Patti Has The Power,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live at Montreux 2005 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've recently purchased a large selection of concert blu-rays to enjoy my new HDTV. Patti Smith's 'Live at Montreux' is one of the best of the bunch. Produced as part of the SoundStage series, which has also featured legends such as Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty (both which I also recommend), this blu-ray shines with incredible video and audio quality. The studio is reminiscent of the Austin City Limits studio; there's a respectful but excited crowd of about 500. It's nice to get these artists to tape in such an intimate setting with a director who knows how to put out a quality product.
It doesn't hurt that Patti sounds amazing. She has only gotten better with age. Backed by her full band, she performs a tight setlist of some of her classic songs, in addition to a couple covers. She nails 'Like a Rolling Stone' like she wrote it herself. If you are still reading this, just BUY IT!
