"I looked forward to watching these concerts, after watching many of the 60's groups on great PBS concerts. BIG disappointment. Gary Puckett and Gary Lewis didn't sound anything like they did years ago =no resemblence at all. It could have been strangers trying to sing their songs. The Association was so-so. Their voices were weak and the harmony sometimes clashed. This concert series is totally depressing, and the DVD set is trash as far as I'm concerned. I can see now why these former hit singers were not on any of the PBS 60's reunion concerts!"
Not what they should be.

"Sadly, the performances caught here aren't always what they should be. This is a much later version of The Association and the sound isn't quite right and some of the songs are shaky. The other shows aren't consistantly strong and there's this annoyingly fake "applause swell" that becomes painfully apparent when they show the audience sitting still during the fake applause. A more intimate setting would have helped, but this could have been done much better. Recommended only for those who are ardent fans of these artists and want everything in their archive."
