All Those Songs.....And Not A Bad One In The Bunch!
9 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You get a lot for your money here: about an hour and three-quarters of Bonnie Raitt songs, her hits and otherwise. Just about every song is a winner because her voice fits her blues- rock material extremely well and her band is outstanding. She comments at one point about her band being the "best" their is, and she may not be far off.

There is so much music here I often break this up into a couple of viewings, but no matter where I pick this back up in the concert, it's a good starting point because it's simply one good song after another. You'd except a dud here or there, but it's just not the case.

The first part of the concert has more upbeat songs, so it you want a 45-minute fast-moving mini-concert, the first nine songs will do well. It's a good workout disc, too! Later on, Raitt goes through several slow songs in a row and the tape ends with the slow-but-dramatic "Angel From Montgomery."

Guests include Bruce Hornsby, Jackson Browne, Bryan Adams, Kim Wilson and the old blues couple Ruth and Charles Brown. All of them are excellent, as well.

The only thing missing in this DVD is more colorful camera-work. That would have really made this a spectacular concert disc. Hey, the the music is the main attraction here anyway, so I am not complaining. I used to own this on VHS but acquired the DVD because of the better sound.

Obviously, this is very highly recommended.
