Great concert! I still love her music!

"If you haven't heard any of Carole's music since Tapestry, hold on to your hat. Her style has evolved, but not unrecognizably so. And her wonderful voice and talent are the same. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio quality is quite good. The visual quality is high enough to watch at a widescreen setting with only a tiny loss of sharpness. Each song is a chapter, so you can easily go to a particular song. My only criticism is that the dvd is very dark in places. I would have preferred softer lighting on the stage with fewer spotlights and shadows.I loved seeing Carole at the piano for several songs during this concert. That's the Carole that I remember. But how fun it is to see Carole facing the audience, singing, dancing, and inviting them to join in on a chorus of one of the old favorites. This is a must-see for any Carole King fan."
She Still Rocks!

"This "Carole King-In Concert" DVD was filmed in 1994, as part of her "Colour of Your Dreams" album tour. While it is, she says of one portion, part memory lane trip, part music history, it is very much a rousing in-the-moment concert with none of the mustiness of an oldies or comeback gig to it (though this particular video has all the pedigree of a PBS fundraiser concert, filmed in an upscale concert hall, with a very well manicured, polite, not-very-diverse boomer audience). Working since the late fifties, King has written much of the music that helped define pop culture ever since, mostly by other performers. Here are "Natural Woman," "Chains," "One Fine Day," "Take Good Care of My Baby," as well as some she debuted on her own "Tapestry" album. (I thought it odd at first that "Tapestry" itself was not on this DVD, but I can see where it really doesn't fit so logically with the rest of the selections.) The music rocks. So does King, who looks wonderful and is a role model for aging gracefully (if almost invisibly!). Her voice is strong and rich. DVD options are not availed much in this product, though they are used to outline the highlights of an extraordinary, award-winning and often behind-the-scenes career."

"the eveready bunny has nothing on Carole King....and this concert not only contains hit after hit..but it is lit and photographed beautifully as well! The pace of the show is a real rollercoaster of time and emotion...I actually forgot how much I loved her music...glad to have a digital refresher course available...If you want to hear one of the half dozen greatest pop composers of the last forty years perform her songs as only she will not be dissapointed. PS her band cooks!"
Carole King At Her Best!!

"I've been a Carole King fan since the 60's. Finally I bought this DVD and my only complaint is that it is not longer.
Carole is in fine form, singing most of her hits which form just a small part of her compositions. Her performance generates an enthusiasm that is contagious. The orchestra is in top form.
I can't wait for another performance by Carole to come out!"
