A lot has been made of the Okonokos DVD, My Morning Jacket's live concert film, recorded at San Francisco's Fillmore Auditorium. The live performance DVD is so seductive and powerful - because of the lush backdrop set and wonderfully immediate manner in which it was shot as well as the music - yet the double CD that accompanies it and the four-LP vinyl set on Badman Records of the same recording seem to get scant attention. Sure, they are mentioned, but somehow just as geegaws to accompany the DVD. Wrong
Their new DVD, "Okonokos," is the DVD testament to their ability as a live band, and like U2's "Live From Slane Castle, Neil Young & Crazy Horse's "Live at the Fillmore East," Drive-By Truckers' "Live at the 40 Watt," The Grateful Dead's "Europe '72," Radiohead's "27 5 94 - The Astoria - London - Live," Led Zeppelin's "How the West. Was Won" or Pink Floyd's "Pulse," this DVD is a definitive live document. I personally think that My Morning Jacket walked the tightrope pretty successfully throughout this show. Overall, if you're a fan of live music (especially if you are fans of any of the aforementioned bands), check out this DVD. It's a classic live show and not one to be missed.

Certainly, since it was recorded on the tour for the incredibly successful album Z, it concentrates on a lot of the band's 2000s material. But they dig deep, too, and go back to 1999's "I Think I'm Going to Hell" from The Tennessee Fire, as well as "The Way That He Sings" and "It Still Moves" from 2001's At Dawn, and "I Will Sing You Songs" and "Mahgeetah" from the It Still Moves disc in 2003 to close the entire show.
