Jane Olivor HAS Arrived!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jane Olivor has finally done it! Releasing a concert dvd. This has to be a stroke of genius on her part. Olivor's live shows are a true event! I've seen Ms. Olivor at least 20 times from 1979 to 2003. Each show is unique, and better than the last. When she disappeared in 1983, she left behind a legion of bewildered and saddened fans, myself included. Over the years I've managed to acquire several bootleg video concerts of the vintage Ms. Olivor. I've played them so much, they're almost worn out. But now, us fans have a permanent record of "the voice" that will last forever.I managed to receive an advance copy of this dvd. Well, it has never left my dvd player. I remember choosing the on-camera interview first. Jane tells of her humble beginnings, her family's influence, how she started singing, and what made her leave the music scene so abruptly. The interview is frank and insightful. I found it very informative. For most of us fans, we know how rare it is for Jane to talk about herself. So, this portion of the dvd is a real treat. She is articulate, at ease, and very funny, as she shares anecdotes about her career.So, after the interview, I'm ready to see the concert portion. I'm really psyched for Jane, she's come so far since her comeback. The concert starts with "You" from the Chasing Rainbows cd. She comes out with a big smile, and looks fantastic. Jane still has the same effect on me she had in 1979. The little hairs on the back of my neck stand when I hear her sing. She then eases into "Warm" "Let's Make Some Memories" which now has an updated spin "Let's Make New Memories," a clever lyric change, which now seems fitting. Jane then moves into "Annie's Song" She makes you forget that John Denver wrote it, and she steals it right away from him. Jane then goes into banter about her and Johnny Mathis, and then sings "The Last Time I Felt Like This" from the film "Same Time, Next Year".Jane Olivor has included most of her signature songs, and a few new ones, which are destined to become classics in her catalog. For instance, she does a version of "How are Things in Glocca Mora" from Finian's Rainbow, and cleverly incorporates the song from the film Rob Roy, "Ailein Duinn" with it. WOW!! what a great combination! it will give you goosebumps. The song "Safe Return" is another new one, with a beautiful melody and touching lyrics, Jane's trademark!! "I Believe" is another classic suited to her unique vocal style.The official release of this dvd is April 27th. I highly recommend it!! It's a definite keeper. With her voice sounding better than ever, I'm confident that this dvd will give Jane Olivor the acclaim that has unfairly eluded her."
This Magnificent Vocalist Shines Yet Again !!!!!

"As a loving fan of this truly gifted artist, I was amazed and enthralled upon seeing this fantastic DVD. She's Back, she's Fantastic, she's older and filled with Confidence, Wisdom and Elegance. She is also Beautiful!!!! Every track is an absolute treasure. My favorites are "Stay the Night, Daydreams, Brooklyn Roads, Run For The Roses, Annie's Song, L'Important C'est la Rose"--- in actuality
every single track is flawless, beautiful Jane Olivor in all her brillance. I cannot imagine anyone finding fault with this amazing concert. One of the great aspects of Jane Olivor is that she is, mysteriously, not well known by all. Those of us who have loved her for so, so many years have yet another wonderful veichle to appreciate her emense talent and legendary career."

"I've purchased several copies of this DVD for holiday gifts because I'm convinced that anyone who experiences Jane Olivor's voice will claim to be her number one fan. Never has a singer so beautifully wrapped a voice around every single word of a song. Streisand and Midler should only sing backup for this extraordinary artist. The song "Safe Return" alone is worth more than the price of the DVD or CD."
Still A great Talent

"I was about just a teenager when "first night" came out. I am not even sure WHY I bought it..I think because she sang "better days" and I loved Melissa Manchester. In any event, I brought home "First Night" and fell in love with Jane Olivor's voice and style. Jane brings to her fans "crowded Island" for the time as well as "Safe Return", a beautiful cover of "Brooklyn Roads" as well as "Sipping wine" a song she often performed in the 70's but never shared with us on record. For any fan of Jane Olivor's Music, they will totally love this dvd."
