Editorial Reviews

The Crusaders were one of the pioneers of Jazz-Funk music in the seventies and have made a number of visits to Montreux over the years. This DVD focuses on their performance from 2003 when the band was touring in support of their album "Rural Renewal". Founder members Joe Sample and Wilton Felder were joined in the line-up by long-standing friend Ray Parker Jr. on guitar and by the inimitable Randy Crawford on vocals. They delivered a set that spanned their career from early days up to their latest album capped with a stunning nine minute plus performance of their classic "Street Life" and finished off with a fun rendition of Ray Parker Jr's "Ghostbusters".

TRACK LISTING 1) Spiral 2) Viva De Funk 3) Creepin' 4) Way Back Home 5) Carnival Of The Night 6) Put It Where You Want It 7) Thrill Is Gone 8) Soul Shadows (with Randy Crawford) 9) Street Life (with Randy Crawford) 10) Imagine (with Randy Crawford) 11) Rural Renewal 12) Ghostbusters

Format:DVD
This is a fine concert, I can't add anything that all the other reviews have stated so nicely...EXCEPT...the import version of this concert includes a 20 minute live Crusaders show from the late 70's, and features (then) Crusaders guitarist Larry Carlton, which includes a live version of "Spiral". Great stuff! There is very little live stuff on Carlton from that period and the Crusaders sound much more inspired in that footage, I must say!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME December 16, 2008
Format:DVD
I RECENTLY PURCHASED TWO OF THIS DVD FOR CHRISTMAS. LAST SATURDAY, I GOT THE URGE AND PLAYED IT. I WAS HOPING TO HOLD OUT UNTIL CHRISTMAS. ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS SET IS OFF THE HOOK BIG TIME. I THOUGHT I WAS BACK AT MORGAN STATE UNIV. CIRCA 1974. THE SOUND AND VISUAL QUALITY IS
SUPREME. THE NEW CRUSADERS ARE SMOKING. WILTON FELDER ALONE MADE MY SAT.
EVENING. READY FREDDY WASHINGTON IS ALWAYS STEADY AND FUNKY. JOE SAMPLE.(ENOUGH SAID) EVERYTHING WAS TIGHT AND FUNKY AND WHEN MISS CRAWFORD
HIT THE STAGE,ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CONCERT IN MONTREAUX WAS THE UNDERRATED AND MASTERFUL RAY PARKER JR. THAT'S RIGHT MR.
GHOSTBUSTER AND RAYDIO LEADER WAS FANTASTIC. A MUST HAVE FOR ALL MUSIC LOVERS. I WAS TELLING A FRIEND THAT CASINO LIGHTS WAS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE DVD; IT NOW HAS SOME SERIOUS COMPETITION.

The audio and video quality are very good on this dvd. The video looks almost like a bluray dvd and it sounds great too. If you love jazz and some of the Crusader's favorite old songs, I strongly recommend this dvd. I love it .......... i've watched it over & over.

WOW!!! Joe Sample was awesome along with ray parker and the rest of the band, new sounds and old grooves set the crusaders apart from all the rest. Jazz at it's best the sound was great randy crawford voice is as strong as ever, just wish it had more songs from rural renewal cd.

I purchased both the Crusaders Gold CD and this DVD of the Crusaders at Montreux 2003. The members look like myself - getting older - but the fabulous sound is still there.

I was expecting something more but the songs and the way they played them just seemed to lag on and on, some first class sidemen but I got bored after awhile. Read more
