I thouroughly enjoyed the hour long documentary "I Told You I Was Trouble." Some great behind the scenes footage of her younger days, never before seen performances--even a very early showcase inside her record company's offices. If you are a fan of Miss Amy, you will greatly enjoy this DVD. Well worth the price!
this is one of the best recordings on dvd of one of the tightest
bands in music.If you spiced out Ms. Winehouse, the band alone
would be worth the dvd. Her voice, on the other hand, is
one of the greatest amalgams of hip hop, dinah washington, and motown
.You can hear all the influences, but unlike so many, she comes out
with her own awkward, unusually beautiful style.
IMO- Just one of the most soulful, and original female
singers to come by perhaps since janis joplin.10 stars if was able.
It's said that everything is recycled, but the basic human endeavor/imperative is such that each artist, although an amalgam of what may have gone before, can stop time by focusing their individual filter and thus make a brand new reality. Amy did that with her voice, her ability to connect to her audience, her sharp sense of songwriting and, maybe most dangerously, her willingness to share what must have been raw and painful events set to music. Most of us can forget or re-write those times, and thus be saved by our own mediocrity. She apparently didn't give herself that bit of grace, and even selected songs from other writers sharing hopelessness along those same poetic lines. Singing these stories night after night was no cathartic exercise; it was pain on display the way people will slow down to view victims of a car accident. The differences were the originality of her voice and the honesty of her words.
Nonetheless, this disc also gives a clue about how powerful Amy would've become had she granted herself the perspective of a survivor believing in love, with a heart made all the more precious for the battered scars sustained in growth. There will be other singers, but her brief time here will be remembered. Thanks for the legacy, Miss Amy.
