If you are contemplating purchasing this then the chances are very high that you are an Amy fan. If you are new to Amy then read on ...
This is an impressive live performance filmed in London. The director has been very sympathetic to the live performance making it feel very intermate. Tracks are from both of Amy's albums "Frank" and "Back to Black". The live sound and musicianship is excellent. This performance shows Amy at her best; she is very loose and interacts with the audience. If you are more of a visual than just audio person and want to see one of the finest jazz performances then you have to get this.
For the fans: The documentary with this performance is excellent. It has interviews with people closest to her including her father and includes audition clips with her record company. It also has lots of clips of her live from small clubs to Glastonbury (where I saw her on the pyramid stage). It is professionally done and shows how Amy arrived from a teenager to star of "Back to Black" One of the highlights for me was hearing Amy and her father talking about her trip into rehab. You can see where all the lyrics to "Rebah" came from. So personal it's unbelieveable.
Well worth the money.
