Movie Reviews

A Performance Par Excellence!
M. Edwards | Buckinghamshire United Kingdom | 02/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Josephine Baker would've been proud of Miss Ross. This Caesar's Palace concert was a spectacular all singing, all dancing event that showcased Diana's incredible talents. The glamour, glitz and the sheer razzmataz all hailed from by-gone era.

Firstly, the chanteuse was in her prime vocally - her voice had matured nicely, but it was still strong and honey-toned. Secondly, Diana looked breathtakingly beautiful and radiant. And thirdly, her performance was inspired and heart-felt; she gave this performance 100%, and proved that she was the consummate entertainer.

There are several highlights to the show, but the songs from The Boss album were superb - "I Ain't Been Licked", "It's My House", "No One Gets the Prize", "The Boss" and the lovely "All For One". Other highlights included a moving "Lady Sings the Blues" segment; her rendition of "My Man" was emotional and poignant.

"I Want to Be Bad" is sassy but classy. And of course, no Ross concert would be complete without that perennially popular "Reach Out And Touch". Diana's mother looked so proud when she was introduced to everyone. It was good seeing Marvin Gaye joining in with the fun.

What this show now needs is the proper packaging and re-mastering it deserves. Until then, we'll have to make do with this DVD while we take a trip down memory lane. This is a live performance par excellence. Get it - you won't regret it!

Five Star Concert & Three Star DVD

"This concert is from HBO's Standing Room Only Concert Series.

This is a portrait of Miss Ross at her entertaining best. She sings, she dances, she makes 'em laugh and she lets the peons touch her. Its absolutely great. If anyone had any doubts about whether or not the lady could sing they should check this out. She gives a full throated performance of her greatest hits up until that time. Her Ashford and Simpson written and produced album, "The Boss" is well represented here. From the title song to "I Ain't Been Licked" to "All For One" Diana works the crowd and rocks the house.

The lady looks beautiful. The staging is great. When she walks out of her own face on the screen to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" it may take your breath away. She ends this spectacular performance by exiting the venue carried away by muscle men. No wonder Billboard Magazine named her Entertainer of the Century.

My favorite song in this concert is "God Bless the Child."

The quality of the DVD is not the best, true. Pay attention to the magic and you'll be glad you have a copy. An essential for real Ross fans."
One of the greatest filmed concerts ever!

"Although I continue to love her and see her live any time she pops into my area, this HBO concert will always hold a special place for me. I was 8 or 9 when it first aired on HBO, and I was instantly addicted. Her voice is extremely powerful in this show. People often comment that Ross is not a power-house vocalist, but I seriously disagree, and this concert proves it. Just listen to how she belts out the Broadway showtune, "Home," and tell me otherwise. It is the definitive version of that song. Whitney who? Mariah what? No sir, for the greatest combination of pure vocals/song styles, one must begin and end with Miss Ross. Other highlights include: "It's My House," "God Bless The Child," and "Touch Me In the Morning.""
