This 90-minute documentary/concert film was first broadcast on the Disney Channel in 1994. "I'm Alive" had just been released and it was a perfect moment in Jackson Browne's career for fans old and new to pay a visit, and to take stock. For me, "I'm Alive" represented a coming full-circle for Browne as he, after a decade of focusing his passions and talents mainly on social issues, returned to his greatest gift, that being his ability, through beautiful writing and performances, to probe the highs of Love, the depths of loss and the remarkable resiliency of the human heart. In my opinion, it's what Jackson has always been able to do better than any one of his peers, and it is why he is universally acknowledged to be one of his generation's very finest singer-songwriters...but back to the film. Jackson is captured just as the final touches are being put on "I'm Alive" and it serves as a perfect springboard all the way back, even beyond the beginning of his career. Through rare footage and meticulously interwoven interviews with Browne and many of his contemporaries, we learn of his early interest in songwriting, the strong and sobering impact of his first trip to New York, the reputation he quickly gained as a seminal voice in the Singer/Songwriter movement, his (continuing) altruistic involvement in social issues and, finally, "Going Home" musically, through incredibly moving performances of "Sleep's Dark and Silent Gate," "Sky Blue and Black" and "Before the Deluge." The pacing and editing of this documentary are simply perfect. A particularly effective highlight is a seamless 4-minute trip through Jackson's career as he performs "Doctor My Eyes" in three different decades! Finally, the taping of the documentary's exclusive concert footage is absolutely stellar.Read more ›

Don't get me wrong. I love Jackson Browne. I have many fond memories of listening to his classic albums over and over again--we would have Jackson Browne nights when I was in college. And yes, learning what we learn from the interviews about the way he makes his music, about his early beginnings as a musician, his political activism, etc. (by the way, as a parent I would love to hear his thoughts on parenthood), all is fascinating and is well worth watching. But I would have made one plea to the editors: don't sacrifice the music! I am one who finds it sacriligious to cut off a song early, or to enter a song late. A song is an organic whole: if not heard in its entirety one has not heard the song. But time and time again, this DVD cuts the songs off before their conclusion. In fact, there are only perhaps three songs (and I mean "perhaps" because of some very quick editing) that we hear in full. I expect this sort of thing from VH1 or MTV (for consumers who, at least many of them, don't hold music in such high regard over celebrity), but I don't expect this of a DVD. The model of excellence in concert and interview video, as the model for so much in film making, is Martin Scorsese's work with The Last Waltz (The Band). The interviews in that film are fascinating and informative, but separated from the music. The format worked well on film, but even more on DVD. One can listen to the interviews one wants, but also hear the music in full.
Here's a message for Jackson Browne (if ever he would listen to this). Jackson, there are a lot of middle aged, near to exhaustion, folks like me who would be revitalized by your music. Yes we would love to hear whatever you want to say.

Having been a fan of Jackson's since day one, I was anxious to receive my copy of this DVD. The melding of old performance to new performance was flawless. The sound quality was also superb. The song selection is everything that it should be. However,...... it was most disappointing that this is actually a documentary of the career of Jackson Browne.
Maybe I should have read the details a little closer. Three quarters of the songs are interrupted by dialog, and never finished.
If you want to see Jackson Browne in pure concert form, this DVD is not for you. Wait for, or demand a real concert video from the people who produce them.
As a die hard J.B. fan, I'm still glad I own it, but I'll be waiting for something on the order of The Eagles' "Hell Freezes Over" DVD.

A couple of things first, my disc is defective as the first song has a blank black part, part way into it and this is not a concert, where as most of the songs are interrupted for interviews and the like.(I can't stand that!) Instead of letting the song play out and THEN talking either before or after, the producer decides to ruin the songs with interruptions. The documentary is great, the music is well recorded and professionally shot with mostly clean footage. I have seen other documentary DVDs that don't ruin the songs and are more enjoyable to watch AGAIN as you can skip past the interviews and watch and listen to the music. Doc's are good, but for me I can only watch then one or two times maybe before, OK I know what it's about, then I'm done with it if I can't play it with out skipping the documentary parts and getting P.O.'d. This is one of those where every thing about the DVD is very good, if it was a concert or the producer had common sense. The performances were for the most part excellent, same as the Audio and Video but I can't give it a 4 or 5 star rating even though it may deserve it the disappointment factor only let's me give it at the max a 3.
Play the music first THEN talk, kind of like a commentary overriding a movie, now how many times can you watch that, once, twice? I'm a HUGE JB fan and have seen him live 3 times and with all the concert footage clips in this, why in Heaven's name is there no REAL concert DVDs from this guy! This is a good one to rent but to buy??? That's up to you.

I wish Amazon had a 3 criteria rating that would make for a quicker, more accurate and fair rating of Cd's, DVDs and Blu-ray's.

1. Performance
2. Quality of Audio
3. Quality of Video (for DVDs and Blu-ray's)

1.****
2.*****
3.
