Amy Winehouse scored a UK hit with 2003's Frank, but her follow-up is another story. Released in 2007, Back to Black blew up worldwide. So, the bouffant belter took her soulful show on the road. It turned out to be a short trip; after only a few dates, she canceled her North American tour due to "severe exhaustion." Fortunately, I Told You I Was Trouble captures the petite powerhouse before personal problems sidelined her for the rest of the year. Recorded live at London's Shepherd's Bush, Winehouse and nine-piece ensemble, including two smooth-moving back-up singers, blast through 13 originals and four covers, including the Zutons' "Valerie" and the Specials' "Hey Little Rich Girl." Vivacious voice aside, Winehouse looks uncomfortable at times, alternately awkward and endearing. Yes, she drinks, but insecurity appears to be as much to blame as (possible) inebriation, though she does loosen up after awhile. And there's some good stuff here, especially the Ronettes-inspired "Back to Black" and "Rehab." As her albums attest, Winehouse is one of the decade's most electrifying artists, but the stage may not be the best showcase for her abilities--not yet, at any rate. While I Told You I Was Trouble isn't the triumph it could've been, it isn't a train wreck either. The informative 50-minute documentary features interviews with Winehouse, her proud papa, and the A&R representative who signed her to Island Records. One of the lady’s more interesting revelations: "The more insecure I get, the bigger my hair has to be." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Already hailed as one of the decade's top live performers, Amy gives us fair warning with the devilishly titled I Told You I Was Trouble. The DVD features as its centerpiece a rollicking and emotive 60 minute concert performance filmed live from London's 104 year old Sheperd's Bush Empire. For Amy Winehouse fans, I Told You I Was Trouble also serves up a potpourri of bonus material including a 50 minute film chronicling her incredible rise as one of music's most colorful and acclaimed new voices; never-before-seen early performances; an interview with her father, and other rare, behind the scenes glimpses of the British siren. Showcasing her hit songs from her UK debut release Frank and the international platinum-plus release Back To Black (recently passing the 3 million sales milestone worldwide), the concert from Sheperd's Bush features "You Know I'm No Good," "Tears Dry On Their Own", Amy's cover of the Zuton's "Valerie", and her Billboard topping hit "Rehab," among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate representation November 18, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This certainly is an accurate capturing of Amy Winehouse in concert. She's a bit tipsy, her between songs banter with the crowd is all at once funny, charming and rambling. She seems to lose her train of thought a time or two, but when she sings, there is no denying the magic and power of her voice. Her wonderful backing band does a stellar job throughout and the home turf of London makes for a very appreciative and supportive crowd.

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!

Format:DVD
Not since Madonna appeared on the music radar has an artist captivated my eye, ear, and heart the way Ms. Winehouse has. I realize they are worlds apart musically, but the presence and panache that they both exhibit are what makes me draw the parallel. Amy has the f-you attitude that Madonna had when she was starting out. She seems more concerned with doing her thing than warming up to those who would criticize her. Her delivery comes across as spontaneous, her in-between ramblings as extemporaneous--without any thought or concern for what people will think. Madonna was never this natural or uncalculated, but just as brash. And then there is that voice...like Etta James, Billie Holliday, Bettye LaVette, and all The Supremes rolled into one beautiful confection--chased with a shot of Tequila. Just listen to "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", and "You Know I'm No Good" and you will see an artiste/icon in the making. I hope and pray that her time in treatment will bring her back to the road she should be ruling. It would be a great tragedy for her to fall prey to the same habits that have robbed us of so many of our greatest talents. Don't let the reviews that talk about her supposed drunkenness dissuade you from buying this dvd--she may be tipsy, but she stays on top of her game, and lets the songs speak very clearly for themselves. The documentary is fascinating--with her demo performance included alongside observations from her fans, a record label exec (very articulate in respecting her awe inspiring talent) and her father (charming in his own way). One suggestion: Turn the subtitles on during the documentary to catch all that Amy (who speaks very fast in a heavy British accent--one of the reasons people always think she's drunk) has to say.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny of the $7.99! November 15, 2007
By JRL
Format:DVD
Not quite sure why no one's reviewed this item yet of everyone's favorite tabloid car-crash...It appears this DVD was taped in May of 2007 (had trouble verifying the date)...And it's interesting simply to watch Winehouse when she AND HER VOICE are actually in really good form. She and her stellar band of course play all the songs off Back To Black, a couple 1st LP tracks, a couple B-side covers, along with a snippet of Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop (That Thing)...She's charming, random, self-deprecating and actually quite funny between songs--at times. She's mostly loose and lucid as opposed to being drunk or too drugged up to perform...Sound quality and performance top notch...The documentary bonus (50 minutes) is nice but not too enlightening...Still worth a watch...Wish they'd had more in-the-studio footage, and that her performance was a little more varied...Only other criticism is of the few unnecessary times the camera would pan to her husband in the audience. Oh well...Overall very, very good!

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 stars February 7, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Geee-I think I wore the grooves out of the dvd. As a musician,
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy's a great new talent! February 19, 2008
By S. WAN
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First of all, Amy is NOT wasted in this concert! Obviously, many of you don't know about her or her style! If you watch this DVD, she is totally in control. In fact, in some cuts, she's seen telling the band what to do next or to keep going....Her style is unusual and her accent is from a certain part of London which isn't very discernible for americans....and would seem like she wasn't all there.I love her lazy, jazzy, retro way around a me;ody. This DVD is great! Besides the concert, there is a nice documentary on her story.....The sound quality is very good...esp. on DTS....enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Talent December 10, 2007
Format:DVD
This live performance is proof of what an original and gifted artist Amy Winehouse truly is. It's amazing to think what an impact she's made at such a young age. The documentary is a wonderful bonus. The scene of her singing "(There Is) No Greater Love" for the record company in 2002 is unforgettable. This is a must have for any Amy Winehouse fan. You'll love her even more after seeing it.
