"This certainly is an accurate capturing of Amy Winehouse in concert. She's a bit tipsy, her between songs banter with the crowd is all at once funny, charming and rambling. She seems to lose her train of thought a time or two, but when she sings, there is no denying the magic and power of her voice. Her wonderful backing band does a stellar job throughout and the home turf of London makes for a very appreciative and supportive crowd.
I thouroughly enjoyed the hour long documentary "I Told You I Was Trouble." Some great behind the scenes footage of her younger days, never before seen performances--even a very early showcase inside her record company's offices. If you are a fan of Miss Amy, you will greatly enjoy this DVD. Well worth the price!"
Worth every penny of the $7.99!

"Not quite sure why no one's reviewed this item yet of everyone's favorite tabloid car-crash...It appears this DVD was taped in May of 2007 (had trouble verifying the date)...And it's interesting simply to watch Winehouse when she AND HER VOICE are actually in really good form. She and her stellar band of course play all the songs off Back To Black, a couple 1st LP tracks, a couple B-side covers, along with a snippet of Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop (That Thing)...She's charming, random, self-deprecating and actually quite funny between songs--at times. She's mostly loose and lucid as opposed to being drunk or too drugged up to perform...Sound quality and performance top notch...The documentary bonus (50 minutes) is nice but not too enlightening...Still worth a watch...Wish they'd had more in-the-studio footage, and that her performance was a little more varied...Only other criticism is of the few unnecessary times the camera would pan to her husband in the audience. Oh well...Overall very, very good!"
Hands down--My favorite new artist of the last 20 years...

"Not since Madonna appeared on the music radar has an artist captivated my eye, ear, and heart the way Ms. Winehouse has. I realize they are worlds apart musically, but the presence and panache that they both exhibit are what makes me draw the parallel. Amy has the f-you attitude that Madonna had when she was starting out. She seems more concerned with doing her thing than warming up to those who would criticize her. Her delivery comes across as spontaneous, her in-between ramblings as extemporaneous--without any thought or concern for what people will think. Madonna was never this natural or uncalculated, but just as brash. And then there is that voice...like Etta James, Billie Holliday, Bettye LaVette, and all The Supremes rolled into one beautiful confection--chased with a shot of Tequila. Just listen to "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", and "You Know I'm No Good" and you will see an artiste/icon in the making. I hope and pray that her time in treatment will bring her back to the road she should be ruling. It would be a great tragedy for her to fall prey to the same habits that have robbed us of so many of our greatest talents. Don't let the reviews that talk about her supposed drunkenness dissuade you from buying this dvd--she may be tipsy, but she stays on top of her game, and lets the songs speak very clearly for themselves. The documentary is fascinating--with her demo performance included alongside observations from her fans, a record label exec (very articulate in respecting her awe inspiring talent) and her father (charming in his own way). One suggestion: Turn the subtitles on during the documentary to catch all that Amy (who speaks very fast in a heavy British accent--one of the reasons people always think she's drunk) has to say. She is funny, charming, smart, self-effacing, and--that rarest of qualities in someone in posession of such brilliance and success--REAL! I, for one, can't imagine the world without her!
BTW--Anyone knowing what the "Back to Black And White Extra Option" is on the dvd--please share it here. Did I miss something? God, I hope so!!!"
A Great Talent

"This live performance is proof of what an original and gifted artist Amy Winehouse truly is. It's amazing to think what an impact she's made at such a young age. The documentary is a wonderful bonus. The scene of her singing "(There Is) No Greater Love" for the record company in 2002 is unforgettable. This is a must have for any Amy Winehouse fan. You'll love her even more after seeing it."
