Editorial Reviews

Thirty-five years since they last performed there as an opening act, Daryl Hall and John Oates returned to the Troubadour in May of 2008 to find the legendary Los Angeles club nearly unchanged. The same can't be said for the fourth-biggest act of the '80s (after Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Prince), and the best-selling duo ever. For two nights, they delighted fans with a nonstop barrage of unforgettable hits, all of which are included on this sensational two-hour concert. Now you can experience this sold-out, $200-ticket show in your own living room. Two-hour concert taped in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience, and featuring 19 songs, including all of their biggest hits. Features a fan-pleasing mix of classics such as "Private Eyes," "Maneater," "Kiss On My List," "Sara Smile," "She's Gone," "Rich Girl," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)," "Family Man," and "You Make My Dreams," along with deep cuts and fan favorites. Six songs never before available on a live release, including "Everything Your Heart Desires" and "When The Morning Comes."

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Performance!!! November 29, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
It hardly seems as though thirty-five years have passed since Daryl Hall and John Oates played The Troubadour. These gentlemen are like a fine wine - they get better with age! If you are looking for a cookie cutter recording of the songs you know and love, this CD may not be right for you. That being said, I submit to you that with the new arrangements and instrumentation found on this CD, your favorite songs will sound better than ever!
What is apparent to the listener is the fact that the vocal performances and harmonies are stronger and more intense than ever before. In addition, the multi-faceted and extremely talented T-Bone Wolk and Charlie DeChant shine bright during this performance.
As for the DVD part of the package... I cannot give it such high reviews. The editor on the project has seen fit to jam the performance full of extremely quick cuts - enough to cause the viewer to need a dose of Dramamine. There are blatant mis-synched shots where Daryl doesn't even look like he's singing the same song as being played. I am aware that this was a two night, best of, compilation. But, I believe that any of their single song performances would have served the viewer better than what was slapped together. It was a good effort, but I feel more of the performance electricity by listening to the CD than watching the DVD.
If you are a die hard fan that HAS to see the performance in order to take away the magic, then buy the combo. If you are truly a music aficionado, and simply want to envelop yourself in the joy that is "Hall and Oates," then the CD is the way to go.
For me, listening to "When the Morning Comes," brings me back to a moment in time when a young child fell in love, simply by turning on her AM radio.
So during this season of giving, I thank Daryl and John (and all that encompass Hall and Oates)for continually sharing their gift with all of us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable "unplugged" sort of set!! w/bonus' November 5, 2008
Format:DVD
I just picked this up used at my local record store (yes, we have a couple where I live...envy me!) and I'm not sure why I did but boy am I glad!

Its a very "unplugged" sort of treatment..which I favor over electronica anyway...and the songs really are not hidden behind too much production but the band is very very good.

nearly 20 songs are played 2 hours (much better than all the 1 hour half shows on DVD these days) and Halls voice is still very very good..blue eyed soul. The bonus interviews are also a nice touch..

If you are a fan this should be a "buy it now"...if your not, I'm not sure why you are reading but this would be a good DVD to start with and you will find you know more of these songs than you thought you did! I believe Hall and Oates officially passed Simon & Garfunkel as the most popular duo of all time many many years ago...and all I mention that for is to note they did have a serious string of hits!

3.0 out of 5 stars Torn between fantastic music and TERRIBLE video... January 10, 2009
By D. Lee
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First things first: The performance on this disc is fantastic. Any H&O fan is going to love it. It's been thirty years, and their voices have mellowed, but not weakened. They always had impeccable harmonies, and that's still very much true. From an instrumental perspective, the acoustic nature of the performance allows for some really neat things, arrangement-wise. They've updated the arrangements of some of their classics with great results.

Anyone who is familiar with Daryl Hall's monthly webcast, Live From Daryl's House ([...]) will be familiar with the format of the performance and the players. In fact, at times this concert feels more like an episode of LFDH with special guest John Oates. Daryl has always been the frontman and featured player, but John has such a beautiful, mellow voice, I found myself wishing they had featured him more often (check out the most recent episode of LFDH where John was a guest...his tracks are beautiful). After 30-something years, there's still quite a bit of magic left in these two. I just wish they would give us some new stuff.

For as terrific as the music and performance are, whoever edited the video of the performance should be ashamed of themselves, tested for drugs, banned from ever using editing equipment again...take your pick. There are multiple instances during every song where the audio and video just DO NOT SYNC UP. These aren't artistic edits either...the video is just slightly ahead or behind the audio. It feels like there was no time track for them to use to match up the audio and video. The band would have been better served using the same crew that does the webcasts. If they did use the same crew, then they were waaaay off their game on this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars The music is great but the producer must have ADD August 28, 2011
By Rick
Format:Blu-ray
For some reason the producers of concert videos think they have to do MTV type cut backs every 5 seconds from one thing to another. Dont these guys understand that the constant video jumping around gives people a headache? Beside that this is a great DVD and worth having. They play a small club and the intimacy comes through in the concert. All of their best hits are in here and a few of their newer songs that Ive never heard are also really good. If you are H&O fans youll enjoy the video once you get past the constant cutting back and forth. I cant believe John Hall is 65 yrs old. He looks 50 in this video!
