This is what she did……

 

 

This is what it SHOULD BE!!

Keiko Fuji, a famous Enka singer from Japan passed away in August.  A great loss to the music world, as she was an amazing singer/artist.

She is also the mother of Utada Hikaru.

 

Here are some links to info.

Utada HIkaru–Wild Life DVD/Blu Ray

 

Hello there happy humans… Today my copy of the Utada Hikaru – Wild Life Concert on Blu Ray arrived. So impressed.

news_large_utada_dvd

 

I watched the original broadcast live via Ustream and noted it in a previous blog found here: https://uneasypills.com/2010/12/08/hikaru-utada-liveustream-tv/

This is the official DVD release of the concert, with extra footage and what not.

Both the DVD and Blu Ray have the same content, and it came with a bonus poster… ok I’m not really into posters, but none the less.

The Live concert was quite amazing to watch… and the DVD is no different, the quality of the BR disk was a little weird though, though it was HD in most parts, it was still a little grainy.

None the less, all good… glad to have it, and add it to my ever expanding collection of Utada HIkaru stuff.

Note that she has re-signed to EMI under Hikaru Utada… and hopefully in a few years when she starts again, we will all get to hear new material.

It’s always interesting as a musician myself to follow artists that actually have an input into their work, like this artist, who composes her own works. A respect for the real musicians of the world. Seeing as this was (from what I gather) mostly visualised by UH, it’s good to see other creative aspects coming through, other than the accepted musical ones…

As long as you love your craft, your craft will always love you. Smile

Notable here is Matt Rohde on keys and arrangements, which is nice to see again, as he worked on a previous concert with UH, both of which I believe have a much more raw and real approach/feel to the arrangements

Anyways, I be ranting … enjoying the concert again.

Hikaru Utada Live–Ustream.tv

Yes, today I was in heaven….

When I just purely by chance saw a tweet from Hikaru, about a pending live concert, and here I am, in New Zealand.. watching Hikaru Utada … LIVE in concert on ustream.tv.

These are the days I am glad the internet exists.

Thank you Internet.

The show went on for 2.5 hours…. and it’s really nice when an artist, such as Hikaru Utada shows that they have talent by playing actual instruments and singing live.

Live screen caps during the show…. Smile
