ELTONS BIRTHDAY SPECIAL: Hacked to pieces like a birthday cake...
First off, I have been a fan of Eltons for ages. I attended this concert at Madison Square Garden, and was thrilled that it was to be taped for TV. What I attended: one of the best concert experiences ever, what was shown on TV: a hacked up, event, with what had to be one of the worst sound mixes EVER! The editor's (four of the absolute worst) tried to make us believe that Elton's celebration party, the night before at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and the actual birthday concert took place on the same day. Comeon guys! The song selections were noticeably out of order, and the inter-cut celebrity well wishing/comments were annoying as well as distracting.
For the sound, It was so poorly mixed that sometimes you could barely hear Sir Elton's voice over the piano. (Thank you Susan Pelino.) Was I glad this was broadcast on TV? Of course, but I wish they had used some equally matched talent to EJ in putting the package together.
