Never heard of the studio 'Charly', but this 2 DVD set was incredibly well produced; and at 58, Iggy still rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars The new Jon is as good as the old Jon, very enjoyable performance!, Jan. 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just when you thought that no one can replace Jon Anderson, Jon Davison is pretty close (95%?), with a very slightly different style. Such case for Yes is even better than that for Journey, which have an excellent signer Arnel Pineda replacing Steve Perry since a few years ago.
The new Jon has no problem in reaching high notes and his voice is beautiful, just like the old Jon.
Perhaps the only complaint is that the audio is 2.0, no 5.1 ...
Very enjoyable performance, of course also attributable to the fact that as long as you have Steve Howe on guitar, and Chris Squire on bass, how can you be disappointed? In addition, now we have Jon Davison on vocal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great voice!, Sept. 12 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
He deserves better recognition, though singing classical song(s) years ago attracted quite some 'biased' criticism.

His voice is still so soulful; still keep it so stable while singing at the same time of walking on the aisle to greet the audience.

A very enjoyable performance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann's voice is still great at the age of 63 (unbelievable), Sept. 12 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was hesitant to buy this one, since it's already their 5th bluray.

As soon as it was played, there's no such worry anymore.

Ann's voice is still great at the age of 63 (unbelievable); there's a new arrangement for 'Dog and Butterfly'; and even the new songs are so well done.

I will surely buy their next bluray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen has always been brilliant! Incredible Audio and Video!, Sept. 12 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Queen has always been brilliant!

Sound and Video of this 40 years old's concert are incredibly great!

Hope they 'could' also find the tapes of the 1979 concert(s) released as the 2 LP/CD 'Live Killers', and put them on Blu Ray.

Miss you, Freddie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bryan at his prime, July 12 2014
I own quite some cds and dvds of Bryan, always enjoy his singing, but not as much until watching and 'hearing' this one.
He's at his prime, and this concert is truly unplugged.
6 out of 5 stars. 😊

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So touching! If you love music and/or still have faith in humanity, don't miss this great film and Rodriguez's music.
The interview with the director Malik Bendjelloul is also inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Deep Purple Concert on DVD ever!, Oct. 26 2013
This Concert is Deep Purple Mark II, Live from Sydney, Australia in 1984. I own all the DP's official DVDs/BluRays, and this one is easily the best. It's great to see Ritchie having fun playing with the other band members, and so did Ian, Ian, Jon, and Roger. It's also great to watch the 'young' purples (all stil in their 30's at the concert except Jon), so energetic, so skillful. In an interview with Ian, he mentioned that Ritchie thought that he's better than Eric Clapton, to me, even it may be subjective, is true. You can hardly find a band who has such skills to jam and improvise so much in one concert, and such jamming and improvisation are fantastic. The R&R H&F committee, for some reasons, has forgotten such a great band, for which they should have been voted into the R&R H&F in 1993, and is now 20 years overdue. I sometimes think that committee doesn't really listen to music, and still think that Deep Purple is a song, not a band? It owes not only Deep Purple, especially Jon who has passed July last year, and all the DP fans an apology and a satisfactory explanation. Fans, forget such committee, and enjoy this concert, those songs from the 'Perfect Strangers' which were new at that time have also now become some classics. Hope that it will also be released on BluRay very soon! You're the best, and thank you for bringing us so many good music over the years, Jon (RIP, and forgive that committee), Ian, Ian, Roger, Ritchie, and other DP band members.

4.0 out of 5 stars Defective 2nd disc for mine, Jan. 30 2013
5 stars performance, I own both the DVDs and Blu Rays, unfortunately I bought the Blu Rays at a place very far from home, and found that the 2nd disc is defective. Should have bought it from amazon or their market seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Incredible! Incredible!, Dec 6 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live in London (Audio CD)
He didn't look like 68, because he had face lift, but depending on how you see it, we may consider it as his sacrifice as a performer.

His voice was better than before, but of course he couldn't move like a 38 years old in singing 'Copacabana', but don't worry, somebody else danced for him.

No matter why several well-known entertainers have praised him, including Sinatra, who was quoted in the 1970s saying, "He's next." In 1988, Bob Dylan stopped him at a party, hugged him and said, "Don't stop what you're doing, man. We're all inspired by you." I really enjoy it especially when the audience sang along.

It's too short, otherwise, it deserves 7 stars.

Incredible performance, orchestra, and audience too.
