RBSProds | Deep in the heart of Texas | 11/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Four and a Half BIG Stars!!! David Clayton-Thomas, arguably the greatest Blood, Sweat, & Tears lead vocalist, revisits those great Grammy-winning days of jazz, rock, blues, and ballad hits produced by one of rock's greatest instrumentally-charged groups, and he adds in hits from his own solo singing career. None of the other BS&T stars are here at this live performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2006, but DC-T is riding a tight, pumped-up band of brass, reeds, woodwinds, and percussion, with a dash of electronics. David's inimitable dramatic voice is MAGNIFICENT, as is his control of nuance and dynamics: the clock has not ticked for this great voice. Classics like "Spinning Wheel" , "You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Go Down Gamblin' ", and "God Bless the Child" are wonderful recollections of the BS&T days. And DC-T's own "You're The One" is breath-taking beauty. But the rousing performance that steals the show, even from the wonderful gospel choir at the end, is composer Steve Winwood's wild and weird "Forty Thousand Headmen": great vocals, soaring orchestral playing, and great Bruce Cassidy electronic solos with a slick arrangement riffing off the original BS&T recording. Only a badly-miked tenor sax solo kept this one from perfection, but those things happen on live shows. Thomas takes the original arrangements, adds different vocal nuances, and plugs in super-charged instrumental solos: exactly what most of us will want. And he delivers, BIG TIME: Highly Recommended to all and ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for Blood, Sweat, and Tears fans. Four and a Half HUGE Stars!! (DVD, color, NTSC-all regions, 120 minutes with David Clayton-Thomas interview)"
Only one word GREAT

"Even though I know much of the music and everything about this DVD, I have to take it out and play it in the car (no, I only hear it and not watching the DVD while driving) when I got it from the mail; and into my DVD player after I got home. It is wonderful to see him sing and he sounds as great as ever. And the interview on the disk is full of personal and insightful material. His new CD (The evergreens) is also wonderful with many new songs. I am glad that he returned to Toronto after the BS&T days."
