Movie Reviews

This just in : rock and roll is alive and well
Jeff Wiley | Atlanta, GA | 03/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There has been much talk of the death of rock and roll in the last couple of decades, but I disagree. Like most elements of our world, rock music has evolved, and it has morphed into different sounds and different genres. The purest form of rock music, however, has been kept alive in recent years - almost exclusively - by the Black Crowes.

Maybe the best thing about this concert DVD is that it is truly representative of a standard Crowes show. Most of their shows consist of a good cross-section of songs from all of their recordings, as well as an unreleased cut or two, extended jams, and a couple of choice covers thrown in. The Crowes are known for never playing the same show twice, and quite simply, this band doesn't know how to not bring it strong each and every night. This is not a band that needs to hide behind stage theatrics nor excessive effects to entertain. To coin a phrase, it's simply the music that does the talking. Each Crowes concert is a unique experience unto itself, and this DVD is lightning in a bottle.

Having been a fan of this band since the beginning, I can state with confidence that the band is hitting on all cylinders at this point in time more than any other. Chalk that up to life experience, a new maturity, or something else, the Crowes are peaking at a time in their career when most musical artists are looking at their best days in the rearview mirror. The Black Crowes are choosing to write new history, and inviting everyone along for The Song.

Hit the lights, light your favorite incense, and turn up your surround sound. Rock and roll has many forms, but in its purest form, it is the truth, and the Black Crowes are the truth."
The way a concert DVD should be presented...

"...long, lingering shots of the band and of individuals; not the herky jerky, quick pan and switch of most concerts. This one is spot on and brilliant, EXCEPT...except for the grainy homemade stuff, like the guys walking the streets during the incredible groove the band is in performing MY MORNING SONG. I would MUCH rather have watched Marc Ford, Rich Robinson, and Steve Gorman onstage than some amateur video doodling. I was honestly in another world listening to that song...it's THAT trippy!

This is a great...make that GREAT...show. For the price, it's a steal, and, unlike many of the over 200 concerts I have on DVD, this one will find its way to the player many times. Whether you're experiencing it alone, or playing it over or under a party, it's a no-brainer...and this is coming from someone who gave up on the Crowes after the second album. Imagine that!

Get ready for The Black Crowes!

"I think it's selling the Crowes short to put too much energy into comparing them to their musical influences. They are one of the best ROCK & ROLL bands since 1990 - period. We are fortunate to still be able to see them live. I must thank the honchos at the record company who finally signed off on a BLACK C R O W E S DVD! I've seen so many amateur video of the Crowes in concert and been lucky to see them in person 30+ times. It will be fantastic to own a full-length pro-shot Crowes DVD.

Get ready for The Black Crowes!"
Food for your soul....

"It is impossible to put into words where the Crowes fit into the history of Rock & Roll, and that's mainly because there's never been anyone who does EXACTLY what they do.

From the liner notes:
""It would be one thing to competently reproduce others past glories but what really puts the Crowes in the same category as the Beatles and Stones is the quality of their own material."

This DVD will make you feel good - it's just that simple. I can't believe you can get this much value for $10. The band could have charged 3 times that, and I wouldn't have blinked an eye. Everyone is in top form on this disc, and the performances are incredible. This band can make even the most grizzled and jaded music listener smile from ear to ear. Buy the disc, and then go see them live - it will change your life."
