The DVD has great sound and picture quality and has more songs than the CD, including "Memphis In Your Mind" from Ringo Rama (Bonus Dvd) (Dlx); the title track from Liverpool 8, Ringo's then-current Capitol album; the title track from Ringo's 2005 album, Choose Love; Billy Squier's "Lonely Is The Night"; Colin Hay's Men At Work hit, "Down Under"; Hamish Stuart's rendition of The Isley Brothers' "Work To Do"; and Gary Wright's "Love Is Alive." The CD is also sequenced and indexed a little differently than the DVD.
Of course, plenty of Ringo's classics are offered too - "It Don't Come Easy," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Oh My My," "What Goes On," "With A Little Help From My Friends," and many more, including "Never Without You," Ringo's moving tribute to George Harrison.
The CD is perfect for the car, while the DVD can be watched at home, so get both of them. Of course, you can also listen to the audio CD at home.
Members of the All Starr Band that gathered on stage in August 2008 for this concert with Ringo Starr are: Billy Squier, (The Bluesbreakers), Colin Hay (Men at Work) and Edgar Winter, as well as Gary Wright (Spooky Tooth), Hamish Stuart (Average White Band) and Gregg Bissonette. They perform popular songs with which they are famously associated. This is a two hour concert.
The video quality of the DVD is very good. For my sound system selecting the 5.1 audio option on the disk does not generate sound in the center channel. For audio in all speakers I have to select the 2 channel audio, and PCM on the Sony amplifier. There is no DTS audio.
Ringo surrounds himself with talented performers and he asks them to play some of their own material so they are not just back up players for the "Starr". It was a great treat to see a "Beatle" in little ole' Kettering, Ohio and then relive a very close representation on this DVD. Wonderful concert!
