Editorial Reviews
Be honest now: what rock fan hasn't fantasized about one day seeing Alice 
Cooper and the Who's Roger Daltrey on stage together, belting out the Rolling 
Stones' "Start Me Up" with backing by Pete Townshend's brother, Ringo Starr's 
son, and the bombast of a full symphony orchestra? Well, OK, so maybe that 
peculiar pairing is no one's idea of rock & roll heaven. But that didn't stop the 
producers of this 90-minute outdoor concert from assembling a wildly disparate 
cast, ranging from Daltrey, Cooper, and Procol Harum's Gary Brooker to Darlene 
Love (best known as the voice of the Crystals' classic "He's a Rebel") and 
lesser lights like singers Alvin Fields and Nikki Lamborn, to raise money for the 
Let Music Live charity and to celebrate the music of the Beatles, the Stones, 
the Who, Led Zeppelin, and others. Some of it is pretty predictable (there's 
a feeling of inevitability to "Stairway to Heaven," "With a Little Help from 
My Friends," "Pinball Wizard," and others), but there are also moments of 
genuine inspiration. Daltrey, who never seems to tire of those Pete Townshend 
songs, sounds great on "You Better You Bet" and "Who Are You," as well as outside 
fare like the Stones' "Street Fighting Man"; and Love, despite an occasional 
tendency to oversing, brings soulful fervor and conviction to the likes of "Ruby 
Tuesday." The DVD sound is superb, the visuals are good, and performers and 
audience alike seem to be having a good time. Still, aside from the curiosity 
(or novelty) factor, one has to wonder why anyone would prefer these versions 
to the originals. --Sam Graham

>>>>I found an interesting mp3 of Roger Daltrey and Ann Wilson doing a duet 
of Kashmir.? There is little variation on the song other than the vocals.? I 
rather enjoyed it.? What is this from and when was it recorded?? Roger's voice 
sounded circa late 1980s-early 90s<<<<
