But this disc is really just a joke. The performance filmed (the 2000 New Year's show) wasn't even one of the band's best nights, for starters. Then you get partial songs (not even the best of the night), interrupted rudely by really worthless comments from the band members, with each band member basically re-wording the same ideas multiple times throughout the video. The live footage is far from brilliant either. Granted, I'm sure the band didn't have a U2-sized budget to film it, but it's visually among the weakest live concert DVD footage I've ever seen.
If you're expecting any kind of "at home" String Cheese live experience, you're probably going to be disappointed. Continual disruptions in the music, poor editing of song lengths, bad visual effects, and some questionable song choices to begin with (Howard and Turn This Around, but no Rivertrance? Come on) make this almost unwatchable.
Obviously the band got a little big-headed and opted to make a self-fufilling "documentary" instead of just releasing an uncut show on their first DVD. Save your money, go see a real SCI show, and hope that the band learns their lesson and a better DVD follows soon.
Secondly, I would not even begin to read the review that speaks of the Dead's mediocre albums and such. The guy says besides American Beauty and Working Man's Dead. Um...does Wake of the Flood, Blues for Allah, and Shakedown ring a bell? Probaly not because this "listener" and "follower" of the dead isn't one at all. He's a hippocrit and a head follower. (not a deadhead) I think this guy who rated this DVD one star should maybe dive a little deeper past the 11th grade knowledge of the grateful dead.
Anyways...great DVD for Cheese fans. If you're not a cheese fan, I don't know why you'd want to start to know them before knowing their music...so I guess I suggest this to Cheese fans.
And by the way...check a few Grateful Dead albums while you're waiting for your delivery.
