"I thought this first official live DVD was worthy of his 40+ years in the music industry. He is a true legend and this is his version of MTV Unplugged. The sound quality was amazing in 5.1 digital surround sound. Picture quality was also very nice, I like the lighting and the intimate setting of this small stage. We all know he could have had an arena full of people. The new arrangements on these old songs that are loved by so many and the different key he sang them in was only complimented by the Jalisco Philaharmonic. He sang his songs with such emotion it made the hairs on my arms stand. He is truely one of the most gifted and loved singers from the Aztec country of MEXICO. A must have for all music lovers. My only complain was that he did not sing Volver Volver."
Excellent Because It's Really the ONLY & FIRST of its kind..

"I have been looking for a DVD-like quality, stereo-sounding, mariachi concert video for the last 7 years and the closest to this was Juan Gabriel's concert DVDs (which are good) but are not completely mariachi. As popular as Vicente and Antonio & Pepe, and other established mariachi bands are, I am surprised and very dissappointed that only until now, did someone release a mariachi concert DVD of Vicente...nonetheless, the DVD is excellent quality and very nicely done.
My only dissappointment with this music selection was that there was only 1 (maybe 2 if you include Guadalajara) 'fast' or upbeat songs (La Ley Del Monte) which clearly received one of the evening's loudest applauses/ovations from the crowd. Sure all of the other songs were enjoyable, but too many slow/romantic selections...it should have had more 'upbeat' selections. Despite my comments I still enjoyed the concert and recommend it to any fan of this music but it defintely leaves me wanting and wishing for more upbeat songs every time I watch/listen to it."

"Realmente que despues de 40 anos de carrera artistica valio la pena la espera, esta coleccion de canciones especialmente en este concierto suenan muy bien, lo unico que no es de muy buena calidad es la imagen especialmente si se ve en una HDTV de 50" o mas grande, pero a pesar de esto es un buen concierto que yo recomendaria a cualquiera que le gusta la musica de " chente ""
3 & 1/2 stars, A bit proper for a Chente concert but, musica

"Viewers of this DVD filmed at his own "fully dressed up" concert venue in Guadalajara will get a slightly different impression of his legendary live shows. They are generally more raucous, booze soaked, chain smoking between every song sing along events. They are unique and uniquely Mexico.
But, since this was a very exclusive event for the elite of Guadalajara and they were filming him live for (unbeleievably) the first time they kept it nice. Chente es Chente, y como Mexico no hay dos... There are a few pirate DVD's out there, sold in Wal-Mart of all places, but they are of poor sound and amatuerish editing. This one is the only one to buy that is out.
Listen and watch this living legend. You will never again drink Tequila without him. This concert contains a ton of material, over 2-2.5 hours of it. In concert he can sometimes go 3 hours plus. HE HAS A TON OF MATERIAL."
