"Being a big fan of the band I was hoping for better. In this day and age I was hoping for better. Good list of songs but video is lacking. Sound is not bad but its not good either. No idea who is in the band now because its not listed. Seems like a home movie that was made with 2 camera men. Focus is on whoever is lighted by the light show crew. Last song is not complete.
If your a die hard fan this won't help, if your not you probally not reading this anyways.
Lets hope for better in the future.
You would be better off throwing in a CD and enjoying the band.
Low Tech DVD

"I've just had a look through this, and find it to be a very sub standard DVD which I have paid a premium DVD price for. I would guess it has been transferred to DVD from film or video.
The problem is that this has been done with very low tech gear. The picture is not great and out of synch with the sound the whole way through. Even the opening TKO logos at the start are amateurish. What is most distressing is the poor sound quality, which includes a lot of hum and other background noises.
If the original recording had been remastered and transferred to DVD with more high tech gear, the picture would be slightly better and in synch with the sound but more importantly, as it is a music DVD, the sound would have been cleaned up considerably, possibly remixed (depending on what the original source was), and virtually all background noise eliminated. Two of the tunes are only half the usual lenght.
I totally agree with Brian Gallaghers comments. My DVD has a folded sheet in the front which states this concert was in April 1980. Band consisting of: David Clayton-Thomas (vocals) Richard Martinez (keyboards) David Piltch (bass) Earl Seymour (saxs & flute) Bobby Economou (Drums) Vernon Dorge (saxs & flute) Bruce Cassidy (trumpet & flugelhorn) Robert Piltch (guitar)
This is a DVD I'd watch once out of interest because I'm a BS&T fan, but not repeated listenings because it is just not near good enough."
