Movie Reviews

The Blind Boys of Alabama "Live in New Orleans" W/Special Gu
Gary Covington | Louisiana | 02/28/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THIS DVD CONTAINS SOME GREAT SOUTHERN GOSPEL ("BLIND BOYS FROM ALABAMA STYLE"), WITH A NEW ORLEANS FLAVOR ("PLENTY OF RYTHUM & BLUES & SOME JAZZ"). Plus you get guest musicians of Susan Tedeschi (She is an outstanding blues vocalist), Dr.John (a New Orleans musical legend), The Preservation Hall Jazz Band (A long time New Orleans treasure), plus Henry Butler & Marva Wright (Two more New Orleans musical legends). Total run time is approx. 100 minutes. THIS IS ONE GREAT CONCERT DVD!!!! THESE GUYS CAN REALLY HARMONIZE GOOD TOGETHER. Some of the "Blind Boys" play musical instuments, and also, you get plenty of back-up musicians. THIS IS A GREAT CONCERT!!!

The "Blind Boys" have won 4 grammy awards, plus a 2009 grammy lifetime achievement award.

The Blind Boys of Alabama are a "Southern Treasure" and a "National Treasure". Although, the name of the band includes "Blind Boys", these are real men, with a great gospel message. The Blind Boys from Alabama have been performing for years.

This dvd is was filmed at the famous "Tipitina's Music Club" in the "Crescent City" of New Orleans. You get a concert performance of 16 great songs. Some of the highlights include "Free at Last", "Down by the Riverside", "Amazing Grace", and "People get Ready".

You get some great bonus material also, including the music video of "Free at Last" filmed in New Orleans. Also, somewhere in the dvd, you get commentaries from members in the band. These guys have a wonderful attitude. One of them said, "I'm not blind, I just can't see". These guys are great period!!!! These guy's are "heaven-bound". This concert leaves you with a great feeling. If you want that "great-feeling", then buy this dvd, it'll make you feel good!!! If you like music, you'll love this one, and I highly recommend it!!!! Thanks!!!"

"WOW! The Blind Boys of Alabama prove that they're the undisputed kings of Gospel-Rock! This DVD is on fire and it's almost like being at Tipitina's down in New Orleans. I saw the band live and they were great but with all these special guests and the horn section added in, this DVD is really over the top! I recommend this for anyone who loves live music and especially Blind Boys fans. This is a 'must have'!"
Amazing !
