Subject: I have found a DVD that I think you would enjoy
A total rip-off; the only redeeming quality are the costumes
(1 out of 5 stars)
"This is actually a repackage of a previously released dvd, "Live in Africa". I was duped by the new colorful package, which made it appear of higher quality than the previous release. The dvd is still under 40 minutes long (packaging claims 40 minutes); the Pointer Sisters actually only perform for about 30 minutes; there are no bonuses -- in fact there isn't even a main menu! The disc just plays and then it's over. Despite the claims of a 5.1 remix, this is basically a mono soundtrack with audience noises added to the surround channels. The .1 channel is mixed so low that it's inaudible. I cranked my the sub level all the way up just to get some bass into the sound. What's left of the sound is a tinny mess. It doesn't even sound like it was recorded off of a soundboard. The Pointer Sisters look fabulous, and fans of their early Blue Thumb period material will like the song selection, but this dvd just falls short in too many areas to recommend it at all. Maybe for $... it would be worth it. Pioneer out to be ashamed to have let their name be put on this mess. I've never heard of the other company listed, "Gravity Limited.""
