Overview

Willie Nelson: Live in Amsterdam utilizes a full-frame format similar to many other concert DVD releases. While its picture is fairly basic and contains nothing spectacular, there are no defects or distractions during the feature. Shot on digital video, the production is clear and provides an easy, straightforward look at the concert. The presentation resembles a well-made home video, which adds to the intimacy of the show. Although pretty basic, this transfer provides a simple avenue for enjoying the music of Willie Nelson. There's nothing more frustrating than picking up a live DVD from a talented artist that lacks a digital audio track. That's why it's so refreshing to see the inclusion of both a 5.1-channel Dolby Digital transfer and a 5.1-channel DTS track on this disc. Both tracks present a lush, deep sound that carries the music right off the screen and into your living room. The DTS version gives a superior experience and allows for the recognition of each individual instrument within the sound field. Each transfer provides plenty of force and conveys the musical complexity in all its glory. This disc also contains a 2.0-channel Dolby Digital option that sounds fine but is missing the depth of its counterparts. This is a concert-only disc, with no extra features of any kind. The menus do contain a brief video segment from "On the Road Again," but the animation is fairly amateurish.

This is a whole (and long) concert with all the ''tubes'' (Crazy, Blue eyes crying in the rain, Roll in my sweet babie¿s arms, Seven spanish angels, Till I gain control again, Me and Paul...), ¿new standards¿, (Fast train to Georgia), and remarkable interpretations of Hank Williams (Jambalaya) or Ernest Tubbs. Willie¿s unique voice - with all of it¿s well known effects (at the very end of ''Allways one my mind'', Willie's voice falls abruptly of an octave, on profound D !...) - is more and more raucous, and amazingly more and more ¿not in the beat but over it¿... As usual, Willie allows himself to escape from the original melodies, so that songs may differ considerably from the original, like To all the girls I've loved before or Kristofferson¿s Take the ribbon from your to hair. Angel flying too to the ground is really sublime in this cassette, especially because of the accompaniment in the second part of the song. Instrumental parts of the songs, improvisations with Willie¿s legendary broken guitarre, are extremely moving. And, last but not least, Willie Nelson has once again a wonderful way to reflect each moment of the music on his face, and to share all kinds of signs of frienship with his public... All in all, Willie has never gone so far and has been better !!!
