Audio quality SUB-par
David Brammer | USA | 08/05/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Not to detract from Ms. Jackson's incredible talent, whoever created this DVD was asleep at the wheel.

The audio quality is... well, horrible. Absolutely, horrible.

On the back, it says "Audio remastered at 'SoundScape'". I will watch for that name and never buy anything remastered by 'SoundScape'.

I hope this is helpful to someone, I don't want anyone buying this DVD thinking they are going to get excell..., not excellent, just average audio quality would have been OK with me!!!"
Should be good;

"I listen to Mahalia Jackson Christmas music every winter and I just cant get enough of her.She has an good voice and can really sing so this dvd should include some of her best Christmas songs icluding;O Come All Ye Faithful,Joy To The World,Hark The Herald Angels Sing,Away in an Manger,and Sweet Little Jesus Boy.If thats on here I dont know though than this would be an real classic and would definetly spice up the holiday seasons!"
