Where is Santa Fe? No 5.1 Transfer

"One of the most anticipated video-to-dvd transfers has to be the Juan Gabriel/Rocio Durcal concert, which was filmed in 1997 during their one-stop in Jalisco. Although many rumors have been passed around over the cancelation of the tour, at least you have this lipsync version. In this 16 track concert, you have to hand it to the spectacle the directors put; flashing colored lights, dancers, and mariachi. When first aired on television, the song "Que Bonito Es Santa Fe" was sung. Unfortunately it is not included in this dvd version. In regards to sound, you have two choices: Stereo or Surround. No extra features included. Music: B+ Sound: D"
AN EXCELLENT DVD

"THIS DVD, MORE THAN A CONCERT IS AN EXCELLENT PROMOTIONAL OF HER ALBUM "JUNTOS OTRA VEZ" RELEASED ON 1997, WHEN I FIRST SAW IT, I REALLY THOUGTH THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A DVD WITH SONGS THAT THE TWO OF THEM RECORDED IN THE PAST, BUT MY BIG SURPRISE WAS THAT IT WASN'T SOMETHING FROM THE PAST, IT WAS ACTUALLY A NEW ALBUM, FULL OF MEXICAN MUSIC, WITH FRESH SONGS AND VERY WELL DONE., ROCIO'S VOICE IS BETTER THAN AVER ON THIS FILM AND ALSO IS A SHOW FULL OF A GREAT AND VERY DYNAMIC PRESENTATION.
AND YOU MUST HAVE IT!!!."
Spectacular night of music and dancing!

"Now on DVD! One noticeable thing about the transfer to DVD is that the sound is off a fraction! It can be slightly distracting. PLUS, The 8 and ½ minute finale, "Que Bonito Es Santa Fe" is NOT included. It is on the VHS only. Get the companion double CD!!
Combine the velvety sound of Rocio Durcal and the unique nasal voice of Juan Gabriel and you have a perfect beautiful blend; it is no wonder they were singing partners, their voice becomes one!
Add a full-size orchestra, a huge mariachi band, professional dancers, beautiful costumes, fun and passion, and you have a night to remember.
More than a reunion concert, it is a first-rate performance. You don't need to understand Spanish to experience the chemistry as they passionately sing to one another, especially when they duet on "El Destino" and "Dos Favores".
Beautiful costumes and dance
And while dancing is visual and universal, sit back for many dancing performances with the array of costumes, the swaying skirts, tapping boots, variety of scarves and sombreros and last, the exuberant faces as premium dancers sashay across a huge stage. The numerous colorful costumes with intricate detail reflect the traditional cultures. Other songs include: "La Incertidumbre"; "Te Sigo Amando"; "Sabes Por Que"; "El Principio" plus many more!
During a break for Gabriel and Durcal, a lengthy musical and dancing sensation, "The Mexican Hat Dance" enhances the celebration. Always a wonderful dance, musically appreciative and so enjoying to watch!
Juan - the superstar
Juan Gabriel an international superstar and songwriter credits selling over 20 millions albums worldwide and has many influential performers cover his music, including Rocio Durcal a partner and movie actress at one time. Sparks ignite again and what better way to enjoy this than to view it over and over. It is exceptionally entertaining!
Miguel and Amalia
In the audience, Miguel Acevas Mejia and Amalia Mendoza join Juan Gabriel and Rocio Durcal as the younger duo recognizes true icons of Mexican music. Although they don't sing, their voices are heard in one of the songs.
Included is an orchestral instrumental "El Final" with images of Gabriel and Durcal in their youth and later. The backdrop of this "intermission" is the continuous gorgeous view of rich blue ocean water as the tides rise. That sound of a full orchestra is soothing and captivating.
I highly recommend another spectacular DVD of music and dance:
Linda Ronstadt - Canciones de Mi Padre: A Romantic Evening in Old Mexico .......Rizzo"
