Chris seems so relaxed and like he's having so much fun here - his banter with both the band and the audience had me cracking up. He's a natural born entertainer, and I am very much hoping to see him live in person sometime soon.
Here's to the Baja Sessions DVD coming out very soon : - )
I have seen Chris live and this was just not the same or close.
He is as always charming and cool.
Sounds great too!
But this dvd just does not capture what I saw live.
Maybe it is just too short (45 minutes!).
I also take into account that this is a PBS soundstage presentation and not a full Chris Isaak concert. I would purchase this again as right now there is no other live concert footage out there except for what is on is showtime dvd's.
Most importantly, he sang well and did some of this best songs. The only bad part of this DVD is that it is so short: the program is only 46 minutes long, enough for about 11 numbers. This guy is such a good singer and so entertaining between songs that I wish this concert was longer. I've read that people who attended this remarked it was longer but cut for this disc.
When I told a good friend about this DVD, he remarked he has seen Isaak twice in concert and said they were two of the best concerts he's ever attended. They were a lot wilder and risqué than the material shown on this made-for-TV disc (which he had also seen.)
Anyway, the songs we hear are:
American Boy, Wicked Game, Go Walking Down There, Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing, Courthouse, Somebody's Crying, One Day, San Francisco Days, Forever Blue and Super Magic 2000.
The most fun was "Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing" because Isaak did a great job with the song and added some great humor to it.

It's great to have a DVD to be able to watch Chris in action whenever I want to. Soundstage was a particularly good performance.Published on November 11, 2008 by Kay Martin
Chris Issak is a dying breed and this video shows why he is such a great talent. He's funny and entertaining and I recommend this to anyone who loves Roy Orbison.Published on January 7, 2007 by P. L. Rogers
