"The music and video are wonderful. Whether live or on video Marshall Crenshaw is just enjoyable music. Too good for FM radio...
Now onto the disc...The video is clear and crisp. The LPCM audio is very well mixed. What is strange is the 5.1 AC3 is very artificial and "centered" in the left channel. One of the strangest mixes I've heard.
On top of this playing the disc results in some tracks being skipped. This occurs at the beginning of tracks only, so it isn't random dust or fingerprints.
If it wasn't for the obvious mastering problems this would have been a 5 star."
Sound is a bit off, editing choppy but performance is good

"i see the other reviewer pointed out the main complaint with this DVD - that the balance of the sound is off, tilted toward the left channel. I initially thought something was wrong with my sound system, and balancing didn't correct it. I think it's a mix problem; at least i'm comforted that someone else vouches for the problem as i thought i was losing my marbles. The other issue i have with this DVD is that there are some harsh edits (as they intercut some brief interview footage with the performances). THis show, though, is as good as the out-of-print Stone Pony DVD, and puts the focus on his songwriting as well as his chops. I really just wish that someday, someway (ha ha) we would get an electric trio DVD that really does Marshall's music justice in a full-band treatment - my first exposure to him was back around 82 on MTV, via the Saturday concert. I'd love to see something like that out on DVD."
