In the late spring of 1972, after numerous invitations to reunite, the elusive Dion DiMucci finally agreed to perform – for the first time in 12 years – with the original members of the Belmonts in a one-off concert as part of a rock and roll revival show to be held at Madison Square Garden. The date was June 2, 1972. The arena was sold out and the atmosphere was electric. The legendary Bronx, New York-based vocal group had earned a reputation not only for topping the charts but for creating some of the most vital and exciting doo-wop music on the American scene. With songs such as “I Wonder Why,” "A Teenager In Love" and "Where or When," Dion and The Belmonts earned their place in the history books, while the group's pioneering role in the development of rock 'n' roll underscored their enduring accomplishments. For this magical night Billy Vera and his band would be the backing band. “It was like an earthquake. You could literally feel the stage shake.” - Billy Vera
Live at Madison Square Garden is a fifth concert video by American band Bon Jovi from the last North American part of their Lost Highway Tour. It was recorded on July 14 and July 15, 2008, at Madison Square Garden…
Sporting the cover of the CD/DVD set is a very strange looking Ian Anderson with a typically normally looking Martin Barre. Anderson looks like he is getting ready to do something perverted with his flute again. Glad to know 31 years on nothing much has changed in that respect. Live At Madison Square Garden (CD/DVD) is one of several live Jethro Tull DVD's that have become available over the last few years. I am glad that I didn't miss this one because it's a real gem. It contains a 93 minute concert recording in 5.1 DTS (96/24) surround sound (+Dolby Digital 5.1 & LPCM 2.0) and within all of that is 50 minutes of video footage from the groundbreaking (an often over used term in music but in this case true) of an international broadcast via satellite on October 9, 1978. The CD is a 78 minute edited stereo version of the concert. The only difference in tracks between the two is the "Bagpipe Intro" on the DVD and obviously the visual impact of a live Jethro Tull performance that is so strikingly brought to life again.
Looking at a career that had more artistic and commercial triumphs than most in the 20th century, one could be forgiven for thinking Elvis' run of four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden on June 9-11, 1972 was just another of these big events. But for Elvis, it wasn't. Of all the live concerts released by RCA during Elvis' lifetime, NONE carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June 1972. Featuring rare photos and memorabilia, this special 2CD Legacy Edition combines the multi-platinum evening show released as Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden in 1972 with the equally compelling afternoon concert issued in 1997 as An Afternoon In The Garden.
