I picked up the new Sade Live dvd today at bestbuy. The title is "Sade Lovers Live". If you are a Sade fan you will want this disc. 21 songs, DD5.1 that sounds great and a very good concert to boot. I give it three thumbs up.

You mean to tell me it's out now? Time to add another DVD to my purchase list. Can't wait to get this. The CD was great, but listening to it I get the feeling that certain parts were edited for space....example, the ending of 'Smooth Operator' sounded like a fadeout...is that extended on the DVD?

It's a pretty surprising release, considering we just had 2 Sade DVD's a few months ago, which included another live performance. I'm gladly picking it up this week though. Posted Image

Although the box doesn't state it, this title is widescreen as well! Posted Image

Yes, but does anyone know if it is anamorphic? I can not tell as I do not have a 16:9 set as of yet.

Great concert though!!!

Picked up this disc yesterday. While I agree it's a good effort and anamorphic to boot, the packaging clearly shows the DTS logo but a DTS soundtrack appears to be absent from the disc. Has anyone been able to find a DTS track? The DTS logo clearly appears on both the disc and outer packaging. False advertising, or just a mistake?

No, there is no DTS track on this disc. Frankly, I didn't even see that logo. Looks like it's kind of a generic thing printed in the lower right corner. (Not that it's right, it just looks that way to me.)

Actually, I would have preferred a PCM stereo track instead of DD 2.0. But I guess you can't have everything for $14.99. I mean, this is just one buck above BB's price for the CD, which has a lot less music on it, and you get anamorphic widescreen footage with it as well. So I guess I am happy.Posted Image

Randy, thanks for mentioning BB had this for this price. Why they don't advertise this in their flyer, I have no idea.

Has anyone compared the 2 live discs yet?

BTW, the last live disc did have PCM as an option, which is always nice. Posted Image I haven't decided if I need 2 Sade Live DVDs over so much other great music titles I don't yet have.

Just a quick comparison: the new disc has more songs, includes material from Lovers Rock (obviously), and is anamorphic widescreen. Subjectively, I felt the concert on the new disc has a cooler, somewhat detached feel. The earlier disc felt like a much more impassioned performance. Also, the earlier concert has a more varied look to it, which is a bit more appealing to my eyes.

So at least for me, the pros and cons balance each other out. You certainly don't need both, but for $14.99 and a nice big image of Sade on my widescreen, I ain't gonna turn it down! Posted Image

What was the previous live dvd called?
Also on this one most of the audience shot appears to be non anamorphic only the stage shots are,which is kinda odd but not a huge deal.
The DTS logo is on both on the back cover and on the disc itself,this kinda bugs me though.

I can't seem to find this title on this side of the border. Was it ever released in Canada? I find it odd that the CD is here but there is no DVD to speak of.Posted Image
