Product Description

When it comes to combining a soulful, romantic nature with an exquisite sense of pop craftsmanship, no one does it better than Smokey Robinson-Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with over 30 Top Forty hits to his name. While countless musical styles have

Amazon.com

For almost two decades--the '60s and the '70s--Smokey Robinson was a Motown king of songwriting and performance, first with the Miracles, later as a solo artist. This relatively featureless DVD (which offers only a concert performance with no extras) captures a 1990 concert performance by Robinson in an Atlantic City showroom, featuring a full orchestra behind him, as well as a pair of backup singers. What it reveals is a performer who still knows his craft, even if his sweet, high voice is lower and raspier these days. Yet when he starts singing the hits--"Tears of a Clown," "Tracks of My Tears," "Shop Around," "I Second That Emotion," "Ooh Baby Baby"--you begin to understand why Robinson is ranked right up there with the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland in the songwriting pantheon of Motown history. And, at the end, when he sings a medley of songs (concluding with "Tracks of My Tears") accompanied only by spare electric guitar, you get a true sense of the power of his material. --Marshall Fine

I bought both Standing Room Only and Superstars of Love. The problem I experienced is probably the same problem everyone else is having. When you type in Shirley Bassey, Standing Room Only pops up, but nothing entitled Superstars of Love. I had to go hunting on the internet to find out it is called Super Estrellas Del Amor. I went back to Amazon, clicked DVD's and once again it was not listed. I then clicked all product, and it came up. Now I know why it is ranked 514,000, and Standing Room Only is ranked 756. People can Find Standing Room Only, but for some reason Amazon has buried Super Estrellas Del Amor. They are both great product, one has a DVD plus a CD, and one has a DVD. One has 6 live concert songs on DVD, plus Demis Roussos and Matt Monro, and the other has 10 live concert songs of Shirley Bassey.
The one with the DVD and CD is less expensive than Standing Room Only, so perhaps this is why they have it hidden. I do not know!
Buy Standing Room Only- it is classic Bassey. Then type in Super Estrellas Del Amor, and buy that DVD/CD package that includes 5 songs on the CD that you will never ever hear on any other Bassey Package, plus you get 6 live concert songs on the DVD, as well as a bunch of songs from Demis Roussos and Matt Monro.
I hope this is helpful to all the fans that Love Shirley Bassey as much as I do, and I certainly hope Universal Music gets their act together. The Super Estrellas Del Amor should be in the top 100 on Amazon, not at 514,000! I did not even know they had 514,000 titles. I am impressed.

This DVD was delayed in its release for some reason, but we are glad to have it. Material on the "Chairman of the Board of the Blues" is getting a bit hard to find. B.B. has had some recent releases such as "By Request" and "The Jazz Channel Presents" but they show an older, slower player who is still delightful, but not the man we have seen over the years.

This set is fantastic. B.B. is standing during the entire performance and he has the tight fantastic band he toured with for about 15 years. It features many great musicians including the dancing trumpet player (James Bolin) and excellent bass player (Michael Doster) and his nephew Walter King as the Musical Director. The show was filmed in Atlantic City in the early 1990s at the Trump Hotel. B.B. is in great form and goes through a selection of his most famous tunes such as "Why I Sing The Blues","Paying The Cost To Be the Boss", "Let The Good Times Roll" and "The Thrill is Gone". And also some less known ones such as "I'll Still Be Around" and "I'm A Poor Man But I'm A Good Man (an old Delta tune)".

This DVD is a must for Blues lovers. B.B. is now over 80 and this concert along with "Live At Nick's" and "Blues Master: Performances" are just about his best filmed work. His most interesting set is "Live In Africa" with a colossal Big Band (0ver 30 pieces) and Larry Carlton on second guitar. His interpretation of "Sweet Sixteen", to me, is B.B.'s best ever filmed tune. I have a rare clip from VHS of B.B. doing "Don't Cut Your Hair" at the Cafe au GoGo in NY in the 1960s-I wish we could get that one! Also his original TV performance on Jazz Casual PBS in the US is very worthwhile.

Format: DVD
This is one of my favorite dvds. Grover is in fine form here, he plays most of his hits. It's obviously kind of old, but if you're familiar with Grover you won't be disaippointed. The rest of the band gave him great support & the man did his thing. I don't know what that other reviewer was talking about. If you want to hear straight ahead jazz, this isn't for you. But, Grover's playing is a cut above the current class of so called "smooth jazz". You could say he started the genre. He had the chops a jazz cat, but chose to play music that more people would enjoy & feel. I get it. I feel it. This is good stuff. I just hope there's more of him on dvd. I saw him live 3 times. Truly a legend.

This is classic Bassey and don't believe anyone who says otherwise. Balletboy - interesting comments about her voice in this concert. The BBC special with the hydraulic lift was actually 8 years AFTER this DVD so you can rest assured, her voice is not gone. Having just seen her perform live in June 2006 at Wembley Arena, she's better than ever now.

Frankly, I didn't expect much from this DVD release, since it was priced so inexpensively. But what a nice surprise to discover what must be one of B.B.'s better live shows! The sound is superb and the camerawork was great. B.B. was obviously in top form on the date this show was recorded ('90 or '91, I'm guessing). He sounds really good and has a very talented band, too. It's obvious that the audience was happy to become a part of the show on several of the tracks. Even if you're not a B.B. King fan, you should enjoy this concert.
