"I was lucky enough to both see this band in Montreal on the 2000 tour and catch the CBC special after the tour wrapped up. This is an extended version of the special, and a magical night it was for Winnipegers and GW fans everywhere. The night they played Montreal, the video cameras were on them as they were headed to the stage, and the thunder that came from the audience would make you think God had approached the stage...Bachman and Cummings are the Lennon & McCartney of the Great White North, and from the performances that night and on the CD...they're playing better than they ever did the first time around (and I had seen them back in 1971). Some people may consider Mr. Cummings a bit full of himself...but he's earned it if he comes across that way...the legendary material he and Randy (and all his other collaborators in the band including the late Kurt Winter) have given us over the years is some truly great rock & roll...this band deserves a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...if the powers that be ever get their heads in the right geographical location. The morning after I saw the Guess Who in Montreal, the morning guy on CHOM-FM said it all: "I've been to a ton of concerts over the years, but I've never been to a show where I sang along with every single song all the way through... but I did last night." This is one of those shows...worth your money and worth them taking it on the road again next year (and hopefully to the US as well as Canada...if not, I guess I'll just travel north again). Bravo Burton, Randy, Bill, Donnie and Garry. After 35, nearly 40 years I am still a solid fan!"
Great Concert but...

"First, I want to let everyone know that I think this band and this concert is absolutely fantastic! My problem with the DVD is that there are six bonus songs that must be accessed on their own menu, and most of the songs they consider bonus songs are from the concert this very concert. What makes them bonus songs??? To make matters worse, there is no option to simply choose to play all of the bonus songs. You have to choose each one individually to hear it. I almost rated this 4 stars instead of 5 for this bit of stupidity on the part of the DVD programmer. But, I love the band and wish them all the best. Buy this disk anyway and enjoy it. But, as for the person responsible for the bogus bonus songs, they deserve a spanking!"
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!!! WHAT A CONCERT!!!!!

"I rate this Guess Who concert above and beyond the standard 5 stars. It's fabulous.There are about 22 songs including their bonus songs.Burton Cummings has not lost anything over the years. Not even his boyish and crazy charm with adorable,sexy expressions.He looks great and is as gorgeous as ever.If possible, Burtons voice is better than it ever was.They do all their hits almost exactly in the original format with alot of extra added to them.I loved them back in the 60's and 70's and do still now.Randys incredible on the guitar too with mega closeups of his hands playing.Infact, ever solitary one of them are incredible musicians.Better than I remember.American woman was done in such an incredible way but one song that sticks out as well is Talisman.They have never performed it in concert other than in their Finland concert tour.It seems to me that all the groups that were popular when I was young(Not that I'm that old.I am 48 to be exact) are coming back or or are still going strong.It goes to show exactly where all the musical talents lie and there is no doubt in my mind that The Guess Who is back and will be for a very long time.The songs performed are:Albert Flasher, No Time, These Eyes,Glamour Boy,Rain Dance,American Woman,Talisman,No Sugar Tonight,Lookin' Out for #1,Share the Land,New Mother Nature,Runnin' Back to Saskatoon,Takin' Care of Business,Laughing,Bus Rider & Undun.Plus you get 6 bonus songs and a 20 minute interview and rehersal hall segment.The Guess Who plays for their home town crowd in Winnipeg and the crowd adores them and it is very obvious.Infact, the group performed in a very bad thunder and lightening storm that included severe down pours but never the less with the bad storm and all the entire crowd didn't budge.They stayed for the entire concert rain and all.It was so dangerous that the group had to leave the stage for about an hour and when they returned everyone was still there.Absolutely one incredible and very exciting concert from one of the best musical talents in the world.I recommend this to everyone.It is well worth the price.I have many concerts plus I am a musician and this has got to be now my favorite.I don't know what else to say other than if you are a Guess Who fan then you will most assuredly love this dvd.I recommend buying it before you can't anymore.The entire concert is over 2 hours.Also....the camera man did one heck of a job filming this with many closeups of all their faces and their hands playing.The band features Burton Cummings,Randy Bachman,Garry Peterson,Donnie Mc Dougall and Bill Wallace.Simply awesome!!!!What a performance they give!!!!!"
GUESS WHO STILL CAUSING ELECTRICITY IN THE AIR

"I was not sure how well these guys could still play, after all they have been around a long time. Well I can now safely say I was not disappointed. They still sounded great although a bit toned down in the vocal department, which is understandable being that they are pushing past 60 in some cases. Randy Bachman
seems to benifit from the years of playing beyond The Guess Who,he really hits every note and jams the solo's more than ever. He was a real joy to watch and the standout of the show.
The sound and visual quality of the show were quite good. The mixing was well done, and the set list was great. There was a Thunder and Lightening rumbling in the backround, which was quite fitting, as The Guess Who were creating some sparks of their own. Only one thing bugged me just a little about the DVD, it has six bonus tracks which is great but you can not play them along with the regular show. You have to go into a seperate menu and start each song, one by one kind of dumb. I mean ok gimmie bonus/encore tracks let me just watch them without all the monkey business. Otherwise top flight DVD of one of the most classic rock bands ever. GET IT TODAY!"
