Product Description

Two CD set. This album captures the multi-Grammy Award winning, platinum selling singer and songwriter in the element where fans love him the most - Live on stage! The special concert includes three sets: an acoustic performance, a rare set with John Mayer Trio (with Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino), as well as a set featuring Mayer's full band, all recorded during the night of December 8, 2007 at the Nokia Theater in LA. This album features the quintessential performer as an acoustic songwriter, electric guitar slinger, bluesman and vocalist. Highlights include many of Mayer's biggest hits, 'Waiting On The World To Change' new interpretations of cover songs, 'Free Fallen' and a previously unreleased Mayer gem 'In Your Atmosphere'.

The much anticipated double CD of John Mayer in concert includes all the guitar player’s hits, and the sound is unique. But the album is nothing more than a compilation of the different facets of Mayer, whose performance is divided into his three major stages. In the first part, he sings with the sole accompaniment of his acoustic guitar. Then he moves to a more jazz- and blues-inclined trio format (guitar, bass, and drums). Finally, Mayer joins his entire band with a rock sound. The truth is that the musician did not make the least effort to come up with new arrangements for his songs. If you have Mayer’s previous live CDs, there’s is not a single note here that you haven’t heard before. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

He aquí el esperado disco doble en concierto de John Mayer, el mismo incluye todos los éxitos del guitarrista y tiene un sonido es excepcional. Pero también hay que decir que el disco nos es más que una compilación de las diferentes facetas de Mayer que dividió su actuación en tres etapas: la primera parte del concierto es él acompañado por su guitarra acústica, posteriormente viene una etapa con trío (guitarra, bajo y batería) que se inclina más hacía el Jazz y Blues, y finalmente podemos disfrutar de Mayer acompañado de toda su banda y con sonido rockero. La realidad es que el músico no hizo ningún esfuerzo por crear nuevo arreglos para sus canciones, si usted tiene los discos anteriores del cantautor en vivo, no tiene por qué comprar este, no hay una sola nota que no haya escuchado antes. Este disco es una compilación de éxitos en concierto. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

I saw this on the big screen at a theater where I live, and nothing beat hearing it in Dolby Digital Sound somewhere like that (except for seeing the man live in concert, which I'll be doing later this month). It was your standard rocumentary in that it contained his philosophical moments, mixed in with a lot of amazing live footage from the Nokia Theater performance. What made it one of the most impressive concert videos I've seen as of late though is the format he used for the performance. It was all his various incarnations on one stage for one night: acoustic, the blues team he assembled for Trio, and his full band. It's as if he opened up for himself all night, and it really gave you a great perspective on his incredible range as a young musician and how much he's grown since Room for Squares. At times, the guitar solos seemed clearly to be meditative moments for him, and you could really see how much this dude loves The Music. It will be very interesting to see where his talent takes him in coming years, because he has come so far already.

I have never seen John Mayer perform live. This two disc set is the next best thing to watching him play live in the Nokia theater. He performs most of his hits here. I love the acoustic versions of "Daughters", "Neon" and a lesser known track entitled "Stop This Train". Mayer's cover of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" John can jam on the guitar like no musician I've seen this decade. I love his performances of the bluesy track "Vultures" and the fast pace of the track "Who Did You Think I Was" My other favorite tracks are "Waiting On The World To Change" and "Why Georgia". This are such happy songs that John performs with his band. I also love the song "Gravity". It is a slow paced track in which John displays his vocal skills. I love the music of John Mayer.

I really love it when artists give you your money's worth (as opposed to overpriced "double albums" or throwing in an extra DVD and charging more money for it, etc.). Here, we have an excellent 2-CD live album for 10 bucks (I paid 12 at a store, but close enough). I love the presentation of this CD---you get an acoustic set, an awesome blues set from Mayer's trio, and then an entire disc of his full-band stuff. The sound is great (I wish Rush would mix one of their live albums like this) and Mayer plays his butt off, especially with the trio. There's a gorgeous version of Free Fallin' which I think would make Tom Petty proud, and overall the musicmanship on here is at a high level. Not really much criticism to offer for this disc, other than there were a few songs I would have like to have heard here, but overall...100% worth your ten bucks.

Although I continue to enjoy all of John Mayer's recordings... I much prefer his recent blues work... on "Continuum" and now this live set. I have had the good fortune to see John in concert, and each of his live recordings has done an exceptional job of capturing both the energy and intimacy of his shows.

I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who hears flashes of B.B. King and Eric Clapton. John Mayer's guitar talent is clearly influenced by the great Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas-style blues... and equally so by the legendary Chicago blues genius Buddy Guy.

Modern blues fans must add this set to their collection, along with "Continuum" and the John Mayer Trio set.

I happen to be a relatively new Mayer fan. Saw him in concert 18 months ago and was blown away. This CD is amazing and brought tears to my eyes several times and chills up and down my spine. He is a musical genius and no where is it captured better then on this CD. (Except seeing him live) His blues set with the trio is the best sequence for me but it is all amazing! Looking forward to more great things from the legend himself.

I just picked up a copy of "Where the Light Is" and was extremely impressed. This is hands down John Mayer's best album. This isn't a live Mayer rehash like the second disc of Continuum (which was good, but nothing compared to this.) Every song on this album is the best version out there of that song. The new songs are top notch. "In Your Atmosphere" is a great song that brings us back to the Inside Wants Out era.
If there's one Mayer album to get, this is it.

Pros:
-"Daughters"... acoustic!
-"In Your Atmosphere"... great new song!
-Very good price.
-Contains almost all of Continuum's songs.
-Three albums in one: Acoustic Set, Trio Set, and Band Set.
-The Trio fixes a few of the weaker songs on Try and electrifies them.
-Seven thousand people go nuts at the start of a slow blues song in the year 2007. "All is not lost."
-Mayer's guitar is on fire.

Cons:
-Cheesy monologue breaks up "Bold as Love."

OK, I bought both on release and for me the DVD was MUCH better.

First was just the overall look of the dvd - the commentary was a nice touch, great editing.

The MAJOR disappointment on the audio CD was well, the audio. It's all over the place. Loud one minute, muddy another. How they got the sound on the DVD so perfectly and then to jack up the audio CD is beyond me.

Whoa... hold your horses. He's good, but the best?
Are you forgetting about
Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, and the guy who does the guitar solo in "Beat It?"
He may be the best new guitarist in twenty five years,... Read More
