If there was any lip-syncing going on I really don't care, since there were issues that may have affected the final product - weather, Carly's live performance anxiety... Some reviewers have made a point of bringing it up, I guess it hadn't occurred to me before, but it doesn't bother me.
Its great to hear Carly reminiscing on the concert in the dvd extras, and to see a glimpse of her photo scrapbook. Overall its just a great concert to savour with your eyes & ears. Its highly recommended even to the casual Carly Simon listener like myself. I only hope the Grand Central Station concert will be released on DVD someday as well.
really loved this concert which sees carly at her absolute best together with a all star band including mike brecker on sax and the
great lani groves on backing vocals my favourite songs being youre so vain an all time classic and you belong to me loved coming around again with the kids singing itsy bitsy spider this dvd is right up there with the best and I would recommend it to anyone who
genuinely loves great pop music carly is truly a great singer of all genres just listen to her torch album it is a classic tribute to the
great American songbook my one disappointment is that carly did not include her brilliant ive got to have you on the songlist but
still a superb dvd.
Check out other reviews for the song listing. The video editing is good. There is a slight softness in the video which suits the content and location. It appears to have been shot in the evening, and that light is often naturally soft. Another reviewer wrote that the video was overly soft and grainy. I'm a very critical photographer, and it looks good to me. That same person also complained about the sound quality. I was amazed that with it being an outside concert, with an apparenly substantial breeze, that the sound was so good. Indeed, it's quite obvious that the event itself was a totally professional, top-notch concert production (for the couple hundred people actually there!). I think this was a special originally produced for HBO ...
The DVD has some worthwhile extras, like a couple of more recent interviews with Carly about that concert.
I'd consider myself a casual Carly fan (only really know the radio stuff) -- but now I need more Carly after seeing this video. Like I said, this video makes me wish I could go back almost 20 years and be there.
