4.0 out of 5 stars Beware of tacky special effects! Sept. 30 2003
By A Customer
I won't go into a lot of detail on this one..... suffice it to say that the performances are great, Jerry's playing is stellar and he manages not to fumble up too many lyrics. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is that whomever is responsible (Monterey Video?) continues to see fit to interject those awful, uninspiring, cheesy special effects. Why they insist on doing this is beyond me. This has become increasingly annoying after viewing the VFTV series. Most of us actually want to see the concert footage itself (of which the picture quality here is fabulous, when said effects aren't ruining it). NOTE TO THOSE RESPONSIBLE: us Deadheads don't need any help with visual enhancements - we can govern that all by ourselves if we so choose. Stay out of it! I can only hope that the upcoming 'Closing of Winterland' dvd has been more tastefully composed. Peace all - over and out.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought everyone might like to know... May 24 2004
I read a recent review of this DVD in which the reviewer gave the DVD a rating of four stars instead of five, the reason being that they couldn't appreciate the added special effects that took away from the performance itself. I recently read an interview with David Lemieux, the current archivist of the Vault, and I thought everyone might like to know, especially the reviewer of four stars, that the footage contained in all the View From The Vault films are represented exactly as they were during the concert. In other words the images that you see on your TV screen, are an exact replica of the images that were displayed on the monitors during the concert, added effects and all. With that being said, I think it is rather cool that the concert goers of these five particular shows showcased in the View From The Vault series, as well as the millions that missed out on the experience of these particular dates, are able to re-create the exact visual stimulation that took place during these performances, and furthermore will continue to live on in homes around the world until the end of time. Happy viewing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great shows, great release,but... April 11 2003
Ive been looking forward to this release for awhile. Two stadium shows from the "Dylan and The Dead" tour and the boys came through big time for these performances. I was up front for most of the Oakland show and this this disc brings back memories. Jerry was really on for this night, and it's fun to see him playfully start a "Funiculi Funicula" warm-up to start the show. They then get serious with a hot "Jack Straw" into "Mississippi-Half Step" opener.The DVD has three songs edited out that do appear in the companion cd set. "Friend of the Devil" and "Me &My Uncle/Big River" are no great loss, but Id rather hear FOTD than When Push Comes to Shove" any day.
The 2nd set is solid throughout. The highlight has to be a great "Uncle John's Band" out of space(Jerry finally gets the lyrics right on the last verse) into a INTENSE "Dear Mr. Fantasy" that has Brent and Jerry feeding off each other. No ballads for the rest of the show, just balls to the wall rockers.At the end of the set everyone was psyched knowing we still had a whole mysterious Dylan/Dead set still to go. Unfortunately on this disc it is not to be. No Bob to be found here. Perhaps he was too embarrassed by his haggard performances, who knows. Regardless, it was musical history and deserves to be included. Still, the best VFTV release yet. Anaheim is hot too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't sweat the cheesy effects...Very solid shows July 14 2004
I was looking for my first Dead DVD and I kept reading the same thing in all the reviews, that they were weak because of the graphics and effects. Well, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised: the effects aren't half as bad as I expected, and more importantly, the shows are really good. Great video and audio quality, great setlists, and overall solid performances from the boys.
1. Bobby on My Brother Esau, Hell in a Bucket, and Throwing Stones
2. Jerry's playing on Deal and Scarlet
3. Iko Iko
4. Shakedown
This DVD is great, and if it's any indication of the quality of other GD/VFTV releases, I'll be buying more.

5.0 out of 5 stars another great vault release... plus 5.1 sound! April 22 2003
By A Customer
Volume four from the "View From The Vault" series features two excellent '87 shows with fantastic set lists and strong playing. Like the other DVDs, the video is taken from the "cameras for the people in the back rows". The band plays really well at both shows.
The sound quality is fantastic. They used a dolby digital 5.1 (as well as 2.0) mix, and it pays off in dividends.
Even if you could "take or leave" the visuals of the band, having two great '87 shows mixed in 5.1 for Amazon's fantastic price would make this DVD a must have for any Deadhead, and a great introduction for anyone just getting into the band.
Highest of recommendations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great
This is the first Dead Video that i ever bought, and im quite impressed. They did such a great job on sugar magnolia on this DVD that song alone was worth the price. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The effects are the original screen effects from the show
I believe they took the footage from the screens that were from the show itself,it's what the people saw that joyous day.That's why the effects are there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound and video
This is 100x better than the first few awkward ventures at a video series to parallel the Dick's Picks and From the Vault audio series. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Dead DVD
The best from the set. Very well played. The only downside is the filming, and those HORRIBLE special effects. Beware of them when you get this. Anyway, all in all this is great. Read more
