Talk about an emotional rollercoaster! One minute into either the audio disc or the companion DVD of this intimate concert recorded at New York's Bowery Ballroom in 2007, and the ride begins. Happiness comes when Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp's corduroy-and-silk vocal blend--wrapped around their tuneful rockin' pop, folk-country songs ("My, Oh My," and "Tennessee")--sound so splendidly organic. Their harmonies sound even more seamlessly hand-in-glove live than in the studio. But there is sadness, too; sadness over the realization that the Wreckers--the first female duo to hit #1 on Billboard's Country chart with their debut single ("Leave the Pieces") in 50 years--have split up to continue their solo careers. What a pity. It's not often one comes across such a natural blend of voices and complementary songwriting skills from Nashville-based female acts. For one of the two new songs on this well-paced set list, they chose "Different Truck, Same Loser," a tune as deep-dish honky tonk as Dwight Yoakam. The other new offering, "Damn That Radio," rocks like a country barnburner. The DVD, which also offers a five-minute interview not available on the CD, shows the two--backed by a tight five-piece band that includes Branch's husband, bassist Teddy Laudau and Harp's fiancé, fiddler Jason Mowery--having a blast onstage; at times sharing a microphone or singing back-to-back a la John Lennon and Paul McCartney. So listen, watch, and wave goodbye to the Wreckers, who now take their own place among the pantheon of bands who wrecked our worlds for an all-too-brief moment, and were gone.-–Alanna Nash

Way Back Home: Live From New York City This dual disc (one CD and one DVD) is a record of their performance at The Bowery Ballroom in NYC. As such, it is a standout, and will stand up to many listenings (some live shows don't). The DVD, with video of the concert is a nice bonus in a two-disc set that sells for little more than a CD alone would. Also included on the DVD is some bonus interview footage giving a snapshot of how the two performers were feeling and approaching their tour. The audio is almost flawless in production (for a live show). Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp simply sound great - beautiful harmonies!, and the musicians they have surrounded themselves with hit the nail on the head in most songs. Some critics have wondered what the heck pop princess Michelle Branch was doing by immersing herself in a duo - after battling to make it as a solo artist - and changing to country pop instead of pop, but as shown on Stand Still, Look Pretty and on this CD/DVD combo, it was indeed a great decision. Country pop (like "real" country music) offers up the possibility of "story songs" that can make an impact on the listener instead of the usual pop song that simply says "ooh baby I want to love you" over and over. With great looks, and great hooks, good writing, and good performances these two women look to be around a long time. The only semi-bad thing I can say about this package is that too many of the songs, no matter how great they are, seem to be in the same tempo. There could be a little more variety, especially for a live show where ebb and flow are paramount to a good show experience. But these girls are young, and I'm sure that will be corrected in due time, perhaps as Michelle begins to write more material, and the two women collaborate more. That's why I'm giving it four stars instead of five.

The Wreckers live from New York City, this dvd turned out to be one of the most pleasant surprises I`ve ever purchased. The seven people in this show all exhibit real musical talent and when performing together equal more than the sum of their parts. The sound quality is excellent, you can hear and feel everything as if you are actually there and that is tied in with a very good full screen picture. This piece is a must have if you enjoy truly good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the few bucks for this ... February 12, 2008
By WHF
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The only "Live" performance on DVD of The Wreckers, that I'm aware of. That right there makes it worth the few bucks to buy it. I enjoy these two gals, Michelle Branch & Jessica Harp. I like their style. I like their sound. It's really unfortunate, I think, that both Michelle & Jessica have decided to part company and go back to their solo works. I found them, together, to be quite entertaining. Their song "Tennessee" (which Jessica wrote) I thoroughly love. This is rather a smaller, more intimate show, here on this DVD. It's not a HUGE production with flashing lights and fireworks shooting all over the place. I've been to both 'types' of shows, many times, both LARGE arenas with pyro-technic treatments galore and smaller, up-close more intimate shows and I have to admit that a lot of these smaller-production, up-close and intimate shows are well worth it. I mean, that's just me. I attend both kinds of shows/concerts but, don't dismiss these smaller shows/venues quite so readily. This DVD is a good example of that. It's not a highly polished production but, sometimes that's what makes it even better.

This is OK. Nothing special mostly just a live recording of "Stand Still,Look Pretty" which is an excellent recording. I have both but if I had to pick one I would opt for the studio recording.

I had a similar CD and it got lost. I wanted to replace it because they sing some great songs that I can relate to. I will continue to listen to this group and buy from this seller.
