Some fantastic music (billy joel, stevie ray, allman bros, kenny loggins etc) but too much useless fill. all in all worthwhile, but would be fantastic if shorter.

"It's hard to quibble with this DVD at this low price but I will anyway. Overall it was disappointing. About half of the performances were lackluster at best and the sound quality on some (remember this is a showpiece for the medium) were underwhelming. I was particularly surprised at the distracting camera work on Billy Joel's number. I love everything Billy Joel but seeing him 'attacked' by multiple cameras was too much. The performances and audio from Stevie Ray Vaughn, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Tony Bennett were the better numbers. The overall best was Yo-Yo Ma's "1B". I have none of his music in my large CD collection but this piece was a visual and sonic standout.
If Sony wants to impress with DVD technology, I think they could do a lot better than this. Quibble, quibble."
Good and reasonable choice!

"There are two reasons that I bought this DVD. First, it is cheaper than Korea where I live. They are selling the same title at the price corresponding to 19$ in Korea! The next and more important reason is that it might offer me different experiences from various musicians in a single DVD. In fact, I hadn't even heard of a few musicians appeared in this DVD. I chose this just because I wanted to enjoy some familiar songs played by musicians of my taste. But after I have seen it again and again, I came to like almost all of songs. I prefer appreciating music performances in DVD to listening to music only on CD. I believe good sound and nice view of this DVD would give you the same feeling I've had. If you can't afford to attend such performances, buy this one instead. It deserves to be the first collection of your music concert DVDs."
A good buy

"This DVD has good sound, great video, and a very nice price. All the performances are good, with a reasonably wide range of musical styles included on the DVD. All-in-all, this is a nice little DVD music sampler."
Hey, it's a sampler, okay?

"There a wide, make that VERY wide variety of musical styles represented here. It's a great way to sample over a dozen music DVDs to see if they fit what you like to watch. I was surprised how much I liked the touching "Annie's Song," and how subdued Tony Bennett seemed on "Moonglow." Anyway, it's a fun starter DVD, and the price is right."
