Movie Reviews

RLJ's performance is Excellent (as usual)

"the picture quality shows its age (from 1992) but the sound quality and performance more than make up for it."
Outstanding Performance - A MUST-HAVE!

"I remember hearing of Rickie Lee Jones before during my life, but didn't realize the magnitude of her talent until I saw this particular live performance being played on cable!We had to have it and searched on Amazon and was amazed that they have this available on DVD. ...The sound is awesome and very clear. Very high-quality. When friends come over, we play this DVD for them (just a sample) and always wind-up watching the whole performance.It's THAT good!!!Another thing that amazes me is that there are only a few reviews on this DVD. I guess this is one of the hidden treasures that you must discover for yourselves.I whole-heartedly recommend that you purchase it.You will not be disappointed and can thank us few reviewers later."
Where was I in 1992?

"I missed one of the most fantastic concerts ever, but at least I have the DVD to playback many times through many years of inmate enjoyment. No, not inmate as in reaching out, but inmate has in feeling the music completely. Rickie Lee delivers songs with no strings attach. No, you wont see her float through the air or wear outrageous cloths like Sarah Brightman does in "La Luna", or get pass around the audience like Peter Gabriel. The DVD starts in her dressing room, Rickie is sitting by a mirror putting on the last of her make-up, slips on a shirt, & walks out into a simple well lighted stage with a table for a foreground & a window frame for a background. The back up band are all professional, dressed simple, but play the music with such perfection, at times sounding like they are losing it, but no, its a multi layered time change. WOW!!! Most songs are written by Rickie, others are jazz standards, & one song was written by her father. The ultimate section is when she takes off her shirt & plays the piano with the tunes: "Coolsville" & "We Belong Together". The song "Coolsville" ends with the words "Common, I will take you back...I take you back..." & Rickie holds her hand out to the audience, waving them in, & then making a fist. Slowly she stops the song & sits in darkness with the saddest face...then she giggles & the audience goes crazy...what a moment. This is a great DVD"
Buy this DVD--You can thank me later

"I cannot lie: I am a huge RLJ fan. I have all of her albums, and I have seen her live on "The Late Show" and "Saturday Night Live." I, however, wasn't prepared for what is on this DVD. Ricki Lee Jones is amazing live. She seems a little out of it--she changes words, talks to herself a bit here and there, and her eyes are a little glazed over (you know how she is), but I must admit it all seems to come together in a performance you will not forget. The first time you hear the way she changes the songs, you're a little wierded out, but, the next thing you know, you are singing the songs with the changes in them, wishing she had made more. I called two friends while I was watching it for the first time to tell them that they had to go order it. You should order it too. Really."
