Not a single bad track

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Katrina hit New Orleans folks do not believe in saving the best to the last. Sultry Irma Thomas quickly introduces the agenda. No time was wasted bringing on sexy and seductive (I mean the voice) bare-foot Joss Stone.

The money track for me was "Amazing Grace" by Aaron Neville, which was a fabulous emotive version. I would have preferred Aaron Neville sing HIS version a cappella, showcasing his inimitable vocals. More heart-rending than the recent Oprah endorsed Il Divo version of "Amazing Grace".

The back to back grand pianos played by Allen Toussaint and John Cleary on each end is reminiscent of the piano contest in the Movie "Legend of 1900". Awesome sight in 1080p Blu-ray.

Track after track of the blues by legendary performers. Each a treat. No slackers tolerated in the company of R&B doyens. Bonnie Raitt shows off some guitar work, which would have been more remarkable if she were not compared with the many great guitarists performing that evening. The surprise guest was KEITH RICHARDS singing a Fats Domino classic; his trade-mark guitar work took on a blusey hue. Unusual for Keith Richards.

There are four good bonus tracks, ending with a manic performance by the Mardi Gras Indians. Bonus meant bonus, not sub-standard extra footage.

The absence of DTS does not detract from the sound. Instead of 5.1, I used the 2.0 soundtrack which sounds LPCM to me, and has tight and well-defined bass; essential for a concert well represented by drums and double bass sounds.

All performers pulled their weight. Excellent, excellent, excellent variety concert BD."
