Bobby Womack can definitely be said to be an American original.

I've had this DVD for over a year now and every time I watch it, I enjoy it just as much as I did the first time I viewed it.

Bobby Womack can definitely be said to be an American original. An old school soul singer/songwriter who practically invented his own school... There are no cliches in his music... Bobby Womack *is* Bobby Womack... and its all for the better. - - What's amazing about this DVD is that he performs and sings the songs as if they were written yesterday... His voice hasn't changed a bit... He's looking great too... pretty amazing when you realize this guy started out working for Sam Cooke during the golden age of soul... Aside from his ability to write memorable hits, when you think of all this guys peers, and how few of them are still on the planet... its almost as if this guy is a gift to the world from the fountain of youth... And the great thing about this DVD : his energy and vibrance still show him to be the star that he is... plus he has no shame in playing the tunes the people want to hear. All in all... even though this video wasn't made "back in the day", its still a rare gem. - - At my bar here in Tokyo, I can't tell you how many customers demand I put it on the player every time they come in... and believe me, I have no complaints about that whatsoever !

I've had this DVD for over a year now and every time I watch it, I enjoy it just as much as I did the first time I viewed it. Although, it is unfortunate that I wasn't at the venue when Womack recorded the DVD, when I watch it at home on the big screen and home theater system, it's almost as if I am in attendance. Most all of my favorite Womack songs are performed. Why Harry Hippie was not performed is still mind boggling to me. None the less, this was an excellent DVD. The band was great. Bobby struggled with a few notes but it didn't take away from his performance. His overall performance was great. The DVD was of excellent sound and video quality. This is one of my favorite concert DVDs.

I really enjoyed this Performance from Bobby Womack.He is one of the most Underrated Artists to me.the Guy has a Soulful Pressence&a way with Words.the Cat can still Rap on stage.I've seen tighter overall Concert Footage from Bobby back in the day so this Performance while Good isn't the tightest on the Cat but You Can't go wrong if you are just getting into this Soul Genius Catelog.sit back&hear a Real Rapper,Soul Brother throw Down.Very Underrated Guitar Player&so many other things.the Cat has Gigged with Sly Stone,The Rolling Stones,Rick James Among many others.you can feel the Sam Cooke Influence in his Presentation.

I watched this with my dad on Father's day because he is such a huge fan. He enjoyed it so much and offered it to me to watch at home. I know most of the songs and I enjoyed him giving background information his career and life. So now I am ordering it for myself. I truly enjoyed it and would recommend it.

I REALLY ENJOYED VIEWING THIS VIDEO BECAUSE BOBBY WOMACK SELDOM DID TOURS TO THE CHICAGO AREA. I ALWAYS LOVED HIS MUSIC BUT I DID NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE. I WILL ADD THIS TO MY MUSIC DOCUMENTARY FILE.

This is a great DVD by someone who knows HOW to sing. Bobby has had a long career and isnt afraid to tell you about it. I really enjoy this DVD and have watched it many times. The only weakness in this DVD is the quality of the band. I'm not sure if this is his regular road band. I don't think it is, because none of the artists are listed and he has to instruct them at times during the performance. I think some of these BET DVDs use local musicians. I think this is particularly evident in the Chaka Kahn DVD on BET. She is always great, but she is clearly unimpressed with the band.

I review concerts and erotic films....sometimes I review normal films too...

But I happen to know a quality show when I see one on DVD...and this was not one! I love the music of Mr. Womack and have many of his original records...and CD's.

That being said....I expected so much more from this live show recorded off of BET televison. This was not one of his best perfomances I am sure. I was disappointed by his lack of professionalism performing some of his biggest hit songs.

Most people go to see a live show to hear the songs (in basic form) the original way an artist once recorded it. Performers like the Eagles, Boz Scaggs, Tom Jones, Luther Vandross to name a few...deliver on that important performing aspect sounding like the "original version". Mr. Womack did a poor job of making me believe he wanted to be there singing that night....he seemed to rather sit down and chat with the audience about his long career...instead of concentrating on singing really well. His voice cut out on him many times and sounded powerless....he butchured much of his best material.

The sound quality of this DVD was just average as well....I was highly disappointed by it for many reasons....you may be too!
