Features highlights from the first season of the Channel 4 show LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD, which saw various musical artists perform live at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
The show took the artists into the hallowed studios, and with the only audience being the TV cameras and technicians, they recorded a selection of songs later broadcast in the twelve hour-long episodes. Augmented with interviews, the shows cut through the normal visual effects and studio trickery to showcase the music itself.
The 2-disc DVD brings together some of the best performances from the whole series, along with some additional goodies.
Disc One features: John Mayer; Corinne Bailey Rae; Dr John; Craig David; Damien Rice; LeAnn Rimes; Josh Groban; Natasha Bedingfield ; Wynton Marsalis; Nerina Pallot; Jamiroquai; Ray LaMontagne; Gipsy Kings; and Norah Jones.
Disc Two features: David Gilmour; The Good, The Bad And The Queen; The Kooks; Gnarls Barkley; The Goo-Goo Dolls; Iron Maiden; Kasabian; Primal Scream; The Zutons; Dave Mathews; and Amos Lee.

They even shortened the interviews. I don't hate them anyway, they reset the stage for each artist opposed to a constant assault of unrelated styles.
This musical compilation gives you a brief close up interview with each artist, then gives you a taste of their musical style as you watch them play a live version of one of their songs. Live from Abbey Road is a terrific way for someone to find out about an artist or style that they've never experienced before. I got the DVD originally because there were one or two artists on it whom I liked. however, after watching the DVD in its entirety, I ended up thoroughly enjoying the music of many artists I had never heard of before. It is a great DVD for music enthusiasts who enjoy variety.
I had seen a clip or two online and wanted to see more, so I ordered the set. I did not realize that there was only one song for each artist, so that was disappointing at first, but I really enjoyed the "behind the scenes" feel of the presentation. The video is every bit as choreographed and polished as any music video, but with a more intimate feel. Sometimes it feels as though you are a "fly on the wall", invisibly enjoying being there with these incredible musicians.
I didn't love every clip - there was a wide variety of music - but I really enjoyed the whole experience. The highlights for me were Jamiroquai and Corinne Bailey Rae, but there were a lot of great performances.
