Why this DVD is a must have companion to "Live in Amsterdam", March 3, 2008

Toto: Falling in Between Live
My favourite rock DVD for sound quality and sheer fun and energy of playing has been Toto's Live in Amsterdam 25th Anniversary. Their new DVD is easily as good but very different for a number of reasons.1. This album supports the album "Falling in Between" so it's not trying to cover all the hits. Having just seen them perform brilliantly in Auckland, I picked up their DVD to see that this incredible Parisian concert was almost identical to the concert I saw 2nd March 2008. This DVD showcases Toto at the top of their form - this is what they're like now and they rock!2. We have a new keyboardist, the vastly experienced Greg Phillinganes, plus the bass legend Leland Sklar standing in for Mike Porcaro. These new musicians bring a difference and their own style and enthusiasm so that when you see them perform tracks which they also did on their 'Live in Amsterdam' DVD, like 'Africa' for example, you are seeing something unique - check out the cheeky keyboard solo...

I currently own about 3000 cds and 300 concert dvdsI would put this concert DVD in the all time top 3 (Boz Scaggs Live is amazing as well)anyway, the band is tight, great mix from the board... incredible 5.1 audio and video, love the setlist..Simon Phillips is sick, just stellar..., appreciate the contributions of the new bandmates..have always wanted them to jam out I'll Supply the love... it has so much potential liveother personal favorites: Pamela, Rosanna, Africa (killer version, gives me chills past the 3:30 mark, Falling...)to sum it up: this is why HD was created, for this specific concert dvdgreat job band, sound engineer, mix, video (my only criticism: during Simon's drum solo, when he does a couple amazing fills, the camera is focused on Greg, the cameraman misses the best fill of his solo)any other drummers notice????Great DVD, one of the all time best, only wish more of them sounded and looked this good!

Forget the studio greats getting together to form a band, forget that they have " Great Ballads", FOR GET IT.They rock, they swoon, they reggae, they soul, they funk, the just flat tear it apart.I have the CD of the live album right after Simon Phillips joined back in the 90's version of the band after the passing of the Jeff the great!, and that disc was at that time just stellar. This one just lapped it at over 100 mph. Jeff is smiling on his heavenly drum stool! He would be most proud.The band is solid, the vocals are out of this world. Tony Spinner, holy crap, how did Luke snag him? SOLID ADDITION TO THE BAND DUDE.Being a bassist myself, do we have to say more about Leland Skylar, get some of his work with the Barefoot Servants, this cat just puts the B in bottom end!The DVD is beyond great in production.You will keep this playing for days and days.Hear is hoping these guys can hit the road here...
