Liam Lawson In Concert


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C+     Concert: B-



From Kilkenny, Ireland, vocalist Liam Lawson delivers a concert taped in 2005 of some of his most liked music in an already long and established career in the Tradition Irish Folk Music genre.  Liam Lawson In Concert runs about an hour and offers ten songs in which he is accompanied by a fine band and backing vocalists.  He introduces each in English and the result of the performances overall make this one of the best DVDs in its genre to date.  That says something since this is a larger market than you might think.


The 1.33 X 1 image is not bad, shot on tape, likely the analog PAL format.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has some surrounds, but it does not offer a better playback in Pro Logic, though you can experiment depending on what kind of receiver features you have for those with home theaters.  Extras include a making-of segment about 13 minutes long on his new (ninth) album Another World, brief interview with Lawson about 6 minutes long and three bonus music performances.
