Naturally 7 came into being in 1999 in their home city of New York. Seeking to revolutionize the a cappella music genre, the seven vocalists not only created beautiful harmonies, but broke new ground by creating the rhythm tracks (including guitar, drum, bass, and horn sounds) with their voices alone. Calling their new approach to instrument-free music "vocal play," the band wowed audiences all over the States, leaving concert-goers in disbelief.
Filmed in high definition on 17 July 1999 at Pine Knob Amphitheatre in Detroit, Michigan, “Live In Detroit” captures a classic Peter Frampton performance that has become well established as a fan’s favourite. The show features tracks from across Frampton’s extensive and highly successful career. Originally released in 2000 it is now being reissued on DVD and made available on Blu-ray for the first time.
This live release has quite a complicated history: in 1979, Supertramp toured the world in support of their mega-selling album Breakfast in America. They played shows on four consecutive nights in Paris and recorded these performances on tape and on 16mm, and while some of the audio material was later released on their 1980 live album Paris, the video disappeared…
Recorded at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California in 1982, this concert was the last date on the Doobie Brothers' "Farewell Tour." It was an emotional night and would be their last gig for 5 years. The band played a set containing all their best loved hits from across their career and were joined by founding member Tom Johnston for the last two tracks, with former members John Hartman (also from the original line-up), Tiran Porter and Michael Hossack coming on stage for the celebratory finale of "Listen To The Music." The band are in fantastic form and rise to the occasion magnificently, they can rarely have delivered a better performance throughout their distinguished career. The DVD features five bonus songs cut from the original version of the concert's film.
