Supertenor Andrea Bocelli sends a memento to fans with this generous CD/DVD combo package, which features a concert taped for broadcast on PBS and a CD boasting unreleased studio material. Pop in the DVD for a special live performance from Bocelli, dressed in dashing Armani black, held on a specially constructed floating stage in Lake Las Vegas. The 18-song show, which largely consists of numbers from the chart-topping album Amore, builds to a highpoint with an expressive Heather Headley duet, "The Prayer," while bonus video features include interviews and a "making-of" documentary. Slip in the CD and treat yourself to previously unavailable studio cuts, including "Can't Help Falling in Love," a stirring duet with American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee, plus further guest appearances from Stevie Wonder on "Canzone Stonate" and trumpeter Chris Botti on "Estate". Reprises of songs from the live show, such as Bocelli's rendition of Neil Diamond's pop classic "September Morn," fill out the nine-track CD; together with the DVD and its thrilling under-the-stars concert footage, it's a Bocelli cornucopia no fan can resist.
All Music Guide - John Bush
Billed as the first pop concert performance in Andrea Bocelli's career, the show anthologized on Under the Desert Sky was taped at the Lake Las Vegas Resort and featured an elaborate stage production from David Foster and Humberto Gatica, the pair who made a crossover hit out of Bocelli's 2006 album Amore. It's packaged as a CD/DVD combo, with a peculiar emphasis on the DVD side, since it includes more than twice as many songs as the CD. The audio portion has only five songs from the concert, plus four studio duets that are leftovers from the Amore sessions one is actually an edited version of a song that did appear, Stevie Wonder's "Canzoni Stonate". The highlight of the duets is unquestionably "The Prayer," which Foster wrote with Carole Bayer Sager for the movie Quest for Camelot. Bocelli's vocal partner, Heather Headley, proves a great match and their harmonies reach a peak that's barely equaled even on the Amore album she is a Tony winner, after all. The DVD portion includes 18 performances from the concert Under the Desert Sky, plus interviews with Bocelli, Foster, and Gatica on the making of Amore, a photo gallery, and a featurette on Lake Las Vegas.

    A wonderful collection of Love songs.

    This is a wonderful set to have. I listen to it all the time. It makes a wonderful gift if you know someone who enjoys classical/pop music.
