I've owned for years a VHS featuring part of this same concert, that I actually attended at the Zenith Concert Hall, 16 years ago. On this DVD, you can find nearly all the show that was dispatched during the Leisure Tour, without question the most explosive and creative tour Kid Creole ever made. This represents nearly 90 minutes, whereas the video only featured approx. 60 minutes of the show. The director of this video made a very good job, in re-creating the atmosphere of the concert that occured that day (the Zenith Concert Hall can hold between 4,000 and 6,000 people, according to seats configuration; and it was packed and very hot on that evening !) The picture quality is very good (better than on the video) and the sound quality, despite whatever has been said, is very good too (better than on the Hi-Fi Stereo VHS release, even though it is far from the level of some recent 5.1 productions). But this would still be a terrific show to see even with a bad sound and picture. Kid Creole means a lot of fun, energy, exceptional musicians (ah that horns section !)and some very original and perfectly synchronized choreography ! Don't hesitate and go for the buy, especially at that low price !

This was a favorite VHS video a few years ago. When it was released to DVD I snatched. Kid Creole's music is breezy and worldly, hot and cool. His big band, with great horns and percussion, works hard and you are going to want to dance. The focal point is the Kid, with his Panama zoot suit and flashy guitar, and of course the coconuts. Calling these three beauties back-up singers doesn't do them justice. Their synchronized dance moves are very sexy, and they never stop. This band gives it their all and they are obviously having a great time. The Kid's music is very melodic, very catchy, and you will have songs running through your head. The picture quality and sound are improved over the VHS video, but the production shows its age and doesn't quite have the polish of recent concert videos. But it also doesn't have irritating MTV-style shaky cam quick cuts. Overall a very fun and satisfying production. The DVD has songs not on the VHS video, a nice surprise. Recommended.

FIve years ago I would not have complained a bit about the sound and picture quality of this show but now with the standards being so high for everything, this appears poor in comparison.
Yes, the sound is mono and the picture is blurred and grainy, but no more that a VHS release. It still looks good and sounds OK. The band is really swinging and having a lot of fun up there on the stage.
I have a VHS copy of a UK performance which was made 20 years ago and is almost as good as this DVD release, but which company will pay the money to get it cleaned up and re-released?
My major problem with this DVD is the lack of extras. You get a (static) menu, a photo gallery (4 pictures from the show - isn't that what pause is for?) and a discography.
But all that said, for a budged DVD, it'll have the joint jumpin' and is well worth adding to your collection.

Verified Purchase
Many fans who already own the VHS version of this concert may be delighted as I was by the inclusion of several new songs. The real gem among these is a terrific version of "Say Hey" by the incredibly energetic Andy Hernandez--a true funk classic which alone makes this DVD worth the purchase.

This audio track on the DVD is mono. The audio quality is not much better than that of a cheap clock radio. Video is 4:3 (non-widescreen)
Don't pay more than $6 for this.
