Amazing Peformance, But Problems With The Mix

"Patti delivers an amazing performance, as always. But I agree with the other reviewers that the picture and sound quality is aweful on this DVD. Very dark and grainy picture. Very weak sound, (I had to double the volume on my TV just to hear it). So there are real problems with the mix. Also, the audience at the Appolo seemed a little quite. I would have liked to see them clap more often or give Patti more support. But maybe they were being quite because they did not want to interupt her performance. I would recommend the Live, One Night Only DVD over this one."
She never sang like she sang here

"Patti has never been able to capture in a live performance what she did here. Her vocal range is constant, almost seems to grow in this concert. Her backup singers rock like no one can imagine. With Debbie Henry's show-stopping, "Feed Me, Lord", there is no touching the backup singers. Moreover, there's no stopping Diva Labelle. Singing classics like Ain't No Way, Send in the Clowns, and garnishing a standing ovation on Whitney Houston's "All the Man I Need", you will be breathless after seeing this concert. I promise you it is one of her best performances ever! Ever! EVER! She's live! She's awesome! She's... Patti LaBelle!"
Diva LaBelle on stage

"If you've never been to a Patti LaBelle concert this is as close as you'll come to getting the full experience. Patti throws down in this concert like you wouldn't believe. Singing songs from her standards "On My Own," "If You Asked Me To," and "Lady Marmalade" to cover songs of Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way" and Whitney Houston's "All the Man That I Need." Don't forget the magical moment when Patti's former group, Labelle, takes to the stage for the first time in over 15 years. And you will not believe what this grand diva does with Somewhere Over the Rainbow. If you can watch this tape and not hail Ms. Patti as one of the greatest stage performers ever, honey, you must be dead!"
A Patti Klassic

"If you are a Patti fan like me, then you know that this gurl can sang!!! I've been a Patti fan since I was born (no lie) 16 years. And the 1st I saw this dvd I was completely blown away... Although the sound sucked, Patti def. made up for it with her vocals. Also, I was lookin forward to seeing Patti in her usual attire (the CrAzY hair, hott clothes,etc.), but she only changed clothes 2ce, and she kept the same hair thruout the show (BIG DISAPPOINTMENT). However, she is one of the best performers of all time... Ive seen her once, and I was glued to my seat... my fav. vocal performances include:From a Distance
Need a Little Faith (AMAZING VOCALS)
Patti Lov Medley
Never Love this way again
All The man that I need (Chills up my spine)
Release yourself (Just let it gooooo)
You Are My Friend (the song she rolls around on the floor on)
When You've Been Blessed
If You Don't Know me By Now (She kicks her shoes off on this one)
Somewhere Over the Rainbow (She Flies, She Flies)Patti's the best... shes has soo much charisma on stage, and she's soo funny. My only complaint is that she talks WAAYY TOOO MUCCHH... its amazing that she sings as well as she does, bc if i talked that much, I would be dying by the time I had to sing "Over the Rainbow." But I give it 5 stars overall, vocally, one of her best!!! Patti is one of, if not the greatest singers of all time!!! BUY THID DVD, ITS A PATTI MUST!!!"
