"Before I say anything, I'd like to respectfully correct Andru Reeve who, in his review, mentioned some of the TDN hits that Chuck Negron sang lead on. It should be noted that Cory Wells sang lead on "Mama Told Me Not To Come" and not Chuck. As for this DVD, "Live with the Tennessee Orchestra", I love it. I just saw TDN last night, 10-28-05, at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, California, and they rocked. Of course, they rocked the last 13 times I've seen them, and 2 of those shows were with an orchestra. This current line-up still sounds great. Sure, I wish Cory and Danny could bridge their differences with Chuck, and the reverse as well. However, as Chuck himself mentioned in his book, he was let go from the band in 1985 for missing more than the allowable number of shows, due to his addiction. I'm sure all sides aren't perfect, but with an addiction like Chuck had, I would guess that too many things were said and too many bridges were burned. Anyway, this DVD is a lot of fun to watch and I really enjoyed the interviews. Danny and Cory were very complimentary on the other members of the band and what they contribute to the overall chemistry. They also mentioned that the music was FUN again. This DVD was taped in 2000 but, last night, I could tell they were still having fun, even if Michael Allsup's guitar malfunctioned twice, which made for a good laugh. I wish there would be a comprehensive DVD compilation of original TDN performances from the 1970's, such as television specials, etc. Of course, if you don't like TDN, then don't buy this DVD, but at the same time, don't waste time bashing the band. That won't change the minds of people who love them. If you do like TDN, then nothing more needs to be said....

"Well, I've seen the few reviews here and am sticking my 02 cents here with no agenda(no fan club association) and like most of you am a ardent collector of music from this era, and do a fair share of collecting of live music. Now, while the production was like the editorial review here kinda of 'slick' in my words, my 10 year old daughter who's on the Brittiney kick liked it as well. Anyway, I'm no pro reviewer here, but candidly found that it was 'lacking'. No, the production was excellent in it's application, but, like any true die hard fan, missed seeing one of the leading voices of this band. Without Negron, it feels fair at best. I put on live at the forum for my daughter and she could definately hear the difference in those harmonies that were done then and now. Without Chuck (even with the blond guy there hitting the high notes(the guitarist in the blue glasses) it just isn't the same. Sorry to rain on any parades here, but to suggest this is Three Dog Night, is like saying the remaining Beach Boys are anyting close to what we grew up with. I guess that's why I'm still Listening to Neil Young stuff because it's the real deal. If they could put Negron in, I would be more then satisfied. I rate it a low 3 for Nostalgia primarily since I'm not a new fan(though that one song with St. Marie(don't have the title in front of me) is a very worthy new song to be heard. I like it alot and my daughter kept rating the music based on the bob factor-how much the knees were moving to the beat of the songs(sound familiar?). Anyway, her favorite was that new song, and Eli, and One."
I loved it & watch it constantly, let's get Chuck back!

"Being 34 and only knowing the music and not the group I decided to buy the DVD. I watched it and after the first song I knew something was different. I realized "hey" where is the other guy lol. Anyway I watched it so much but was somewhat confused to who sang what originally so I knew I needed to see some old concert footage, off to Ebay I went & purchased some old concerts (bootleg) wow was I blown away at them. I must have sat & watched both new & old concerts over 50 times each & for what it's worth it's true that Chuck is amazing in his own right but Corey Wells is really the backbone of that group when it comes to vocals. I personally loved this DVD but after seeing what they were together it would be awesome to see them all together again. I don't feel that Danny & Cory do justice to Chucks songs such as - One, Celebrate, Joy to the world. On the other hand Danny & Corey still have thier voices and can still entertain and have a good sense of humor on stage. I love the way Corey sings "Try a little tenderness" what a soulful guy. I love the DVD and recommend it but if you can you really have to get some of the old concerts and HINT!! To the music industry! Produce some!! :o) Thanks."
Three Dog Night & Tennessee Symphony Worth Gold

"Since receiving the DVD "Three Dog Night-Live with the Tennessee Symphony", I have veiwed it several times. The DVD is a classy display of classic rock and up-to-date orchestra music with insurmountable energy. Three Dog Night sings all their hits and sound as good, if not better, than they did in the 60's and 70's. The entire DVD is excellent. I grew up with their music and at a recent "Ladies Night Out" at my home, we danced and sang along with each song. I highly recommend it if you are into classic Three Dog Night music."
