Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live From Texas [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Given that the promo videos were so crucial to the Top's breakthough in the UK it's remarkable that we have not had an 'in concert' showing before now.
The quality? Well, the music is fabulous: you know that. The picture? I recently bought a 42" plasma: this and 'Zulu' have convinced me it *was* money well-spent. If I want to demonstrate the benefits of BR to friends, this disc is what I shall show them, whether they are fans or not. There is a lot going on in terms of stage-lighting and it is all captured beautifully by this transfer. If you've ever wondered just how many whiskers Billy and Dusty have, on this I'd swear you can count them.
It sounds marvellous too, and I have yet to get the audio separates I have promised myself. I don't know for *certain* that the mix is different to the CD, which I was playing long before I got this, but I always felt the vocals and lead were slightly 'down' on the CD. No such concerns here.
Now, if only the band would sanction the release of the 'Rockpalast' show from Essen 1980 and the Old Grey Whistle Test appearance from the same year. Oh, and their appearance on 'Later... With Jools Holland' in 1996. Come on, boys: you've already given us 'The Tube'.
