Movie Reviews

Some Great Memories
Glen Ramirez | Massachusetts | 07/06/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was 60 minutes of pure fun. It was great to see artists who have rarely been seen on DVD (or virtually anywhere since their heyday). This is a good mix of 70's/60's Pop, R&B, and Adult Contemporary. The pros far outweigh the cons of this production. Seeing an artist such as B.J.Thomas who had great success with multiple hits during that era sounded wonderful and is usually only seen on the small club circuit scene. Same could be said for Lou Rawls & Dionne Warwick (although they are on many other PBS/Concert reunion DVD's). The reunion of Tony Orlando & Dawn was a fun treat and Debbie Boone making an appearance to sing her huge 70's classic was a visual and listening pleasure.

Groups that only partially have original members such as The 5th Dimension, The Association and Peaches & Herb sound good with replacement singers.

I would rate this May 2003 recording the following way:

Audio quality: 4.5 Stars
Video quality: 5 Stars
Acts/Performances: 4 Stars

Has a strong line-up, some fun humor and good selection of material for each artist. Hope to see a Vol. 2."
Every Song A Hit
C. W. Emblom | Ishpeming, Michigan USA | 10/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every song on this DVD belongs here. There are no duds. I especially like it because there is not another DVD or video that includes the songs listed here sung by The Fifth Dimension and Tony Orlando and Dawn. There is a separate DVD of The Fifth Dimension but it is not worth buying if you want the hit songs. I have purchased multiple copies of this DVD to use as prizes for my music students. You will not go wrong in purchasing this DVD. I have watched this DVD several times. It is worth twice the price."
Reunions and Tony Orlando and Dawn
Dr. Joe Kort | Royal Oak, Michigan United States | 04/07/2005

"I love reunions. If only Diana Ross and the *original* 60's Supremes could do this!

I am a HUGE Tony Orlando and Dawn Fan! I have been since a teenager. I love when the act reunites. It is great to see them performing. I hope they will consider doing another reunion tour! I also hope their TV series will become available on DVD soon!"
Everybody got fat , also my memories!
