Great dvd for Neko fans. Her voice breaks my heart on a regular basis. But in a good way. Buy it.

HASH(0xa2f9b6f0) out of 5 stars Neko Case, brilliant fox confessor from 2003, worthy of six stars! Oct. 11 2006
By Fred Rudofsky - Published on Amazon.com
This has to rank among the top ten shows ACL has ever broadcast, and whether you are new to Neko or a long-time fan, you'll want to get yourself a copy. Heck, I bought three! Her voice is soulful, and the sparse accompaniement makes those spaces between the notes just that much more poignant. Kelly Hogan's harmonies deserve a big thumbs-up, too--she's the best singing partner since Emmylou Harris. Jon Rauhouse plays some sublime steel and banjo, and Tom Ray (with ZZ Top inspired beard, as Neko noted in the original broadcast) plays the notes that hold it together behind Neko's deft tenor playing. "Deep Red Bells", "In California", and the best Dylan cover this side of Hendrix, "Buckets of Rain" (is there a better love song than Neko's performance here?), will have you raving to the music fans in your life. Get friends and family a copy, and enjoy this artisan of the twilight realm of deep sound and vivid imagery, Neko Case. And hopefully, ACL will have a full show (60 minutes +) someday of Neko and her current band.

HASH(0xa2f9baf8) out of 5 stars Fantastic night under "the stars"! Oct. 11 2006
By D. S. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com

Just got my copy, and popped it straight into my DVD player (no problems playing at all).The picture and sound quality is absolutely superb. I have never seen any Austin City Limits broadcast look or sound this good!

Neko is so good that I'm almost afraid to introduce my friends to her music, from fear that she might get big and be ruined by the music industry! Having said that, the selections here are a good introduction to those who haven't been converted yet. My only complaints would be that I kinda wish that she would've went ahead and included a drummer (although bassist Tom Ray does a great job of multitasking by playing the bass and stomping on a tambourine at the same time, something I didn't notice when I saw the broadcast version), and I was slightly disappointed that the producers of the DVD cut out a bit of the between-song banter that was on the broadcast version. Very minor quibbles for yet another stellar addition to the Neko Case catalog.

HASH(0xa2f9bf30) out of 5 stars Incredible! Oct. 12 2006

I was very excited to hear about this new DVD of a Neko Case concert. The 5.1 sound is incredible and well-worth it. Having seen Neko in concert, I'd say this is a real treat. You'll be glad you bought it!

HASH(0xa2f9bf48) out of 5 stars Extremely good March 25 2007
By Up The Stairs - Published on Amazon.com

I came into the Neko Case camp a bit late, having received her album, Fox Confessor, just a few months ago. I had no idea the woman existed, but I am now a big fan. After being intrigued by the album, I wanted to see her actually sing, so I bought this dvd from Amazon hoping for the best. I am very satisfied with this Austin City Limits performance, but, after hearing Fox Confessor, it does sound a bit dated. Having said that, I want to point out that it really doesn't matter. She's a great singer and a very gracious and generous performer. I'm not sure if I've ever watched anybody sing with such heartfelt warmth for her audience.

On this dvd she has a sparse, yet tight band. She also employs a back-up singer along with the other four musicians. It is all very good stuff, a bit country, but mostly straight ahead music. She has since moved slightly left of country and more into a jazz-folk sound, and that could explain my comment about the performance seeming dated. Nonetheless, it is great stuff, and I highly recommend Neko Case on Austin City Limits. I look for big things from Neko Case in the future. She definitely is an improvement over the stale sounds being thrown at us from the corporate offerings.

HASH(0xa2f9bf6c) out of 5 stars Case takes it down a notch Jan. 26 2007
By Matthew Brundage - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Case isn't as rousing as she appears to be on The Tigers Have Spoken, her 2004 live disc. The instrumentation is sparse, which allows for Case's voice to stretch out, most evident on "Look for Me (I'll Be Around)".

I'd give the music performance itself five stars. However, the DVD presentation is lacking. The soundtrack is adequate, but the video is in non-anamorphic 4x3. I'm used to watching Austin City Limits on PBS in widescreen high-def, so I was expecting accompanying DVD releases to be in widescreen as well. The DVD box itself makes no mention of the aspect ratio, although it does tout the audio choices.
