Synopsis by Mark Deming

In 1975, after a legendary tenure as the head of Columbia Records, Clive Davis started his own label, Arista Records, which became one of the most successful and prestigious imprints in the music industry. A number of Arista's best-known artists gathered to pay tribute to Clive Davis in honor of the label's 25th anniversary in 2000; this home video edition of the concert collects new live performances from Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Santana, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, Patti Smith, Puff Daddy, Toni Braxton, Kenny G, and Barry Manilow, along with video clips from such past Arista chart-toppers as the Kinks, the Grateful Dead, Air Supply, and the Thompson Twins.
