"This dvd is so good I don't know where to start. Superbly shot by a cuban TV crew at the Karl Marx Theatre in La Habana, Cuba in 2005. While the picture is 4:3 only and not better than a good normal-def tv broadcast, the fact is forgotten as the show progresses (pun intended) because the show is so emotional and the musicianship so virtuoso (with a special mention for bassist Lee Pomeroy). Rick gives the music-hungry cuban audience a sonic and visual feast they will never forget : a 140' hyper-intense show; man this dude is like 70 ? and he doesn't get tired, ever ? Got to love him !
The sound is almost flawless but for the fact Rick's keyboards come out from the left channel only which I found so annoying I switched the amp to mono to get a better sonic field, which worked out just perfectly. The 5.1 mix has considerably lower volume than its 2.0 counterpart and there's even a DTS sound option I didn't get to try. The setlist is very good, mostly old, well-known material intercalated with some obscure gems thrown in for good measure make this one of the most interesting RW DVDs ever released IMHO (although I'm still waiting for Six Wifes Live to arrive in my mailbox)"
