Could have been better if digitally mastered

"The picture was a bit too grainy and indistinct for full enjoyment (judged aagainst newer DVDs, please don't think that the quality is so "bad" as to be unwatchable, it just could be much better). The quality of the 10 year-old VHS that I borrowed from the library was hardly worse.The musical tracks are very good and the images of Vermont are wonderful. They deserve better treatment.Windham Hill, please digitally re-master this (preferably in 5.1) and I would be willing to plunk down the purchase price all over again.As it stands, buy it and enjoy it as unfortunately, this is the only way we can enjoy this wonderful collection (at least for now)."
I bought this for the memories

"With todays graphics, video cards, cameras, DVD players, television sets etc., this release cannot hold up to the standards--the resulting resolution is fair at best (I can remember way back when I used the VHS rendition of this and the "Winter" release as video/audiophile standard test tapes). But the magic of this and the "Winter" release is the scenery and the interpolation of the music along with it.The new age music and the very beautiful scenery is just what is needed upon your laptop if you are on a long flight or if you live in a concrete and steel city (to remind you what trees and snow and peace is all about)."
