Acústico MTV: Gal Costa #

Released 11/28/2001

Description: Acústico MTV spans Gal Costa's career very thoroughly. What is very various here is the presentation of the material. Backed up by a lush orchestra (the Petrobrás Pró Música Orchestra), some of Gal's old hits have a pretty fresh sound. Even some of her early songs, such as "Baby" and "Não Identificado," are more subdued. As a whole, the CD does present a more mature and safe performer. As added bonuses, Gal invites a several guests to sing with her. Having introduced Luiz Melodia to Brazil, Gal brings him back in "Pérola Negra," one nice moment in the CD. Continuing the list of guests, Gal then introduces a fresh name in 1997: Zeca Baleiro. Their duet in "A Flor da Pele" is hauntingly pretty and the most pretty track in Acústico MTV. Targeting the younger MTV crowd, two names from Brazilian rock lend their voices in two extra duets.

Description: During the first half of 2002, Kylie Minogue toured Europe and Australia. This DVD captures it. Live In Manchester is a nice concert that explores Kylie's musical catalog rather well from her days as a manufactured pop tart princess to her actual status as icon and electro-pop diva. The concert occurs in seven various acts meant to display Kylie in some of the various manifestaions she has adopted throughout her career. Cultural references are everywhere in this concert. There's a nod to Keith Haring, and many others from Staney Kubrick, burlesque, and sci-fi flicks. It's all difficult to catch, but done very well.

The tour received the "Most Constructive Scene Production" at the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards.

Lulu Santos - MTV ao Vivo #

Released 3/24/2004

Description: There are only a several artists who are able to receive away with performing the same songs over and over again. One of the greatest examples might be The Rolling Stones. Brazil also has a several of those chosen musicians. Like Lulu Santos. Not long after his MTV Acústico project, in which he performed his major hits in the recommended acoustic setting, he's back again with other MTV live recorded album. This time with his regular tour band, and again performing some of his most successful songs. A strange phenomenon is that the acoustic hit collection sold 745,000 copies, while in no time this MTV Ao Vivo album already sold the 60,000 copies important to obtain a gold album. Strange, because the studio album in between, the very nice piece of work named Bugalu (2003), did not succeed the 51,000 figure (so far). It seems folks can't receive enough of listening to the songs they grew up with!

Planet Hemp: MTV ao Vivo #

Released 1/1/1980

Description: A face mais casca-grossa do Planet Hemp está sob os refletores neste MTV Ao Vivo, CD gravado em maio para o homônimo projeto da Melody Tv que já rendeu álbuns do Ira! e Raimundos. Com uma formação compacta - D2 e BNegão (cantores), Rafael (guitarra), Formigão (baixo) e Pedrinho (bateria) - que dispensou DJ, teclados e vozes de apoio, o PH soltou um vigoroso disco de rock, no qual a única concessão ao hip hop são os vocais rappeados. Esse Planet minimal trocou as malandragens sonoras variadas que veio colecionando em seus álbuns de estúdio (em especial no último, o excelente A Invasão do Sagaz Homem Fumaça) pela energia bruta. Mais ou menos como a Justiça e seus argumentos para censurar os shows do grupo: simplista, mas muito eficaz.

La Fille du Régiment Reviews:

I love the opera and I love Joan Sutherland. This production was fun, but it should have been even better. My main trouble was not with the production itself but with the DVD, the presentation doesn't do this production justice and the picture quality is often blurry. At least the sound was decent. I can't fault the music, which is amazing, or the nice characters and involving story. The costumes and sets are nice enough, and the orchestra and conducting are ellegant and precise. Joan Sutherland herself is past prime, with some flat notes and some notes that are omitted or shortened, however her colouratura still dazzles and her comic timing is superb. Of the helping cast, greatest of all is Heather Begg, who is very amusing and appropriately stuffy. And Anson Austin sings and acts convincingly, even making it through the fun-to- hear-but-nightmare-to-sing "aria with nine high Cs" with several major glitches. Gregory Yurisich is fun but not crusty enough. All in all, fun but not as nice as it should have been. 8/10 Bethany Cox


I am so sorry that they made this video. I know that opera asks us to suspend our disbelief, but in this production of The Daughter of the Regiment, one of Dame Joan's nice roles, the producers are just asking a bit too much. It is not only because she looks much older than most of the boys in the regiment who together create up her "collective father", it is also in her movements which are clearly those of a senior person and not a young girl's. She has been named the Grandmother of the Regiment in this role in her soon years. Rather cruel, but although she might have got away with it on scene (I saw her in this role at the Sydney Opera House, and indeed I was very satisfied to suspend any disbelief!) why submit a nice artist to such ridicule with telecast closeups of each ungirlish gesture? In the same year (1986) they also telecast her best role ever, Lucia di Lammemoor. But this time the sensitive director for tv made sure there were no closeups which would cruelly present her age, her lovely wig and costumes seemed so convincing from a distance. Also in this role she stayed relatively still until the Angry Scene, for which she still at that late stage, clearly commanded the important vocal and acting skills to profoundly transport us at home watching on the tiny box. The helping cast in "The Daughter.." are all passable, with a possibly a tad too much over-the-top acting from Gregory Yurisich and Heather Begg. It has often been regretted that Joan Sutherland did not have her earlier performances when she was in her glorious prime, committed to film. While many of us are grateful to have any record at all of some of her nice roles eg Norma, Lucia and a handful of others, The Daughter only gives a shadow of an impression of the nice comedic singing actress she should be. I adored her in her last, non-singing role in Dad and Dave: On Our Selection - that this peerless symbol of the heights Australian artists have everytime been able to achieve, could select to end her "film" career with a comic role so far removed from everything she stood for in the arts, makes one regret that she has not made other non-singing film.
