5.0 out of 5 stars Finally available, but somethings wrong here., 31 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kate Bush - Live At Hammersmith Odeon 1979 (DVD)
I'm glad to have bought this DVD but I'm convinced this is a homemade collection. It's a mix of the xmas special and the tour. The quality is at best on a par with good VHS but never as ropey as Youtube. It works, the sound is great and as far as I know this is the only way to get a DVD of young Kate live.
Even though it's of questionable legality and no real presentation, I am very very glad I bought this. I accept the picture quality is dated (being kind there) but I love the sound, no polish or over production. Just so glad to have an acceptable copy of these live songs. No more Youtube conversions. This is all on Youtube but the quality here is much better.
So long as you accept the old school picture quality and lack of flashy menus/options etc then this can't be recommended highly enough for any true fan. Especially as there's no other means of getting even this quality. Seen the old live VHS (had it years ago) for bonkers money on ebay.
The musicians deserve a mention. It must have been a pinnacle of their careers to play with Kate. They're as good as she is. It's all sounds amazingly well played, and obviously the same goes for the singing.
James And The Cold Gun live just never gets boring...

It is indeed a "homemade" collection. or putting it another way, a bootleg. Amazing that amazon allows these to be sold openly.
