Are we European or American?
on 17 November 2010
This set is a very good one as regards its performance content, but what they don't tell you, until you see it on the case, is that the DVD is in the dreaded NTSC format, not PAL.
Well, excuse me, but are we not in Europe? The package is made in the EU. Granted, Blondie is an American group, but heck, these performances were all recorded in Britain, please note, BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation.
I am told by people more knowledgeable than I, that PAL is a superior format to NTSC. If so, then this video material has been downgraded, presumably so that good ol' Chrysalis can sell the package over the Pond without having to make two varieties.
VERY DISAPPOINTING, albeit, as I've said, superb performance content.
