Movie Reviews

Surprisingly poor audio mix for a DVD! Save your money!
Bill Porter | San Francisco, CA | 03/06/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Has anybody noticed the poor audio on this DVD? It's horribly compressed!Why would they use the audio mix from the original video as opposed to the mix that was used on the accompanying 2CD set release of "Eric Clapton - 24 nights"? The CD-Set has a quite superb sound, but the DVD mix is almost unlistenable, everything is buried in the middle.For all purposes, DVD gives you the technology to make it sound even better than on the audio CD.WB hasn't even remixed the sound to Dolby Digital, that's how much care has been put into this (the picture could be better, too).I can only conclude this must have been one of the first DVD releases. Maybe I'm just spoiled by "Hell freezes over" but IMHO WB should correct this flaw![And one more thing WB: The days of 90 min. videos should be over; this release could have been expanded to double its size given the material available].A thorough disappointment!"
Clapton at His Best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eric Clapton, in concert at the Royal Albert Hall, on DVD: What more is there for a Clapton fan? The 24 Nights Concert is the greatest concert Clapton has ever given. His solos are unbelievable (esp. on "Bad Love" and "Old Love") and the various arrangements (5 Piece Band - Phillinganes, East, Ferrone, Collins; Blues Band - Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Jamie Oldaker, et al; 9 Piece Band - Phillinganes, East, Ferrone, et al; and Orchestra) add interesting depth to Clapton's already strong music. Naturally, such a superior collection of music and an assemblage of musical talent is conveyed to the viewer with the latest and greatest of audio and video technology. The superb video quality and the LPCM audio (no Dolby Digital or DTS compression here!) brings out all Clapton's music and talent has to offer. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone with even a slight interest in Clapton and his music. It is a truly great work."
The video editors don't get it
Dave | United States | 03/09/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Like the others here, I wanted to see ERIC. I already have the CD - which is great. The video, however, doesn't always have the same exact version as the CD. Case in point - the best guitar solo on the CD, Pretending, is totally different on the video, and in fact much worse. What are the people who make these videos smoking? Just show use the musicians, hold still with the camera, and DON'T DO ANYTHING. Every time I watch it, I come away disappointed at what could have been."
Great concert, but bad production.
Jarle Presttun | Grimstad, Norway | 11/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The wonderful 'Badge' isn't on this video, and a part of the solo in "Sunshine Of Your Love" is removed. 'Whatch Yourself', 'Have You Ever Loved A Woman' and 'Worried Life Blues' are the highlights, with Buddy Guy and Robert Cray on backing guitars. If you want an EC-video, then buy 'Unplugged'. Buy '24 Nights' on a CD."
