5.0 out of 5 stars Memphis Soul Fans' Delight! October 5, 2007
By J. Bode
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Holy Grail has surfaced at last! If you are reading this, you love Memphis Soul, so what are you waiting for! Buy this disc! The packaging is great, with a nice booklet of over a dozen pages written by the author of Soulville. Considering this is old black and white footage and that one cannot undo poor camera choices (such as ridiculous rapid zooming in and out during one Sam and Dave song), the quality is quite good. The edits done to preserve continuity are essentially seamless and never detract from the program. Sometimes the microphones are overdriven a bit, but there is nothing that can be done about that now, and it isn't that bad. So, from a technical and packaging standpoint, very, very good.
The performances are way cool. Booker T and the MG's and the Mar Kays warm things up and it is great to have some time to focus on their talents. Arthur Conley perfoms "Midnight Hour" with co-author Steve Cropper, which is kind of neat, but I really enjoy his second performance even more. Eddie Floyd's perfomance is brief and fairly good. When Sam & Dave are introduced, the show really takes off and the band steps it into high gear. I personally purchased this just to have a chance to realize a dream - seeing Sam & Dave perform. They do not disappoint! To me, their 4 songs (one is slightly abbreviated) are the highlight of the show. We have all seen Otis and know how amazing he is, but footage of Sam & Dave is unheard of. I suspect many of you, like me, were more curious about this aspect than the Otis portion of the show, because we all know Otis will deliver, and he does. All one need say is that Otis performs and you know it is great. Still, my personal highlight is "When Something is Wrong With My Baby" by Sam and Dave. Watch the funny interaction between Duck Dunn and Dave. The band is incredible all the way through. I was still on the edge of my seat the second time through the show! If you love Stax, this might move you to tears! BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like soul music? BUY THIS DVD! October 11, 2007
Format:DVD
I cannot believe my good fortune to have stumbled across this DVD. It may very well be Soul perfection. At the very least it's a shining testament to some of the finest musicians ever to pick up their respective instruments.

As noted in other reviews, the sound quality is not perfect. On brief occasions there is some distortion, mostly due to overdriven mics. And there are a few changes in volume that are noticeable. But frankly, this is just me being overly critical for your benefit. In general, and considering the era in which this was recorded, the sound is well done. One of the key elements of the Stax/Volt sound is the wonderful bass lines, and Donald "Duck" Dunn's bass comes through strong and warm.

The video quality is about what you'd expect from 1967. There are a few glitches, but no major issues. If you remember watching B&W television in the late 60's, it may actually be nostalgic. However you will come to loathe the moments during Sam & Dave's "Soothe Me", when the camerapeople decide to show off their new zoom lenses. Luckily the motion-sickness inducing camera work only lasts about 25-30 seconds. Don't worry, just close your eyes at about 39:45 and let the music carry you away for 30 seconds.

And the music will carry you away. The show is perfectly paced, starting off with the instrumental groups and concluding with a scorching performance by Otis Redding. Booker T. & the MGs (Booker T. Jones on organ, Steve "the Colonel" Cropper on guitar, Donald "Duck" Dunn on bass, and the incomparable Al Jackson, Jr. on drums) start off the show, and are then joined by the horn section (Wayne Jackson on trumpet, Andrew Love and Joe Arnold on tenor sax) to form the Mar-Keys. This ensemble then serves as the band for the rest of the show.

3.0 out of 5 stars An important document, but the records are better. December 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of the music put out by the Stax/Volt machine. The nine-volume CD set with all the singles they released from 1959-1968 has been among my favorite things to listen to for years. I had read about the great success of the 1967 European tour, and it was surely a high period for all of the artists involved, so when I saw this DVD available, I knew within two seconds that I was going to buy it.

It is an interesting historical document of an important moment in pop music history. Musically, though, I have to say that the singles themselves are more compelling. The chief problem here is the fact that the musicians believed that everything needed to be played faster live. They even talk about this in the interviews. They wanted to give it an extra kick, stir up the audience almost to a frenzy, if possible. They certainly do deliver energized, frenetic performances. But, faster is not always better. In almost every song here, they deprive the music of the space it needs to breathe. Artistically, the evening was more or less a failure. The magic you can hear on the Stax records is just not present here. At least to my ears.

This is still recommended for big fans of Stax/Volt, but they probably don't need my help to realize that. Otherwise, check out the original records first. They are superb.

Great sound, great performances, and of course, an all-star line up. The only complaint I have is that it was too short. Sam and Dave steal the show.
