nor show...Its one of the many formations that TOP has presented over quite a few decades, and i can honestly say thats part of the magic that make them one of America's most exciting Funkiest, Tightest Masters of their Style...I LOVED this performance..Albeit it may not be perfect, but who cares?? Its One very Hot performance with lots of jams, and dead on
TOP music...To answer the one reviewer's questions on why TOP or other acts put out so few dvds is simply this: Most people burn them reducing the profit margin that's supposed to go back to the musicians and producers of the performances..Same with cds...Bands like TOP make their money touring and doing session work...But what a sweet ride this one is.
If you are a True TOP of fan, its well worth the ride for 2hrs..!!
Ok that said I can't imagine this was released with the band's approval. It looks and sounds like someone burned this to DVD from an old VHS copy.
The playlist on the DVD case is SO far from being right it's pathetic. It's not even close to being in the correct order and doesn't include at least 3 songs. Not only that, the typos and misspellings of some tunes' titles is horrible. Hey whoever put this together...it's Soul VACCINATION not Soul Vacation...seriously???
And then the band photos on the cover don't depict the lineup at the time of filming. They are from a decade or more before.
That said....it's an ok addition to hard core TOP fans' collections. You get to see TOP before they peaked a year or so later when Tom Bowes, Lee Thornburg and Russ McKinnon joined.
The video and sound are ok considering the source material...at least as ok as it will get before someone with real skills gets their hands on this. I have no idea who actually owns the rights to this but if I were TOP I'd be wicked pissed at the poor quality of this release. I just hope they're collecting some residuals or something from this. Otherwise IMHO it's a rip-off.
