I love Stevie's bravery and creative genius in moving beyond the Motown formula for great R&B, his mastery of the harmonica, the synthesizer, the piano, his acknowledgement of the oppression of people of color, his advocacy for so many important causes, his magnificent song-writing, his stellar performance of his music, his uncommon spirituality and humility. Inspired by Stevie, I named my first-born child Aisha, in 1980.
What's so wonderful about this Blu-ray is that it successfully captures the beauty of Stevie's music and the breadth of his talent. His band and background singers, including his daughter, are also incredible. But the most moving feature of this music video is the audience's outpouring of love for Stevie and his music. The enormous London concert hall is packed with thousands and thousands of adoring Stevie Wonder fans. The vast majority are white Europeans who appear to be the age of my daughter and Stevie's daughter. Stevie's music, Stevie's humanity transcend national origin, ethnicity, skin color and age. These fans know that they've experienced something wonderful that they will pass down like a priceless heirloom to their children and their children's children.
Only one small gripe: The A/V team failed to do this Blu-ray full justice. To my knowledge this is Stevie's only HD production. As such, I expected them to do a better job with the A/V editing. The background vocals were only marginally mixed into the DTS audio track, but fortunately Stevie is so amazing that he carried the day. The video and camera work was also marginal. With a better job on the production end, this could have been classic.
That said, Stevie was AWESOME. If you are a fan, you will most definitely want this Blu-ray.
This dvd gives you shots from all angles! Close ups you wouldn't see at the actual concert. I'm thankful that I did see Stevie at least 3 times when I was younger and physically able. Stevie is an artist who gives you your moneys worth! Being from the old school, THERE'S NO LIP-SYNCHING and REAL music!!! Now, with this dvd, I can see and hear him in concert mode as often as I wish! How sweet is that???
One disappointment is that there are no extras or backstage interviews, had they included some old footage from years past it would be a better package. But whose complaining, I am glad to have this DVD at long last, maybe next time.
