It is really about time this was released on DVD. The quality etc is just as expected from my old VHS and the old audio CD. It is always great seeing Joe Pass play, he was the best.
Bad news. For some reason you can get this same DVD at amazon.uk and it has Live in Montreaux 1977 as well. I bought it several months ago. You would need an all region player, but at least you get those amazing solo blues Joe did on that date. Most cats don't know that many of the >$25 DVD players (polaroid at Circuit City) are all region. Being Chinese made, they just want to make sure their product works and sells, they are region free!
Who knows, maybe they will release the 77 date with extras, but I doubt it.
