Perhaps I had my expectations too high.
Phil's stage presence was not even close to his best and his performance was remarkably sub-par.
The band backing him up were very talented but Phil's renditions of these classic Soul and Motown tunes did nothing to improve upon them.
It was almost as though Phil never rehearsed the set, as though he phoned in his performance. Ever see "Live Karaoke?" It's just like Karaoke but with a live band backing you up instead of music tracks. That's what this reminded me of.
I am a HUGE music lover with a great appreciation for Genesis and Phil Collins but this purchase will sit on the shelf and gather dust after my initial purchase.
I own over 150 Concert Videos and rate them honestly, even if I am fans of the artists.
'Going Back - Live at the Roseland Ballroom' is a real chance to get up close and personal with Phil Collins as he covers the greats including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and William 'Smokey' Robinson.

If you enjoy Rod Stewart's Great American Songbook series, then you'll certainly love Phil Collins' "Going Back".
On this blu-ray, Phil Collins passionately recreates the soul and Motown classics that he listened to and loved since his early music days of being a drummer in his school band and subsequently joining the group Genesis in 1971.
In September 2010, Phil released the audio CD Going Back to complement this concert that took place in June 2010.Read more ›
The history behind it--that Phil grew up on this music- was so interesting.
beautiful video that is ABSOLUTELY DEVOID OF ITS MUSICAL SOUL!
This is no diss on the performers, who are brilliant and giving it their all, but
rather this is a HUGE indictment of the audio mix, which is absolutely HORRIBLE!
The ESSENCE of Motown is the rhythm section interplay, but you can barely hear
Eddie Willis and Ray Monette playing the Motown signature guitar parts!
A Motown song with out a backbeat guitar? UNTHINKABLE!
Phil is SO loud in the mix, there's no room for the background singers,
who are FABULOUS talents, or the horns who are trying their best!
PLEASE - Remix and remaster this disc - with all of the quality and fidelity available on Blu-ray,
this disc is only halfway there - visually great, but sonically WAY BELOW PAR!

Love this DVD by Phil Collins with his orchestra. He plays old songs from when he was growing up. There is "Papa Was a Rolling Song" and each section of the orchestra... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Cheryl Denney
