Don't care much for the blu-ray cover because:

1. Couple
2. Bon Voyage, why is this phrase still used? French isn't cool. That's like Uki performcing with slogan "Sha Bi" behind his back.

Blu Ray shipped.

Another 2 hours of underwhelming material incoming!

The Youtube videos of a few of the songs were promising.

I'm so much more interested in this than the past two lives. I had trouble finding anything redeeming about the accordion concert.

I agree. The accordion concert blew. This will at least be a visual feast.

Visual feast does not necessarily translate into good show once converted into audio though. For example, Bon Voyage.

Accordian show has some really great musical performances and Midorin is tight AF. The only version of IMA I can listen to too.

IMO, a good example of 'less is more'. But each to their own.

Now thinking of what I reckon the worst recent Ringo live *that is available publicly* was (I'm not counting that NIPPON cause it wasn't really her fault) was that festival event where she basically let Sayuri do half the show for her...

People on a Ringo forum getting more pumped over the light show than the music these days while dismissing her best live in years.

DAYUM.

Definitely time for her to change her name/stage persona permanently to Deyonna

I don't know why you're suggesting that the visual presentation of her music has to be inherently inferior to an 'accordian' concert. I think both are equally great. That is, of course, in a context where she's been putting out consistently great music to perform, and putting new arrangements on older classics as well.

I loved Toutaikai and that Re:Import live that she did, as much as I enjoyed the first Ringo Expo. This one looks like it's gonna be great as well.

Worst Ringo live for me that is available on DVD is, for me, Spa and Treatment by default, only because Variety is my least favourite album she's put out so far. And even in that I could find a lot to like.

It is inferior though. There's nothing wrong with a bit of a show when you're a pop/rock star and you have the tunes to back it up. The problem arises when you still put these shows on but completely neglect the music in the process.

Her current fanbase (whoever they are) don't seem to care one little bit as long as Ringo herself is FABULOUS!

That's why I like the accordion show. It's focus is the music which is how it should be. Why Ringo felt the need to become a dime store Lady GaGa I'll never know. A bit early for the mid-life crisis I'd have thought.
