Three hours on ONE DVD = poor audio and video
10 December 2003 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

If (rumored) there is a TWO-DVD edition of this release, BUY IT!

I unwittingly purchased the SINGLE-DVD edition of this three-hour concert. I still love the Beatles and Paul; but, I'm amazed that he would release this wonderful music and commentary with such truly awful encoding (quality). I would think that an artist as wonderful as Sir McCartney would have more respect for his own music. At very best, you get NTSC-broadcast-TV quality. At the worst moments, it is no better than home video. BUT, if you like boomboxes and AM radio, I would tell you to buy this DVD, because it IS a wonderful compilation.

Inside the case they state "Dolby Digital"(tm). It is NOT DOLBY DIGITAL! It is ENCODED as DOLBY SURROUND(analog); but, I could not even detect any stereo imaging, much less a surround-sound stage.

Confession and disclaimer: I love beautiful music more than anyone I know. My stereo cost $6000. To me it was worth every penny. Sometimes beautifully-performed music (all the way from Rock To Bach) brings tears to my eyes. Unfortunately, ugly or poorly presented music is to my ears as fingernails scratching a chalkboard. Now that you know I'm quirky, I can tell you that after listening to the entire concert, I immediately broke this DVD out of sadness. If I had the power, I would break all of them. The Beatles and Paul deserve greater respect. I guess some suit thought he would save a buck by encoding three hours of beautiful music onto ONE DVD. In so doing, he turned something wonderful to crap.
