"This is a LIVE CD recorded in 1984. The songs are good but the quality is not. The songs are not connected and the start and stop very abruptly. I wish I knew it was live but couldn't find out it was until I received it.
When will it be time to release the old 70's from Donny and Marie on CD?? "Goin' Coconuts" was fantastic and so was "New Season". Those are the CD's that we want, not a live 1984 CD. Also, would be great to have more of the TV shows and the movie Goin' Coconuts on DVD. It's a fun movie and has catchy songs. Donny you are doing a great job with the remastered releases so far but please remaster more of the 70's albums and tv shows. Thanks."
CD was misrepresented

"The description of the songs in the advertising of this cd led you to believe that Donny & Marie were singing some of their best songs. No where did it say that the majority of the songs were merely a medley. The CD was poorly made, some of the songs could not be heard. Donny & Marie deserve better CDs than how this was produced. I wouldn't recommend this if you really enjoy the artists that we know Donny & Marie are. Someone let them down on this CD."

"If you are a real fan of Donny and Marie and don't mind live recordings then this is a good cd. There doesn't seem to be a lot of audience applause during this recording which almost makes me feel sad for D&M, however, it was recorded in the 80's when I think their popularity had begun to fade a bit. I have always love D&M so I enjoyed the cd. Also, alot of the songs are ones that have been recorded by other artists (such as Tammy Wynette's Stand by your Man (which Marie sings) and the Pointer Sisters I'm So Excited (which Donny sings). They do snippets of some of the songs that they made popular together but not too many. Anwyay, if you love D&M as I do, then you will enjoy this cd. If you are just a so-so fan, then I wouldn't necessarily purchase this particular cd. Go for one of the Best of ... cd's."
Not worth the money!

"this is more Marie than Donny; and it is basically a pirate copy of a concert they did together back in the 80s. Don't bother buying this CD - it isn't worth it."
