Movie Reviews

Technically Disappointed with Live In Rockford
Edward A. Dimmer | Albany, New York United States | 02/07/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This Rick Springfield project would have been better off released as
a music CD rather then a film Dvd. I found the performance / stage
presence of Rick and The Band to be exceptional; but, was very
dis-appointed with the way it was captured / edited for dvd release.

I understand that the camera crew / film editers were trying to give the
project an MTV fast paced fever-pitch quality by constantly changing
camera views; but, they just didn't seem to have a sense of timing in
allowing the cameras to linquer on Springfield for longer periods of
time to capture the visual intensity and emotion that he put into each
song. Camera angles kept changing every other minute giving the
performance a very ragged unprofessional look. I kept wondering if
this was the first time this camera crew had ever gotten together....had
ever shot anything before this concert.

To be fair.... by the end of the concert ( the encore) - it seemed that the
camera crew got tired - allowed the cameras to stay focus'd entirely on
Springfield. I was totally mesmerized - caught up in those songs - !

The back stage interviews with Springfield were done well ! Fun to watch .
Brought back a lot of memories about the way the music scene use to be
in the seventies and eighties. It was a back stage pass to hang out with
a very likable man who just happens to also be a pop star Icon.

- would I advice someone to buy this Cd ? sure . absolutely ! -

-soooo many great songs on this dvd-

you take what you can get if you're a devoted Springfield fan !
Rick Springfield sure has staying power!

"The dvd captures the spirit, enthusiasm and energy of a live Rick concert. I was thrilled to buy it and watch it over and over! He is clearly still live & kickin', moves around kicking, swirling, spinning, guitar strumming even more than the 80s. Your favs and a few new wonders are in the tracks and the man's gorgeous green eyes show up quite well on screen. It's fun seeing his audience interaction and I highly recommend the cd to fans and non fans alike. Just a fun energetic viewing experience. He got my State of the Heart....
22 Tracks , Awesome !!!

"Hope there release a HD-DVD eventually since HDNET recorded it . 22 tracks for 9.99 ? I thought the quality was going to be bad for that price . It's not ! It is amazing . The energy ,the picture and sound a and of course Rick , This is a must have for any rock fan not just the casual music fan . You can't go wrong for the price . It is top class and so is Rick , The concert and 22 songs . Just rocks !!!!"

"It was good to finally see a modern, full length Rick concert released. My only gripe is that the sound could have been a bit fuller. Anyone familiar with his "Greatest Hits Alive" CD might have become accustomed to a heavier sound for his live performances. Besides that, it was a great concert and recording. I was especially impressed with the songs performed from SDAA and TDAY, which were performed with that little bit more confidence than some of the older material. That said, the acoustic guitar version of "My father's chair" (included as an extra track?) was brilliant. Fans new and old won't be disappointed with this purchase. It would be good to see vintage tracks like "Speak to the sky" and "Comic book heroes" performed in concert though, just for old times sake."
