Editorial Reviews

“RAW Live” provides an unprecedented and unique look at the rise of a guitar god. Spanning from 1981 through 1999 and encompassing extremely rare footage of Yngwie’s early years in Sweden, this video displays the infancy of Yngwie’s prodigious skills well prior to his first worldwide album and travels through Yngwie's masterful career, including his masterful performances from his first solo albums, Rising Force, Marching Out, and Trilogy. Also included in this unique video are never released behind the scenes footage of Yngwie and newly shot personal touches of Yngwie which open up the viewer to a side of the guitar maestro which is rarely seen by the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars: fun, exciting, warts-and-all dvd! :O) July 2, 2010
Yngwie Malmsteen is a God on guitar, as this dvd with demonstrate. Sure, this is not A+ production you are getting here, being a collection of very rare bootlegs and so forth. However, this is what makes this dvd FUN: it contains many gems you won't find in more polished collections (and Yngwie ALREADY has made many polished dvds). The dvd clocks in at 2 hours 15 minutes and approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes is REALLY great, while the other 45 minutes is just ok-very good. I really enjoyed the 2010 wrap-arounds and credits (complete with funny flubs) and there is enough fantastic guitar moments to overcome the ok-very good moments. I must digress: I was not only AT the 9/10/85 Pittsburgh, PA Civic Arena show (Yngwie opened for ACDC and, at the time, we were wondering "who is that guy singing?", as we were expecting Jeff Scott Soto and received an unnamed Marc Boals instead!), but THAT IS MY VIDEO! Needless to say, I am thrilled to see it a part of this fantastic, warts-and-all, interesting collection. More artists need to release fun bootleg collections.

3.0 out of 5 stars True Fans only August 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is an interesting group of videos that are truly for die hard fans only. The quality of some of the clips are not very good, reminds me of the recent release of the concert in Korea. I wish that one was better quality, as Mark Boals is the singer for that concert.

However, if you are a fanatic and long time fan of Yngwie, it is a must for your collection. Yngwie does do some "introductions" which are fun to watch, especially the "blooper" segments.

I think it is wonderful that these clips were released, just bear in mind due to the photography and sound, it may not be one to listen to when you have a headache.

3.0 out of 5 stars Authorized bootleg footage. No more...no less December 20, 2010
I've got to give Yngwie props first off. Ever since he created his own label, Rising Force records, more dvd items have become available to fans than ever before. And we fans appreciate it. Old VHS tapes like Tokyo '85, Live in Leningrad, the YM collection, are probably still owned by his first record label and won't let go. So it may be a while before we see those on dvd.
Raw and Live is clearly bootleg footage that YJM got his hands on and decided to release it. Nothing wrong with that at all. Experience Hendrix LLC has been doing that for years. Nothing re-mixed or remastered, just bare bones footage. Either you will like it or you won't. If you want pro-shot professional quality, I'd probably pass on this one. If, however, officially releasing bootlegs is a trend that YJM continues with, there's TONS of material out there, ranging from exceptional pro-shot quality to not really worth watching. But I do think that this idea is something that fans would enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth in Advertising! July 1, 2010
Verified Purchase
This DVD is EXACTLY what it says it is- Raw, and live! Thank you Yngwie and April for putting this together. There's over 2 hours of great concert footage here, recorded from nice vantage points with a decent quality home video camera. The sound is as honest as it gets... straight from the camera; no multitracking or digital enhancemenmts added. So there are some flat notes, and occasional screw-ups, and it is all glorious and great fun. Yngwie introduces a few tunes from his studio and from the front seat of the Red Devil, a nice touch that gives the recording a personal feel, while staying short and to the point. No hokey filler here- 99.9% of the DVD is all about the concerts, as it should be! Any serious collector of Yngwie material is going to be thrilled with this collection. For me it brings back so many great memories of shows from Malmsteen's first several US tours, and fills in some missing gaps from ones that I missed, too (especially the 1996 footage from the Inspiration tour). It is a testament to Yngwie's inner Fury that his energetic and honest persona lights up the stage so consistently over the 20 plus years encapsulated on this disc. If you are new or curious fan, you probably also want to get Yngwie's Live in Korea (Seoul, 2001) for a more polished performance with multiple professional cameras and high quality soundtrack. The music quality on Raw Live! is compressed and a bit on the harsh side at times, due to the nature of the recordings themselves. But if you are already familiar with the music, and just want to see several different flavors of Yngwie in action over the years, this definitely fills the bill and then some! I'm especially grateful for the inclusion of so many Malmsteen classics and rarities that haven't been in the set list for ages... Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Like the title says, it's RAW footage! July 30, 2010
I'm a big Yngwie fan and have followed all of his work throughout his career with Steeler, Rising Force, and Solo. This DVD is way too amateurish to merit even viewing it. The sound quality is horrible. The video quality couldn't be worse. And I'm not surprised that Yngwie and his wife produced it. Very low quality. I wouldn't recommend purchasing this DVD.
