The Final Tour on blu ray by the Shadows is the definitive video showcase of the entire career of the group from UK, from the Shadows on EMI, then, even 2 songs during the era of Marvin, Welch & Farrar, plus Hank Marvin and the Shadows on Polydor, plus some of Cliff Richard's hits, as sung by Hank and the boys. There are 42 songs in this 3 hour concert. All the hits are there.

I also have the original standard DVD release in 2004. This blu ray disc is in 1080i at 1.78:1. The video on blu ray is marginally better than the original standard DVD, but the main difference is in the audio. Here, the DTS HD Master Audio is far far more superior than the original DTS, with much clearer and tighter sound...no comparison. The sound is simply superb!

Hank Marvin is still at his best, one of the best guitarists in the world. Bruce Welch and Brian Bennett were also in top form. (Please note that in 2009 release of Cliff and the Shadows Reunion DVD, Brian Bennett was in much poorer form). Mark Griffiths (who replaced Alan Jones in the 80s) and Cliff Hall were also great.

We have a strong International Shadows fan club in Toronto (with visits from Bruce Welch and Cliff Hall). I know of friends who had the fortune to see Cliff and the Shadows perform live in 2009 in UK. But for the less fortunate few, like us, this Shadows Final Tour blu ray disc is an excellent substitute. Play it loud...you won't regret it. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Al hits and more!!! April 25 2010
By SYIU
Format:DVD
It's all here, hits and great album cuts. Hank Marvin is in fine form and Bruce Welch is such a big part of The Shadows' sound. In a perfect world they would have rewarded us a Christmas tune!!! We fans have waited so long for a Shadows Christmas album...50 years and counting!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last... Sept. 4 2009
Format:DVD
I was a fan of the Sahadows when I was a teen and over the years, but I never could see them in a show.
At last, this was my last chance and the DVD is perfect: a lot of titles and a perfect sound take. It seems so easy for them ! A great pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic! April 23 2010
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of Cliff Richard and The Shadows for many years. The CD and DVD were so incredible! The sound was even better than the original recordings! I believe Cliff and the boys are happy to be together and their sound is fantastic!

This DVD is in blue-ray. The visual and audio parts are good. The performance is good to watch and good to keep a copy for collection.
