Movie Reviews

As Crisp As A Live Recording Can Be
Martin A Hogan | San Francisco, CA. (Hercules) | 01/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recording with an audience of less than 1,000, this DVD feels like a club recording with it's Dolby Ditigal and DTS audio sound. Host Mark McEwen gushes a tad much and the 'Live by Request' gimmick is not original. Still, it manages to captivate. Fifteen songs (one a medley of eight), five being from the last album, it's a collection that defies the ear with the groups tight instrumentals and harmonies. "She Keep On Coming" and "You Should Be Dancing" rock the house, while "Sacred Trust" and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" lull the audience into a trance. This recording is unique in that there are plenty of star 'call-ins' and lots of joking around. Its surprising to hear Barry sing, "Woman In Love", but "Nights On Broadway" is, once again, cut far too short for a song that contains some of their best work.This is as close as a great live recording gets and a DVD well worth owning. "One Night Only" is a great live recording as well, but nothing matches the intimacy of this presentation."
Magnificent live performances

"Alright, I admit the "phone in" gimmick is corny and a distraction, but you can simply fast forward the calls. Buy this for the music, which is absolutely gorgeous. The Bee Gees have always given stellar live performances, replicating their original records as close as possible. Well, I have news: this live performance beats any I have heard, it's *that good.* The Bee Gees, like McCartney, have always taken great pains to sing their songs live as closely as possible to the original. I appreciate this and their efforts to duplicate their classics here meet with much success. Particularly amazing is Robin's haunting, gorgeous vocal on "I Started a Joke," one of the great Bee Gees of all time. Similarly impressive is "New York Mining Disaster," which shows the brothers still had the ability to harmonize beautifully.The only slight criticism is Barry's high notes and falsetto, which he strains to reach, especially on "Stayin' Alive." He's backed up with some invisible (and pre-recorded) mystery voices, but his ability to sustain the high notes has decreased with time. Personally, I don't care. This is an awesome live performance and for anyone who admires the brothers Gibb, this is something from which you'll derive hours of enjoyment."
EXCELLENT!

"If you're a huge Bee Gees fan as I am, then you'll LOVE this DVD! It also brings about a new meaning since Maurice Gibb's death on January 12, 2003. Also, don't forget "One Night Only"! I've been a Bee Gees fan as long as I can remember, & these 2 DVDs are MUST HAVES for avid Bee Gees fans like myself :)"
Fantastic !! Brillant Performance !

"...I not only have this video but I'm buying another one just to have has back-up!!This video has got to be one of the most entertaining Bee Gee videos I have ever seen. The live phone calls and emails only enhances the fun of this video. The interaction only gives Barry, Robin and Maurice the opportunity to not only have a great time but to show their witty and great personalities. Maurice is absolutely hilarious to watch through out the entire concert. It's very obvious the brothers are having a wonderful time.Their musical performance is exceptional. The vocal ranges and harmonies are better now than 30 years ago. The maturity in their vocals has only enhanced their sound. Incredible indeed! I not only recommend buying this video I think it would be a sin not to. You would only be cheating yourself out of a great time. "This is Where I Came In" is an exceptional new Bee Gee's album and their performance of those songs on this video is dynamic. You will be off your seat dancing that's for sure.If you buy it and hate it ...well you may want to check to see if you are alive and breathing. TEN STARS FOR SURE !!!!!!"
