Franco De Vita
Runtime: 1 hr 57 minTo be a successful artist in the music world means more than recording numerous albums, filling up stadiums and conquering radio. What it really means is to make art, to touch the hearts of millions of people, and to create music that transcends time. Precisely what Franco de Vita has achieved in his almost three-decade career. His hallmark is that of the poet who weaves songs with the filaments of his imagination and his talent for words. That’s how to best describe this singer and songwriter, born in Venezuela of Italian parents, and who has made Spain his home for many years. His position is secured both with the public that has known him from his early days as a rocker and who has seen him flourish in many other facets, as well as with the singers for whom he has written hits, from Ricky Martin to Chayanne. The truth is, simply, that Franco does not rest on his laurels. And that’s why this year, the singer/songwriter who has captivated generations with songs such as No Basta, Cálido y frío, Fuera de este mundo, Louis, and Ay Dios, is back with a musical production recorded entirely live at the Comtel studios in North Miami on January 20. Franco de Vita en Primera Fila is the pinnacle of a career. “I have been dreaming about this for many years and, well, finally, we’ve made the album,” says an enthusiastic Franco. “The idea behind this project comes after having presented three shows at the Centro de Bellas Artes of Puerto Rico (the island is one of his most important markets) a while back. But then, in the end, what we thought of doing did not happen. So, more records came along, more songs, more hits, thank God, and now, with Sony, it finally takes place. And here we are.” Under the direction of Diego Álvarez, of Plataforma TV; the production of Vicente Solís; and the collaboration of 15 musicians, Franco unleashed his innate talent in front of some 250 people. “Since I have never shown something that I am not, in this project I cannot do anything else but to continue showing who I am,” says Franco. “For me, what really matters is the musical part. Here, we try to present those same hits but in a different way. Songs have their own personalities, thus, they themselves tell you ‘hey, I am not feeling well in this genre. Get me out of here.’ We have a few people, a few musicians. It is another way of transmitting, of projecting, a song.” “It is imperative that we include the songs that were hits. And it has been mighty difficult because, which song do you take out? How many do we put in?”, “We had to limit ourselves to 20, including new songs.” Those new songs featured are Tan sólo tú, the first single, a duet with Mexican rock star Alejandra Guzmán, and Mira más allá. Although the duet begins as a tranquil ballad, it develops into a musical explosion perfect for the voice of the queen of rock. Meanwhile, the other “is a very particular song, like a return to those first days performing with groups, gathering in a room four or five musicians to do the track. It’s a bit reminiscent of the 70s and 80s.” Other duets included are Te veo venir soledad, with Puerto Rican salsa master Gilberto Santa Rosa; No se olvida, performed with Argentine singer Soledad; Si quieres decir adiós, with a promising new talent: Costa Rican American Debi Nova; and what is perhaps the biggest surprise in the album, his new version of Si la ves, for which he reunited his original colleagues, the Sin Bandera duo (Leonel García and Noel Schajris), dissolved in 2007. “I have brought them back together,” says the artist with a laugh. “Really, there have been a lot of people involved and, to tell the truth, I am super excited. It is a very strong point in the album, a song that I have performed with many new talents.” Franco de Vita en Primera Fila highlights once more his quality as a composer and an artist in this exclusive live production.
Viña del Mar
Runtime: 1 hr 5 minThe famous Mexican romantic singer sings some of his classics as "Por amarte así", "Mivid sin tu amor" or "Volver a amar" in this show recorded in Chile on February 2004.
Runtime: 50 minIn an intimate live performance, Kinky joins forces with MTV for their first-ever 'Unplugged' album, featuring a superstar line-up of guests and new versions of their classic hits. Hosted by Diego Luna, the Unplugged album features collaborations with an international crew of stars including Carla Morrison, La Mala Rodríguez, Banda Los Recoditos, Voz de Mando and Beto Zapata (Grupo Pesado). The first single, “A Donde Van Los Muertos?” featuring Carla Morrison debuted #1 upon its release in Mexico. Kinky originally formed in the musically diverse and culturally rich scene of Monterrey, Mexico. More than 10 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the LAMC, where they ended up winning the conference's prestigious "LAMC Discovery Contest." The band has received multiple Latin Grammy nominations for their unique and innovative blend of electronic and alternative rock and has been established as a global touring band. Kinky's self-titled debut album received rave reviews from both international and national press. The album featured massive hit songs and much-synched classics such as "Mas" and "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor.” Kinky’s music has been featured in numerous soundtracks (Man on Fire, Thirteen), TV shows (Gossip Girl, Dexter, Weeds, NCIS, Alias), TV commercials (Motorola, Taco Bell, Smirnoff Ice, Nissan, Honda), and video games like EA Sports' FIFA and Tiger Woods' PGA Tour. Their popular live shows have allowed the band to constantly tour around the world, performing at festivals such as Coachella, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands and many more. “Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” – The New York Times

The Last Concert: Live From The Astrodome
Runtime: 54 minRecorded live on February 26, 1995. All tracks have been digitally remastered. Selena Quintanilla, the late queen of Tejano music, is caught here in her final performance in Houston, Texas. More a cultural than a solely musical phenomenon, Selena provided American Latinos and Latinas with a bona fide pop star, and unfortunately their first bona fide pop casualty. Here she works her magic on a medley of '70s Anglo disco classics before slipping into more familiar Tejano territory with her biggest hit, "Amor Prohibido" and a slew of crowd-pleasing classics. Her band is tight and adept (her brother plays bass); the crowd goes predictably wild at every opportunity. As a document of Selena's undeniable live appeal, LIVE THE LAST CONCERT is invaluable, and essential for all true Selena fans.
