Editorial Reviews

The teaming of legendary groups Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire was the tour hit of the summer. Playing to sold-out venues, this spectacular show brought the GRAMMY-winning artists together in a show that both individually and together highlighted their revolutionary melding of rock, soul and jazz as well as their numerous #1 and Top 10 hits. Now you can have a front-row seat for this amazing concert, performed at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Every moment, all the energy and excitement of this final show of the tour, was captured in high-definition for this extraordinary DVD.

Check it OUT~! I purchased this live DVD to watch Chicago take over Los Angeles. I had been to several Chicago concerts through the years and was wondering if Chicago could still reach the high notes.

I have never seen such a pumped-up session by Chicago until they performed with Earth, Wind and Fire. I could see that the baby boom generation (yep, that's me) in the audience were trying to keep up with Chicago and EWF. Bill Champlin and Jason Scheff struggled on many notes, but they looked happy as ever while performing. It was worth every penny to watch them. Jimmy Pankow and the horns, and Tris Imboden and the percussion, gave tremendous performances. My highest accolade goes to Robert Lamm when he comfortably sang `with soul' "Does Anyone Know What Time It Is" with full support from my leading man Verdine White and EWF.

Step it OUT~! I had only heard of Earth, Wind and Fire. The closest I got to their music was hearing the Tomorrow Land Band at Disneyland play the tune "Let's Groove" through the years. I also didn't realize I was that old. :(

The first person I could not avoid from the beginning to the end of the DVD was Verdine White. I stared at disbelief at this absolutely crazed dancer. On the other hand, was he an absolutely crazed bass guitarist? OK, which is it? His attitude from the get-go was "We are the Greatest, You are the Greatest, let's Dance Together and be the Greatest Together!" He hypnotized me. :)

Earth, Wind and Fire is one of the most talented bands in the World, at any level. The singing of Philip Bailey and Ralph Johnson is absolutely superb. I was dancing like an absolutely crazed fool on the couches, on the tables and on the walls of my living room (it can be done) trying to keep up with Verdine White.

Q: Take a rock 'n' roll band with horns, mix it with a mystical funk group and what do you get?
A: A sparkling new concert DVD combining the music of two classic horn bands-Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire "Live at the Greek Theatre." (Shelf date: June 28, 2005)
In the show taped in high-definition at the conclusion of their 2004 summer tour, the two-band powerhouse has the Greek Theatre crowd on its feet for most of the three-plus-hour concert. The show was originally recorded for a pay-per-view concert that aired on cable systems in early 2005.
The two-disc DVD set opens with the groups hitting the stage en masse-complete with six horn players, two drummers, three percussionists, two bass players, three guitarists, et al., launching into Chicago's "Beginnings."
"When we open and both bands are on stage, people are like agog," Chicago founding member and trumpet player Lee Loughnane said during the 2004 tour. "They're like 'oh my God, you guys really are playing together.'"
Putting two bands on stage at once is often a train wreck in the making. A muddy sound mix can plague the effort or whole sections of one band or the other get left out.
Instead listeners are treated to a sparkling mix and interplay among the horn players that only adds to the classic tunes. Clearly the sum is greater than the already exceptional parts.
Next is EWF's majestic "In the Stone," cross-pollinated with Chicago's "Dialogue." Like a club DJ, the bands somehow mix the two songs together with stunning results, using an a cappella bridge.

If you did not see this incredible tour last year here is your chance. Almost 3 fantastic hours from two of the greatest rock & R n B bands of all time. The beginning and ending where both bands are onstage is worth the purchase price alone! If you are a fan of either band or a fan of 70's music in general this is one not to miss! If this great show comes to your town this year you should go see it live as well. The early reviews are that it is great as well.

Time for an edit in of gripes with some reviewers.

1- Jay L. Rudko - Hey Jay my boy Peter Cetera has been a solo act now for 20 years. If you expected him the show up for this show, you must really be Rip Van Winkle. And Jason Scheff does the majority of Peter's songs. Keith only does one or two depending on the set list.

2- Nathan - Hey Nate that "Medley" you refer to is the "Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon" written by Jimmy Pankow See Chicago II for the original studio version. And Hard to Say I'm Sorry/Get Away is presented as it was on Chi 16 (with a repeat helping of Get Away and some horns added on HTSIS) And what "Lesser known songs" are you referring to? Also PC left of his own accord and Champlin was brought into the band cause it was thought that Robert Lamm might leave the band at some point. And how can you say Jason and Bill's singing is inadequate, versus who???? PC's voice isn't all it used to be either.

3 & 4 - Emacomber & Bluzman - You two make zero sense at all, and that is more than enough to be said about the two of you except to say that I am sure that Maurice would love to be healthy enough to still be touring with EWF. Sadly he has Parkinsons Disease and can not tour. But I do understand that he will be on EWF's new studio CD due out this summer!
