Movie Reviews

Mandatory Viewing Assignment ! ! ! (Soul 101)

"Bobby Womack can definitely be said to be an American original. An old school soul singer/songwriter who practically invented his own school... There are no cliches in his music... Bobby Womack *is* Bobby Womack... and its all for the better. - - What's amazing about this DVD is that he performs and sings the songs as if they were written yesterday... His voice hasn't changed a bit... He's looking great too... pretty amazing when you realize this guy started out working for Sam Cooke during the golden age of soul... Aside from his ability to write memorable hits, when you think of all this guys peers, and how few of them are still on the planet... its almost as if this guy is a gift to the world from the fountain of youth... And the great thing about this DVD : his energy and vibrance still show him to be the star that he is... plus he has no shame in playing the tunes the people want to hear. All in all... even though this video wasn't made "back in the day", its still a rare gem. - - At my bar here in Tokyo, I can't tell you how many customers demand I put it on the player every time they come in... and believe me, I have no complaints about that whatsoever !"
Did I watch something these other folks didn't here?

"I review concerts and erotic films....sometimes I review normal films too...
But I happen to know a quality show when I see one on DVD...and this was not one! I love the music of Mr. Womack and have many of his original records...and CD's.

That being said....I expected so much more from this live show recorded off of BET televison. This was not one of his best perfomances I am sure. I was disappointed by his lack of professionalism performing some of his biggest hit songs.

Most people go to see a live show to hear the songs (in basic form) the original way an artist once recorded it. Performers like the Eagles, Boz Scaggs, Tom Jones, Luther Vandross to name a few...deliver on that important performing aspect sounding like the "original version". Mr. Womack did a poor job of making me believe he wanted to be there singing that night....he seemed to rather sit down and chat with the audience about his long career...instead of concentrating on singing really well. His voice cut out on him many times and sounded powerless....he butchured much of his best material.

The sound quality of this DVD was just average as well....I was highly disappointed by it for many may be too!"

"There are two issues here. (1)The editorial review claims on the songlist "Harry Hippie" as one of the offerings on this DVD.
This is not so, and bearing in mind that I purchased same for that song more than anything else I feel cheated as I was looking forward to seeing bobby perform same.Someone owes me an apology and a refund.(2)Having said that I think the performance was good in general but Mr. Womack spoke too much thus detracting from an otherwise captivating performance."
