5.0 out of 5 stars WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW !, 23 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Live At Montreux 2005 [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
*THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE STANDARD VERSION & NOT THE BLUE RAY VERSION*
WOW!
At last a live DVD of Patti & her band that is of amazing PROPER quality production!
The sound is absolutely beautiful - RICH DEEP BASS (if you have decent speakers of course) and crisp top end too.
The picture is crystal clear and rock-steady (no shaky hand cams here) the lighting / colour is fantastic too.

In fact I don't think I've ever seen such all round quality for a live gig DVD! (And that is saying something!)

THE MUSIC: Patti is on form, in tune and really 'up-for-it' and reminded me of when I saw them perform in Bath earlier this year. The playing is so tight it's sublime - you can tell they've been playing together for many years!
Tom Verlaine is guesting on lead/bass/rhythm guitar and he's just so good at adding some great licks and you can see both him & the BRILLIANT Lenny Kaye are absolutely loving playing off each other.

My highlight has to be 'Southern Cross' with Patti on acoustic guitar & '25th Floor' with her on leccy guitar - Those tunes totally rock! Just wish they could go on even longer - such a great groove - but then there's always the 'repeat' button!

If you even vaguely like The Patti Smith Group - go get this - you''ll love it!
