Movie Reviews

This is the same set as the Musikladen DVD!
E. Rinehart | puerto rico | 11/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you missed you chance to buy the now out of print Musikladen dvd, this is the exact same set. Not a concert per se since there is no audience, just the cameras at a tv studio. This is the original trio. The performances are a little stiff due to the lack of feedback from the absent audience.

It has great video and audio, unlike the "Live in central park" dvd which has awful audio. This DVD and the 1999 Öhne Filter (also German!)dvd are the ones to get. Skip the Central park one."
The original trio, live at the top of their game.
R. J. Vaccaro | Burbank, CA | 11/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For America fans, this DVD is a must have. The band is presented in its original trio formation in a "live in the studio" setting performing a majority of their hits. There are no stage theatrics, no side members competing for a moment in the spotlight. Rather, it is like witnessing a rehearsal when the band was in it's prime.

The beauty of this document is you get to see and hear what all three core members bring to the table: musicianship, songwriting talent and chemistry. These guys had it. Especially interesting are the few numbers where the boys go electric and dial up the energy level. After all of this time it easy to forget the dynamic the three of them had. A few years after this event Dan Peek would bow out of the group. While Bunnell and Beckley have kept the proceedings going ever since (nearly 30 remarkable years), their star never shined as bright nor the chemistry been as compelling as it was during the 1970s. This time capsule is a fitting showcase for one of the most successful bands to emerge from that decade."
Their BEST live recording!
A Fan | VA | 08/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is America's best live performance captured on DVD or CD and the only one with all three original members! It was recorded live in a German TV studio, with no audience, in 1975. They were at their peak then both musically and in popularity. This performance shows what made them one of the most popular bands of the 70's. Their performance has more of a "classic rock" feel to it than their 1977 "Live!" album. It contains their early hits plus several songs that they rarely perform anymore. "Moon Song", "California Revisted", and "Green Monkey" really rock! If this had been released in the 70's, it would have been a big hit."
Yes, it is the same MUSIKLADEN show, but it is very good!

"The out-of-print MUSIKLADEN dvd is sellling for $70 at the üsed and new sellers in Amazon. This is the one to buy!

Your only chance to see the original trio, the only bad thing is that they are playing to an empty studio and it really shows in their lack of energy and give-and-take missing by not having an audience. Still a good performance."
