particularly the Yahoo set and the Black Cab Session.

I was very disappointed in the way the producers decided to present the actual TLOS "concert". First off, the performance was in front of a very small audience at Capitol Records. Although the crowd was enthusiastic, the actual concert I saw in November at the Ryman in Nashville was much more energetic and I'm not sure this dvd fully captures that energy. Secondly, the vocals on the dvd are, to my ear, over-produced. There is far more effect on Brian's vocals on the dvd than on the studio album and it contributes to making the dvd sound more like a studio recording than a live concert. Additionally, Brian's vocals are so heavily overdubbed that at times it looks like he's lip-synching to a record. Overdubbing the occasional bad note is one thing. Completely re-recording and replacing the vocal performance that accompanied the video, on the other hand is something altogether different. My personal preference is for music dvd's to contain the actual performance that was heard by the audience - mistakes and all. The occasional off-pitch notes are like flaws in fine leather in that they verify the authenticity of the product. Brian was in such fine voice on the TLOS tour that the overdubbing was, in my opinion, unnecessary and more of a distraction than an improvement.

Don't take my observations as suggestions that the dvd is not worthwhile, though, because TLOS is a moving, finely crafted work and the dvd is a treasure for fans of Brian Wilson. I thoroughly enjoyed the dvd and highly recommend it to others as well.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Although Brian Wilson's previous live DVDs of "Pet Sounds" and "Smile" in their entireties are marvelous, in some ways "That Lucky Old Sun" is the most remarkable of all. It's one thing -- and quite a good thing at that -- for him to re-create some of his greatest music some 35-40 years after it was written with the invaluable assistance of one of the finest backup bands in the history of popular music. But it's quite another for him to produce brand-new music of such unexpectedly superb quality. Not only are the melodies and arrangements first-rate, but toward the end it becomes some of the most emotionally naked music he's ever recorded. The one flaw in "That Lucky Old Sun" is that, after a strong start, it drags a bit toward the middle, with "Mexican Girl" in particular not living up to the rest of the suite. But that's a minor quibble, especially since the best material of all is in the final third. If you're a Brian Wilson and/or Beach Boys fan, this is essential viewing. And even if you're not, you just might find it a real eye-opener. If you'll excuse the pun, I consider myself one "lucky old son" to own this DVD!

I have had the CD for "That Lucky Old Sun" ever since it came out and the music has really grown on me. I think, considering his life and his personal difficulties, that its amazing Brian continues to write such fantastic music. So I purchased this DVD and was pleasantly surprised by the live performance and mostly the Documentary and behind-the-scenes footage of Brian and his band in the studio.

If you're a fan of Brian and/or the "That Lucky Old Sun" album, this is definitely worth the money.
