Audience Reviews for Living Legends of Rock & Roll - Live from Itchypoo Park
Don't want to burst RT hyped synopsis, but this is the worst venue* in the world. All we see are a bunch of lawn chairs, bare spots during the day and middle aged or worse fans. As for the stage performances, they are pretty good and faithful to the original songs. Styx puts on quite a show. Many of the band members throughout this concert are obviously original. They are grey headed grandfathers of rock, but they can still achieve a sound comparable to their younger days. John Kay and Steppenwolf is as lean a guy as ever and puts on a crowd pleasing show. Starship puts on quite a performance with lead vocalist Mickey Thomas. One hit wonder Iron Butterfly has a finely performed, original sound In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (In the Garden of Eden). Obviously someone had way to many drinks when they wrote this one. "Get Ready" by Rare Earth is suprisingly still good and the band does a faithful rendition of it. Could be the oldest drummer at the concert. "Sailing", by Christopher Cross, is a smooth tune that will bring back memories of easy rock. Performed by Christopher and group very well. But the highlight of the mult-day concert was Grand Funk Railroad with Mark Farmer. Singing "I'm Your Captain" as good as it ever sounded. Starting the concert with Styx's "Too Much Time on My Hands" and ending with Starship's "We Built this City", this is one whale of a concert if only handicapped by the gray hair. By Image Entertainment, again a favorite of mine for shooting these concerts in excellent fashion, I can only find fault with the daytime performances as nearly no one was present in the audience. Night time was much better, but still a hillbilly crowd. Copyrighted in 2000 by Sunrise Television Inc., a live outdoor concert, huge stage, great sound. DTS surround, Dolby digital english 5.1, Dolby digital stereo, color, 85 minutes. Filmed in widescreen. 15 songs, 9 bands from the sixties and after, live performance song list in order of performance : Too Much Time on My Hands (Styx) Fooling Myself (Styx) I'm Your Captain (Grand Funk Railroad) I'm Getting Closer to My Home (Grand Funk Railroad) In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (Iron Butterfly) Magic Carpet Ride (John Kay and Steppenwolf) Born to be Wild (John Kay and Steppenwolf) Love and Affection (The Nelsons) Get Ready (Rare Earth) You Are the Woman (that I've always dreamed of) Firefall Sailing (Christopher Cross) Arthur's Theme (The Best that You can do) Christopher Cross Somebody to Love (Starship featuring Mickey Thomas) Fooled Around and Fell in Love (Starship featuring Mickey) We Built this City (on rock n roll) Starship and Mickey) If you don't mind the venue or the age of these performers, the poorly attended day performances or the age of the songs... this one is for you. A wonderfully performed, filmed and recorded concert, if hard on the eyes concert. Many of us have never seen these groups live, so nows your chance to have them on dvd. * In this case, the music and everything was reflected in the rating. Big plus for Image Entertainment doing the work on this one. Big minus for the concert location.
