"Koch Vision and Soundstage presents "AMERICA LIVE IN CHICAGO" (2008) (77 mins/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- The early-'70s light folk sound that became popular in America was defined by the very band that shared a name with the country that embraced them. America ruled the Top 10 charts of that era with their evocative harmonies and acoustic-styled ... Full Descriptionmusicianship.

America & sooo many of their Hidden Gems Shined Brilliantly

"Hi ~ I too have been waiting Moonsages for this release to come to be. What a magical event this was, it was a whirlwind dream come true time for me getting to be there at the Soundstage Studio. Picture this, a big stage with a backdrop of screens all showing America's history of album covers. The sound, lighting and acoustics were all top notch. Add America coming on stage and there was a Right Back at You Magic all around for this taping. America performed their hearts out, and adding to this treat was Henry Diltz, long time friend of America joining them on Don't Cross the River and HWNN, playing his banjo. Christopher Cross also joined America to sing and play on Lonely People & HWNN.I too am hoping that this dvd will be of the full playlist of songs done that night. We were treated to the known America gems, and we also were treated to such hidden gems, as Survival, Till The Sun Comes Up, Head and Heart, Everyone I Meet is From California, and a pinch me this is for real moment when Gerry sang All My Life. If you have never been to an America show, this dvd is a must have for you, I guarantee after watching it you will want to find the next scheduled America live show in your area. Thank You to all that are involved in bringing about the release of this dvd. I am also looking forward to the interviews from this evening. Take care and Ride On America! Nancyh :)"
Hopin' for the whole enchilada

"Been waiting for this show to come out now a couple of years. Hope I'm not bummed with just a partial show like the one aired on PBS. I was there that night and these guys were fabulous all night, not just on the "hits". Now let's work on getting these guys in the Rock Hall Of Fame like they so rightly deserve!!!!!!DanC"
Probably the best of all the AMERICA dvds.....probably

"Well...fans of AMERICA ...can certainly pick and choose among about a half dozen DVDs now on the market. As a fan with a reasonable budget and the price of them all reasonable I have them all...and this new one from Sound Stage is certainly a gem...maybe THE gem. Sound Stage have first rate production values...from sound to video and those have both been hit or miss on past AMERICA dvds. The show in Australia seems a bit longer (24 songs)and unlike this set list does include EVERYONE I MEET IS FROM CALIFORNIA which I gather from another reviewer at the show was performed but isn't on this DVD... and with more goodies at 156 total minutes.. but this one also features a long interview with Gerry and a shorter one with Dewey as fun bonuses.
The set list is uniformly strong with a few surprises and I actually prefer it to the longer set from Australia which features several songs I'm not familiar with nor a fan of...so in this case less is more for me anyway.
bottom line..great first DVD if you don't have any...and great additional one if you do! The bonus DVD Target had from the XM sessions if you bought their most recent CD at that chain is also stunning...worth searching out!
