Cyndi Lauper

Year: 2004

Runtime: 00:54:59

Cyndi Lauper, the punky New York princess who just wanted to have fun in the 80's, has matured into a woman who can add an organic honesty to classic standards, as featured on this Soundstage and in her most recent album At Last. From Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose" and "Hymn to Love," to the playful "Makin' Whoopee," to somber serenades like "Unchained Melody," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "Walk on By," Lauper elevates her adoring audience with a revealing candor, an impressive range and a pensive sense for interpretation.
But her performance is also a celebration with Lauper's innate sparkle shining through the fun flashbacks "Time After Time," "True Colors," "Money Changes Everything," "Shine" and, of course, "Girls Just Want To Have Fun." With the audience dancing on chairs, and the artist running up the aisles and delivering anecdotal asides, Grammy-winning Lauper reveals that she's a true performer - at ease with her identity as a modern pop powerhouse, but prepared to revel in her most recent reincarnation.

  • Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert

    Celine Dion

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 1 hr 42 min

    Freed from her long-term Las Vegas engagement in 2007, Celine Dion took a similar spectacle on the road to support her 2007 album Taking Chances. The Concert offers a souvenir of said tour, editing together highlights from late summer 2008 stints in Boston and Montreal. Celine throws an occasional curve ball -- her soul parade at the end of the show veers on high camp as she sings far too much James Brown for her own good -- but, as always, she gives the people what they want via a recitation of the expected hits in arrangements so splashy they sparkle even without the visuals. If this doesn't sound like a good time, well, you're not the audience -- this is for the fans and they will be pleased.

    Kylie Minogue

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 1 hr 49 min

    On the one hand, pop musically speaking, worldbeaters such as Kylie Minogue are few and far between. Singers and performers of her stature and popularity rarely maintain their power for as long as she was able to. Her streaks of number one singles in both Australia and the U.K. are nearly insurmountable. And yet, on the other hand, her inability to really crack open the American pop market over the course of her career is a story that is heard all too often from groups hailing from nations as pop powerful as Australia and the U.K. Eventually, with the hugely successful "Can't Get You Out of My Head," Kylie would rattle the American pop psyche, reminding the rather insular scene that the bubbly girl who had first made waves with the 1987 cover of "The Loco Motion" had developed into a stylish, experienced, and able pop performer with a clear agenda — both musically and visually — and the chops to match. To focus on Minogue's American problem would only be looking at a small fraction of the larger story.

  • Live in London

    Regina Spektor

    Year: 1995

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    'LIVE IN LONDON' is the first live recording and concert film from acclaimed artist Regina Spektor. Captured mainly at London's famed Hammersmith Apollo Theatre, 'LIVE IN LONDON' features 23 remarkable performances that span Spektor's brilliant catalog of music, including three new songs that have only been performed live ('Silly Eye-Color Generalizations,' 'Bobbing For Apples and 'Love, You're A Whore'). 'LIVE IN LONDON' was recorded during Regina's UK tour in support of her latest album, 'far,' which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. For the first time, fans can see Regina up close as she performs fan favorites like 'Us,' 'Fidelity,' 'Samson' and 'Eet,' along with backstage footage, inside peaks at sound check and more. 'LIVE IN LONDON' is a captivating 64-minute concert film directed by Adria Petty. An artist praised for her remarkable originality, inspired storytelling and enthralling performances, Rolling Stone raves, 'Spektor put on one of the most intensely joyful rock shows we've seen all year.' The Philadelphia Inquirer adds, 'Everything she did was greeted with thunderous applause... the audience could not get enough. Perhaps what was most remarkable about Regina's performance, aside from hearing Spektor's gorgeous vocals in person, was her ability to enrapture the crowd... Spektor's passion, vitality and sheer musical talent transformed the Electric Factory into a world of intimacy.' The Boston Globe simply says, 'multi-talented Spektor is capable of anything and it shows on stage.'

  • MTV Unplugged

    Bob Dylan

    Year: 1994

    Runtime: 1 hr 12 min

    Recorded in 1994, Bob Dylan - MTV Unplugged is a brilliant, quietly impassioned performance by one of pop music's most significant figures. Fronting his empathetic five-piece band (Bucky Baxter excels on dobro, mandolin, and pedal steel guitar; Bob himself plays frequent "rhythm leads" on his Martin), Dylan performs four of his best-known and potentially most overdone tunes in the 73-minute show; but "All Along the Watchtower," "The Times They Are A-Changin'," "Like a Rolling Stone," and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" all sound great, with Dylan, as is his wont, re-casting both the arrangements and melodies. Even better is the obscure "John Brown" (written in the early '60s), a driving, biting war protest song of the kind that made him famous, while "Dignity," a lesser-known tune from the '90s, is filled with great lines ("Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues... said he was abused by dignity"), and "Shooting Star" revisits Oh Mercy, Dylan's best '80s album. Through it all, Dylan says nary a word, although he does smile and shake some hands (even removing his shades) at the end. And as good as it may be, this show is most likely different from every Dylan concert before or since, a sure sign of an artist in no danger of becoming irrelevant.
