Good but not great
23 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its great, but lots of performances are missing. For example Queen. The DVD only had Crazy Little Thing Called Love, but Queen did perform 4 other songs that date. Same with others Madonna, Rolling Stones.. It does have performances from 60's, (like Ray Charles) all the way to 2003. Its good but as i said earlier, lots and lots of performances are missing. Its like Live Aid, artists and musicians performed but where did their other songs go? I just wish they would include everything. So if you have some money laying around, get it. If not, then its not really worth it. I paid $14.99 for mine by the way, which i wouldn't have now if i only knew that they would show each artist perform their one song.
