Way too much yapping on this dvd for me (especially the promoters, fumbling with their notes onstage while yelling the most inane things). Too much gap between songs, and the quality is so-so. His one song on Reggae on the River (dvd) is better than any of the tunes on this one, unfortunately. I wouldn't recommend it, but I still watch it from time to time.

Pretty Solid DVD, 10 Songs total. However, I was disappointed that a few of my favorite songs weren't in it. Pressure Drop, Broadway Jungle, Reggae got Soul, Bam Bam aren't in here. Kind of a bummer, but this looks like the only DVD that Toots has out there. So you know what they say...Beggars can't be choosers.

For a reggae dvd, which are usually low-budget unless they're from some mega-star like Ziggy Marley or the like. Customer Scott says there is a lot of in-between-songs banter but it's only 30 secs at the beginning and some 15 secs mid-concert, hardly ¨a lot of yapping¨ but hey ! to each their own.

The band mixtures equal doses of reggae,ska and a LOT of soul, making it an interesting departure from the ¨pure roots¨. It's shot at an outdoor stage (you can see cars on the street behind the stage). The audience is ecstatic and there is a heterogeneous mixture of people; white, asians, skins, young, old and...a few black. Yes, back in the day even Marley complained reggae music had not taken among his own race, which were to whom his message was directed to, and this has gotten worse these days (but great biz anyway). The show is fantastic; perfectly filmed and edited and the energy just fine for 2 guitars because they could have been a tad louder in the mix.

Picture : Awesome in 4:3 aspect ratio (normal for '97); it shows the label got hold of the master, not a scraggy direct from VHS transfer as is usual. Only minor quibble is a red hue that has to be corrected with the tint control. Pic bitrate hovers around an adequate 6Mbps.

Sound : lossy AC3 perfectly mixed, I could have used some more bottom end but with my sub it was rotund if a bit dry (soundboard ?)
