Editorial Reviews

Recorded live on December 30 & 31, 1981 in Oakland, this DVD captures Earth, Wind & Fire at their absolute peak. Despite being a group of skillful musicians, the true essence of Earth, Wind & Fire has always been the live show, with the choreography, the horns, and the massive stage show supplementing the outstanding combination of funk and R&B.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best concert I've ever seen.... December 23, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are admittedly some flaws with this DVD- meaning it's not long enough, there is over dubbing (done well enough not really intrude unless you're looking for it) and some of their songs like September, Love's Holiday, and After the Love is Gone to name a few that aren't on this and could've made it longer. ALL THAT SAID: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST, FUNNEST AND MOST ENJOYABLE 58 MINUTES YOU WILL EVER WATCH! I love this video. I saw it on "Visions" cable in Alaska back in 1982 back when HBO was the only pay channel and taped this off of that. I LOVE that this is available on DVD. They did a great job on cleaning up the analog recording. Someone else's review took exception to the video quality. I don't know if they wanted 3D or if they were just used to digital to digital. This started as an analog video and as such is limited by that- but the picture is fabulous to me (esepcially in comparison with the crappy copy I had on VHS.)
This DVD is hands down one of the best concerts I've ever watch on DVD- with all the energy, fun and honest love for music that the entire band displays it is contagious and so much fun to watch. The camera work is good- they do a great job of getting around to each member of the band - showing them having a good time and even "funning" around. The soprano sax solo by Andrew Woolfolk is smokin' and the "national anthem" of "That's the Way of the World" is so sincere and uplifting. Just a great concert!!!!!
This DVD would be worth it to me if it was $50 ( but luckily it's not.) I love this concert. It's full of great music and so much fun- and to quote Mr. Phillip Bailey, the "genius of Maurice White."

5.0 out of 5 stars "LEGENDS AT THEIR BEST!" July 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This EWF Live Concert was originally broadcast as an HBO Special in the spring of 1982. Just to give you an idea of the impact the group had on their fans, I was living at home at the time and my mother & I both stayed home from work to catch the show; we both had the pleasure of seeing them Live in person at Philadelphia's Spectrum Arena in 1988 on their "Touch The World" tour of that year. The Philly audience was populated with families and very young people, something you hardly saw at the concerts of EWF's contemporaries! I searched for years with no luck to find this event on VHS and was delighted when I discovered it on DVD a few years ago. A good companion piece is the excellent documentary "Shining Stars: The Official Story Of Earth, Wind & Fire". If you are a hard-core fan you will know all of this already, if not, sample the best that Maurice White, Phillip Bailey and the fellas had to offer, and they are still making music! Peace!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent August 18, 2001
I saw EWF perform this show in England at Wembley Arena, about 6 months after the performance on this DVD, and my overall memory was that of being totally blown away by the musicianship and showmanship of the band. Hence my glee at having this concert on DVD, in pristine quality ( I previously owned the same thing on videotape ). I would heartily recommend any EWF fans to purchase this, as it probably shows the group at their peak, touring on the success of the "Raise" ( Let's Groove ) album. Highlights? The opening tracks "Kalimba Tree", "Let Your Feelings Show", "In The Stone" and the "Phoenix Intro" where the group display a masterclass in how to whip up a crowd, and the science-fiction elements, where "Star Wars", "Star Trek" and "Superman" are paid homage to, are also fantastic ( Darth Vader turns up attempting to cause trouble for Maurice and the boys!! ). The only real downside I have is with regards to the length. The gig I saw was just over two hours long, with kalimba solos and tracks such as "Brazilian Rhyme" missing, so it would be nice in an ideal world to see the full length show. Overall, an excellent purchase and it'll be living in my player for a while to come!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining Stars for U to see! February 10, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I felt like a kid on X-mas day when this video arrived in the mail and rushed to put it on. It's wonderful! Earth Wind and Fire is the greatest soul band of all time. Period. Their music literally feeds your soul. If you want to hear what live music really should sound like and see what a real peformance should look like, get this tape!
I LOVED watching this concert of EWF in the early days. Unfortunately, I never saw them live in the 70s which is why this tape is a true gem. The lighting and special effects, costumes, dancing and the constant energy of the fellas is overpowering! It will take you on a stroll down memory lane and have you movin' & groovin' with Maurice, Verdine and Phillip.
If you want a piece of history to pass down to your children and their children, get this concert! Earth Wind and Fire's music stands the test of time and the beauty of their presence and longevity in the industry lies in the fact that they cross all lines -- race, social class, age. Just look into the faces of their audiences and you'll see the love.
NOTE: The opening sequence will blow your mind! They just don't make concerts like this any more. Wow! CLB.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Earth Wind & Fire DVD! May 15, 2000
By Seand67
I am SO HAPPY to finally add this long out of print concert to my collection! The sound is great, and Pioneer did a nice job with the digital remastering of this old HBO concert from almost 20 year ago! The best part of this experience is seeing most of the original members on stage, and the only problem that I have with the DVD is it's length, only 58 minutes! Come on ! At any rate, any true EWF lover will enjoy this concert, which was during the 1981 'Raise' tour!
