This is Jewel's first concert release on DVD. I thought it was great-- no rapid cuts between cameras, no quirky sound issues, and the picture is crisp, clean, and clear. Jewel is radiant, and I thought this recording did well to capture her sense of humor.
For those who prefer pre-0304 before the makeover, this was performed well before 0304, so it's folkie-acoustic-Jewel. Whether you like her recent transformation or not, this DVD boasts the same great voice her fans have come to know and love.
Though some have complained about the sound, it's not an issue unless you're *really, really, really* a sound buff. I popped it in the player and was able to enjoy it just fine with my TV speakers and the occasional stereo headphone (when I play it on the computer).
About 3/4 of the songs are done solo, so fans of "Jewel & Guitar" won't be disappointed. The last four songs (You Were Meant For Me, Hands, Everybody Needs Someone Sometime, Who Will Save Your Soul) are performed with a band backing her up. (She picks up the electric guitar in the 'Hands' performance.)
Also included are 3 bonus performances of Love Me Just Leave Me Alone, Do You Want to Play, and Jesus Loves You. There's also a Standing Still video, which is basically a montage of various behind the scenes and concert clips showing while the song is playing. Then there's an interview with Jewel that's about 12 minutes long in which she talks about her creative process and the long break she took between before recording 'This Way.'
Jewel's forte is live performances. Though I wish there were more songs, I'll take what I can get.Read more ›
I hadn't seen any footage of her, had only heard her. This dvd was just what I wanted to see, her and her guitar on stage singing to a moderately sized audience. No grand theatrics or light shows, just simple music and a beautiful voice.
If I have any complaints it would be that I wanted more but then if she gave it I would still want more.
All in all the dvd is very enjoyable, doesn't get you seasick with camera tricks or poor editing. Just plain music from someone who can keep it simple and wonderful at the same time.
Those words touch me much too deeply.
They make my core tremble.
Don't think you realize the effect you have over me.
And please don't look at me like that,
It just makes me want to make you near me always.
Jewel's music, her poems and her concerts all show a heart on display. In her first concert disc, there is an overwhelming feeling of intimacy and connection.
So break me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Just let me
Feel your love again
The intellectual dances with the child as Jewel's heart opens to the world. She is in touch with the pulse of humanity and even her political statements show an intuitive understanding of society.
Welcome to the new wild west
Each man for himself
A nation of civilized steeples
And lonely people
Welcome to the new wild west
"The New Wild West" is stunning in content and such a contrast to her love songs. Some of her songs had me in tears and a few left me stunned because her lyrics were potent and intellectually pleasurable.

I loved the part where she invites a girl up on the stage to whisper the words as she sings. It is amusing, although we can't imagine she would really forget the words.Read more ›
