"I just want to make a point about the video quality that some people have written in their reviews. I have an HDTV and a great 5.1 sound system and so high quality video is beautiful to see. The video of this concert is definitely not a problem. It's just not crystal clean clear like we're all used to these days. But after reading the reviews here I was expecting poor video quality but I still knew I wanted to see this concert and purchased the dvd anyway. The video is great. No problem in this regard. The most important thing is the sound. And this concert rocks. The Dolby Digital sound is comparable to any other concert available today. Just turn it up and you'll feel it! This is a typical Setzer show. Big bass, big drums, big horns and great vocals by Brian and of course the killer Gretsch sound by the King Cat himself. The concert is fantastic. The only downside to this disc is they're no extras. No interviews or backstage stuff that we've been spoiled with on the other Setzer dvd's. But the title says it all I guess. It's about One Rockin' Night, not One Rockin' Extras."
Early Raw BSO

"I have always listened to this concert from the Ultimate Collection cd. I was looking forward to finally seeing it. The song selection is some of the best they have ever done. This concert was extreme high energy and the band and Brian looked to be having a great time. You get the feeling that they are just playing for the fun of it and they are very loose. The version of Rock this town is totally different than you have ever heard it before. Brian is sizzling through out. This is not a fancy production at all. It looks like someone just showed up and recorded it, and I am glad they did. This is BSO, when they were just starting out and were trying to prove themselves, and they quickly make believers of everyone. One of the best guitar performances of all time is on this dvd and it is in the song Honky Tonk. If ever someone wanted to see what Brian is all about with his guitar, watch this song and you will then know why he is the best there is on the guitar. All this said, this is one great concert."
Smokin' Hot Performance But Already Released Audio

"As one of many who pre-ordered this DVD I couldn't wait to track it upon delivery. Much to my surprise it's the same show released a few years back on CD (BSO: Ultimate Collection - Recorded Live). I'll be quite honest in saying that I eagerly looked forward to ripping the audio from this DVD to add to my already large BSO bootleg collection but such is not the case.
Still, after watching it this morning it's a fabulous show recorded when the band was still hungry and trying to prove their worth. Filmed in 1995, Brian was still mostly on the svelte side with that all-knowing Setzer attitude, confident of what he'd created - an incredible hard rockin' and hard driving band.
Even though I've enjoyed the audio to this gig for some years now, it's even better to see things as well. The band along with Brian clearly are in synch this night and the enthusiastic crowd helps fuel the fire. I loved seeing Setzer as well as some of the horn section knocking back a few cold ones during the show. And watch for one of the sax players who throws a towel to a front row audience member after they've been whipped in to a frenzy. All in all, a very special night.
From a standpoint of bonus material, the Montreal throng keeps bringing the band back for more. So much so, they have to resort to re-playing three tunes that they did earlier in the evening! The three bonus tracks all played a second time are: Brand New Cadillac, Hoodoo Voodoo Doll, and Rumble In Brighton. Clearly, the BSO in 1995 was still in its infancy and lacking the wonderful catalog we know today.
Another point this concert cements for me is what an incredibly talented guitarist Brian Setzer is. I'll easily put him up there with the greats of all time and that's not an easy statement to make. The guy owns more 1960 model Gretsch guitars than any other person alive but can walk the walk. A truly gifted player.
I'm extremely pleased to add this DVD to my collection and recommend it highly. Kudos to Setzer and Company. Do keep them coming!
Setzer great, video quality not

"Setzer tears it up again on the screen but the quality of the video is not that great...the audio is fine, but I do like the live in Japan video better. He still has rockin' tone and tons of energy! This dvd is still a great watch!"
