Editorial Reviews

Considering that Carly Simon likes being on stage about as much as the rest of us like being audited by the IRS, the very existence of this one-hour concert (recorded in 1987 on Martha's Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts) will bring joy to the hearts of the singer-songwriter's many fans. One of the truly original, trailblazing female singer/songwriters of all-time. Carly Simon 'Live From Martha's Vineyard -The Classic Concert' captures a true musical icon performing some of her best-loved hits live on stage in a rare and extraordinary performance.

Live from Martha s Vineyard- The Classic Concert captures the artistic genius of a true musical icon performing many of her classic hits. Originally aired as an HBO special in 1987, Carly s magical performance combined with the enchanting backdrop of Martha s Vineyard is a one of a kind event.

After being out of print for many years, this popular DVD is being brought back for the fans to enjoy again.

Includes the hits You're So Vain, Nobody Does It Better, The Right Thing To Do, Anticipation, You Belong To Me, and Coming Around Again.

20 minute interview: filmed at her home on the Vineyard, Carly shares her memories of the concert, the songs and the band with her usual candor and humor. The interview is enhanced with previously unseen concert footage.

Photo scrapbook: featuring rare photographs from Carly's archives

Pop singer Carly Simon has rarely performed a "Live" concert, which makes this DVD version of her 1987 live concert from Martha's Vineyard (which originally aired as a special on HBO) all the more a collector's item.   The concert on this DVD represented her first live performance since 1980, and is one of a mere three concerts by the smooth-sounding singer ever to be captured on film.
This concert was filmed on June 9, 1987, which turned out (after some rain earlier that day) to be a beautiful Tuesday afternoon/early evening.  Pretty Massachusetts seafront scenery complements the proceedings nicely.  Carly's "Live" audience this day seems to be a rather small one, which allows for a more natural, relaxed, and "homey" feel to the performance.
The previous VHS version was pretty good too....for VHS videotape.  But it's really nice to be able to upgrade this great Martha's Vineyard outing to the improved DVD format.  This Digital version looks pretty darn good to me. It's not perfect, but definitely an improvement over the VHS version. Not having to deal with annoying VHS "tracking" difficulties, and being able to directly access each song via chapter selections, make the DVD version of this concert the ultimate video format of choice.
In the parlance of DVD-Video terminology, the picture quality here might be deemed as being slightly on the "soft" side. And there's still quite a bit of grain evident. It could definitely have been a bit sharper in places, but it still looks fine to my eyes. And the colors look very "warm" and natural.
Audio .... There's a new re-mixed Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround soundtrack here.  Sounds fantastic!  There's a second audio track included also -- an "enhanced" Dolby Digital 2.

Such a STELLAR concert video!!! Carly Simon is a musical icon who bewitches us with this amazing concert set in the gorgeous background of Martha's Vineyard! Carly, beautiful as ever, has a magical voice that sounds even more magnificent live! Her band is super-tight & the song selection pleases all, with wonderful selections from her vast array of hits! It has become a tradition for me to carry this DVD with me on flights to New York & to Boston! There's nothing quite like flying into New York in the evening while watching & listening to 'Nobody Does it Better'; or landing over Boston harbor while being enchanted by 'Do the Walls Come Down'. This DVD is simply MAGIC!!! I give this the HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION POSSIBLE!!! Carly RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Cool note: Sherry Goffin, one of singer-songwriter Carole King's talented daughters, is among the incredibly talented background singers!!!)

With its gorgeous scenery in the background, cool breezes blowing across the bay, & the changing colors of the sun over the water it doesn't get much better than this - except for the arrival of the legendary singer-songwriter Carly Simon!!! Here in her magical setting, Carly Simon is at her best - performing her greatest hits in fine form! Standouts include 'Two Hot Girls on a Hot Summer Night' & 'Coming Around Again/Itsy Bitsy Spider', among others! This DVD begs the question: When, oh when, can we get the other Carly videos on DVD?: 'The Concert at Grand Central', 'My Romance', & 'Greatest Hits'!!! Legions of Carly fans want these on DVD!!!!!! She is quite simply the BEST!!!!!!!!! What a MAGNIFICENT concert DVD this is!!!!!!!!

How long have we been waiting for this to come out on DVD? I'm not sure. I only know my VHS is threadbare and unwatchable.
To see Carly performing live on that windy and beautiful coast of her home island...it just gets better with the years. Her voice is at its strongest and clearest, the band - with the great T-Bone Wolk and Ricky Marotta - is completely as one with her, and the whole event just sounds, looks and feels like what every intimate concert should. When she performs the haunting `Do The Walls Come Down', with her hair softly blowing in the ocean breeze and the gulls gliding through the sky in the distance, you are so transported to the spot that you feel the chill in the air. When she takes the piano to do `You're So Vain', grinning and leading a mesmerized audience along, you'll swear it tops the original recording.
The DVD itself, produced by Jodie Wright, is in perfect harmony with the content. It's cleanly and simply designed, with stunning images under the menus and no unnecessary alleyways to stumble into. Not only does the Surround Sound enhance the music, but the digital remastering of the footage itself does wonders for the visuals; I swear, the original showing on HBO didn't look this good.
I strongly recommend viewing the interview with Carly first, although I suspect fans don't need any such urging. Filmed this year specifically for this release, it reveals Carly at her most bewitching: remembering, joking, and adding disarmingly honest insights here and there.
This isn't just a keeper for Carly Simon fans. At the risk of sounding like an internet blurb, I can't think of many better gifts than a knock-out performance by a star famous for her rare appearances, on a finely-crafted DVD.
PS to Ms Wright: when can we hope for the Grand Central concert?
