  1. I just got the disk today. Unfortunately, when I play it on my computer (using legally bought Cyberlink PowerDVD), the FBI warning stays over the middle of the screen even after the program starts. I just paid for a disk that I cannot play because someone thought it necessary to tell me not to steal the disk! How frustrating.

    Fortunately, I bought the DVD at the same time and I am watching that right now. Had I not done so, this would be the moment I would go online to “illegally” download the show. Thank you very much FBI/MPAA/RIAA and associates. 🙁

  2. I ordered TWO coppies of this DVD — one as a gift. When my copy was defective (pixilation and stops and starts in program), I checked the “gift” copy. It, too was not playing properly. It is NOT my DVD player as several other discs played just fine. This was a wonderful program and I was so looking forward to re-living it and sharing the great performances with others. Now Shout Factory has not responded to my requests (via e-mail) to return/exchange these DVDs. HELP~!

  3. Could’ve been a great concert if only better friends had been on hand.

    James Taylor is the worse of the bunch: I didn’t know SLIP SLIDIN’ AWAY was a FUNNY SONG until I watched him perform it here! Man, was he constipated or what? Only the great Steve Gadd on drums plus Stevie Wonder and the quite numerous background musicians save the day.

    There are good moments indeed, like Art Garfunkel’s heartfelt finale on Bridge Over Troubled Waters (only due here). So buy this thing if you’re a completist. Otherwise, let it pass.

  4. La unica musica que he podido escuchar es la del main menu. El resto solo tiene VIDEO pero no hay AUDIO solo un ruido al fondo…. increible tratandose de un disco original , blue ray y no precisamente en promocion !!!
