I recall an interview with Jackson (this was in the nineties) in which he says that touring becomes easier the longer you do it. He likened it to an old man playing racketball against a much younger man: the young guy flying around, slamming into walls trying to make impossible shots while the old guy, even though he seems to be barely moving, keeps winning because all of the various angles and trajectories are so ingrained. So it is with this performance captured last November in Denver, and originally broadcast on Axs. A beautifully lit stage covered with huge area rugs create a living room atmosphere, and from the moment he steps out, Jackson becomes the welcoming host, taking requests, bantering with the sold-out arena as if everyone there are friends he's known for decades; and in a very real sense he has, just as they've known him. Since 1972 his songs have provided solace and meaning for so many of us who came of age during one of the most confusing and tumultuous periods in our nation's history. Love, loss, war, social upheaval...it's not an overstatement to say that Jackson's words, voice and music provided those of us who cared enough to listen an indelible, indispensable resource for processing the pain, longings and fear those times. But this is far from a history lesson. Jackson Browne's songs carry in them timeless truths and themes that are just as, if not more relevant today as they were when we were questioning our wars, our leaders, our hearts and dreams.

Throughout the concert, Jackson deftly mixes and matches the support of guitarists Val McCallum and Sean Watkins, drummer Mauricio Lewak, bass, keyboardist Tyler Chester and, of course, the violin and beautiful voice of opener, Sara Watkins. (Note: Watkins' opening set is not included in this release.

First off, let me say that I have been a fan of Jackson's since his first album when he was performing at very small venues, like The Main Point (a small coffee house in Brynmawr,Pa. outside Philadelphia). I watched his rise to fame in the 70's and 80's, playing bigger and bigger venues as "The Record Company" tried to make as much money off of him as possible. I know and own all of his music, and have enjoyed all the different phases of this artist's career. I have varying opinions (like everyone else) of what I would have liked to seen him do, than what he has actually done. Which is why I have chosen to express my views on this particular dvd release. Jackson Browne is an intimate singer song writer, always is and always has been. Did he write some Incredibly Great Hits? You bet he did! But that alone does not define him. He is a much more complex artist than a "Hit Making" Rock & Roll Star. This dvd is a good example of the intimate side of him and his music(sometimes allowing the audience to express their impatience with the set list and the pace of the show). The 2012 tour was billed as an "Acoustic Venue" and the promoters tried to make it clear that if you were expecting an electric performance, this tour was NOT it. The consumer was informed of this before they bought tickets to his show. That is just what you get here on this dvd. Jackson and his Bandmates are very laid back here and are not trying to bring down the house. The song setlist is not a "sing along" of his greatest hits. But, if you are a long time fan like me you will really enjoy this show because all of his music is brilliant, especially the music that was not on the top of the charts. Now all that being said, I do have other opinions about the "choice" to release this side of him at this particular point in time.Read more ›

Jackson lays out his take on life in a serise of songs that expose his genius. Acoustic plus with little intros and much soothing strumming. Excellent sound and non-jittery camera work.

It's 2013, and I never even thought to check what the sound was on this disk. In these times, one expects 5.1 and never even bothers to check. I have been waiting for years for Jackson to put out an acoustic DVD so I jumped on this the moment I saw it. I was shocked when it arrived and I found that it was recorded in Dolby 2.0!!! It's like listening to a VHS tape from the 80s. All of the sound is channeled through your center speaker, with absolutely no "presence". Even his "Going Home" DVD from 2000 is in 5.1.

If it was Dolby 5.1 you could actually feel like you were at the concert, but instead you have to put up with very muted sound. I thought that this could bring back some memories from when we sat front row at one of his concerts, but there is no "presence" or clarity at all to this disk. Can't believe they produced this in 2012. So disappointing.

Originally shot as a musical with songs by Sinead O'Connor and Prince, this remarkable pic tested so badly in pre-release that they excised ALL the songs and dance numbers. You'd never miss em'. Nick Nolte is an earnest actor struggling to make it in L.A. when his ex-wife drops the bombshell that their five year-old daughter (who Nolte barely knows) will now be coming to live with him. You thought that kid from "The Sixth Sense" was good? Wait til' you see THIS little spitfire! Julie Kavner is amazing as the head of a test-screening/marketing company, who spews truth (and uncanny insights) like bullets from an AK-47. The real draw here though, is the rocky and tender relationship that develops between Nolte and his young daughter, against the backdrop of a gutless and brainless movie business.
