When I grew up I worshipped this mans music and to see him possibly for the last time on the screen at times blurry; then clear as a bell seems to me a travesty. The main concert was possibly acceptable but the after hours thing was a shame!! I have two video's of ROY and in both the camera work was just horrendous! Where do they find these guys? Is not his wife the overseer of his work? Shame on who gave the nod to this release.
Oh no! What a shame! The extras and the idea of the remastering excitement themselves would be justification enough to repurchase this masterpiece of music history. I can see now, having listened to this new version to celebrate its 30th anniversary, its previous incarnation done by the master engineer Elliott Scheiner in DTS Master Audio on Blu-ray, that it needed absolutely no 'upgrading' whatsoever. Other than adding the very interesting extras it is such a sad shame to hear the really sub standard remastered audio to the point I have to say I would not recommend buying this 30th anniversary version as the audio is so subpar compared to the Elliott Scheiner version it is a total disappointment. The audience and your presence in the audience has completely disappeared. I mean disappeared. Right down to the stage manager telling the light technician to "bring the lights up" in the left side surround at the very beginning of the show and then firmly planting you in the middle of all the music royalty that was in the audience and that building that night. It is gone. Oh what a shame. The only thing I could recommend is to Roy's Boy's! Go back (I can't imagine you haven't) and listen to the bluray version DTS Master hear it on your best equipment and redo it with ELLIOT SCHEINER! It is too important an event for it not to be published at its best. I even hate the idea of publishing this comment because Orbison was among the best their ever was and this show and this band and it's technical presentation WAS the best of any music video ever released. The previous bluray version by Scheiner aurally and for that matter visually was plain and simple far far superior. You were literally there. Oh what a night oh what a band oh what a show. Roy Orbison was never better and the audio presence in that building has been completely lost in this recording. It was one of the best recordings I had ever heard. I really hate to say this but don't buy this one buy the original Blu-ray version. The extras in the 30th anniversary version are just not as important as the production values of the original bluray. I was so disappointed. Get all the audio in the previous version. Roy's Boy's please go back and do it again.
The two stars refers not to the great Big O the music is fantatsic but to the cd itself. I appear to have been sent a used cd. There was no cellaphane packaging and the cd case was damaged inside. Poor show Amazon.
