Movie Reviews

C. Kuschel-Toerber | Frankfurt, Hessen | 02/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As this video was unfortunately never sold in Europe, I had to go out and buy it in the original NTSC version in California during a summer vacation in 1995. Even though I had to get it copied to European PAL standard, it is a tape I treasure & never get tired of watching. Again, as DF has never made it across the ocean for a concert tour over here, the video is all have after 23 years of listening to the man's music to make up for never having been able to see him on stage. "Greetings From the West" is a wonderful 110 minute piece of concert footage, including some personal words from Dan and also a great selction of some of his best-loved tunes. It shows just what a great singer, musician & composer Dan Fogelberg is: tender ballads, energetic rockers and some very poetic lyrics - music that will never sound out of date. Excellent!"
Great Concert, Great Performance, Poor transfer to DVD

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I've had this concert on VHS for several years, and it is one of the very first great concert videos. I couldn't wait until it was on DVD, but I shouldn't have bothered. My VHS tape looks better and sounds better than the DVD. The audio CD of this concert blows away the VHS tape, so I know good audio is there--why didn't we get it on this DVD? And the video looks like a VHS dub, and not even to DVD, but maybe to another VHS tape. The video smear and blur added to the audio dullness and distortion makes for a very poor transfer to DVD. I kid you not, I did an A/B comparison of my VHS tape to this DVD, and the tape won on both audio (VHS-HiFi) and video!
On the other hand, this concert is such a great performance that if you like Dan Fogelberg, you'll still like it, even with the horrible DVD quality. His rendition of "Power of Gold" alone justifies the price of this disc, and there are many more great songs for a bonus. Forget the picture and sound quality and just enjoy the concert. I'd give 5 stars for performance and 2 for the transfer and this averages to about 3.5, so I'll round it up to a 4."
Great music, great songwriting...average sound

"Overall, this performance is stunning, and a must have for any Dan Fogelberg fan. His voice sounds higher and different than most of the renowned studio songs, and that may surprise some, but there's no complaint about its quality. The songs are so fine, that one can help but wonder why Dan has been so overlooked and underrated as an artist and songwriter. It's a pity that this is the only way that we can hear Dan Fogelberg on DVD, because they didn't put a lot of work on the sound. As somebody said it here, this looks like a simple transfer from the VHS, a poor one in sound, and just acceptable in picture. Luckyly, most of the songs have an average sound, but the interview snippets and some of the songs have a very noticeable distortion. But it's hard not to enjoy the concert even having to go through the abscense of quality in the video. Come on, SONY MUSIC, is this the best that you can do?."

"I have the VCR copy of this and I purchased the DVD, hoping to have another way to watch it. However the quality of the DVD is horrible. It's like someone pirated it from the VCR copy. I could've done a better job with lesser equipment."
