I attended this actual show!

"I was actually at this Dave Mason concert which was recorded live at the Sunrise Musical Theatre in Sunrise, Florida (Fort Lauderdale). I have read the other reviews here at this site and many complain that the show was short. There is a reason Dave Mason did not play for very long. It is because he was not the headliner for the event. Dave Mason was the opening act. The headliner was Deep Purple. They also recorded their show and you can buy their DVD...which they called Perihelion. The audience was aware that the shows were being taped so the audience was extra boisterous. On a side note...the Sunrise Musical Theatre no longer hosts concerts. It was bought out a few years ago and is now a Church."

"Dave Mason sounds as good today as he did 30 years ago. This latest live concert "Live At Sunrise" shows that this legendary rock guitarist has not lost a step in his ability to play or sing. The DVD quality is crystal clear with superior digital surround sound. It's is such a pleasure to actually watch a musician with talent who can actually play as compared to these modern day computerized lip-synchronized pop phenoms who can't sing a note let alone play? Dave and his band turn in some fine performances such as "Only You Know And I Know", "We Just Disagree, the Traffic classics, "Dear Mr. Fantasy", and "Feelin' Alright" and a blistering version of "All Along The Watchtower" which has become a standard at a Dave Mason concert. He continues to sing as if he were still 25 years old and this concert is as good if not better then his classic 1976 "Certified live" album. A bonus live behind the scenes interview is very interesting as mason is seen giving pointers to his band members backstage. He also makes it clear that he would like to reunite with old Traffic mates Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi just once more. My only complaint is the concert could have been a tad longer[only nine songs] clocking in at 66 minutes. Still this is all quality and if your a fan of classic rock music, it does not get any better than this."
A very pleasant surprise

"$20 (a month) + Netflix = opportunities to audition numerous concert DVD's. Some are better than others but occasionally you come across a real gem. Such is Live at Sunrise. Sound and video are excellent and the camera work is some of the best. You actually get to focus on the camera shots. This is how a show should be recorded - lots of stage shots and close ups of Dave's very talented playing (as well as the other members). If you like Dave's music, Traffic in their prime and you're a baby boomer like me then you'll probably like this one.Oh yeah, 4 stars???? Well it's in full screen. Anamorphic would have rated 5 starts."

"I have been a Dave Mason fan since the 70s. I'm amazed he has not lost a thing he just get's better. I can't believe some of the petty complaints written here from other reviewers. Yes, I wish it were longer but that would not stop me from buying it. I thought the band was tight as hell. Dave still has a great voice and man he can still play. The song selection was excellent, I also have (Live At Perkins Palace) in my opinion I think that one is not as good. This (Live At Sunrise) is way better, also the DTS is very clean the picture quality is also excellent, well done Dave thank you."
