Editorial Reviews

Grammy and Emmy Award winner Cyndi Lauper burst onto the world stage as the quintessential girl who just wanted to have fun. After more than 25 sterling years and global record sales in excess of 30 million, she has proven that she has the heart and soul to keep her legion of fans compelled by her every creative move. With her Grammy-nominated Memphis Blues, the best selling Blues album of 2010, Cyndi firmly asserts her position as one of the most beguiling, innovative and downright exciting recording artists of this and ever other generation. To Memphis With Love, due out on October 25th, serves as Cyndi s love letter to the Blues and the city with which she has fallen in love. Featuring Allen Toussaint, Tracy Nelson and Jonny Lang, this DVD introduces her audience to Blues superstars and their music.

In 1985, Cyndi won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and became the first female artist to have five top-10 singles from a debut album. Along the way she has continuously won accolades as a singer, musician, actress, and writer. She has been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards, 2 Emmy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 7 American Video Awards, and 18 MTV Awards.

Great video and sound quality!

The DVD contains some rehearsal footage and backstage banter and you can hear Lauper's well known squeaky (almost "Betty Boop-line") voice.

Back in the 80s, I made a mix tape highlighting two of my favorite singers, the great--though much neglected--Tracy Nelson and a then "promising newcomer" named Cyndi Lauper. Why I saw any kind of link between the two would have been hard to explain. Lauper may have been new on the scene, but she was already something of a pop phenomenon. Nelson had been in the business for close to 20 years at that point and, at best, remained something of a cult figure. And Nelson was very much of a traditionalist, musically--her tastes eclectic certainly, but her arrangemets never too far remove from basic American roots music. Lauper's first record was glossy and synth laden, well done but not really what you might call trad.

But both singers were capable of packing an emotional wallop, and ultimately, that's what counts (at least as far as I was concerned). I labeled the cassette "TraCYndi" and played to it til it it was stretched to the point of unlistenability. So you can imagine how surprised and delighted I was last year when I learned that Cyndi Lauper had recorded a blues album (MEMPHIS BLUES) and had spotlighted Tracy Nelson's signature song "Down So Low." I felt, well, vindicated and, if I might be allowed a little self-congratulation, kind of prescient, actually.

It's actually not all that surprising that Cyndi would be aware of Tracy's music. She was a musically aware urban teen, catching all the great blues and rock acts at the Fillmore East. And like so many young people who came of age in the late 60s and early 70s, she was wide open to just about everything.

The sound quality on this DVD is not just good, it's almost too good. What Cyndi Lauper and her team seem to have chosen is to record each of the instruments at the live performance directly, then studio mixed the sound so that there's never a vocal fallout of a screechingly loud horn moment or whatever. The sound is beautifully modulated, so much so that it sounds too good to be live, if that makes sense.

At first, I must admit I was taken aback by it in a not-so-positive way. Then a few songs in I got used to it. By the end it almost seemed innovative. Every artist mixes their studio albums for perfect balance, so why not do the same for a live recording?

When you watch a live concert on video you have a certain expectation about the sound quality. This DVD will definitely surpass your expectation. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to you.

Great video and sound quality! Saw this tour at the House of Blues in Dallas; this disc is like a front row seat.

A few years ago former Kweskin Jug Band vocalist, Maria Muldaur (remember her breakout single "Midnight at the Oasis"?) turned out three tribute CDs paying honor to the great women blues singers. And all were terrific. Pop diva Cyndi Lauper is doing something similar here with the DVD/CD project. Recorded in a Memphis club in early 2011 - as a follow-up to her 2010 blues CD, Lauper held control over the project. You'll note that the DVD is subtitled "A Film By Cyndi Lauper". She called in some big names to add some power to her band - Allen Toussaint and Charlie Musslewhite - and holds her own on stage. The DVD contains some rehearsal footage and backstage banter and you can hear Lauper's well known squeaky (almost "Betty Boop-line") voice. But when she starts to sing she really does sound a lot like Muldaur. There's CD in the package too so you can just enjoy the music away from your TV.

The camera work is first rate and the image on the Standard DVD was sharp and clear on my 32-year old TV! While much of the show are blues numbers, Lauper includes a few of her pop hits - "She Bop" and the Robert Hazard-penned "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - which some may feel are out of place but I enjoyed hearing in the "Memphis clothes".

There are two "bonus" features as well. Both are studio performances of blues classics ""Wild Women Don't Have The Blues" and "Crossroads".

I wonder what genre the multi-faceted Lauper will explore next?

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

I have followed Cyndi's career since the 80's... I have seen her perform in different venues (large and small) several times over the years. She does a great job with whatever material she sings. Cyndi sounds great on this DVD (and her backing band is excellent, too). The lady can really sing the Blues... and she looks great doing it, too. Highly recommended.
