A new Amy Winehouse DVD?
Posted 03 September 2011 - 06:06 PM
I stumbled across a DVD that was released the 15th of August.
The cover looks really nice!
It looks like the company that released the DVD is PGM (A scandinavian distribution company of some kind)
Has anyone else seen this DVD?
I really want to order it, I'm just affraid the quality is going to be crap.
Would be lovely to have another Amy DVD to watch over and over.
Here's a link:
Here's a picture of the cover:

The astonishing Amy Winehouse - captured in concert in France at the exact moment of her international `Back to Black' breakout. Fronting a rocking yet suave and sophisticated ten-piece jazz and classic-r&b band - complete with backup singing and dancing -- Winehouse slinks and undulates around the stage, bringing all of her utterly original presence and sultry, soulful vocals to bear on a set of mainly original songs. And those songs are hits: `Back To Black,' `Rehab,' `You Know I'm No Good,' `Tears Dry On Their Own,' and many others were making Winehouse a star even as she was on the tour captured here. Here she fully inhabits each of those hits, making them fodder for powerfully emotional vocal performance. And she covers Sam Cooke and Toots & The Maytals too.
Amy Winehouse: Vocals Frank Tontoh: Drums Dale Davis: Bass Sam Beste: Keyboards Robin Banerjee: Guitar Hawi Gondwe: Guitar Henry Collins: Trumpet Francis Damuel Walden: Baritone saxophone James Hunt: Saxophone Zalon Thompson: Backing vocals Derek Green: Backing vocals June 29, 2007, Belfort, France NTSC - All Regions - DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1 + Dolby Digital 2.0 - Approx. 53 mins

It'll be released on the 20th of September.
There's a short description on amazon.de :
It says there'll be unreleased archive recordings on the DVD.
Sounds interesting to me.

This review is from: Amy Winehouse: In Concert 2007 (DVD)
Having watched and loved Amy Winehouse's 2007 concert countless times on the "I Told You I Was Trouble" concert dvd, I was very curious to view this set from France when I heard that it was being released. Here she is even better, in my estimation, probably because she was steadier and more sober
Having watched and loved Amy Winehouse's 2007 concert countless times on the "I Told You I Was Trouble" concert dvd, I was very curious to view this set from France when I heard that it was being released. Here she is even better, in my estimation, probably because she was steadier and more sober during this performance. She seems more at ease, more confident, and a bit more on her game. Don't get me wrong, I love the other concert dvd, but in hindsight it is now more difficult and painful to watch, knowing what was to come, and seeing the beginning of her deterioration. She really gives a wonderful performance in this concert, most likely due to the fact that she doesn't seem to need imbibing to get through her performance.
I think, from fragments I've seen of her in the studio, and in interviews on the first concert dvd, that Amy was basically a very insecure person, and her brashness and impetuousness was a smoke screen to hide behind. It probably helped her to relax--to a point, obviously--to have a drink during her performances. Her take no prisoners attitude was one of the things that endeared her to me--the vulnerability, cloaked in swagger and dagger, was a really interesting juxtaposition to witness, especially when she opened her mouth and that voice came out--pulling her soul out as it came, without any varnish. She was one of a kind. She was real. In the plastic world of celebrity, she was such a breath of fresh air, in my opinion. This dvd is a treasure for anyone who misses this lost soul. She revived my passion for music back in 2007 when "Back To Black" was released, and it is astonishing to think that she made such an indelible mark on the music world with just two albums worth of material. She was one of the greats.
