"No, Danny Peek is not with them, but this, in my opinion, is the best concert video of America presently available. It is in 5.1 Digital, but doesn't really add much to the quality of sound. I have seen America at least 7 times in Concert and i would rank this as #3 as the best of their concerts, from the standpoint of energy and showmanship. They have had better playlists, would have like to have heard "Riverside", "California Revisited", and "To Each His Own", but all in all a good set. "Sandman" is just awesome, never wanted the song to end. For the money, an excellent buy. as always, Amazon delivers timely and as offered."

"I love this band and was very excited to get this DVD. When I watched it, however, I was disappointed. The sound quality is terrible, but that is probably due to the film's age. It was enjoyable, though, to see Gerry and Dewey at the height of their fame and the prime of their career. There are other America DVDs out there that provide a much better listening and viewing experience. Save your money and buy one of those."

"Add this DVD to your collection. I was 18 years old the summer this was recorded. After watching the DVD all I can say is... I wish I had been at the show!!! The scenes of Central Park, the backdrop for the concert are entertaining and alive with activity that one would only see in Central Park during the '70's! You really get a sense of time and place watching that and anyone who was around then will know what I mean. The energy of the band is amazing and infectious. It was true nostalgia watching them do hits like Tin Man, I Need You, Ventura Highway, Horse With No Name and then...they lit the stage on fire with All Night, Here, Hollywood, and Sandman. (During which guitarist Michael Wood's expressions as he plays are priceless!)and I realized what great musicians they all are as well as being able to write hits etc. Thanks America- we love you!!!"
