The highlight of this release is the LPCM 2.0 stereo track, which blows the Dolby Digital 5.1 track clean out of the water. In addition the LPCM stereo track is 24-bit, so it is of higher fidelity than the CD, which is not often the case with DVD releases.
Most DVD releases still include a Dolby stereo track, which is lossy compression just like .mp3 - fortunately under the SonyBMG umbrella we're lucky enough to see an uncompressed 24-bit track. To put this in perspective:
Dolby Digital 5.1 (DVD) = 448 Kbps
CD 2.0 stereo (CD) = 1,411 Kbps
24/48 2.0 PCM (DVD) = 2,304 Kbps
That's right, the 2.0 PCM track on the DVD is almost twice the fidelity of the CD release.
If you have a nice home theatre system you might wonder why the 5.1 track might not be the better choice, but do yourself a favour and set your system to either DIRECT, STEREO or 5/6/7 CHANNEL STEREO and experience the difference in quality of the PCM track over the Dolby track. You will no doubt appreciate it and never select the Dolby 5.1 track again!
The only other DMB release to feature a PCM track, also 24-bit, is the Central Park Concert, which should hopefully see a Blu-ray release sometime in the future complete with a 5.1 PCM 24-bit track. The 2.Read more ›

Dave talks between songs, but not too much - and hey, we must all admit that his sometimes incoherent ramblings are interesting and kinda amusing. He's happy during this concert, and you can tell! Another song to note is the newer "Cornbread" which I constantly replay; and "Two Step" is always a great - his *prologue* to this one on the DVD is particularly moving, singing about his love & emptiness. I could go on, but I won't because you need to stop reading and order this.
