For the past day or so I've been immersed in the latest releases by "Ytsejam Records" (DT's official bootleg label): Images and Words - Demos and a fantastic DVD celebrating the 15th anniversary of When Dream and Day Unite, which was DT's first album. The main part of the DVD covers a show in March 2004 where DT played WDADU in its entirety. For the encore, they invited former lead singer Charlie Dominici and former keyboardist Derek Sherinian to play two songs, including Metropolis Part 1. While the concert is definitely a treat, the real gems are the bonus features. There is a 70-minute documentary from the Portnoy archives, recounting the album song by song through interviews and live footage circa 1988. And all five current members of DT provide a commentary track on the entire concert. One of my favorite exchanges: Portnoy: "Notice Jordan [Rudess] is playing both parts at the same time...something Kevin [Moore, DT's founding keyboardist] never did." Rudess: (modestly) "The miracle of a split keyboard." Portnoy: "No, it's the miracle of Jordan Rudess." Even though it sounded as though Portnoy was taking a shot at Kevin Moore, he really wasn't. There is great respect--even affection--for the former members, including Dominici (who they said was just the wrong singer for the band's style of music). The funny thing is, there are certain songs where I prefer his voice over LaBrie's. It is cool to see them both sing Metropolis, alternating some lines and singing harmonies on others. For any DT fan, this DVD is a must buy. Highly recommended! One other DT tidbit. They just finished recording their latest studio album (due out in May) at The Hit Factory, the famous NY recording studio that just went out of business. In fact, DT's album was the very last album recorded there. The first was Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life, some 30 years ago.
