Great Concert Footage - Stupid Interruptions
G. Parnell | 08/04/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I never saw the VHS version of this concert. I wore out a dozen "Exit Stage Left" cassettes and my CD still gets a lot of play. Suffice it to say, "I love the music from this tour." The video footage was well captured and well done all the way around. No complaints there. But every song is interrupted with commentary and goofy visual effects that have nothing to do with the concert. For instance:

Geddy Lee on stage, "This a song about a car, this is called Red Barchetta." Then the audio and video are interrupted for some oration and a stupid, low quality visual. Fellas, that is tripe. Tripe. I want to see the concert, please. I want to listen to the music, please. Spare me the gimmicks. You are Rush. You do not need this kind of garbage. It detracts from the overall effect, which is to imagine yourself at the concert! When the DVD was made, the corny crap should have been canned. Most of the songs are corrupted in this manner. Thank God nobody pulled these pranks on the music album! Thank God. I am so sick of concert DVD's that fall into this same category. The only thing worse is the cursed "change the camera angle every second" effect.

Isn't anyone else interested in plain old concert footage? Am I the only one? I've been to hundreds of concerts. Can you imagine it? Geddy Lee in front of thousands of screaming fans, just beginning a song, then the lights and sound fade out, a voice comes over the P.A telling us what the song is about while some cheesy video footage is displayed. There would be a riot. People would trash the place. Why do DVD's of concerts have to be different? This is why I own very few concerts on DVD, and most of those have only been viewed once."

". . . I can retire my old, grainy VCR tape of this video. Looks great and sounds great on DVD. So glad Rush has decided to release this older material."
Rush at the peak of their career

"Great concert by a great band at the height of their career.
Great set list. Good sound for a concert recorded over 25 years ago.
Great price too!
Highly recommended for fans of prog/classic rock."
Finally, an old 80's concert video done RIGHT for DVD...

"I first saw this concert video back in 1982 on a grainy, mono VHS tape and it blew me away. Since then, I've also bought this on Laserdisc and while that did look better than the VHS, it still basically looked like crap. Well, not anymore. The remastered video here looks incredible and the sound, especially the DTS track, is astounding. Alex Lifeson actually had a hand in the 5.1 mix and if you have your rear levels set just right, the DTS sound will blow you away. And after all these years, the performance is still incredible. I have to say that if anything, this video has only improved with age. All three members of the band are absolutely at the top of their game here. And because of the new 5.1 soundtrack, you can now actually hear what the hell the guys are saying on the voiceovers. If you like this band, this is the only video you need. It would have been nice to have some extras on here and its always bothered me that a complete YYZ wasn't originally included but don't let that stop you - this is an absolute must-have."
