"I was really excited to open up this DVD, crank up the volume, and skank along with the one and only Gregory Isaacs. Unfortunately I was disappointed from the outset. The video quality is quite poor (along with camera-work and editing) and Gregory himself was a sad sight. A once handsome, confident, strapping figure, he is now reduced to a grey-haired, pot-bellied, teetering old shell of himself. What's equally disappointing is the obvious weakness of his once strong, silky voice. In fact, his songs often sound best when he turns his mike to the audience (which he does constantly throughout the show). Gregory has been such a wonderful part of the reggae world that it's heartbreaking to see what he's become. On the positive side, the song selection is excellent and the 5.1 audio really sounds great. If your a huge Isaacs fan you may want to fork over the cash to get this disc, otherwise take that same money and purchase one of his many, many classic cds."
