2.0 out of 5 stars buyer beware, 8 April 2006
This review is from: Bill Hicks Live: Relentless [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
True to say that this is a great and iconic performance that had me watching open mouthed when it was first broadcast (my first experience of Hicks) but, that said, this is indeed a disappointment.
Not only is the quality of the image in part of the show ghastly (as noted by a previous reviewer and only acknowledged by the makers of the DVD once you put the disc on) but it is quite heavily and clumsily edited - 60 minutes as opposed to the 75 quoted on the sleeve. The VHS version is superior if you can still find it.

I brought the VHS version of Relentless because of a couple of reviews saying it was better than the DVD version, but it's not, it's identical. The running time is the same (61 mins approx). I played the two together, and it's exactly the same show with the same editing. The only fault with the DVD is that one chapter has had to be sourced from a VHS copy due to the master tapes not being available. If anyone buys a VHS edition of Relentless thinking it will be better, then they will be disappointed. Buying a VHS copy of Relentless will be pointless if you already have a DVD player.
