Product Description

Bee Gees ~ Bee Gees - One Night Only (Dts

Amazon.ca

Taped as a lavish cable television special in 1997, One Night Only trades on the Bee Gees' shape-shifting career as pop survivors. Over the course of 111 minutes, this straightforward concert, produced at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and groomed for both video and CD posterity, sprints through 31 songs from their past three decades. Even after the inevitable disco jokes are expended, and the jaundiced viewer contemplates the role hats, hairspray, and comb-overs now play in dressing the once stylishly long-haired troika, the Gibb brothers' signature vocal harmonies and hook-laden song craft beg respect.

Casual listeners can't be blamed for equating the Bee Gees with the dance floor bonanza they reaped through 1978's Saturday Night Fever, yet that commercial zenith was actually the culmination of a comeback for a group that had seemed washed up by the early '70s. One Night Only thankfully takes an even-handed view of both their original late '60s hits ("Massachusetts," "To Love Somebody," "Lonely Days"), building from a cannily Beatle-browed vocal sound, and the '70s blue-eyed soul ("Jive Talkin'," "Nights on Broadway") that led them naturally into disco. The Fever hits are here, as are Gibb originals that clicked for other acts; the family circle also widens for a posthumous duet with their late brother, Andy Gibb, while Celine Dion gets star billing in the collaborative "Immortality." --Sam Sutherland --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Si vous aimez les Bee Gees acheter ce DVD, ils y font une rétrospective de toute leur carrière, incluant les chansons des années 60, comme Massachusetts, I Started A Joke et les années 70 avec Lonely Days, How can You Mend A Broken Heart. on y retrouve évidemment tout leur succès pendant la période disco. Les Bee Gees sont très en forme sur le plan vocal, interprétant leurs pièces avec une justesse remarquable, l'image et le son vraiment excellent et en bonus Céline Dion vient chanter avec toute sa sensibilité en duo avec Barry Gibbs. Pour moi c'est le meilleur spectacle des Bee Gees.

HISTORY:

1997 was an amazing year for the Bee Gees, with inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, plus Lifetime Achievement Awards from the British, American and World Music Awards, the the Australian record industry, and the German Bambi Awards topped off by a “One Night Only” concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, their only live concert in 1997 and first US concert in nearly 10 years.

Most of you, including myself, have purchased the “One Night Only” DVD released in 1997. Now Eagle Rock Entertainment has upconverted this concert to high definition. The burning question is “should I double dip?” I have compared the HD and SD versions. Hopefully, after you have finished reading my review, you will come to the same conclusion as I have. Let’s read on…

HD vs. SD:

SIZE DOES MATTER:

The most important and obvious upgrade is that the blu ray version is widescreen, whereas the standard version was 1.33:1. Here, what a difference this makes to bring joy to my heart to watch this concert the way it was originally recorded.

VIDEO:

The blu ray version arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080i 1.78:1 encode. Although the overall picture is on the soft side, nevertheless, the HD video is far superior than the SD video. In my home theatre, I have a McIntosh MP 1000 video processor that will upconvert any video to 1080p. In my comparison, I find that there are more details in the blu ray version, where you can distinguish different hair strands on Barry’s hair and beard on Barry and Maurice’s faces. The colour is subdued in both cases, but the green colour on Barry’s guitar is boosted in the high definition version. Skin tones are spot on.

If you are a fan of the Beegees, this is a must have for your collection. The quality is superb if you don't mind that it's taped live. This, however, does not take away from the quality of the performance - it enhances it. This DVD catches the interaction of the three brothers as they start with songs from the beginning of their career through the disco era and then their latest work. There is very little 'dead' space where someone talks alot - just hit after hit. Also has a good interview for those individuals who want to know a little more about who these musicians are.

In response to the review from Mississippi, I would say yes, anyone that does not think the quality of the recording is on par with others such as Hell Freezes Over, A Black and White Night, and Live at the Beacon should check out their system....this recording is exactly as the director/producer intended. That, however, is where I take exception....
I own the aforementioned music DVDs and probably close to 60 others. I believe that one of the best uses a surround system can be put to is the playback of a concert video/DVD. You can at least watch them more than twice, which is more than I can say for DVD movies. The price of live concerts is a lot higher than going to the movies these days, making them a much better buy. Yes I have an up-to-date system and have spend considerable time, effort, and money making my environment the best that it can be. For example: Most do not go to the length of getting out the tape measure to set the correct delay compensation due to distance nor do they run test and measurement programs such as ETF5 from Accoustisoft against their setups. So I believe that my system is working correctly.
Now to the point: The totally underused center channel will be very disconcerting for the average listener, especially on a DTS disc. The full field front spatial characteristics of the recording do not produce the even concert sound as experienced sitting in the sweet spot at a live concert. Not in the way that Hell does or even the onstage effect that Black and White gives. I really thought that the director/producer would take visual and sound ques into consideration in mix down, but this is not the case. When Celine sings she seems to be coming from the back of the stage, when in fact, she is right out there front and center.

I really love this concert, so my 3 star rating is for the Blu-ray presentation and not the concert itself. I already had the DVD (1998 Eagle Rock/Image Entertainment version), which looks and sounds very good. I saw this Blu-ray (2010 Eagle Vision/Warner Music SD Blu-ray with DTS-HD audio) at HMV for $10 and bought it because I hoped Blu-ray would be significantly better picture and sound than the DVD. I didn't open it until I read positive ratings on the internet... which I must contest. My review is a comparison between the two formats.

Both the DVD and the Blu-ray contains the same concert and editing, so the program itself is the same. 32 songs are played (one song is played twice and some songs are shortened and played in medley form with other songs). The program is tightly edited so that there is not much talking or time between songs. To date, it is the best and only full Bee Gees concert available and it is very good. While the brothers don't sound so young any more (the concert was filmed in 1997), they still sound good. There are definitely added extra vocal tracks enhancing some songs.

The DVD has a single sided insert with the names of the songs written and the composers of each song that's easy to read. The DVD cover does not list the songs at all. The Blu-ray lists the songs on the back (but without chapter numbers) for the concert and has an two-fold picture insert with the names of the songs, which looks nicer but is much harder to read. Both the Blu-ray and DVD have the same picture on them but the picture is much larger on the Blu-ray so it looks nicer.

The DVD menu only lets you press play or go to a specific song.
