Brace for a bad dvd

"When Amalia was alive I couldn't find a good video of her performances. I hoped that, as a tribute to her life, after her passing away Portugal (or someone else) would issue a good dvd. That hasn't happened yet.
There are just 2 dvds available, both pirate: one from Japan (bad video) and this one in NY (live at Town Hall) which is a bootleg from an old tape. I knew it was going to be bad but I was naïve...
I think the original filming was bad. Colours are ugly and the camera settings were inappropriate. The result is one every amateur would get with a video8 camera. The difference is that there have been several cameras present.
When in close-up, the image breaks in a bizarre way so all you hope for is that they zoom out and Amalia doesn't move too much.
The sound is fairly OK (for an amateur recording).
The menu is ridiculous, you cant even read the titles of the songs. A child experimenting with a shareware program could author a better dvd menu. Im not joking!
Even the cover is of bad taste and wrong doing: the photos are distorted and Amalia looks like having an egg for a head. I mention all these details (and u didn't even see the dvd label!...) in support for my affirmation: appalling dvd production!
I think you should buy this only if you miss watching Amalia and hope some day a full concert will be released in a pro quality.
