Video is excellent, great close ups and the lighting is very good. Joe "sweats" to his oldies. Puts his heart and soul into the tunes. The band and back-up singers are fabulous. You'll recognize every song. The sound is wonderful.
It is a concert dvd I would watch over and over again. I'm not a HUGE Joe Cocker fan, so that should speak volumes.
If you're looking for lots of action during the concert......you'll be disappointed, if you're okay with the singer standing in front of a mike and belting out their hits with their heart and soul, you'll love this dvd. The setting of this concert arena is very pleasing.
Cocker serves us his most popular hits with each one being a memory for me and probably most fans of his. During the more than solid one and a half hour live show, backed up by an exceptional band that knows how to rock Cocker does not hold back. Although I noted that he couldn't quite hit the high note screams in 'With a Little Help From My Friends' but then who would even attempt that piece after an hour long concert.
The technicals and the sound quality of the DVD are exceptional for a live outdoor concert and I reccommend this performance to
anyone that enjoys rock in its purest form......
This DVD is a KEEPER.
I noticed the drummer is the same guy that played on the Tina Turner Amsterdam show.
Now, Joe just stands there and croons away like so many other performers. The good news is that he is surrounded by a solid band and a couple of animated female singers. The instrumental parts in Cocker's songs now give it the vital energy he used to have. His songs are still very listenable, from his "Mad Dogs and Englishman" days to the present.
Give him credit: he's still introducing new material, unlike a lot of other '60s performers. One of them: "Into The Mystic"" is a very nice piece.
The capacity crowd is with him all the way and helps generate a little excitement, too.
The Across from Midnight Tour is a prime example of that. Recorded in the late 90's at the Waldbuhne (" Stage In The Woods ") in
Berlin, directed by Egbert van Hees and audio remix by Chris Lord-Alge, one only has to listen to the crowds reaction to Joe coming to center stage to realize that this show is going to be something special. Joe has always surrounded himself with fantastic musicians and this is no exception. On this tour the band consisted of the following:
Guitar: Gene Black
Bass: Warren McRae
Drums: Jack Bruno
Keys/Harmonica: Ken Stange
Keys/Guitar: Mark Alexander
Sax/Keys/Backing Vocals/Percussion: Steve Grove
Backing Vocals: Maxine Sharp and Stacey Campbell
The song selection for this tour was somewhat varied when compared to other tours Joe has done. He starts the proceedings off with Could You Be Loved and you can tell that he already has the crowd with him. Without missing a trick he follows that with IMHO one of his best recordings, Feeling Alright. Along the way he seems to be pulling small gems out of his hat. The Lovin' Spoonful's Summer In The City is a pleasant surprise only to be upstaged by a very emotional Into The Mystic, almost improving on Van Morrison's. The bulk of the remainder of the show is taken up with the more familiar songs in Joe's canon. Call me old (63) but With A Little Help From and Cry Me A River STILL get me every time !
The only drawback to the show is its brevity.Read more ›
