Product Description

The Former UK Military Captain's Debut Album "Back to Bedlam" Rose to Prominence by Word of Mouth, Fuelled by Amusing and Touching Live Performances. "You're Beautiful", a Song About a Lifetime Lived in a Moment, Became the Soundtrack of a Turbulent Year, Despite Taking Several Weeks to Reach Number One. The Album was 2005's Biggest Seller in the UK. Everything that Makes Blunt Such a Special Talent Can Be Seen and Heard on These Extraordinary Live Performances, Filmed Before an Invited Audience at the BBC in November 2005 and the Audio Portion Recorded While on Tour in Ireland in December 2005. Whether Solo Or Backed by a Full Band, Blunt Loses Himself in his Songs. It is the Same Quality of Intensity Captured on the Video for 'you're Beautiful', Included Here Along with his Other Videos. Between Songs, Blunt Can Be Light-hearted and Debonair. When He Sings, He is Naked. Includes an Electronic Press Kit with a Short Documentary Featurette, Photo Gallery and Interview. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Have finally viewed the famous DVD, having found a workaround for my DVD player. The production values are good, and the BBC performance is very good. The additional material is probably better though. The Bonus CD is excellent, and includes two non-album tracks, "Sugar-Coated" and a cover of "Fall at Your Feet," and was recorded in a little church in Ireland. If you are able to change your DVD player to Region 0 then this is worthwhile purchase; otherwise, wait until the fall, when it will be released in a North American-compatible format.

What an incredible DVD. Lots of extras, videos which are just starting to get airplay on Much Music, a wicked concert. I know many of you are having problems viewing it. If you have a dvd player that you can switch the regions it works fine. Otherwise - you can download a player at [...] - and play the dvd on your computer it works flawlessly. Another thing, - this item is much cheaper at www.amazon.co.uk - about 7 pounds and shipping is reasonable - if you order just that your package should arrive duty free.

I was soooo disspointed that the dvd would not play on my dvd player here in Canada. It reads Region Code Error. This dvd was supposed to be Region Code 0, but unfortunatley it came as Region Code 2, 3 , 4. Amazon was quick to send me another copy thinking this was a mistake, but unfortunatley the same problem occured. I returned both and now hope that Amazon corrects this problem so everyone in North Amercia can watch the dvd. I've checked Amazon.com and the comments are the same. This is a disspointment.

I've bought Back to Bedlam and loved it - and am waiting for this package to be released in North American before buying it. Because this is an imported item the DVD won't work over here, hopefully they decide to release a version in North America, which they will probably do soon enough

Worth. Every. Penny. March 14 2006
By Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I fell in love with James Blunt back in November, and I've been starved for anything of his ever since...which is why it's no surprise that I bought this the day it was released.

It's worth every penny, and more.

With this DVD/CD pack, you get a full CD of his songs (live, which is equal - if not better - to his studio-recording), plus a few others (Sugar-Coated, Where Is My Mind) that you won't get on the regular CD.

You also get a live DVD version of him playing all his songs (in a studio with about 30 people), and the quality is stellar. The video is excellent, giving great footage of both him (up close) and his band, and the sound quality is equally great. He's a stellar performer, singing brilliantly, if not better, than his studio version. In particular, his piano versions of "Goodbye My Lover" and "No Bravery" are gripping and heartwrenching. Unlike most popular singers today, Blunt digs into the soul with each song, reaches for that part of himself that he tapped into when he originally wrote the song, and it makes for a stellar piece of work when he's singing it. The raw emotion and talent therein is astounding.

And if all of that wasn't enough, you get all of his music videos (excluding the most recent re-release of Wisemen), plus Making-Ofs of his music videos (the Making-Ofs for the original High and Wisemen video are hilarious, but the rest of them are less than stellar because they don't actually feature James speaking at all in them; rather you have the boring director blathering on about nothing for about 30 seconds). You also get two extremely long and hilarious interviews with James about his songs, his life, his career, and where he aspires to go. All awesome stuff.

It's worth every penny, people. It's worth double the price. If you even remotely like James Blunt, and like seeing an awesome live show and getting a great bargain, pick this one up. You won't regret it.

EDIT: I'd recommend for those that are getting faulty Amazon discs to get a refund/exchange immediately; but for those that don't want to bother, and have DVD players on their computers/laptops, just toss the DVD in your computer and when it prompts you to change your region code, switch it to Region 2 (or whichever), and you should be good to go.

Partial DVD workaround March 16 2006
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just got my CD/DVD, and like everyone else, was disappointed that the DVD would not play. Luckily I did not delete the BBC concert from my DVR (it was broadcast several weeks ago and I taped it.)

For those who want to watch the DVD, the freeware VLC media player will play it just fine on your PC. Download VLC from [...] It is a small file and easy install. I realize this is not as good as watching it on your TV, but it is better than nothing while we wait to see what Amazon and Atlantic are going to do for us.

great CD/DVD June 26 2006
By Eric M. Gruber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Listening to James Blunt for the first time, I wasn't sure what to think of this artist. I've listened to many types of musicians during my time and I'll have to be honest it took me only two times to enjoy his music. When The Bedlam Sessions came out, it took no time for me to purchase this item. Watching the DVD of his performance shows how much passion and desire he has for his music. Not only this, but the CD/DVD also contains songs that are not on the Bedlam CD plus the shows are done a bit differently then the actually Bedlam album. It has more acoustic versions/piano versions as well as a beautiful remdition of "No Bravery" only with the piano and violen. The complete package is great. You get a live recording of a show from Ireland and then a DVD from a show at the BBC. On top of that, several videos of his songs, which have yet to be shown here in the states, plus an interview and documentary. The DVD can only play on Region Free or Region 2 DVD players but can also be played on your computer as well. If you enjoy the music of James Blunt, you'll be sure to enjoy this great package.

James Blunt is truly amazing! May 12 2006
By K. Maycock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had ordered this knowing that I probably wouldn't be able to watch it on my tv (having already read the comments) but I wanted the Live Cd anyway. I absolutely love the cd and I love listening to the couple of songs I haven't heard. I tried to play the dvd at a few different places to know avail, without even trying my own dvd player. I got it at Walmart for $17.oo the day after Thanksgiving and I'm cursing it every time I go to watch a movie because what would normally take 1.5 to watch a movie takes 2 or more due to the frame just freezing. But, this isn't the case 100% of the time, it will play a brand new one just fine. And imagine my amazement when I was able to watch James Blunt on my Tv with my cheap dvd player!!! I was literally ecstatic! He is so passionate and he has definetly touched my soul like no other musician/artist ever has. I know James has so many fans and the number grows every day I'm sure, everyone of them should own this dvd. It's fantastic!
