To see Loggins & Messina in the 70's and seeing the DVD of their

final leg of the tour ,brought back some fond memories. I was

hoping they would do this and what a great job they did! First,

of all, the musicians they used were impeckable! Each one played

multi instruments with finese and ease. The violin player ,which played about 5 other instruments sometimes stole the show. He was even playing some of the guitar parts on the tunes! As for what they looked liked,well lets just say its been some 30 years. Kenny is skinny as a rail,Messina has a big gut ,both looked to be very happy. They did some great songs that I was not expecting. Growin,from Mother Lode,Sailing in the Wind from Full Sail and of course our favs,Angry Eyes,Holiday Hotel,Your Mama dont Dance etc.. An over all excellent DVD. At the end, at the special "section" it gives you 4 excerpts of the 1970 show " The Midnight Special". They all looked good, but take note on how fast every tune was played. Yes, this is worth getting. They will not tour again, if you missed it,nor will they make another CD. They stated "we all have other projects to do". Get the CD also for the memories. It also pays fine tribute to the late great

sax man Jon Clarke who just passed away just recently. Go and buy it, you will smile listening to those great tunes of yesteryear..

You normally don't expect much from reunions of long defunct bands. The performances are usually by the numbers, the vocalists have lost a lot of range, etc., etc. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised by this reunion, though. The backing band is entirely different from the original L & M band, but this group knows how to play these tunes, and adds some nice touches to the arrangements. Also, Kenny & Jim can still sing well.

A good selection of their catalog is played, no new material, but a well done cover of Buffalo Springfield's "Kind Woman" is performed. I've watched this dvd on 3 consecutive evenings, and enjoyed it more each time.

Nothing like searching for holiday gifts and finding a great one for yourself! I hadn't even heard that Kenny & Jim had a reunion tour, guess they didn't come close to Vermont! Having played the grooves off my older sister's copy of the "The Best of Friends" LP when I was 13 back in 1976, I had high hopes when I played this DVD for the first time last night.

All I can say is "WOW!" ~ it's so great to see them back together and see their magic in a live setting. The DVD's sound and picture just draw you right in to the concert. I had watched an hour of it in what seemed like minutes.

If for no other reason, buy it so your kids will know that Kenny Loggins had a career BEFORE his days of movie soundtrack hits for Caddyshack, Footloose and Top Gun...yikes!

I'm bringing it over to share with my older sister tomorrow and I know it will bring tears of joy to her eyes to hear all those old tunes done so well. The version of "Be Free" is worth the $14 for this DVD alone.

To the film & music school drop-outs harping about overdubs, etc...I get so sick of these Amazon reviews where people pick the product apart on a technical level. The real question is ~ how much do you enjoy watching and listening to the product, and this one is 5 stars and will be more so with each additional viewing!

I'm a big fan of the music. I first bought "Mother Lode" back in the 70's and it's still one of my favorite recordings. I missed this tour, but was happy to see it released on DVD. The concert itself was great. Band was good and Loggins & Messina were relaxed and playing comfortably. I was especially impressed that they didn't bring in a slew of extra musicians to sweeten their sound. Basically it's the same instrumentation that they toured with back in their hey-day. Great playing from all.

However, I have a BIG complaint about video production. The constant camera switching made the video almost unwatchable. There seemed to be no shot that lasted for more than 2-3 seconds before it switched to another camera. (It was especially bad during the song "Be Free".)

So, while the music was very good, the DVD suffered badly because of some overzealous producer who clearly didn't have an understanding of how to edit a concert video. I give it a three.

I haven't seen the DVD yet, but I will pre-order it.

We attended this concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl and it was just perfect. Their energy and both of their voices were as good as ever. The song selection, visual backgrounds, and all the musicians were excellent and most of the songs sounded pretty much as you remember them. I was thrilled that they played "Be Free"; it sounded different live, yet the vocal was the same. A very satisfying concert in a beautiful setting.

If you are a Loggins and Messina fan, I think you will be very happy with this performance.

Saw the concert at the Oakdale in Connecticut 7/20 with my daughter so I was eager to see the DVD... ordered two. Being a musician and a Jim Messina guitar nut, I couldn't wait to poor over every detail of the DVD. After viewing several times you start to notice some of the post production overdubs and polishing. Some being blatent. You'll hear a few buzz rolls from the drummer when the sticks aren't even hitting the drums, you'll see Jimmy's fingers playing notes on the guitar that were pulled out of the mix, other times notes are added that he isn't playing, the fiddle player mysteriously plays notes while his right hand is at his side etc. Other times the lips just don't match the sound. This DVD sounds so good that it makes me wonder what is live and what is Memorex. All that said, you just can't help but love this DVD. Great songs, great sound, great video production. One of the best vocal pairings the big guy ever put together. I hope there will be new music from them in the future.
