Editorial Reviews

Suzanne Vega broke through with her eponymous debut album in 1985 in both Europe and America. The album featured the hits Marlene On The Wall and Left Of Center. She hit even greater heights with her second album Solitude Standing, which contained the hits Luka and Tom’s Diner. In many ways, she opened the way for the rush of female singer-songwriters that followed in the late eighties and early nineties. She continues to have hit albums and to play to packed houses on both sides of the Atlantic.

This DVD/CD captures Suzanne Vega making her second appearance at the Montreux Festival in 2004. Accompanied by a full band (her first appearance was as a duo), she plays many of her most popular tracks including 99.9Fº, Marlene On The Wall, When Heroes Go Down, Left Of Center, Solitude Standing, Blood Makes Noise, Luka and Tom’s Diner.

Stop! If you don't have the Mothership Connection DVD, I highly recommend buying it first. Perhaps I'm too old school but, in my opinion, the Mothership Connection DVD captures PFunk at their peak and the Live At Montreux DVD captures PFunk as they are now. That said, if you already have the Mothership Connection DVD, the Live At Montreux DVD compliments it nicely and both are must haves for your PFunk collection. Live At Montreux has outstanding performances and it captures everything that you expect to see/hear when you go to a PFunk concert nowadays. However, my favorite part of the Live At Montreux DVD are the bonus tracks. It is worth buying the Live At Montreux DVD if only for Bernie Worrell's synth solo and Michael Hampton's performance of Maggot Brain. Regardless, I must emphasize buying the Mothership Connection DVD first if you don't already have it. I just feel it is a superior concert.

Nile Rogers revamped the group and did a good job,the late Bernard Edwards is missed and so is Tony Thompson, but the new bass player along with Omar Hakim filled in nicely. Chic song all of their hits along with a few other songs that Nile Rogers wrote for other people, this DVD is a must have for disco loving people!!!!

This is the best George Clinton DVD concert to date. I also own the Mothership connection DVD and the Live at the House of Blues DVD, and this one tops them both. There was probably a little less emphasis on the guitarists than I'm used to, but the vocalists, arrangements, new musicians, intensity and the return of Bernie Worrel more than made up for that. As usual, the seamless flow of one mode into another was matchless. Without much fanfare, the entire personnel on stage could change in a moment. Even the MC got to get himself "some" on the P-Funk rendition of "A Whole Lotta Shakin'" which literally rocked. The female vocalist were fine and appropriately nasty, as were their predecessors, Lynn Mabry and Dawn Silva. The electric violin version of "Maggot Brain" will be talked about for years to come. The show is constantly changing as it remains the same as in "Look out here I come, right back where I started from."

Suzanne Vega Live At Montreax 2004 is a must if you like Suzanne Vega. She is in good form, looks healthy, tries to include the audience in her performance and the song selection is well chosen. She makes a brave attempt to cover The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes." The only weakness seems to be her band (particularly the bassist) sometimes seem to over power her vocal. The best moments are are when Suzanne solos or plays with just one band member or when her guitar is the dominate insturment.

A great come back from Nile Rodgers and Chic in this DVD. Splendid presentation. New musicians and singers but the sound is the same, unmistakable. The hands of Nile on guitar still play with the magic of the 70'S. What a show . It's an essential DVD to fans of the disco era.

We've waited a long time for Suzanne to put out a concert video, and this one does not disappoint. I've seen her live 3 times, and she is a captivating performer. On this DVD, Suzanne seems a bit detached from the Montreaux audience, and I think the chemistry might have been better with a U.S. audience. But even so, the intimacy is there.

The sound is very good (thanks DTS 5.1), but not great like the West 54th Sessions concert. I really wish they would put that entire performance on DVD (& every other Session @ West 54th for that matter). Suzanne's band has always been top notch. They're cool when they need to be, and they can rock when they need to. I'm especially enamored of bass player Mike Visceglia. He lays down some of the coolest bass lines i've ever heard.... and looks cool doing it!

This concert DVD is a real treat. Suzanne looks and sounds wonderful, and delivers a great performance. Some things could have been done better, but I still give it 5 stars.
