5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh exciting entertainment Nov. 6 2009
By AmCan
I wish this show would air in North America. I would watch this show every week. This gives you a glimpse of the various artists who played and interviewed in Abbey Road Studio Live. The HD recordings are exceptional with the right sound system. Not since MTv first began has a music show been so captivating and interesting. A great way to experience new artists for the first time. There are a lot of great artists out there that just are not played on popular radio and this show introduces many of them. I am very impressed by the selection of artists on this show. They should release the season in its entirety rather then just a compilation of best of clips. Highly recommend!

my review title says it all. It's worth every penny... even if you only like one song from the entire selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUSIC LOVERS DREAM Nov. 11 2008
By Mark Turner - Published on Amazon.com
I've always been a music fanatic. For some reason I always seem to have music on no matter what. In the car, in the house, mp2 player, they're always up and running. I've collected music on vinyl, tape, disc and now online. And I've never limited myself to one form or another. Country, rock, r & b, jazz, soul, classic. I love them all.

An appreciation and love of music is not something you can force on someone. You either have it or you don't. You can be led to it, but to feel it rooted deep in your soul is another matter. Those roots can be covered over, buried deep by the problems of day to day life. If you can find a hook to dig deep and find those roots, you'd be amazed at the joyous feelings they can inspire.

I think that this was the basis for a new series showcased on DVD this week with the release of LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD. The studio made famous by the Beatles back in the sixties (and which they used for an album title) is used to its full effect here.

As the box states "The concept for LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD is simple...capture fantastic, live, musical performances and place musicians in the world's most inspiring and creative environment in which to do so". Yes, it may sound simple, but the concept works and the performances are stellar.

The idea that someone could come up with a tune, a melody, harmonization, instrumentals, vocals and more is amazing in itself. To find a group of talented individuals willing to perform live in this studio is to help cultivate an appreciation for all that they do.

No musical scene is left untouched here. Country? LeAnn Rimes. Jazz? Wynton Marsalis. Pop? John Mayer. Progressive rock? David Gilmour. Metal? Iron Maiden. Not just these but a whole slew of other bands and performers as well.

One of the nice things about this series is that it not only takes the performers and highlights them performing familiar or non-familiar tunes, it gives them a chance to talk about the creative process as well. To hear someone like David Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame discuss how he saved ideas for up to ten years and then sorted through them to find the ones that were worth turning into songs gives new depth to those tunes, here in particular "On An Island".

All of the artists featured here give glimpses into the way they put together ideas and songs. And then they offer up a tune performed live in the studio. The sound is magnificent as it well should be considering the location. And the performances have a more intimate feel to them than they would on a massive stage.

The DVD is a two disc set. On disc one are featured John Mayer, Corinne Bailey Rae, Dr. John, Craig David, Damien Rice, LeAnn Rimes, Josh Groban,. Natasha Bedingfield, Wynton Marsalis, Nerina Pallot, Jamiroquai, Ray LaMontagne, Gipsy Kings and Norah Jones. Disc two has David Gilmour, The Good The Bad & The Queen, The Kooks, Gnarls Barkley, The Goo Goo Dolls, Iron Maiden, Kasabian, Primal Scream, The Zutons, Dave Matthews and Amos Lee.

For those with no interest in music you might change your mind after listening. For those with a passing interest in music you might find something here to spur you on to listen even more and search out these artists. And for music fanatics like me, you'll want to make sure that the stereo system is hooked into the DVD player to get the best sound imaginable.

This DVD is not something that the true music fan will want to simply rent. This is one to add to the collection. BCI has released a great disc for fans that is not to be missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Not Enough Content March 5 2010
By Mitchel Stivason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this and thought that I would get the full performance from each artist. I was definitely wrong. You get one performance and a short interview with each artist. The video and audio quality is awesome but if you are hoping to get all performances then you will be disappointed as well. Would love to find a full box set with all performances, or the possibility to download/buy a full performance by artist and create a collection. I would wait to see if either becomes available before buying this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars You cannot go wrong with this Dec 6 2008
By Keith Piterson - Published on Amazon.com
These performances on this Bluray disc are the best of series one, which feature a very diverse group of artist performing songs that stretch across musical genres. You cannot go wrong listening to today best and brightest being recorded and filmed in one of music's most hallowed and revered venues. The artist performances are first rate, the video is excellent, images were clean, relatively sharp, free of noise, and very naturally presented. Colors were nicely rendered with a rich tonal balance, nicely saturated, and completely free of chroma noise or bleed.Naturally when you view concert video, its all about the sound and boy is it good. We are graced with two flavors of audio, a 5.1 Dts MA lossless mix, and a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD mix as well. From a musical standpoint this is purely a 4.0 mix, with the center channel utilized only for commentary between tracks, or just before a performance. If you get a chance, listen to the recording sans the video.
For those of you who are true music fans this disc is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live at Abbey Road: a wonderful sampling of music Feb. 21 2009
By Jordan A. Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Live from Abbey Road is a fantastic sampling of music from all genres of the musical world. This two disc DVD set features artists such as John Mayer, Josh Groban, Corrine Bailey Rae, Damien Rice, Dave Matthews, Jamiroquai, Iron Maiden, and many more.
This musical compilation gives you a brief close up interview with each artist, then gives you a taste of their musical style as you watch them play a live version of one of their songs. Live from Abbey Road is a terrific way for someone to find out about an artist or style that they've never experienced before. I got the DVD originally because there were one or two artists on it whom I liked. however, after watching the DVD in its entirety, I ended up thoroughly enjoying the music of many artists I had never heard of before. It is a great DVD for music enthusiasts who enjoy variety.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pick-and-choose July 19 2009
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Live from Abbey Road is a popular music TV show in the UK, showcasing artists perform live in the famous Abbey Road studios (at one point Johnny Rzeznik points to a microphone, and almost drools "This is the microphone that John Lennon sang into!"). This DVD collection brings the best of the program's first season.

"Live From Abbey Road: Best of Season One" (2 DVDs; 200 min.) brings a wealth of performances and interviews. DVD 1 (80 min.) is not all that interesting to me but for a couple of artists. Damien Rice brings a beautiful performance of "9 Crimes" along with Lisa Hannigan (I can only hope these two will get together again to make music). Dr. John remains a strong performer after all these years. Norah Jones and her band bring an okay "Thinkin' About You" but she really needs to widen her musical landscape and get away from the formulaic semi-jazzy songs. Lots of other artists on DVD 1 that I just don't care for (Craig David, LeAnn Rimes, Josh Groban, Natasha Bedingfield, among many others). I rate DVD 1 just 2 stars. DVD 2 is much more enjoyable for me, due to the line-up of the artists: The Kooks bring a great performance of "Naive", The Goo Goo Dolls are good on "Iris", Kasabian blaze through "Shoot The Runner", The Zutons bring their hit "Valerie", Dave Matthews brings "American Baby" solo on acoustic guitar, etc. The second DVD also brings 50+ min. of additional interviews (check out John Mayer's response to the interviewer asking him "who is John Mayer?") and other behind the scenes. I rate the second DVD a strong 4 stars.

The sound quality on here is nothing short of spectectular, in particular if you have the proper home theatre system set-up (which I happen to have). Play it loud! Most of the time, the editing is quite good, generally staying away from changing camera angles every 2 seconds so that you can actually watch and enjoy the performers (one major exception is on the Kasabian performance, with almost migraine-inducing MTV-style editing). In all, this is a pick-and-choose affair, but when it's on, it's really on.
