The program starts off with Lyle singing hits from various movies. About mid-concert Randy Newman performs 3 of his compositions. Lyle then comes back to finish up with several non-movie related songs from his past releases. All-in-all, a wonderful mix of songs, all packed nicely into an 81 minute concert.
Video was captured using High Definition equipment and looks sharp.
Audio (the 5.1 track) sounds rich and clean.
If you're a Lovett or Newman fan you're going to enjoy this one.
Here's a complete track list for those of you that are interested:
Blue Skies (Lovett)
Straighten Up And Fly Right (Lovett)
Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You (Lovett)
Summer Wind (Lovett)
Moritat (Mack The Knife) (Lovett w/Isham)
Walking Tall (Lovett)
You've Got A Friend In Me (Lovett & Newman)
Political Science (Newman)
I Think It's Going To Rain Today (Newman)
If I Had A Boat (Lovett)
That's Right (You're Not From Texas) (Lovett)
Long Tall Texan (Lovett & Newman)
What Do You Do? (Lovett & Reed)
What'd I Say (Lovett)
I'm A Soldier In The Army Of The Lord (Lovett)
I'm Going To Wait (Lovett w/Isham)
Anyway, the biggest disappointment for me was the sound. Almost returned the disc and thought better of it. I think it is just the way it is. It goes from a full concert/stereo big sound to a canned, far away sound. That is the only way I can describe it. I am curious to know if others had the same problem. It also seemed like the lighting could have been better and the vision sharper. I am comparing this to some James Taylor DVD's and a Sarah Macglaughlan (sp?) that I have. Great content, but technically lacking.

First off, I don't know where reviewers get off saying Lyle's ugly. He might be a bit homely, but he gives us average guys hope. Read morePublished on July 13, 2007 by Lucius M. McKelvy
