5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - this is what a live concert DVD should be like, 5 Jun. 2003
I was at Potsdamer Platz 13 years ago, I bought the VHS but I rarely watch it. This DVD makes it easy to dip into the show, great menus with orchestral and ambient extracts. The sound mix by Nick Griffiths and Nigel Jopson is really the best concert sound I have ever heard, and the Wall show could have been made for surround sound, it's a real pleasure to listen to on my home theatre system. There's some great performances, in particular from Brian Adams and Joni Mitchell. Extras include an interesting documentary about war-torn Berlin, and how the wall came to be built. There's also some professionally put together interviews with Roger Waters, designer Jonathan Park, artist Gerald Scarfe and others - R. Waters tells about artists who wouldn't do the show and what went wrong on the night (a power cut - the artists stayed til 3 am to re-record some parts - I never knew, just wondered how the VHS was completed ... i'd already left on the show night!)
