Product Description

Shot over two performances on a summer night just before the launch of her ©¯This Way©˜ tour,"Live at Humphrey's By the Bay" is Jewel's first ever Live Concert DVD. Remixed and Mastered to Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS Surround and Dolby Stereo, "Live at Humphrey's By the Bay©˜ captures the true essence of this Multi-platinum singer/songwriter's decade long career. With album sales topping 25 million, "Live at Humphrey's By the Bay" includes all of Jewel©ˆs signature songs including Hands, Everything Breaks Sometime, and You Were Meant For Me and brings you a front row seat in an intimate setting by one of the greatest artists of our generation.

Live at Humphrey's by the Bay is Jewel's first concert disc, and it's a solid success, a blend of signature material and hints of forward progress. Shot just before her 2002 "This Way" tour, the program begins with a startling reminder of Jewel's beautiful pipes on the a cappella "Per La Gloria D'Adorarvi." That protean voice slides gracefully into her whispery and carnal octave-jumper, "Near You Always," adopts a witty, talking blues attitude on "Sometimes It Be That Way," and paints in nocturnal hues for "Grey Matter." Jewel is solo for most of the set, contributing to the sometimes airless feel of her prolific broken-love songs. But "The New Wild West" is an imagistic, extroverted wonder, and "Everybody Needs Someone Sometime" is sassy and shimmering. --Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews

Jewel's voice rang crystal clear.
The best thing about Jewel is her ability to interact so wonderfully and intimately with the audience, and this DVD really demonstrated that talent.
S.R.W. Phillips
The DVD which contains the excellent audio of Dolby Surround Sound 5.1 is great.

First, let me get this off my chest: Finally, a Jewel concert on DVD!
This is Jewel's first concert release on DVD. I thought it was great-- no rapid cuts between cameras, no quirky sound issues, and the picture is crisp, clean, and clear. Jewel is radiant, and I thought this recording did well to capture her sense of humor.
For those who prefer pre-0304 before the makeover, this was performed well before 0304, so it's folkie-acoustic-Jewel. Whether you like her recent transformation or not, this DVD boasts the same great voice her fans have come to know and love.
Though some have complained about the sound, it's not an issue unless you're *really, really, really* a sound buff. I popped it in the player and was able to enjoy it just fine with my TV speakers and the occasional stereo headphone (when I play it on the computer).
About 3/4 of the songs are done solo, so fans of "Jewel & Guitar" won't be disappointed. The last four songs (You Were Meant For Me, Hands, Everybody Needs Someone Sometime, Who Will Save Your Soul) are performed with a band backing her up. (She picks up the electric guitar in the 'Hands' performance.)
Also included are 3 bonus performances of Love Me Just Leave Me Alone, Do You Want to Play, and Jesus Loves You. There's also a Standing Still video, which is basically a montage of various behind the scenes and concert clips showing while the song is playing. Then there's an interview with Jewel that's about 12 minutes long in which she talks about her creative process and the long break she took between before recording 'This Way.'
Jewel's forte is live performances. Though I wish there were more songs, I'll take what I can get.

First of all I am a big Jewel fan. I think she is simply an amazing talent. Just recently saw her on her solo acoustic tour here in the Midwest. She was simply stunning and I have been waiting for her to come out with a live DVD for awhile now. Unfortunately this is a bit disappointing. My initial feel is that product was somehow rushed to take advantage of the current craze for DVD material. My first question is why footage from 2001? I mean it's already mid 2004. The footage somehow seems "old". Jewel is beautiful as always on stage. The camera work is top notch. I hate when there are too many rapid cuts here and there and thankfully this doesn't suffer from that. Even the song list is acceptable, albeit 2001. The first 9 songs are acoustic solo which again is great. The next 4 are with her band, though they are very subdued and are almost non-exsistent. My biggest complaint is the sound mix and mastering are awful by today's standards. The whole acoustic portion has a very dry mechanical sound to it. It lacks sufficient dynamic range and though Jewel does her typical vocal tricks it somehow leaves the listener feeling unemotional and uninvolved. I have bootleg recordings of Jewel that capture her vocal dynamics and finesse better than this DVD. When the band finally plays the bass drum has no punch and the snare has no snap. The bass guitar sounds very weak, overall very disappointing. The bonus tracks are recorded much better but still leave a lot to be desired. I would have enjoyed a much better cross section of material from the early days right up to the present. I realize that the "This Way" tour might not have been as exciting because of Jewels horse riding accident. I have seen footage from the early part of that tour and she can't hardly move at all.Read more ›

I have listened to Jewel since she started. I like her music and anybody can tell me anything they want about it this aging hippie still likes it..including 0304.

I hadn't seen any footage of her, had only heard her. This dvd was just what I wanted to see, her and her guitar on stage singing to a moderately sized audience. No grand theatrics or light shows, just simple music and a beautiful voice.

If I have any complaints it would be that I wanted more but then if she gave it I would still want more.

All in all the dvd is very enjoyable, doesn't get you seasick with camera tricks or poor editing. Just plain music from someone who can keep it simple and wonderful at the same time.

Please don't say I love you,
Those words touch me much too deeply.
They make my core tremble.
Don't think you realize the effect you have over me.
And please don't look at me like that,
It just makes me want to make you near me always.

Jewel's music, her poems and her concerts all show a heart on display. In her first concert disc, there is an overwhelming feeling of intimacy and connection.

So break me
Take me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

The intellectual dances with the child as Jewel's heart opens to the world. She is in touch with the pulse of humanity and even her political statements show an intuitive understanding of society.

Welcome to the new wild west
Each man for himself
A nation of civilized steeples
And lonely people
Welcome to the new wild west

"The New Wild West" is stunning in content and such a contrast to her love songs. Some of her songs had me in tears and a few left me stunned because her lyrics were potent and intellectually pleasurable.


Per la Gloria d'Adorarvi
Near You Always
Kiss the Flame
Rosy and Mick
Everything Breaks Sometimes
Sometimes It Be That Way
Grey Matter
Break Me
The New Wild West
You Were Meant for Me
Everybody Needs Someone Sometime
Who Will Save Your Soul

Bonus Performances:

Love Me Just Leave Me Alone
Do You Want to Play?
Jesus Loves You

I loved the part where she invites a girl up on the stage to whisper the words as she sings. It is amusing, although we can't imagine she would really forget the words.

Is this concert "english subtitled" ??
No, no subtitles or closed captions (I tried with my tv set also). No choice from the dvd setup menu either. It's too bad, since she does both intentionally, and accidentally, change some of the words from the actual real song lyrics.

Jewel often mixes up words and phrases from her different... Read More
