The Alive And Transported CD contains the audio from a tobyMac live show in Houston, Texas during his Portable Sounds Tour, including the special live additions and improvisations (the CD, however, does have a little less than 3 minutes cut from the audio, probably for space reasons). Of course, while the CD is good, to get the real effect of his show you need to actually it— which brings us to that all-important second disc…
The DVD contains the full-length video of the said concert, along with a bonus feature; it really is the reason to buy Alive And Transported.
The concert film is uncut (except for perhaps a portion of the “One More Song!”-chanting wait between the main part of the show and the encore ); very professionally done; and— since tobyMac’s live show already rates a full 5 & 1/2 Stars, and the film is the next best thing to being there— it’s excellent.
The DVD also has a bonus “Behind The Scenes” feature, containing excellent behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and thoughts plus hilarious goofing-off clips afterward.
In short, if you’ve never yet been to a tobyMac show or you just want to relive it over again, or even if you’d just like a great inside look at toby and the band, this release is for you.
