The '70s and '80s rule as two of the most popular bands from that era join forces on Chicago/Earth Wind & Fire - Live at the Greek Theatre, a two-disc, nearly three-hour concert recorded in Los Angeles in 2004. These groups scored dozens of hits in their heydays, and if neither has come up with much of anything that's new in the past two decades, the sold-out audience at the Greek Theatre could hardly care less. Both Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire, have soldiered on despite key personnel changes over the years (Chicago bassist-singer Peter Cetera and EWF founder Maurice White are long gone, and much missed); here they perform energetic and tasteful versions of everything from "Make Me Smile," "I'm a Man," and "Saturday in the Park" (Chicago) to "That's the Way of the World," "Fantasy," and "Serpentine Fire" (EWF), among many others, to rapturous response. Nothing too exciting about all of that--in fact, it's a bit like witnessing a couple of very skilled tribute bands at work--but there are a few surprises, as when Chicago keyboardist-singer Bill Champlin takes the lead on "After the Love Has Gone" (which he co-wrote) and EWF singer Philip Bailey returns the favor on Chicago's "If You Leave Me Now." The highlights are the first and last portions of the show, when the two bands (complete with horn sections) share the stage for "September," "25 or 6 to 4," "Shining Star," and more, displaying genuine joy at performing together and generating a huge, infectious sound delivered with high definition visuals and digital audio. --Sam Graham --This text refers to the DVD edition.

This is one concert that all music fans should own!!!Whether you are a fan of Earth wind and fire and Chicago or not....this is what music is about..it is about having a great time,feeling the music deep down in your heart....and that is what these 2 groups accomplished.Sound Quality is outstanding,picture quality is superb and the performance from both groups...absolutely impeccable!Buy this dvd.....guaranteed to enjoy it.....also,the fact that these two bands are on the stage at the same time to play each others songs,and do it flawlessly,blows my mind....not one false note,all the horn players were absolutely on,the drum duel was amazing,and the vocals were nothing short of perfect.Definitely my favorite dvd from my collection of concert dvds........and i have a ton of them!!!!!!!!!!!ENJOY...

The video and sound quality are excellent. I was very happy to hear the usage of different instruments in the back speakers and not mixing in concert hall echo. However the concert itself is disappointing. Chicago plays their instruments very well and are very musical; but they completely lack any front man vocals. Several of the band members give it a try but none capture the essence of the old Chicago (with Peter Cetera). In fact often they sound out right bad. Philip Bailey (of Earth Wind & Fire) saves a couple of Chicago songs by singing them or accompany Chicago. EW&F themselves are quite good and very entertaining; but their outfits and music is seriously dated in the '70s. Thought their base player will make you smile (and feel good). I purchased this blu-ray for Chicago but it is EW&F that saves it from the garbage can.

Over time I have appreciated music and the various groups that have brought enriching sounds into my life that have made a lasting positive impression; Earth, Wind & Fire is that group! This DVD has both a great sound and a great picture(Blu-ray). If you have not seen a classic group from the past and you do want to be transported into the present I strongly suggest this DVD, you will not be disappointed.

Q: Take a rock 'n' roll band with horns, mix it with a mystical funk group and what do you get?
A: A sparkling new concert DVD combining the music of two classic horn bands-Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire "Live at the Greek Theatre." (Shelf date: June 28, 2005)
In the show taped in high-definition at the conclusion of their 2004 summer tour, the two-band powerhouse has the Greek Theatre crowd on its feet for most of the three-plus-hour concert. The show was originally recorded for a pay-per-view concert that aired on cable systems in early 2005.
The two-disc DVD set opens with the groups hitting the stage en masse-complete with six horn players, two drummers, three percussionists, two bass players, three guitarists, et al., launching into Chicago's "Beginnings."
"When we open and both bands are on stage, people are like agog," Chicago founding member and trumpet player Lee Loughnane said during the 2004 tour. "They're like 'oh my God, you guys really are playing together.'"
Putting two bands on stage at once is often a train wreck in the making. A muddy sound mix can plague the effort or whole sections of one band or the other get left out.
Instead listeners are treated to a sparkling mix and interplay among the horn players that only adds to the classic tunes. Clearly the sum is greater than the already exceptional parts.
Next is EWF's majestic "In the Stone," cross-pollinated with Chicago's "Dialogue." Like a club DJ, the bands somehow mix the two songs together with stunning results, using an a cappella bridge.

Bonjour, les 2 groupes de ce show vont très bien ensemble il y'a une chimie entre eux... et ça parait sur scène, les musiciens sont très bon et ça ma rappeler de bon souvenir de jeunesse. Ils sont en forme et c'est un très bon show... il faut avoir aimé ces 2 groupes cependant... à voir.

I defy anyone to start watching/listening to this concert when they're feeling 'down' and still be feeling 'down' by the end of it.

Great upbeat music, uplifting lyrics, fantastic arrangements - especially the big ensemble pieces at the end.

Feel good music at it's best, by a bunch of musicians who've been at it a long time and know how to get it done.

Best of all, they simply look like they're having a great time. Have it with them.

I do, several times a year.

If you want a concert or movie BluRay for your collection this should be top on your list. The Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire BuRay is a MUST for any fan. Every hit song is on this BluRay including other video features.
The sound, camera shots, and performance is the best you'll ever get from these amazing artists, but by watching it on BluRay the experience is even better!

The concert starts out with both performing then Earth, Wind & Fire perform alone for over an hour. Chicago comes out later and in the end they perform together. This SUPERGROUP is a must see performing together!!!

Earth, Wind & Fire really stills the show, but Chicago without a lead singer like Peter Cetera also did a great job. Philip Bailey is really one of the best singers out there and he helps Chicago on some of their original songs.

Buy now, it will be the best BluRay investment of your life!

King
