4.0 out of 5 stars EARTH WIND AND FIRE GET THE FUNK OUT! July 16 2008
By Paul S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In the early part of the 1970's a new form of music was emerging, one that combined Soul, Funk, Latin and Salsa music to form a bass heavy, groove-oriented sound for people to dance their butts off to. Of course, it was Disco. In those formative years a number of bands that were swept up with the same Disco broom were actually funk bands; The Gap Band, The Brothers Johnson, Parliament, The Average White Band, and Earth, Wind & Fire, to name a few. EW&F have been bringing the funk to the world for over 38 years and this live concert DVD shows us why they are considered pioneers in the world of Funk and R&B. The hour long concert was recorded on New Year's Eve in 1981 and presents a band that was at the pinnacle of their creative drive and there are some absolutely brilliant moments captured; as the sultry, funkified intro of "Fantasy" starts, it's magical to see Philip Bailey lead the massive band and fantastic horn section through what is one of the best songs to come from Earth, Wind & Fire. Another magical moment is the performance of "That's The Way Of The World" as Philip and bandleader Maurice White do the song that Maurice describes as their "national anthem".
After playing 9 songs, "Jupiter(The Battle)" seems to close off the concert with it's Sci-Fi inspired stage show, complete with a masked villain, lasers, flash pots and smoke bombs. That appears to be it. However, after a thunderous standing ovation, the band hits the highest note of the night with "Let's Groove", a song that is without a doubt one of the top 10 Funk/Disco songs of all time and a true litmus test of what Earth, Wind & Fire does best-funk! For it's day, this concert was state of the art with an amazing stage and fantastic light and pyrotechnic show to boot. The end credit sequence is cool too, with the audience dancing their way out of the venue, complete with the latest fashions of 1981. For fans of 'The Funk', this is a great DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing elements! June 22 2004
By curlean
Format:DVD
Excellent representation of the GREATEST BAND Ever! However, No Kalimba, NO Levitation, No Pyramid, The essence is missing! EW&F Definitely "Showed Up and Out" on this concert; Just without those three unique elements to their show....leaves a bit to be desired. If You can get that All-n-All concert tour on DVD, I'd definitely buy that also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best concert I've ever seen.... Dec 23 2003
Format:DVD
There are admittedly some flaws with this DVD- meaning it's not long enough, there is over dubbing (done well enough not really intrude unless you're looking for it) and some of their songs like September, Love's Holiday, and After the Love is Gone to name a few that aren't on this and could've made it longer. ALL THAT SAID: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST, FUNNEST AND MOST ENJOYABLE 58 MINUTES YOU WILL EVER WATCH! I love this video. I saw it on "Visions" cable in Alaska back in 1982 back when HBO was the only pay channel and taped this off of that. I LOVE that this is available on DVD. They did a great job on cleaning up the analog recording. Someone else's review took exception to the video quality. I don't know if they wanted 3D or if they were just used to digital to digital. This started as an analog video and as such is limited by that- but the picture is fabulous to me (esepcially in comparison with the crappy copy I had on VHS.)
This DVD is hands down one of the best concerts I've ever watch on DVD- with all the energy, fun and honest love for music that the entire band displays it is contagious and so much fun to watch. The camera work is good- they do a great job of getting around to each member of the band - showing them having a good time and even "funning" around. The soprano sax solo by Andrew Woolfolk is smokin' and the "national anthem" of "That's the Way of the World" is so sincere and uplifting. Just a great concert!!!!!
This DVD would be worth it to me if it was $50 ( but luckily it's not.) I love this concert. It's full of great music and so much fun- and to quote Mr. Phillip Bailey, the "genius of Maurice White."

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Short and too Expensive Dec 9 2003
Format:DVD
I like this Earth, Wind and Fire DVD with the exceptions mentioned in the title. Fifty eight mintutes is a tv show not a concert. Over twenty dollars for less then one hour is over priced.

3.0 out of 5 stars True Fan July 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The first time I saw this on VHS I was blown away because this was the first EWF concert released on video. But after watching it three or four times I noticed that the overdubbing was very heavy.The sound was still great but to me live means "live". I recommend EWF Live in Japan or EWF Live By Request.

I recently bought this video because I LOVE EWF So Much!!! I just saw them in concert in Bernalillo, NM and Philip Bailey sent me to the moon!!! I've loved EWF ever since I was a child, but was too young to see them in concert. I cried because I could not go. Their music is Magical, Mystical,Spiritual and Timeless. It could be a THOUSAND years from now and they would STILL be heard and talked about!!! I wish that today's youth can hear and experience their music. They can hear what REAL MUSIC is and identify it. Music from the Heart,the Soul and the Spirit. Especially the CHILDREN. They need so very badly to absorb the words and melodies just as I did when I was young. I am 34 years old and I had childhood memories at the concert, of sneaking into my sister's room and listening to her 45's of EWF and other groups. I just want to say "I LOVE YOU EWF" May God bless you and keep your music alive until the end of time!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars EW&F: In Concert
The sound is great, but video quality very poor. The band sounds super. I would recommend EW&F Live in Japan, because it got much better video quality.
