TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME - LIVE IN MONTREAL is a world class quality DVD that is a must for fans of Roger Hodgson and Supertramp. Filmed in HD with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, the technical aspects of this DVD are superb and create the perfect platform for the voice and music that helped to define a generation.
Fans have been raving about Roger's live show for years and now, for the first time, the energy and magic of those shows have been captured in a format that brings Roger to your living room.
Classics from Roger's works he recorded with Supertramp and his solo career take on a new life with a 115 minute presentation that is not only remarkably close to the original recordings, but offered in an solo acoustic performance that will allow you to hear every note and every lyric as he originally wrote them.
The tonal quality and strength of his voice is amazing and really shines through on this DVD. Get up close and personal with Roger in a DVD packed with over 90 minutes of bonus features.
Hear what fans in Montreal had to say about this show:
"The show was just great!! Your (songs) have grown up like a good wine...your voice is better than ever and listening to you playing 12 strings and piano sounds heaven to my ears. The simplicity of your performance allowed me to appreciate your songs even more."
"Thanks for a very magical night. A troubadour-poet has given us a night to remember. This was the best show I have seen in years. Roger Hodgson has shown us again his talent, respect and devotion to his art."
"...thank you for the great show in Montreal ...and for all the melodies you created and that touched my ears, my heart and my soul throughout the years."
"It brought us back more than two decades ago with so many beautiful memories and such great music. The sound and the emotion were the same."
"I'm 18 years old, and being a lover of classic tunes like Supertramp's, I was absolutely blown away by the concert. It was amazing and a night that I will think of dearly for the rest of my life."
"Wow, superb show. I felt like I was in my living room with a musician friend...Intimate setting...Thanks for this great evening."
"Marvelous. I couldn't take my eyes off you...and even now, some tears manage to fall when I hear Give a little bit, because of the memory they remind me. You were wonderful!"
And here is an advance review of the DVD itself: "It is difficult to explain, however the DVD is so well filmed and edited that it's impossible to remain insensitive. When I saw it, I was so into it that it felt like I was really back there… in the first row with my parents and friends, and the gamut of the excitement and emotions we went through! It will make a wonderful souvenir to all of his fans worldwide. When I miss Roger… I will be able to listen to the DVD and it will take me back to that magical day on June 6, 2006 in Montreal where Roger put Heart, Soul, and Voice into the word Musicianship."
This amazing addition to the works of Roger Hodgson is available now! The DVD comes in a choice of NTSC (all zone) and PAL (European) formats. If you were one of the fortunate ones to have seen Roger perform in recent years or if you have wanted to but never had the chance, his debut DVD is as close to his live show that you could ever hope to experience.
