Product Description

Toto's "25th Anniversary Live in Amsterdam" is a musical celebration of the band's career. It was shot live at the Heineken Arena, in Amsterdam on February 25th, 2003.

TOTO released its self-titled debut album in 1978, which hit the Top 10, sold two-million copies, and spawned the gold Top 10 single "Hold the Line." The gold-selling Hydra and Turn Back were not so triumphant, but Toto IV was a multi-platinum Top Ten hit, featuring the number-one hit "Africa" and the Top Tens "Rosanna, (about Rosanna Arquette) and "I Won't Hold You Back." At the 1982 Grammys, "Rosanna" became the award-winning Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Instrumental Arrangement with Vocal; and Toto IV won awards for Album of the Year, Best Engineered Recording, and Best Producer.

Toto may be past its prime as a multi-platinum recording band, but Live in Amsterdam offers abundant proof that their performances are as electrifying as ever. Recorded in Amsterdam's Heineken Music Hall on February 17, 2003, near the end of Toto's 25th anniversary world tour, this dynamic concert serves as a cheerful reminder that Toto have been alive and well and recording steadily since 1978. The band's 2002 release Through the Looking Glass was an album of covers, two of which are welcomed here: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is a prime showcase for guitarist Steve Lukather, and "Bodhisattva" is a tight, meticulous tribute to Toto's original drummer, the late Jeff Porcaro, and his classic sessions with Steely Dan. The mega-hits "Africa," "Rosanna," and "Hold the Line" are perfectly executed, and in a band full of talented singers, lead vocalist Bobby Kimball sounds better than ever. Two impressive medleys show the band in full gear as a comfortable unit of seasoned professionals, highlighted by impeccable work from keyboardist David Paich, bassist Mike Poracaro, and ace drummer Simon Phillips (who also produced and mixed this recording for DVD). And while 35 minutes of Porcaro's backstage home-video might seem frivolous, it shows a band that's still having fun, as reflected in the beaming smiles of their appreciative Amsterdam audience. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrinkles are beautiful !!! August 2, 2007
Format:DVD
Not much to add to what has already been said at long and at large from this mega band. If you're here, you probably know a lot about them. Even so, I can only recommend you to get this DVD if you don't have it...

Why should I bother, would you say, if I already have several of their records (or even all of them) ? For lots of reasons. First, the sound is amazing. I played this on my system thinking that it would be fine. It's not, it's outstanding. Also, the filming is excellent. No blurry shots, no silly angles, no focus on who isn't playing. The production is irreproachable. Another reason you should get this is the incredible atmosphere surrounding the concert. I was trying to see the people in the crowd, and to my surprise, the people there range from 20 to 50 (and apparently a majority of 30ish). In the States, Toto doesn't get any airplay, doesn't perform much, and they seem to be viewed as fossils, remembrance of the west coast style of the 80's. Not so in Japan or Europe, where they are always welcome and fill in large theaters. Amazing, don't you think ?

On stage, you have Bobby Kimball with the rest of the band and two backup musicians. Bobby is like the rest of the regular members. With wrinkles, but in great shape. What a voice! Simon Phillips is probably second best to Jeff Porcaro, Paich shows he can play anything from classic to blues and funky (we already knew that), Mike Porcaro, even though he's not Verdine White, Stanley Clarke or Mark King, is very passionate in his playing, and Luke is... well, just in case you still wondered, the true leader of the band. Just look at how everyone is positioned. The lead singer is on a second row podium half of the concert and Luke is the one walking around.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOTO - LIVE IN AMSTERDAM DVD November 16, 2003
Format:DVD
I have seen at least one show of every Toto tour since 1986, and for me this captures one of their best. Whilst the hits were necessarily included to appeal to a wider fan base, there is ample album material and new arrangements for musicians and discerning music fans. Toto fanatics and cynics alike can get a flavour of the humour of this band on their own backstage video footage. Even if Toto don't achieve the recognition they deserve in their lifetime's, this DVD will be an excellent testimony to what Eddie Van Halen described as "collectively the best musicians on the planet". Fantastic post-production on both visual and especially the surround sound audio mixes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Sounding Great March 20, 2007
Format:HD DVD
When I first got this I wanted an HD DVD of a concert just to see if the audio was just as great as people said it was. So I popped 'er in and WOW, was I impressed. They still got it. When Bobby Kimball starts singing you know you are in for a ride.

The third song, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, is easily a new favorite. I found myself popping this in just for this one song alone. Watching Lukather rip it up on this track is exciting every time.

It looks awesome for the majority too, especially on the close ups. The only real problem with HD is that I it seems I'm always noticing when the camera goes out of focus. Not a big problem, but can get annoying when you are trying to focus on how amazing the detail is on their shirts or guitar straps.

Overall the sound is great and the visuals just pull you in and you feel like you are actually there. Definitley a must have for any serious Toto fan or anyone who likes good live music.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S ABOUT TIME! September 27, 2003
By pmroy
Format:DVD
Finally, a concert DVD to showcase what a great live band Toto is. Their music always sounds better live to me because it comes across a little more harder and progressive due to some great improvisation by all of the virtuoso band members. Steve Lukather has always been one of my favorite guitarists and this performance demonstrates why. The DTS and Dolby 5.1 surround both sound excellent. The video is crisp and clear, and the camera work was perfect, capturing closeups of solos, as well as various angles of the entire stage show. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY AWESOME MUSICIANSHIP! November 6, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have quite a few live music DVDs and from start to finish, this is one of the best. The musicianship is outstanding on all accounts. Vocals are in the zone. Lukather's guitar work is fantastic, but his bandmates shine as well. The finale of "White Sister" really rocks. The arrangement of "Africa" is excellent. If you like Toto and have a DVD player, especially one with Dolby Digital surround sound, crank it up. This one is well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A full tilt success September 11, 2003
By S. R.
Format:DVD
First of all, Steve Lukather is AMAZING. Any hard rock guitar lover will truly enjoy this effort by the longtime group. Toto always gets a lot of flack because of their handful of radio friendly hits, but the band has always had progressive roots to go along with the couple dozen other styles they all enjoy.... and they wear them all on their sleeves for this concert. Simon Phillips is, as always, KILLER, and Mike Porcaro is a wonderful bassman. The band is extremely tight plowing through song after song making even their more lame radio songs soulfull. Bobby K's tenor voice is powerful and accurate, but gets relegated a bit too much as a background dancer when not singing lead. David Paitch's work is also featured heavily much to my appreciation. This is just a solid, solid concert by one of the best bands most of you probably never heard live. Go get it and be blown away.

why doesnt amazon write detail about Blu ray and HD
You're right because I had Toto on HD-DVD and it had DTS-HD sound and then I sold it and replaced it on Blu-ray and it has just standard DTS.
