James Blunt Back to Bedlam Live CD/DVD
If you don't understand what James Blunt is all about, you need to see him live. He's an amazing performer, and the Back To Bedlam concert I went to (in Baltimore, VA, in October 2006) just blew me away. At that time I didn't like JB because I thought 'You're Beautiful' was one of the most dire songs I'd ever heard, and as for 'Goodbye My Lover'...! Seeing him perform live completely altered my perception of him and his music. Power, passion, presence - what a performer! No flashing lights, no smoke and fireworks, no dancers, just JB and his band. Absolutely brilliant.
This CD/DVD gives an idea of what JB is like live, but (and it's only a small but) the controlled studio environment really doesn't start to capture the atmosphere and dynamism of a 'real' concert. Don't let that put you off though - this is an excellent production, and sufficiently different from the Back To Bedlam CD to be worth buying.
chasing time is fantastic and a must buy!
this cd is great and if you like the album back to bedlam this cd is for you, the live concert on the dvd is great and james blunt really is fantastic live, trust me, if you like james blunt or back to bedlam then you will love this. he is truelly fantastic live and this is really shown here on chasing time. to be honest this cd is almost as good seeign him live and i have been to one of his live shows and this is very close to the expericence, honeslty is 5 stars and brilliant.
I like James Blunt and the songs have the live quality (ie: clapping at the end of the song). It has two discs, one is DVD and two is live in Ireland. Includes you're beautiful, high, wisemen and goodbye my lover on both discs.
