Editorial Reviews

In 1979 America (Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley) were at the height of their popularity and had just released "Silent Letter" their first album as a duo following the departure of fellow founding member Dan Peek. Acclaimed Australian filmmaker Peter Clifton captured the band at their concert in New York's Central Park and then followed them across to California where he filmed them in the studio and on location. All of this footage was combined to make America "Live In Central Park".

TRACK LISTING: 1. Intro 2. Tin Man 3. Only Game in Town 4. I Need You 5. Foolin' 6. Ventura Highway 7. California Dreamin' 8. Another Try 9. A Horse With No Name 10. All Night 11. Here 12.

I'm not a huge fan of America but I like several of their songs. The good part of this DVD is that it includes all of America's "big" songs up until 1979. The bad part of it is the directing and camera work. The director spent too much time panning the audience, showing people roller skating in Central Park, showing the stage from far off and a number of other distractions while America was playing. If I wanted to see that I'd go to the park myself. Nevertheless, it is worth getting if you like America since it was filmed in 1979 (of historical significance) and they do show America doing many of their hits with close-ups of the band.

It's hard to believe so many years have passed since this concert and we've all changed so much, but America is still "cranking" out concerts today. About 8 or so years ago ,I had the priviledge of seeing them at a county sponsored event in town and was amazed how good they still are after playing for so long. They sounded as good as they did back in the early 70's when I first heard them. Some groups play past their "prime", but that doesn't apply here. It goes to show the vast talent this group has and continues to have. This is a "must have" for any America fan. If you have a good sound system backing up your TV, then you'll get the most out of this DVD since it was recorded outside.

No, Danny Peek is not with them, but this, in my opinion, is the best concert video of America presently available. It is in 5.1 Digital, but doesn't really add much to the quality of sound. I have seen America at least 7 times in Concert and i would rank this as #3 as the best of their concerts, from the standpoint of energy and showmanship. They have had better playlists, would have like to have heard "Riverside", "California Revisited", and "To Each His Own", but all in all a good set. "Sandman" is just awesome, never wanted the song to end. For the money, an excellent buy. as always, Amazon delivers timely and as offered.

This is my second dvd of the America concert in Central park. I lent my other signed one to a friend who passed away and it cannot be found so I bought another. It's great looking back and seeing how popular America was and how great they played but I do miss Dan Peek. He wrote some great songs and his guitar playing, among the other instruments he played, was exceptional. What fun to watch!!

I really enjoyed this dvd of Americas concert in Central Park in 79. It sounds really good although I would have liked it better if all the filming of the songs was on Dewey and Gerry. I did like the intro for Tin Man though really gives you the feeling of 1979 in New York. All in all I think this is a great buy just for the fact it is America in concert and they sound excellent!
