Throughout the 70s and early 80s, Diana Ross concerts were like love-ins. It seemed no matter what you had felt about her and/or body of work, she had a unique gift to entertain audiences into gleeful nirvana. She had been a pupil of Werner Earhard's "EST" which seem to draw her even closer to her audiences. I imagined Central Park to be a great big love-in. I had been traveling annually to New York since 1972/73. I had the privilege of seeing her at Radio City a number of times before this engagement. I thought I knew New York. But a decade later, there were clearly a lot of things I needed to learn.Read more ›
I got an advance copy and I loooooooooooooove it! The special commentary with director Steve Binder is phenomenal with great behind the scenes insight. It's unbelievable that it's taken 29 years for this news worthy concert to finally find it's way to DVD! The HD picture quality is pristine and the audio is simply FANTASTIC!!!
The 2nd concert is great, but the concert during the storm makes this DVD outstanding documentation of a major event and demonstration of the qualities that made Diana Ross a long time superstar.
Ms. Ross' talent and her genuine love for her audience, and them to her, are apparent in both shows. But in the first show, we see it all....the Diva....as the wind keeps blowing hair in her face, she turns to the wind and says "cool it".....the business woman giving onstage direction to stagehands ....her sense of drama as she throws her arms up to the storm....the guardian of her audience as she safely directs them from the park and ..yes...her temper...yelling to the NYC Policemen to stop pushing. (The next day, she thanked and flirted with them from the stage)
But Diana Ross can't stop the storm and it finally must end. She stays on stage while the audience leaves, watching her lifelong dream of doing a great outdoor concert melt. That's when she throws caution to the wind and says, "We'll do this again tomorrow."
And so the show does go on ...the next day...on a beautiful day with a cloudless sky. Diana Ross is at one of her many career peaks...riding off her hit album with CHIC's producers and signing one of the biggest recording contracts up to that time. Her energy, talent and beauty are all great. But again, it's the connection between Diana Ross and the audience...strong and loving...which is so amazing.
Incredibly, the concert was not fully appreciated in its time.Read more ›
Super glad that the 1st night is included in this released. After all... It's the most exciting one!
Diana is good on stage but i think outdoor is not her scene. i think she is much more gracious in the in door arena. Her sexy outfits mached her sexy dances she belted out on this set.
What a hot bod.
You keep on going girl. We love you. This is by far the best Diana Ross DVD.
