DVD #1 is the first rehearsal at Carroll's Studio, in November 1974. It's a great show and is something like watching a home movie in visual presentation. The music is great .
DVD #2 (about 1 hour 49 minutes) begins with a brief history commentary by Barry, in his home studio I believe, telling about this "final" tour. The DVD then opens in concert, at The Pond, Anaheim, California, November 2004, with Barry saying a few words again to the audience and jumping into an opening medly. There are great and beautiful Barry classics included, as always, such as "Even Now, I Made It Through the Rain, Somewhere Down the Road," and others. Included are also: "Why Don't We Live Together". Also included here is a film clip of Young Barry in the `70s playing and singing "Mandy", which moves to Seasoned Barry, singing "Mandy". There is a fantastic version of "They Dance" from Barry's album "The Mayflower," with 2 of his dancers doing a really super dance routine while Barry sings. Barry also sings a few of the commercial jingles he wrote in the old days.
"Brooklyn Blues" rocks and includes Dave Koz. Dave and George Shelby do an absolutely outstanding sax-jaz duet in this extended version of "Brooklyn Blues" while Barry sings and plays piano. Whew! That was awesome!!! He also does both versions of "Could It Be Magic," soft and uptempo, and both are fantastic! He does "River," -beautiful song! Great extended versions of "Dancin'Fool" and "Copa". The concert finishes with Barry singing a medley while reminding us that we are all ONE people--in brotherhood--LOVE--BEAUTIFUL! This finale is such a rush of positive energy!
The sound and visual clarity on the second DVD is great. Plenty of close up shots that make you feel like you're right on stage with Barry. (The first DVD, being what it is, is expectedly like watching an old home movie)
