Product Description

Amazon.ca

Back in 1983, Prince emphatically described how he was going to bring in the new millennium. Still, who knew "1999" would be so prophetic? Who knew Prince would still be around to make good on his promise? It's doubtful you were sitting home, watching a pay-per-view special on the last night of 1999, but know this: The Artist, Prince--whatever he's calling himself on a daily basis--understands how to throw one amazing party. This DVD not only presents the entire 21-song pay-per-view in its entirety, but also includes behind-the-scenes interviews and adds additional jams featuring Jimmy Russell, bassist Larry Graham, and George Clinton. Clinton is the key figure here, because over the last decade, Prince has essentially followed in the funk master's footsteps. Rather than just fronting a band (as he did with the Revolution and New Power Generation), Prince is now more of a bandleader. Here, surrounded by legends like Maceo Parker and members of Sly and the Family Stone, Prince displays the graciousness of a sideman, showcasing the musicians on his crowded stage. He offers backup vocals on the Family Stone's "Everyday People," and then plays cheerleader on "I Want to Take You Higher." Prince even gives up his stage to Lenny Kravitz for "American Woman," and to the Time for energetic, tongue-in-cheek versions of the hits "Jungle Love" and "The Bird." When taking center stage, Prince shows he hasn't lost a step either. His guitar playing on "Purple Rain," for example, is some of his strongest in years. All told, this is the best Prince concert film we've had since Sign O' the Times. --Dave McCoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Until they release "Sign" on DVD... buy this one Aug. 25 2003
Format:DVD
As a Prince fan from way back, I have to admit that I've been pretty lax in my purchases of late. "The Rainbow Children" was an interesting foray into his jazz fetishes, while "Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic" (his attempt at 'Santana'-type blockbuster status once more) was capable at best, but I haven't been as interested as I once was... why?
It's because of that elusive 'live' gig.
With "Sign 'O' The Times" still out there on laserdisc and VHS, and a plethora of perfect-sounding/masterfully performed bootlegs out there, I can't give this 5 stars, because it's far from perfect, but for now, it will do.
With the exception of the drummer and the pointless go-go dancing foils, Prince's line-up for this performance is pretty solid. Larry Graham especially shines, no matter how mannered and overdone these particular songs might be in the Prince live show. Highlights: "Everyday People", "American Woman", "Red House", "She's Always In My Hair", "Raspberry Beret", "Purple Rain", and "The Cross/Christ".
The lowlights? An excess of religion (although nobody should be surprised by this), a lack of really EXTENDED jams as on the '88 Lovesexy tour, and unnecessarily spotless production. It should sound a lot grittier at times, but doesn't.

Format:DVD
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GREAT MOMENT OF MUSIC, DON'T LOSE TIME NO MORE, YOU GOT IT ! THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST DVD I HEARD IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. PRINCE IS A GREAT GUITARIST AND SHOWMAN. GREAT MUSICIANS ARE ON STAGE TOO, MACEO PARKER, LARRY GRAHAM, GEORGE CLINTON...YOU CAN BUY THIS DVD ONLY FOR THE KILLER PURPLE RAIN VERSION, BUT GOOD NEWS, YOU HAVE ALSO 22 OTHER TRACKS ON IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind Boggling July 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Prince's talent and charisma, that is. His genius really shines in this New Year's Eve 1999 performance; it almost isn't possible to get your mind wrapped around his capabilities they're so stellar.
The hidden gem of the concert is easily a blues take off of Red House (re-done as Purple House - natch). Prince's vocal and guitar solo are nothing short of spectacular.
If you love Funk, and you love His Royal Badness - BUY THIS! If you're not a Prince fan yet - YOU WILL BE!

5.0 out of 5 stars I ONLY WISH I WAS THERE TO SEE IT LIVE! May 11 2003
By flex
Format:DVD
I absolutely LOVE Prince's music. To see him perform in concert on this DVD makes it that much better! I was kind of hoping it would have a few more songs from the album like "so far so pleased", "man of war", and "silly game". Other than that, every song on the DVD was great, especially the Purple Rain performance! I would recommend any TRUE Prince fan to buy this DVD... Regardless of the price! (It's that good)

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince & company are jamming April 24 2002
Format:DVD
This is the funkiest Prince concert ever!! Let me get my one criticism out of the way, it's the crowd, at times they act like they aren't in to the music and Prince has to pursuade them to participate!! I couldn't understand this reaction because Prince and his band play some of the funkiest music you could ever want to hear!!
You don't hear this kind of funk from the youngsters of today, I doubt if they know what the funk really is!! Get this concert if you love bass thumpin, horn driven funky music!!
