  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Put your hands together for this "Intimate" and soulful R&B performance by "Howard Hewett." Shot at the softly-lit Club/Fais Do Do on November 5. 2004, the room steams up as Hewett sings his Billboard hits "Stay," "I'm For Real," and "Show Me." His velvety voice sounds as smooth as ever, as Hewett proves he can still seduce an audience with timeless love songs and hits from the past few decades. This DVD is a must-have "For The Lover In You." (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced concert performance is presented with pleasing image quality. The 1.78:1 picture is quite sharp, with satisfying details, though

Intimate is a good way to describe this Dolby
