Not sure how many have seen this yet but personally I like these 3 the best (in no particular order)
"Stand Back" by Susan & Derek (1st saw Derek sit in & play this song at age 13 with ABB) Susans got a nice take on it.
"One Way Out" by John Hiatt (his voice sounds a lot like Long John Baldry) and
"Win,Lose or Draw" by Eric Church.This country guy does what I think is a particularly energetic,emotional performance of this revealing song.I remember it was another tumultuous time in ABB's history & watch Chuck Leavell glancing over at Eric throughout the song.I'm sure Chuck remembers this time all too well too.
Its interesting to see how other musicians from different genres 'interpret' these classic songs.

Can't really pick just three but here are three that I'm sure I will never tire of:

Please Call Home, Sam Moore - Tremendous performance and a lot has been said, but I think another aspect that is really cool, says a lot and is especially nice that they focused on this in the DVD, is Chuck Leavell "worshipping" Sam with the "I'm not worthy" bows as Sam leaves the stage. Great performance.

Let This Be A Lesson To Ya, Dr. John - This is another great performance and I love the full-band treatment; everyone gets in on it: Audley, Jack, Dr. John's vocals and piano, the sisters and the horns. Love the horns. Tight performance and great tune.

These Days, Gregg and Jackson Brown - This was probably my favorite Gregg moment from this show. It really showcases just how good a singer Gregg is. Beautiful, for all the reasons you would imagine.

I hate to rock the boat or disagree with so many. I really do.

But Sam Moore - and I LOVE Sam More - was obviously singing while reading from a teleprompter. I thought so before I actually saw the teleprompter. I didn't think his inflection and tone were where they should be, so I suspected this. When the camera crane swung around, sure enough, the teleprompter was visible. He had some great moments, but for me it was like watching a great singer at karaoke night.

Flame on!

Haha! Let me just get this match lit ...

I admit I am biased because I was in the house for this and that is a much difference experience than CD or DVD no matter how good your sound system is. What I fear people will miss about Sam Moore's performance is that while his singing may not have been technically perfect and his range may not be olympic, it is the whole performance what made this special. One thing the DVD missed but you can see in BigDaveOnnBass's video (link below) is the whole house come to it's feet during the climax. Also not seen on the DVD are all the lighters I saw raised after he finished. (Unlucky with camera placement/lighting I'm guessing.) Curse Simon Cowell forever for RUINING this phrase, but there is no other way to say it: this isn't just singing, its the x-factor of the guy's performance. I think you really have to watch this on DVD to full appreciate it and it doesn't hurt to include BigDave's video either...in fact, they should add Dave's video as bonus material on the BlueRay.

As far as the teleprompters go:
1) I have been able to see a few more performances on DVD now (not many) but I did notice Dr John had the lyrics in front of him and I am betting others did too. I don't really have a problem with it given the realities of time available to rehearse and the fact that, I am sure, a lot of expense went into producing this for a recording. Why not play it safe right?
2) Almost everyone sounded good and that is the most important thing. Sounds like some (Brantly Gilbert;still haven't seen it) stage performances were hindered, but so be it - see #1. Also, while the teleprompter was there, I really haven't noticed him looking at it much. Certainly hasn't taken away from the goosebumps I get watching or listening to this.
3) When I am Sam Moore's age I will be happy if I remember not to sh*t in my pants much less lay down a performance like that at the FOX for a DVD/CD. I would be lying if I said Sam's age and delicate appearance didn't play a part in what made this special but then again, that is what made it all the more inspiring. No issue with Sam having a net.

A lot of the artists were using the teleprompter. Do you really think an 85 year old soul legend is going to remember all of the lyrics to an obscure Allman Brothers song that even Gregg probably needs a cheat sheet for? I heard the album before I saw the video, and hearing it, you would never think he did anything other than make "Please Call Home" a soul ballad. His energy and enthusiasm was the first great number of the evening.

1. Ain't Waistin' Time No More
2. Win, Lose or Draw
3. Can't Lose What You Never Had

First two because Jack gets to solo serious and Eric Church sings the songs like this is big time. I believe "CLWYNH" came off better than planned and everyone got a kick out of it. I've watched the AXS TV version twice and thought they did a great job of producing and editing.

I'm a HUGE Sam Moore fan myself and while I did really love to hear him sing this, I was disappointed at the above as well. Not so much for using the tele-prompter. Hell, I can't even remember my own lyrics myself, but just overall, his phrasing made it seem like he barely knew the song. (Yes, I expect him to re-phrase the song and put in certain changes and inflictions... in fact that's part of what I would love about his interpretation). HOWEVER, there is a melody to that song that needs to SOMEWHAT be there and I'm not sure he was ever very close to it... I felt like he was winging it. Can he do that? Yes, apparently, he can! But I thought it could have been more effective if he showed the love and respect for a great song that it is...

But having said that, I still loved it and was impressed with how great he was. So I'm not knocking Sam as much as I am supporting Rusty's post.

I was more annoyed with Vince Gill's take at "Multi-Colored Lady" because I thought too much of the melody was lost and that he was 'winging' it too much. I think I also expected it to be better.

In general I loved the show though... The band was fantastic. Of course, anyone who knows me knows that anything with Jack Pearson or Chuck Leavell is probably going to have me hooked... and to have them both so prominent was like heaven! Jack just absolutely NAILED it the whole night.

I have to disagree with some of the people here though, musically I loved "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" & "Win, Lose or Draw", but I thought Eric Church was the wrong voice for the songs. Not that he's a bad singer in ANY way. In fact he did them well for him, but I thought those songs (as well as some others) really needed a great full soulful r&b type voice.

"Queen of Hearts" really blew me away. A complete surprise. I love that song.

yeh,the more I listen to it Sam Moore was great (teleprompter threw me too but Chuck L's using music sheets too) & the fact he's like 80 just adds to it..u go man! For some reason I also get this sneaky 'suspician' watching,that Greg has decided to ask Chuck L (watch on 'Win Lose...') back into ABB? Don't know why I thought that...but his comments,that he's only lookin to replace Derek just adds to it! Maybe cause Chuck looks like he's havin so much fun & Interested).Or maybe Jack P returns...?


{ actually the whole DVD seems like an "audition" for the new members of ABB,come to think }

After seeing the DVD, I think I have to strike Win, Lose or Draw due to the ridiculousness of the performer. I'll sub Multi-colored Lady. I don't follow country music, but was really impressed by Vince Gill's guitar playing.

That being said, the show actually belonged to Jack Pearson and Chuck Leavell - tremendous talent and musicianship.

I agree, Chuck and Jack were outstanding on this show. Probably my favorite moment was Gregg and Jackson Browne singing "These Days". One of my all time fav songs by both artists but to see and hear them singing it together was a special moment
