MM is backed up by an outstanding band and singers. I really enjoyed the performances. On his own songs with the Doobie Brothers, I felt he performed them better on this DVD than on the Doobies -- Wildlife Concert, which happened to be a really great performance. He is also backed up by Ashford and Simpson on the Motown songs.
I thought the sound quality was very good; I had no problems with it.
If you're a MM fan, you will really like this DVD! It is a great sampler of some of his best songs with the Doobies, his solo hits in the 80's and the Motown songs. If you want just one music DVD of MM's songs, this is the one to get.
Imagine my suprise when I discovered the DVD out a few weeks prior to the airing of the program. I sat back and waited to be knock over --but -- oopps -- the first couple of songs left me scratching my head (no hair) and wondering which concert Ben had seen.
It took the dynamic duo of Ashford and Simpson - taking the stage with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to start the wheels a turning in my head - "Hey - this might be OK afterall."
When Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons arrive along with a kick ass new guitar star - things really take off.
Always steady - the Sound Stage crew delivers a top notch program - both audio and video - now produced by Steve Dahl - keep up the good work Steve!
Definitely a keeper - have listened now at least twice a week!
The DVD is worth it, to me, just to be able to hear Michael's live version of his Doobies hit, "It Keeps You Runnin'," a completely different take on that song.
Other highlights include having guests like Ashford & Simpson singing along on the Motown classics and Michael's new versions of them, as well as bringing out Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons to play some Doobies songs.
I've seen Michael and his band play live for the past five or six years. With the smash success of his MOTOWN CDs, the crowds have gotten bigger and the band has become a little harder to get to after shows--but I'm thrilled for all of them.
Everyone has been gracious and incredibly nice, and I've heard nothing but great things about McD.
A super talent with a genuine affection for great music.
Michael gives a very soulful performance, and his band keeps a good balance by holding the groove when the music requires it, and pumping out hard energy when it needs it.
This is a great DVD. You won't be disappointed.
Someone said something about the sound quality being poor. I can only say that that person must not have a system to run it on. On my (somewhat old) 5.1 system, this concert was as potent as the original concert. If you're running decent equipment, you won't be disappointed.
This was the first concert that I played on my new 42" TV. The video quality need make no apologies, either. When combined with the sound, I thought I was in Best Buy watching this on a $5000 system!
As for the content, what can you say? It's Michael Mc Donald singing both the Doobie hits, and the Motown remasteries. A visit from Nick and Valerie -- ba da bing! Great concert (albeit short).
It's a great "come over and watch" concert for singles; and a good "hey hunny" to spring on your spouse. Highly recommended!
I will be buying two more of these DVDs as gifts to friends.
