3.0 out of 5 stars almost..., Nov. 20 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: No Fixed Address (Audio CD)
a good Nickelback rock album with two very bad songs;
"she keep me up" & "got me runnin'round" pop and rap
don't belong here, maybe looking for new fan's but
probably loosing more real rock fan's overall.
please next time release a live album or fill it with
great classic rock covers instead...guess you learn by
your mistake. don't blow your next album; new producer,
back to basic and rock it!

3.0 out of 5 stars encore and encore..., Oct. 30 2014
Well, another remastered re-edition; bought it in the 70' in Lp,
bought in the mid 80' when cd started, bought the remastered Box set 1
and Box set 2 in early 90'...and still got them all. So!
I'm not buying them again anymore...! it has to stop and same thing with
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc...
Jimmy Page and George Marino digitaly remastered them at
sterling sound in New York in may 1990 with the original analogue master
tape to put it on a digital master (can't play to much with old master tapes).
Download iTunes and mp3 are high-infidelity not Hi-Fi sound; keep that in mind!

The new 2014 remastered is base on those digital master anyway.
The extra alternative take/ mix etc...is not so much of interest;
except on Led Zep 1 for the live concert in 1968 never publish before.
They will re-released them one by one, and after that put out a new
Box set again and again...love to have their bank account! Cheers.

4.0 out of 5 stars U2 music vs cd format, Oct. 15 2014
Well here it is physicaly...the music is U2, so expect it to sound like U2 songs,
no more, no less; it's very enjoyable and U2 fans will like it as is.
Will it be memorable or become a classic? probably not, but...time will tell.

The format is what's bugging me; the whole cd + Lucifer's hands/ the cristal ballroom
should have been part of the cd all together and the two alternative version /mix
included as bonus tracks= 72:41 total time for cd release.
the 22:00 acoustic sessions should have been offer for free download on iTunes.

Lots of artist offer a two cd version format so they can grab more money out of fans!
most fans will buy the deluxe edition for $2/ $3 more anyway...just like me :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank's Johnny..., July 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2008: Live In Spain (DVD)
Johnny left us this month...and so the blues community,
but he leave us with an huge heritage of his unique Texan
blues.

This dvd by Immortal is a tv broadcast with(WATB)logo, from
the Jazzaldia Festival in San Sebastian, Spain on july 22,2008.
quality of picture and sound is substandard, but still enjoyable;
not much dvd's of Johnny out there anyway.
Johnny is in fragile health and is tempo as slow down with it,
but that's no reason for him...to blow you away with is guitar playing!
bought it for "Red House" cover from Jimi Hendrix...so glad to have it.
(wish that Stevie Ray Vaughan would have cover it before is death too...)

3.0 out of 5 stars Avo Session Basel live in Switzerland 2008, April 22 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: In Concert [Import] (DVD)
copie from the live dvd recording of that concert; It is made in Argentina
with basic technology 2.0 dolby digital sound, 4X3 picture, NTSC region free,
dvd 5 disc.
Excellent concert from Jethro Tull 15 songs, professionnal picture shot but
sub-standard bootleg vhs quality and stereo sound only...too bad!

2.0 out of 5 stars Gee...!, March 22 2014
This review is from: Live at Great Woods [Import] (DVD)
that was supposed to be the final and complete release of that famous concert
without interview in the middle of the main feature show...well it is, plus "Jessica"
that was finaly added to the concert that was missing originaly...So what's wrong?

The sound for God sake is in PCM stereo...! the original first dvd released was in
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround and very good quality...!!! the only thing that I can see
here is that new dvd was taken directly from the old 12 inch LaserDisc, because the
picture as not been remaster either; in other words; this is not an Eagle Entertaiment release!
this is also a 4:3 old format picture and not made for 16:9 High Definition blu-ray release either!
so, save your money if you already have the VHS, LaserDisc or the first DVD release;
not worth the re-investment...bad job Sony Music!
