Great Music...Drunken Cameraman Perhaps?

"I love Los Enanitos Verdes. I try to go to their concerts every time they come to Puerto Rico. DVD contains a great selection of their songs, including 5 tracks not included in the CD version, but that's the only few good things about this DVD production.
For me, this DVD it's nothing but a a big disappointment. Too many flaws for my liking. For starters, 5.1 audio is not the best you could get. It's merely OK. Color and lighting suck big time. The concert looks too dark and opaque giving it the appearance of a bootleg movie. The biggest disappointment of them all is the TERRIBLE camera work. I mean the crew must have been drunk or the production team just hired amateurs. All that jerking gave me a headache, literally. I tried to keep focused, but I was unsuccesful. I ended up turning the TV off and listening to the music through my Home Theatre system.
Bottom line, I can only give this DVD 3 out of 5 stars only because the song selection is good and it still has more songs than the CD version (for about the same price). If you can live with having a DVD for the sole purpose of listening to it, then go ahead and buy it.
What was visualized now is reality

"I was wondering if some day I was ever gonna listen to the live version of "Del Cairo A Paris", good, one worry less. I heard about this DVD but thought it was only containing the tracks from the CD. Nop, it had five extra tracks that were omitted from the original recording because of space issues, I think. Most of the tracks were recorded in Tijuana, Mexico and some right here in Phoenix, AZ which is kind of fustrating having missed this concert that was FREE but now I know what I missed, and when I drive through Central I get pissed knowing a great concert took place there.
Felipe Staiti's performance is not to be missed here, he plays pretty good, a good solo-er and he sings too, check out the outro solo in Lamento Boliviano, it's breath-taking. Cantero's coordination when singing and playing bass is unique. Finally we get to Daniel, ehhn, I don't know, he can play, right, but he should learn some new styles, I'm sure he can do better, if he can learn it'll benefit Los Enanos and their public.
Good Concert, though."
