Everything that is GOOD about REAL music....5STARS all the w
Richardson | Sunny California USA | 02/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chris Smither is a real musician, he writes songs from life experiences that have humour and heart ...he sings in a conversational style accented by a lisp and world weariness. Mr Smithers is a stunningly original guitarist and this combination of singer/songwriter/musician ...sadly today in our world adds up to obscurity and playing to dozens of people at a time in guitar venues and house concerts...and folk clubs....while untalented freaks sell millions and get police escorts to rehab. THAT SAID...
if you can't get to a show this is a beautiful piece of work...and on top of that the bonus footage is also a kick. Okay...Its obvious I'm a fan but that only means I'd have been critical if this wasn't as good as Chris is live and he's great...I saw him open for John Renbourn at the legendary McCabes in LA years back and he blew him off the was ridiculous how much better he was than the headliner.
This is the kind of music that doesn't get traded in next month , next year, but given to your kids when they get tired of FAKE music...
good job Chris and THANKS!"
A couple nights and a day with Chris Smither

"I used to be lucky enough to see Chris play live regularly when I lived in Boston, but haven't had the chance in 8 years so I was eagerly anticipating watching this dvd. It was everything I hoped for. As always with concerts, I would have tinkered with the song list a little but even though my favorite's missing, there are lots of great songs here.

1. Train Home
2. Origin of Species
3. The Devil's Real
4. Link of Chain
5. Happier Blue
6. Interview I
7. Drive You Home Again
8. Leave The Light On
9. Sittin' On Top Of The World
10. Small Revelations
11. Love You Like A Man
12. Interview II
13. Father's Day
14. No Love Today
15. Diplomacy
16. Caveman
17. Statesboro Blues

That makes up the main portion of the disc, the 78 minutes listed on the back cover. But there's another 22 minutes of bonus music, half from another concert with additional musicians and half Chris playing at home. Those songs are:

Hold On I
John Hardy
Seems So Real

I Feel the Same
Every Mother's Son

Amazon originally had two listings for this; I don't know if there really were two versions (only one listed on Signature's website), but after the other one I had originally ordered being out of stock for weeks while this one was in stock, I contacted them and had them send this one. This is not widescreen; go by the ratio shown, not the word listed in the description.

There's a good mix of longer views and closeups of Chris's face, hands playing, and feet tapping. It all sounds and looks great to me."
A night with Chris

"I love this DVD. It is well produced and shows a talented man doing what he does best. It was done in two takes according to the blurb with a live audience and also gives some insight into his past and where he has come from. The music is supported beautifully by foot stomps, great guitar riffs and that gravely voice resulting in a rare gift to his audience and it keeps on and on. I must confess that I could have listened for another hour it is so good."
Where has he been all my life?!

"I found Chris Smither on Itunes when I listened to a snippet of a cover he had done of a Dylan song. I was immediately entranced. Then I listened to some of his original work and was impressed by his creativity, his unique turn of phrase, his dry/sly sense of humor. His guitar playing is phenomenal. I started searching for more of his work and found this DVD on Amazon. As I have watched it, I have become even more of a fan and his songs are often running in my head. He's got some years on him...I don't know why I never heard of him 'til now, but I'm glad I've finally become aware of him and his talent."
