It's all the more essential, though, because it's truly a blast - this is the most energetic, soulful, joyous live concerts I think I've ever seen - and the songs themselves are just crazy, vibrant, brilliant performances by one of the most talented musical outfits of the 1970s.
Although the predominantly Dutch audience doesn't quite seem to 'get' it at the beginning - whenever should such a concert be a seated gig, anyway? - it doesn't take in the least from our appreciation of the atmosphere, and, even though there are one or two glaring flaws in the DVD presentation itself (several of the more noteworthy tracks such as "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Respect" and "Shake a Tail Feather" are missing, why is this??), it still doesn't stop this from being a powerful and wonderful celebration of music and dance.
Tina's on top of her game here, to watch her is to really understand the love a great performer has of his genre. From her entrance, right up to the end of "I Smell Trouble", there's not one part of her body that isn't in constant rhythm with the music, and her voice is amazing - raspy and raw, with a power behind it that lends so much more depth to the songs than many of their original performers lacked. The dance routines with the Ikettes, thanks to what's now a more amateur and simple style of camerawork, are powerful and energetic; you want to get up off the couch and dance with them! "Proud Mary" and the amazing "I Wanna Take You Higher" are examples, but even on the more downbeat tracks such as "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Come Together" (the Beatles, except better!

This DVD shows Ike and Tina performing some of their greatest hits on stage. Unlike the CD part of the combo, you get to hear Tina speak and interact with the audience, which is fantastic and in the end is what a live concert is all about. I was sad to see they don't have the footage of RESPECT, IVE BEEN LOVING YOU TOO LONG or LAND OF 1000 DANCES on the DVD. Loving you too long, although a song Tina ended up hating to perform, was great to watch, and vocally she was amazing. Tina looks amazing on this DVD and I was smiling all the way through.
The CD is a typical live CD of the Revue. It has had most if not all of Tinas interaction with the audience edited out, like the start of Ooh Poo Pah Doo, but the sound is fantastic and her voice on this disc is AMAZING! The raspy, rocky, r&b vocals that Tina is famous for sends shivers down my spine.
My only main complaint with this combo is the editing out the songs mentioned earlier. The track listing on the DVD is also slightly out of order, and accoridng to the AMAZON song listing, is missing Shake a Tail Feather and another track. A typo perhaps?
Overall a GREAT DVD for anyone who wants to watch an awesome concert by a fantastic group. Tina was and will always be great on stage.Read more ›
Tina is nothing short of enchanting as she and the Ikettes storm the stage! Tina and the Ikettes, shriek, wail and howl. The dancing is energetic and Tina makes you feel the kinetic energy of the performance. She is in fine voice on this performance. Not to be left out, Ike and the Kings of Rhythm are in great form as well. Not to be outdone by his wife, Ike too, enters the stage donning a paige boy wig!
The only two downsides to the disc is the fact that even with the disc having been re-mastered and restored, there are still some defects. That is to be expected when one reads the insert which tells of the process that had to be used in order to even obtain the film. The other i the fact that for some reason, other portions of the show were edited out of the final content of the dvd. These are most notably the omissions of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and "Land of 1,000 Dances". Ike and Tina (at that time) would NEVER have omitted "IBLYTL" from the repertoire. And as lewd as it still can be considered, it still should have been left in the video.
In all, I cannot believe I finally own this concert. It is Ike and Tina Turner at their best. It's great that new generations will get to see what they were all about onstage!
