5.0 out of 5 stars The Lioness Roars!
At first, I was tentative that this would be yet another cash-in on a deceased legend. But no, this boxset is superb!

The DVDs are heartbreaking to watch - the shy, gamine, pretty girl evolves into a sweary, grossly-tatooed, over made-up world-weary crooner with a ridiculous beehive. But what a voice! What feeling! The bonus ball for me was the CD - it blows...

2.0 out of 5 stars amazing music but poor product quality
It was a real loss to the world of music when Amy died so any new recordings (especially official releases are to be welcomed). Generally I have had good luck with BBC related releases but the product quality on this expensive package is exceptionally poor. Straight out of the box, 2 of the 3 DVD discs have digital flaws in places (the picture deconstructs), I don't know...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lioness Roars!, 30 Dec 2012

At first, I was tentative that this would be yet another cash-in on a deceased legend. But no, this boxset is superb!

The DVDs are heartbreaking to watch - the shy, gamine, pretty girl evolves into a sweary, grossly-tatooed, over made-up world-weary crooner with a ridiculous beehive. But what a voice! What feeling! The bonus ball for me was the CD - it blows "Lioness" into the water! Amy was the spiritual (and temporal) heir(ess) of Sarah Vaughan and Bessie Smith. And the "Arena" DVD is so wonderfully sad - Amy is so humble, apologises for being late(!), discusses her plans for Christmas and expouses on her relatively recent passion for jazz, all thanks to her brother playing Ray Charles in the next bedroom!

And thankfully, no distracting Mitch, Mark Ronson or assorted "partners" are filmed - just Amy and her fabulous musicians. A treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars a review by an owner in Southern California..., 30 Nov 2012

As much as Amy was a mess of a person she was an amazing artist. I'm a middle aged man who doesn't really enjoy or get into much current music but she was different. I am so happy I sent to the UK for this set. Over here we got the CD and the Dingle DVD which was great but the extra concert DVD and the Jools Holland tribute DVD were big bonuses and all will be watched over and over. This is timeless music by a timeless artist. I can recommend this collection without reservation to any fan. For non fans curious I would not start here.... but even that wouldn't be bad. A lot of music and just an exceptional talent.

How can you pay tribute the best way?
Just put together complete concert never before released, add one of the best live performances on BBC shows, add audio CD with rare live performances and unreleased tracks, complete it with unique package with lots of photos and additional information...
And you'll find it all in BBC tribute to one of the greatest artist of all time - Amy Winehouse...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 24 Mar 2013

This review is from: At The BBC (Audio CD)
Well produced album, lovely sound makes you feel like you your there!
DVD "s good quality just be prepared that Amy starts to get a bit tipsy towards the end and does make you feel bit uncomfortable towards the end, the day she came to dingle is just Amy at her best, just lovely.All real fans of Amy"s music will love this as she just was such a good musician/lyricist . A joy to own

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy Winehouse...what more needs to be said?, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At The BBC (Audio CD)
If you're an Amy Winehouse fan, this is a wonderful DVD/CD set to have. Amy was human; her music was something else ...... (any word(s) used wouldn't do her music justice). I along with many others are saddened knowing that we will never hear new songs, but that doesn't mean we can't treasure and be grateful for what she left behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At The BBC (Audio CD)
Finally got to watch the DVDs. I have seen most of the material on TV, but the transfers are superb, especially from the BBC HD material. Better than some Blu-rays I have seen.
As others have said, it is sad to see the change from the early Amy, who was a really pretty girl, to the tattooed and beehived sight she became. The Dingle performance and interview showed she had not changed so much at that time.

2.0 out of 5 stars amazing music but poor product quality, 9 Jan 2014

This review is from: At The BBC (Audio CD)
It was a real loss to the world of music when Amy died so any new recordings (especially official releases are to be welcomed). Generally I have had good luck with BBC related releases but the product quality on this expensive package is exceptionally poor. Straight out of the box, 2 of the 3 DVD discs have digital flaws in places (the picture deconstructs), I don't know enough about the manufacture of DVD discs to know if this is a problem specific to my discs or would affect all purchases. Given the price and the quality of the packaging, it would be have been nice if the actual discs were viewable. As for the music, there are some real gems here (I am a fan of live music) even though there are a limited number of songs. Amy's voice is generally exquisite but her visible discomfort in some of the later performances is disturbing at times.

She was a great artist that never lived to her real potential which makes the work of those who do that much more special.
