"The one star rating is not for the quality of the performance in the DVD, but rather because this is a repackaging of the "Best of Musikladen" Hall & Oates performance.
Nowhere in this DVD does it state where this supposed concert took place, and the cover photo is not of anything contained in the DVD.
If you are a big Hall & Oates fan you probably already have this DVD. It's been offered twice before with different cover art. At least in the past both versions stated that it was the Musikladen TV series performances.
I feel ripped off for buying something that I already own, when the package art ??intentionally?? makes no note of details of the show."

"THIS CONCERT COULD HAVE BEEN GOOD.BUT WITH ONLY 9 SONGS,IT IS A RIPOFF.ONLY ONE THIRD OF THE CONCERT IS INCLUDED.WHY?.. THE SONG SELECTION IS GOOD.WOULD HAVE COULD HAVE MIGHT HAVE,IF NOT SO SHORT ON SONGS.AS LONG AS CUSTOMERS PURCHASE ALBUMS,WITH AS LITTLE AS FIVE TO TWELVE SONGS,THE RECORD PRODUCERS WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS.THIS WAY YOU BUY PART ONE TWO OR THREE,PAY 3 TIMES AS MUCH FOR MATERIAL THAT COULD BE RELEASED ON ONE ALBUM.A BUY OR HOLD IS UP TO YOU ."

"Yes, this is a repackaging of the shows from Germany, but what a treasure!
Especially exciting for me was the band. Eddie Zane (drummer) worked with Foghat. Stephen Dees (bass) was a protege of Daryl's for awhile--Daryl produced an album for him. But, for me the treat here is Todd Sharp on guitar. This guitar genius was all of 19 or so at the time of these shows. He went on to play for Bob Welch and Christine McVie (both formerly of Fleetwood Mac), Rod Stewart and then Delbert McClinton. He also worked with Mick Fleetwood.
The whole period feel to the shows is great, but just watching the interaction of the band is awesome, particularly on "Johnny Gore". I saw this band many times and to see this show brings back lots of fun memories."
Good Show. Needs More Music!

"Nice performance from Daryl and John in their shows where they still played some "Abandoned Luncheonette" (Yes there are more songs than "She's Gone")and the "War Babies" albums.
There are different packages of this DVD out, so check the song list before buying. You might end up getting duplicates."
