Absolutely Great Stuff

"If you don't know the difference between Spears and Joplin, don't bother with this DVD.
Lauper is absolutely amazing. She has an incredible voice and is a consummate entertainer. I was completely enthralled with her and her band's performance.
All live performance DVD's should be like this one. The sound is utterly incredible. The filming is perfect. There's nothing flashy or artsy to distract from the experience.
On a personal note: Lauper is sexier than ever. Not that she has been, but Lauper has far too much class and talent to be called a Diva; nonetheless, she sure can sing circles around so many of today's pop icons.
You will not be disappointed."
After all these years, Cyndi still has it going on

"Track listing:Program Start, At Last, Stay, I Drove All Night, If You Go Away, All Through The Night, Walk On By, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, She Bop, Sisters Of Avalon, Change Of Heart, True Colors, Shine, It's Hard To Be Me, Money Changes Everything, Unchained Melody, Time After Time, Girls Just Want To Have Fun, Credits.One thing that has always been true about Cyndi Lauper is that she will go out of her way to give her fans a great live show, regardless of whether she's performing at a small record store for free or at a sold-out major event concert. The location and number of people attending doesn't matter...Cyndi gives everything she's got when she performs live. And this new DVD "Live At Last," recorded at her March 11, 2004 gig at The Town Hall in New York, is certainly no exception. This DVD will surely satisfy both long-time fans as well as those who have only recently discovered Cyndi's music with her most recent album "At Last," as the track listing (see above) contains songs from both her old-school catalog as well as her renditions of the classics. I certainly appreciate her newer stuff but to me, the best part of this concert is hearing and seeing her perform her trademark songs such as the beautiful "Time After Time" and my personal favorite, "I Drove All Night." These songs may have been written a long time ago, but Cyndi proves with this concert that time certainly has not taken away any of the magic that made them so great. There are also some great bonus features, a lot more substantial than what most concert DVD's offer:
Stay Music Video
Driving With Cyndi
Shoot It Yourself! with Cyndi and Kevin
DiscographyAll in all, a must-have for any Cyndi Lauper fan, even the casual one. And for the price that it's offered here you would be crazy not to buy it."

"I have been a casual fan of Cyndi Lauper's since she hit it big with Girls Just Want to have Fun.
I like a few of her songs and even own two albums. After seing this DVD I am now completely converted. She is without a doubt a consummate performer. Her voice seems stronger than ever and what she does with words in her songs is inspired and touching.
I also love how she is unpredictable and one gets the feeling that every night she would do something different onstage and not follow a routine a la Madonna/Britney/Cher etc etc.
She is also very personable and you feel as though she really wants to connect with her audience and take them on a journey.
If you like Cyndi, you will LOVE this DVD!

"I remember when Cyndi went to Brazil to promote A Night To Remember and I couldn't go to the show because of my age (I was 12 at the time) but I wanted to see her live so badly that I asked my mom to take me to the stadium and we stayed outside in the car listening to the concert, it was amazing! At the moment I live in London and I had already booked a 5-day break in New York a couple of months ago when I decided to go on-line and check if there were any good concerts on and to my surprise I found out that Cyndi was performing at the Town Hall. I booked the tickets and was counting the hours to the show. That was quite a night! Cyndi was so great, she sang my favorite song (I Drove All Night) and the songs from At Last sounded beautiful, even better that the studio versions. She was so talkative and natural and her voice...oh my god I never heard such wonderful voice in all my life! After the concert I was over the moon and as I walked through the (almost) empty streets of New York I thought about the show and felt such a buzz, I was happier than I've been in quite a long time...now I am counting the hours to the release of the DVD...it's so cool to know that I will be able to watch the show again and again and the fact that was part of it makes it even more special! Thank you for you Cyndi!"
