Do Right or Don't Come Home

Dating tips from the Queen of Soul (New West)

The DVD is almost exclusively straight concert footage; a few dressing-room forays catch Hood and Cooley ornery and garrulous. The editing is flawless, offering kaleidoscopic close-up angles of the stage but perhaps too few crowd shots. Greater behind-the-scenes footage would've been nice also, but that's not what the band was going for here. Instead, the experience is like being on-stage at the show, watching the DBTs run through most of the Dirty South album and a few older tunes, including "Marry Me" and "The Living Bubba," which comes with an extended, emotive introduction by Hood. This is a group that has deserved greater attention since it broke out ten years ago. If enough of the uninitiated stumble onto these two hours of digitally pure, Drive-by grandeur, they might finally get it. -- Jonathan Zwickel
