I bought this from Amazon after loving the "Our Version of Events" bonus CD.

TBH I planned to purchase this then sell it on Ebay to re-coup my money (times are hard!) BUT I am firmly holding on to this.

The whole performance is amazing. It really is. Emeli has obviously chosen some of the best musicians and backing singers in the world and the quality of the sound is amazing, both on the DVD and CD. Crystal clear vocals and totally balanced orchestrations.

Even as a bloke I found myself in tears at some of the performance and if you don't shed a tear at her live performance of "Suitcase" you need to follow the yellow brick road as you have no heart ;-)

Just LOVE the backing vocals (all three singers are amazingly talented) on all of this, really adds so much to the tracks. "Daddy" makes your hair stand on end at the beginning and believe me, it just gets even better as the concert progresses.

Emeli comes across as not only beautiful in her appearance but also in her heart and it is so refreshing in this world as it is now.

Can't wait for her to tour again as I'll be queuing at the door or online to get a ticket.

This CD/DVD combo is worth more than 5 stars. The sound is excellent for both CD & DVD.The vocals are beautiful, the band is stunning, the guests Prof Green & Labyrith adds more excitement to the applauds of a fully packed Royal Albert Hall.I just love all the songs mainly because of the beautiful voice of Emile Sande and the meaningful lyrics with all the tracks. The song "read all about it " has become a national anthem all over the world even in most tv commecials, movies, let alone talent search new musicians e.g.X Factor and Idols etc. The track "river" was an unexpected find for me, i like its poetrical lyrics ....I be your river I will do the running for you...I will move mountains for you....i will keep you floating......until you find the sea...wow!!! this great. The song "beaneath your beautiful" is a very coy naughty beautiful song. The "suitcase" song is stunning & sad at the same time when you imagine things that way.The spiritual song "I wish I knew how it feels to be free" is a very sublime rendition when I think how Nina Simone used to do it with her baritonial feminine voice and but then Emile sings it like an angel with a sweet voice. The song "next to me"has become such a big success for Emile & it was the one which she sang to close the show to a rupt standing ovation that lasted for a long time. All in all a MUST for all music fans.Thank you Amazon for selling this beautiful CD.

There was minimal information about the video/audio information on the back cover.

VIDEO:

The set features the headline concert filmed at London's Royal Albert Hall on 11 November 2012. To my pleasant surprise, the video was in 2.40:1 (rare for concert, usually 1.78:1). What a big difference here, when the entire picture fills up my 12 foot wide screen (usually anamorphic lens). This MPEG-4 AVC 1080i transfer is top-notched. There are lots of details, including every strand on Emeli’s hair. You can also count the number of eyelashes on closeups. You can also read the word tattoo on her chest, plus the beautiful picture tattoo on her right forearm. There was also good contrast. Skin tone was spot-on. The blacks were inky, like Emeli’s shoes. Colour was good, especially the red jacket that Emeli wore during the 2nd half of the concert. Top-notched video. (5/5)

AUDIO:

My heart sank when I read on the back cover that the audio was Dolby Digital (that reminded me of the recent disastrous Rihanna concert). To my second pleasant surprise, the menu listed DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio, which I chose. No Dolby Digital. The sound is even more outstanding than the video. Emeli Sande’s pure voice simply soared. All the different instruments are clearly defined, including a string section, including violin, viola & cello, a percussion section, piano & organ, guitars and drums. Each instrument sounds clean, forming a great back-up to Emeli’s singing…never overwhelming. The bass guitar by James Beatt was outstanding. Jonathan Tuitt played a thunderous drums, that gave me two subwoofers a great workout. The backup singers are also outstanding. The sound is simply heavenly.

Millions (billions?) saw her play live at the Olympics opening and closing ceremonies, and perhaps like me came away impressed.

Thanks to the wonders of Spotify, I checked out his new live album, and I can tell you that this is SO much better. If you have Spotify (or Napster or whatever) check it out before buying, but believe me if you kinda liked what you've seen so far, just buy it on spec - I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

Kudos to the band too, who are extremely tight and the whole concert is beautifully paced. I just hope I can avoid the temptation to play this to death, as it is really something special.

I really enjoyed the DVD and what a great package for a tenner or so. She is clearly a big talent with a great voice and lovely clear vocals to boot.
Emili follows other gifted artists from Sunderland in Alan Price, Dave Stewart and Brian Ferry.
A very original style, very soulful, with a hint of gospel / choir for sure and some numbers reminded me of the old soul & ‘Tamla Motown’ of years gone by?
It’s brilliant to see such accomplished artists, when the industry is full of fakes, who can’t sing, can’t write or even mime properly! She really is the real deal.
I think I just prefer Adele’s voice and songs a little more, as they are a bit more ‘punchy’ but there’s only a neck ( horse racing term – close finish) in it. Definitely more to come here.
