"This issue is a prime example of the problem with dvd "periodicals": they will long outlast their necessity. Sure, I love Hooverphonic, but how many times will I swoon over Geike and listen to their acoustic performance of, "Mad About You"? My guess, 4 times. How many times will I kick back to the strummings of Ryan Adams? Mojave 3? Hey, I'd say 3. Is it worth the $..? Actually, no.
