Editorial Reviews

Natalie Merchant got her start at age 17 as the lead singer of the folk-pop outfit 10,000 Maniacs. Her silken voice and outspoken social awareness wooed music fans and cemented her status as one of the day's most astute and captivating artists. Though 10,000 Maniacs achieved a level of critical success as a major-label act in the mid-80's, Merchant decided to go it alone in 1994. Since then her popularity has bloomed in the wake of Tigerlily, Ophelia, Motherland, Live in Concert: Natalie Merchant and The House Carpenter's Daughter. Featured here are the hits in an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting.

If you have had the privilege of witnessing a Natalie Merchant show live, you understand the energy that the woman conveys in her performances.

This priced just right release is the perfect gift for the 10,000 Maniacs or Natalie Merchant fan. I have this DVD and think it's great. Natalie opens the set with a short version of These Are Days (the full length performance is also included on the set). Her Storytellers segment is more musical than stories as she alternates between performances with high lighting to other performances with low lighting to set the mood. Remember, Storytellers is a one hour show, so don't expect outfit changes and real extended versions of the song. The bonus tracks on the DVD are the full performance of "These Are Days," and "Life is Sweet." Another bonus is that you can choose your audio setting and choose the music only setting. It's a great intimate setting and the set list is okay. Personally, I would have loved to see Natalie sing "Like The Weather," or "Trouble Me," since a few songs from her 10,000 Maniacs days made the set list, but oh well. It's great though and one thing I thought was cool is on the back of the booklet included inside of the set is a Natalie Merchant discography as well as a VH-1 Storytellers Timeline.

If you have had the privilege of witnessing a Natalie Merchant show live, you understand the energy that the woman conveys in her performances. It is difficult to capture Natalie perfect in any recording capacity. There are many bootleg video performances of Ms Merchant floating around with appalling quality that are being gobbled up by her loyal followers. Storytellers is filmed in an intimate setting with top notch quality. Her voice is at the best of it's game here and her warmth and caring are conveyed. She somehow breaks the third wall and transcends the screen when she starts to inform how/why "What's The Matter Here" was written. Next, the audience glimpses a lighter side as Natalie explains "Kind and Generous". N'Dea Davenport appears as a special guest and joins Natalie and her band to sing "Break Your Heart".

For the longer fans of Natalie Merchant and 10,000 Maniacs, the "whirling dervish" is not apparent, she has grown and takes us on this odyssey with her. Some might fault her for not playing a particular 10KM song, but lets face it, this was just a one hour show and it is NATALIE MERCHANT STORYTELLERS, aka VH1's version of UnPlugged. There is no fault that she excluded some of the better known 10KM songs, the three she DOES perform are the ones she often does so when she is live in concert. If you would like to see a more "energetic" Natalie flying around the stage, I recommend the dvd "Natalie Merchant Live in Concert". In that one she kicks off her shoes and just tears into the stage, classic Natalie style. In Storytellers, unlike her live in concert video, you get to SEE her perform "Life Is Sweet". This in itself is a treat.

Natalie's albums are masterpieces. You can really get into her music by listening to them. BUT, to get the FULL experience, you MUST see her perform live!!

I have seen her in concert a dozen or so times, and she has made me laugh, cry, and wisked me away to a place of pure peace and contentment with the beauty of her voice, and the emotion she conveys. When she sings live, her stage presence is POWERFUL. She mesmorizes me. This DVD is another opportunity to see the BEST----Mrs. Natalie Merchant. Don't miss it. You get to hear her tell the story behind each song. Her performance of "Verdi Cries" is particularly beautiful.

No one can sing like her, and no one can move me the way she does.

Video and sound are clear and crisp. This is pure Natalie: sweet, soulful, melodious. There are two viewing options. In one she "Tells a Story" then sings, tells another story, sings. In option two you can bypass the stories. I can not improve on the other reviews. If you enjoy Natalie this is truly a must have.

In this video you will learn the secrets of Ringo's biggest songs told in Ringo's own humourous style. This video is a must for fans of Ringo, The Beatles and good rock music in general. It doesn't get much better than this this video.

Natalie has to be the most divine voice of our times. It never ceases to amaze me how effortlessly she sings. She has subtly re-interpreted her classics and honestly for the first time, I understood why she wrote these songs. Natalie's fans will definitely enjoy the subtle variations. The cello and violin ensemble definitely stirs the soul. The sound recording is decent (I listen to only 2 channels), although the imaging (soundstage) was constant even though the picture moved. I guess there is only so much you can do when the stage is small and intimate. All in all - highly recommended whether you are new to Natalie Merchant or an ardent fan.

The only difference I see between Natalie and Van Gogh is that one paints and the other writes and sings. Both are able to see the world for what it is and express it in their own special way. Sensitive, caring and lovely Natalie has the ability to express the beauty she sees in the world like Van Gogh paints a sunflower. In this DVD she tells us the genesis of each of the songs she performs. I love her style and I love her way, she's someone VERY special. I can't recommend this DVD enough. Natalie, may you continue to "paint" your beauty for many years to come.
