3.0 out of 5 stars Descent Video - LOUSY Sound June 6 2004
Format:DVD
I'm giving this DVD 3 stars when anything that comes from Black Flag should have 5. And those 3 stars are for video alone. Audio only gets one star. I have to agree with the guy from Sweden - the sound is glaringly sub-par and unforgivable. I got my copy at Fry's, and as I was standing there at the rack, looking at the cover and pondering whether I should drop $20 on what I knew was a glorified bootleg, I had only to remember the time I passed up getting it for $20 on video 10 years ago and missing out when I came back for it and it was gone. Any true fan should have this. That being said, here are some obsevations on various elements in the video:
THE LINEUP: This is the "Live '84" band lineup as is the setlist on this DVD performance. The Bill/Kira rhythm section, though not being as fierce and brilliant as the Biscuits/Dukowski/Cadena (see 84 demos bootleg) lineup, is more than adequate, even though when you see bill and kira live, they are not as energetic and animated as henry and greg, but this is really splitting hairs and and i know this.
VIDEO EDITING AND QUALITY: This is the best thing about this DVD. It's obvious that they had about 3 or 4 cameras, at least two or three on the stage and behind the drum riser, and all panning, and zooming in and out, never dwelling on one member too much. The editing was also fabulous from the standpoint that someone took the time to incorporate all the camera angles into a flowing whole complete with fades, cuts, cross fades, etc. I do have a bone to pick with the guy who edited some of the in between song stuff. Not cool. He even edited out the first half of bill and kira's classic intro to slip it in! NOT COOL. As for image quality goes, its about as good as a bootleg gets.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too bad... Oct. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
It's a real bummer that they had to mess up the sound on this DVD of this awesome band. Henry is way too loud and you can't hear Greg and Kira at all!
Another bummer is that they cut out the time in between songs, when the band interacts with the crowd. So you can't really call it a whole concert but just a bunch of cut up song's put together. The set arrangement could have been totally different and you wouldn't even know it.
On the up side: The video quality is good and you are actually watching Black Flag perform live!
On behalf of the sound and editing: it is truly a shame. Especially since live Black Flag performances on tape/DVD are so rare. Oh well...

1.0 out of 5 stars The guy who transfered this to DVD? Dec 31 2002
Format:DVD
Maybe the most God-Awfull Video to DVD Transfer I've ever seen.
While the video quality may be terrible, it's great compared to the sound. The sound is so bad, you cant watch this all the way through.
You cant hear the instruments at all!!!! All you hear is Vocals, literally!!!
What should have been an incredible document of a pioneering Punk band turns out to be a collossil mess.
At least we still have the music.
