quite simply this is the best music dvd release ive ever heard, the DTS sound is without equal on anything else ive ever heard, blew me away. The concert itself is equally as good, this a highly charged performance from a band at their peak, Ritchies playing is without equal, its almost as if he is demonically possessed the speed he plays that guitar at, Dio's vocals are the best ive ever heard him sing and the whole band come together to deliver amazing white knuckle versions of the man on the silver mountain, long live rock and roll, kill the king, 16th century greensleeves etc. my only criticism is that they dont perform stargazer, why? even so this is still the best tenner you'll ever spend on a concert dvd, a big well done to eagle for releasing this and on such an excellent presentation with that DTS sound. All we need now is a full unedited release of rainbow headlining at Monsters of Rock 1980 with Graham 'bring the mushy peas out' Bonnet, that show was filmed by the bbc and aired on tv in a 30min edit missing out classics such as since you been gone ( recorded that night and released on the final vinyl album) and an extremely good live rendition of stargazer ( released on the old Monsters of Rock LP). The footage exists so hopefully Eagle can restore that show to dvd the way they did with this concert, that would really make my day. Long live rock and roll!
