"…In addition to the Super Audio CD (in 2+2+2-SACD multichannel format) the edition contains a DVD video with a concert version of op. 135 and an exciting conversation between Georg Albrecht Eckle and Peter Gülke. Here more questions about composer, works, and date of composition are answered in inimitable fashion than one would have ever dared to ask. What a rich and vast find for every classical fan!"
Originally released as a home video in 2004, David Bowie's A Reality Tour saw a two-CD audio release slated for January 2010, with three previously unreleased bonus tracks – "Fall Dogs Bombs the Moon," "Breaking Glass," "China Girl" – adding value for those hardcore fans who already own this concert as a DVD. In either the video or audio incarnation, this show, from November 2003 in Dublin, Ireland, is an entertaining and open-hearted set, finding Bowie running through a generous selection of oldies – both hits and album tracks, including songs written by Bowie, like "All the Young Dudes" and "Sister Midnight" – and new songs that hold up well next to the classics.
What a joy it is to watch Peter Cincotti and his band on this great DVD "Live in New York"! Peter breathes new life into the songs from both his debut album as well as his most recent release, "On The Moon" which is included with the DVD. You can hear the Ray Charles influence on "The Girl I Knew". So much so that I was certain it was one of "The Genius"'s songs! What a pleasant surprise to learn that the song was written by Peter himself! The performances are nothing short of excellent. I guarantee, "A Night in Tunisia" will leave you speechless! In this world of lip sync and lackluster deliveries of songs, Peter Cincotti is like a fine glass of Cabernet after far too many years of grape juice. And like Caberbet, he will contiue to grow better with time.
