Buy for sound quality, not for picture
on 6 July 2010
People don't seem to realise that the best thing about music Blu-rays is that due to the additional space available on the disc the soundtrack does not have to be compressed. This menas that the sound quality is considerably higher than DVD's. However unless you have a good sound system you are not going to be able to appreciate the difference.
If you have a good cinema surround sound system then this is well worth the money. The picture quality is poor, but it is worth remembering this was filmed almost 30 years ago in non-studio conditions. The sound quality is excellent, even when turned up loud; this is why I bought it. If you want the pleasure of hearing Dire Straits in the best possible quality, whilst also being able to enjoy seeing them perform on stage then look no further than this Blu-ray.
