How long have we been waiting for this to come out on DVD? I¿m not sure. I only know my VHS is threadbare and unwatchable. To see Carly performing live on that windy and beautiful coast of her home island...it just gets better with the years. Her voice is at its strongest and clearest, the band - with the great T Bone Wolk and Ricky Marotta - is completely as one with her, and the whole event just sounds, looks and feels like what every intimate concert should. When she performs the haunting `Do The Walls Come Down¿, with her hair softly blowing in the ocean breeze and the gulls gliding through the sky in the distance, you are so transported to the spot that you feel the chill in the air. When she takes the piano to do `You¿re So Vain¿, grinning and leading a mesmerized audience along, you¿ll swear it tops the original recording. The DVD itself, produced by Jodie Wright, is in perfect harmony with the content. It¿s cleanly and simply designed, with stunning images under the menus and no unnecessary alleyways to stumble into. Not only does the Surround Sound enhance the music, but the digital remastering of the footage itself does wonders for the visuals; I swear, the original showing on HBO didn¿t look this good. I strongly recommend viewing the interview with Carly first, although I suspect fans don¿t need any such urging. Filmed this year specifically for this release, it reveals Carly at her most bewitching: remembering, joking, and adding disarmingly honest insights here and there. This isn¿t just a keeper for Carly Simon fans. At the risk of sounding like an internet blurb, I can¿t think of many better gifts than a knock-out performance by a star famous for her rare appearances, on a finely-crafted DVD. PS to Ms Wright: when can we hope for the Grand Central concert?

This is the most perfectly pleasing sound & video experience I've ever had with a DVD. The surround sound and the digital remastering of this video are crystal clear. I felt as if a private Carly concert was taking place in my living room, my peripheral vision disappeared into tunnel vision. The scrapbook section is gorgeous, presented as a slide show with lots of pictures I had never seen while Carly's 'Back The Way' played in the background. I loved the 20 minute interview with Carly at her Martha's Vineyard home. She is so funny, so animated, and so down to earth. I would have paid triple the price just to have the bonus performance of 'The Right Thing To Do' and all of the never before seen footage of day 2 of this concert. I truly hope that Carly's other two concerts will be released on DVD.
