If you're a fan of Chicago or EW&F get this disc!

  • Excerpt: As a huge Chicago fan I was very excited to watch this concert disc despite some less than stellar reviews on this site. Well I sucked it up and bought the BD and I'm very glad that I did. The picture is a very strong HD. Not reference quality, but very good; there's no mistaking that this is Blu-ray, as opposed to standard dvd as some reviews have stated. What really impressed me was the audio.

Jaw Dropping Live Concert Performance On Blu-Ray!!!

  • Excerpt: WOW...WHAT A GREAT CONCERT!!! Three hours of Chicago mixed with Earth Wind and Fire is the greatest concert any fan of rock, jazz, funk, soul and big horn bands could possibly want. Chicago and EW&F perform so seamlessly well together that they should seriously consider joining forces and become one large band. PQ is great and the lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio is fantastic!

Tremendous combination of two classic bands having a three hour blast!

  • Excerpt: I have to admit I’m puzzled by most of the reviews here – this is an outstanding concert. Sure, there are many missing band members, but realize this concert was made 37 years after Chicago was formed, and 35 years after Earth, Wind and Fire were started. Groups with many musicians will inevitably see changes in lineups. Other than U2, how many bands go 30+ years with no changes?

Disappointing

  • Excerpt: Disappointing. This disc is just a little better than standard definition. The video quality was okay ... not great for Blu-ray. The audio was okay ... not great for Blu-ray. If you want true HD surround sound, try Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds: Live at Radio City [ http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/movies.php?id=489 ]. It is INCREDIBLE!

Two halves don't always make a whole when the whole is ravaged by Fath

  • Excerpt: THE MOVIE: (Note: For reasons explained below, this review compares EWF's concert performance in this Blu-ray disc with their performances in the 1980's, specifically their 1981 concert, "EWF Live In Concert" on DVD). To that extent, this review complements this website's official Blu-ray review, because the reviewer admits to not being a fan of EWF back in the day even though he was very familiar with Chicago. I was a big fan of EWF in the 1980's.

Comparing to the HD DVD

  • Excerpt: I have this one on HD DVD and I Netflixed the BD. Just got done watching it tonight and first some general statements and then some discs specifics. I really enjoy this disc and while a fan of both bands, in all honestly Earth Wind and Fire really outranked them on this occasion!! Song selection was strong with both bands and I really loved the concept of mixing the groups together. VIDEO: Honestly, I can't say it looks any different than my HD DVD outside of (maybe?

Great show, albeit not ideal

  • Excerpt: After much delay, this disc is finally released so; what do we have. Overall the concert is a great experience. I thought the direction was outstanding, with some great shot choices and timing. It is my understanding that the video was captured in 2004, which may explain why the occasional shot doesn't hold up to blu-ray full potential as to clarity.

My Take

  • Excerpt: Can't comment on this DVD, but I saw the concert on a HD Music station. I wish EW and F would release a version with just them. They were on fire that night. Chicago, bless their hearts, couldn't hold a candle. I like both bands, so I'm not being biased. It was fun when both bands were on stage together, though. Any sound mixing problems with the disc are the fault of the sound engineer and final studio mixing producer.
