Title Screen: Return Video

Background Track: "The Opener" by The Winans; lead vocal: Marvin Winans (written by Marvin Winans; from their Return: Live In Concert video; originally featured on their album Live At Carnegie Hall (copyrighted/produced by Selah Records, 1990)). Due to technical difficulties, the Sound Quality on the background track is worse than the actual "Return: Live In Concert" video.

        I like this video! This concert is shot at the Apollo Theater in New York.  The Winans open with an nice sounding upbeat version of their song "Right, Left In A Wrong World". THIS SONG WILL HAVE WINANS FANS JAMMING!!!
         The second song that they sing is  "A Friend" which features brothers Aaron and Damion Hall (both of the group Guy - which also includes Teddy Riley who appears on this video as well). As they sing this song, Marvin and Aaron Hall go out into the audience and sing with what seems to be Angie Winans. This song sounds nice.
         After "A Friend", Ron Winans nicely sings a "Uphold Me", followed by "Gonna Be Alright" sung by Ronald and Marvin Winans.
         After "Gonna Be Alright", Marvin Winans sings The Opener which was featured on Live At Carnegie Hall, which serves as a prelude this time to "When You Cry", sung by Carvin Winans, who has made a wardrobe change, who sings "When You Cry", and eventually is joined by the rest of the Winans. "When You Cry" later transitions into a nice version of "Ain't No Need To Worry", which Marvin and Carvin Winans leading the song (Carvin Winans being only a lead singer singing the part of Anita Baker for one line; this version of the song is similar to that featured on Live At Carnegie Hall). The Winans' harmony and Lafayette Carthon, Jr.'s playing make this song sound nice.
          One of the highllights of the Winans' performance is "Don't Leave Me", I like the Winans' backgrounding (or attempted backgrounding...). This song is also nice because it fuses Don't Leave Me with another Winans' favorite, "Restoration". The Winans even did the same dance that they did when they sung it on their Live In Concert video.
          After Marvin Winans forces an ending of Restoration, Ron Winans leads "Wherever I Go", which transitions into "I'll Follow Where You Lead" lead consecutively by Michael, Carvin, and Marvin Winans, and The Winans later sing "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms".
          The Winans virtually cut up on the last song on this video, "It's Time".  Teddy Riley is featured on this track and sings with The Winans. 
This is a very nice recording. It's too bad that it wasn't made into an album like Live At Carnegie Hall.
