The centerpiece of the DVD is a live acoustic concert recorded one night in late October 2001 -- just Phil with his JamMan and a guitar. How does one distill more than three decades worth of songs and compositions into a single, representative concert set list? Quite a challenge, but the DVD is very successful in its cross-cut of Phil's rich musical history. "Philly Live" includes old and new material, concert staples and unexpected surprises, simple vocal tunes and extended acoustic jams. This will be a great "first concert" for any new fan and a satisfying "homecoming" for old fans!
Highlights of the concert are the extended versions of "Salvation Army Band," "Strong Tower," "True Believers," and "John the Revelator" that showcase Phil's willingness to run headlong into the unknown at breakneck speeds. But just as powerful are the simple and heartwarming "Spend My Life with You," "Olivia," and "Maker of the Universe." Given the closeness to 9/11, Phil's concert is more toned down than usual, but there is enough variety to make fans happy. Although the DVD contains few purely instrumental tunes, there are plenty of extended improvisations and outstanding fretwork.
The concert is fantastic, but the bonus DVD material is the icing on the cake. On "In the Studio," Phil gives a brief history of his recording and songwriting techniques as well as a bit of his musical philosophy. The DVD also features thoughts, insights and stories from Robin Crow, Muriel Anderson, Randy Stonehill, Jerry Gaskill & Doug Pinnick (King's X), Lynn Nichols, road manager Brian Persall and webmaster and publicist Robin Eastburn, among others. There's even a video of Phil playing "Way Back Home" at the infamous water pump! The crowning touch is having Phil Keaggy and Brian Persall in your living room when you watch the DVD! Virtually, at least. There is an optional audio commentary during the concert that's like hanging out with Phil and Brian while you watch the concert. They discuss the who, what, where and why of Phil's songs and techniques, wardrobe and even his mistakes. Far from being boring technobabble, the humorous banter between Phil and Brian will keep every fan entertained.
