Customer Review

on 17 September 2013
I should say from the outset that I have been a lover of Joni's music for more than 40 years. I saw her tour with Jackson Brown, later with Tom Scott's LA Express and a couple of times since then, including Wembley. Hers has been a career of continual growth and change; she always pushes boundaries, working with great musicians and seeming never to rest on her laurels, never being prepared to follow others by simply repeating a set format just to release another album. But what has been constant throughout her career has been her wonderful poetry.

The strength of this DVD is that its focus is squarely on her writing, how her work reflects both her experiences and the times she lives in. The biographical details are superb, the candid comments of friends and fellow musicians revealing and (other than David Crosby) not falling into the obsequious remarks often made in such reviews.The "pace" of the DVD is excellent giving equal coverage of all stages of her career with supporting footage of concerts that are hugely illustrative of her development over the years. It's a DVD to dip into or to watch through over and over again. It's a fitting tribute to and record of the wonderful career of a genuinely unique artist. For me,this ranks with The Last Waltz as a musical DVD every lover of quality music should own.
