"Nothing can stop Dionne. It's cold, it's raining and there she is singing to a crowded audience of loyal fans under their umbrellas. She looks great in very simple blue outfit, very casual. She's in great voice and great spirit as she takes us down memory lane with some of her many hits, some with new arrangements. The duets with his son David Elliot are great, he's a great singer. I'm pretty sure this is the same DVD as "Dione Warwick Live" ASIN: B00023TG7I which is more expensive, she has the same outfit. Maybe the song set on that one is longer. Here's the song set for this one:
Close To You
Don't Make Me Over
Walk On By
Anyone Who Had A Heart
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
This Girl's In Love With You
I Say A Little Prayer (Duet with her son, David Elliot)
Do You Know The Way To San Jose
I'll Never Love This Way Again
What The World Needs Now
That's What Friends Are For (with David Elliot)
I highly recommend this DVD, it's great quality, Dionne sounds great and has a great 8 piece band behind her. I wasn't even a fan and I really enjoyed this concert and for the price it's a bargain.
An Unusual Concert

"Heres Dionne relaxed in front of a soggy crowd at the Syracuse Jazz Festival. The concert features all of her hits and she sounds great. The only complaint is that between some of the songs it seems to end sharply without no audience applause sort of like the last seconds of the song were cut out and it goes right into the next song. It only happens twice, not a big deal but unusual for a live concert DVD."
Dionne is one of the greatest!

"The dvd is great! Dionne sings her hits in the pouring rain and you can feel the dampness from your couch. Dionne is on a short list of singers- that do not have to dance, prance or cut up- to distract you from their questionable vocal abilities. Only Patti can do all of that and more- and give you a vocal beat down before she leaves the stage. But getting back to Dionne; This very humble artist has talent up the Ying yang. And her clothes (stage attire for this concert) do not define nor are they distracting from this rainy concert. ****This is for the fashion police and their track suit issue. Her son-is an excellent songwriter/singer with a more than average voice and looks good sharing the stage with his moms. Great work from everyone on this project! My only issue with this concert is that she has no background singers to give the songs- that extra punch and imagery that we hear and see in our minds- that we get from her studio work and her other live concerts. "Don't stop! Don't Stop! Walk on Bye!" Nuff said! I am out- Great work Dionne!"
