Not Hair of the Dog, but 'SNAZ!

"First I'd like to stress two points:
a) this DVD contains exactly the same material as "Live in Texas" DVD released in 2004 (the only difference is the cover with a new name, Deadline/Cleopatra did not even bother to make a new DVD menu and put this new name into video itself) - you are welcome to read my review about that DVD
b) this is not "Hair of the Dog Live", it's rather "The Fool Circle Live" or "'SNAZ" with material from 6-piece band 1981 USA tour (the manufacturers are just using more attractive name to sell the same stuff one more time).
And now some quotes from the cover:
"... this awesome footage has been digitally remastered and enhanced ..."
"Special features: Never before seen footage"
Unfortunately, it is not true. This is a simple transfer from old original VHS tape without any remastering, nothing was added (or enhanced) - it is the same material.
This footage was released first on VHS tape, and then on "Live in Texas" DVD - so it can hardly be called "never seen before".
4. Hearts Grown Cold
6. Let me be your Leader
7. Dressed to Kill
8. Pop the Silo
9. Love Hurts
10. Hair of the Dog
11. Expect no Mercy
12. Shapes of Things
And one more thing for Deadline/Cleopatra: the last song is called "Shapes of Things" composed by the Yardbirds members, and not "Shapes of things to Come" as they wrote at the cover.
As far as I can see, all contribution from Deadline/Cleopatra during production of this DVD is the new cover (as well as free poster and a sticker)!"

"I originally bought this when it came out in the 80's on VHS the sound quality was much better as was the video. In my opinion much quality was lost in the transfer how that can be in this day and age is a wonder. To buy this you are buying the cover art other than that there is nothing new."

"I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this DVD and was majorly disappointed when i heard it. The sound quality is terrible, the makers of the DVD say that they 'cleaned up' the sound quality, so I dread to think what it was like before. Maybe, I got a really bad copy, but I bought it new. I look forward to buying another Nazareth DVD that has good sound."
