Maybe the best thing about this concert DVD is that it is truly representative of a standard Crowes show. Most of their shows consist of a good cross-section of songs from all of their recordings, as well as an unreleased cut or two, extended jams, and a couple of choice covers thrown in. The Crowes are known for never playing the same show twice, and quite simply, this band doesn't know how to not bring it strong each and every night. This is not a band that needs to hide behind stage theatrics nor excessive effects to entertain. To coin a phrase, it's simply the music that does the talking. Each Crowes concert is a unique experience unto itself, and this DVD is lightning in a bottle.
Having been a fan of this band since the beginning, I can state with confidence that the band is hitting on all cylinders at this point in time more than any other. Chalk that up to life experience, a new maturity, or something else, the Crowes are peaking at a time in their career when most musical artists are looking at their best days in the rearview mirror. The Black Crowes are choosing to write new history, and inviting everyone along for The Song.
Hit the lights, light your favorite incense, and turn up your surround sound. Rock and roll has many forms, but in its purest form, it is the truth, and the Black Crowes are the truth.
This is a great...make that GREAT...show. For the price, it's a steal, and, unlike many of the over 200 concerts I have on DVD, this one will find its way to the player many times. Whether you're experiencing it alone, or playing it over or under a party, it's a no-brainer...and this is coming from someone who gave up on the Crowes after the second album. Imagine that!
Get ready for The Black Crowes!
I've been missing their signiture sound for too many years now. Last album I enjoyed was By Your Side from 1998. Did not really care for Lions. Like most average fans, they like the "good" stuff from the the first few albums. I'm no different.
I bought the disc this weekend and gave it a full listen Saturday night. The quality, High-definition picture was excellant! Sound was also very good. I only have Stereo in my veiwing room so can't comment on the 5.1 surround sound, but it's all offered: DTS Digital Surround Sound, Dolby 5.1 Surround sound and Dolby digital Stereo.
This Performance will Not disappoint! Clear vocals, good imagery and lighting, etc. Song selection, like I said before, is targeted towards the early fan. Lots of material from the first four Crowes albums including "No Speak, No Slave, Wiser Time, and Seeing Things". Great acoustic versions of "Cursed Diamond" and "She Talks to Angels". As it should be. Usually in concert, unless a song is brand new and being presented for the first time on a tour, "acoustic" songs become "soft electric" numbers. Not Here.
Other high-lights are a horn section, The Left Coast Horns, who add just the right support to a number of tracks, and also go into some extended jams with the band that border on Jazz expressionism. I liked it!
Now, GO BUY This Now! and invite your friends over for a treat. Especially if they are not aware that the this DVD is available.
They will be thanking you at the end of the evening.
From the liner notes:
""It would be one thing to competently reproduce others past glories but what really puts the Crowes in the same category as the Beatles and Stones is the quality of their own material."
This DVD will make you feel good - it's just that simple. I can't believe you can get this much value for $10. The band could have charged 3 times that, and I wouldn't have blinked an eye. Everyone is in top form on this disc, and the performances are incredible. This band can make even the most grizzled and jaded music listener smile from ear to ear. Buy the disc, and then go see them live - it will change your life.
