Not so great balls of fire at all

"I'm a Jerry Lee Lewis fan and am happy that in the wake of "Last Man Standing" a lot more material from the late 70s/early 80s finally gets released on dvd. And if you think that I buy it all, you're right. So I also bought this p.o.s. If you are looking forward to receiving this because of the Killer half of it you will feel let down by the picture and sound quality or the lack thereof. There is only one that stinks even worse, and it's 12 min longer: "Jerry Lee Lewis in concert on ILC Entertainment, ILC3599".
What could have been a quite enjoyable dvd, especially with the rare live tracks on it (She Even Woke Me Up To Say Good-bye, Country Memories, When Two Worlds Collide) and the Killer in great shape, suffers from about the worst picture, contrast, sharpness and sound quality I've seen so far. I really wonder how they do this special effect, that the picture gets brighter when Jerry Lee sings and gets dark once he plays the piano or sb else does a solo, whoever they are, because you can't identify anyone on that stage. I guess Kenneth Lovelace was there playing his guitar like he always does.
Any highschool kid would be expelled from class if he turned in such crap for presentation. There is privately recorded Elvis Presley concert material from the seventies that looks and sounds better.
If I had bought this directly from amazon and not on marketplace, I'd returned it.
These dvds are an absolute disgrace to the artist, who should protect his name and sue these f...ers who soil his name and rob the faithful fans.
PS: The Bill Haley one is in better quality. I think it was taped on his very last tour in England, so there is some historical value. One star for that and one for the Killer."
