"Note : I have the R1 version with 5.1 channel surround sound.I am so happy that I decided to get a copy of this concert dvd inspite of the average reviews because unlike the 2.0 channel version, this 5.1 channel version is truly an enjoyable experience that one cannot easily forget due to the song selections, the sound quality and picture quality of the dvd.If you are a Christopher Cross fan then you MUST definitely get this dvd in the 5.1 channel release version and you will never regret it.To quote what dvdreview.com says ..."Almost presented like a "Best Of" playlist, this DVD offers something for every fan of Cross' music, and those who want to familiarize themselves with it a little more. The 5.1 surround mix is a great addition to this DVD that blows the stereo mix that is also found on this DVD out of the water. Get this disc, and enjoy an evening with Christopher Cross. It is definitely worth it."Tracklist : Rendezvous, Never Be the Same, Back of My Mind, Sailing, Every Turn of the World, Deputy Dan, Blink of an Eye, Swept Away, Think of Laura, Minstrel Gigolo, Words of Wisdom, Open Up my Window, Say You'll Be Mine, Alibi, Is There Something, Arthur's Theme, Ride Like the Wind and All Right"

"I'm a fan of CC, but this DVD does not meet my expectations at all. It has a mediocre sound and the performance, well, he could do better."

"What an amazing concert this is! I am really surprised by some of the reviews that have been written. It's an excellent production and the sound quality is fine. This concert is a gem, Christopher Cross at his best. Christopher and the other musicians did a fabulous job performing these songs to the high quality standards of the original recordings. They did an incredible job. Christopher's guitar work will leave you spellbound. He's is truly one of the all time great guitarists... you'd never realize that because he's branded as adult contemporary but he really know how to rock on electric guitar yet also is a talented acoustic performer. His performance on "Words of Wisdom" took my breath away. The real treat is to hear the music that did not get radio play. It's amazing that after his early hits he continued to make outstanding records of the same caliber. I bought this video to hear the old hits but was pleasantly suprised to hear how good the other songs are. It was exciting to rediscover his music and get introduced to entire albums of other gems I had never heard before."
