TOTO released its self-titled debut album in 1978, which hit the Top 10, sold two-million copies, and spawned the gold Top 10 single "Hold the Line." The gold-selling Hydra and Turn Back were not so triumphant, but Toto IV was a multi-platinum Top Ten hit, featuring the number-one hit "Africa" and the Top Tens "Rosanna, (about Rosanna Arquette) and "I Won't Hold You Back." At the 1982 Grammys, "Rosanna" became the award-winning Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Instrumental Arrangement with Vocal; and Toto IV won awards for Album of the Year, Best Engineered Recording, and Best Producer.

Why should I bother, would you say, if I already have several of their records (or even all of them) ? For lots of reasons. First, the sound is amazing. I played this on my system thinking that it would be fine. It's not, it's outstanding. Also, the filming is excellent. No blurry shots, no silly angles, no focus on who isn't playing. The production is irreproachable. Another reason you should get this is the incredible atmosphere surrounding the concert. I was trying to see the people in the crowd, and to my surprise, the people there range from 20 to 50 (and apparently a majority of 30ish). In the States, Toto doesn't get any airplay, doesn't perform much, and they seem to be viewed as fossils, remembrance of the west coast style of the 80's. Not so in Japan or Europe, where they are always welcome and fill in large theaters. Amazing, don't you think ?
On stage, you have Bobby Kimball with the rest of the band and two backup musicians. Bobby is like the rest of the regular members. With wrinkles, but in great shape. What a voice! Simon Phillips is probably second best to Jeff Porcaro, Paich shows he can play anything from classic to blues and funky (we already knew that), Mike Porcaro, even though he's not Verdine White, Stanley Clarke or Mark King, is very passionate in his playing, and Luke is... well, just in case you still wondered, the true leader of the band. Just look at how everyone is positioned. The lead singer is on a second row podium half of the concert and Luke is the one walking around.Read more ›
I was curious about this dvd so I bought it and was very surprised how good their live show is. This is one of those bands that sound better live. I'll probably still won't get all their cds. The performance here is excellent. Bobby Kimball's voice still sounds good. Steve's guitar playing is excellent. The video editing is for the most part normal. Not that annoying MTV style editing like on most live dvds these days. The sound is perfect. These guys just look like they're having fun. Especially on the tour documentary thing. They're always wild and having fun off stage. Especially Steve Lukather. They just seem like a bunch of nice guys if you would ever meet them in person. It's a definite must for the Toto fans, and I also recommend it for the curious, even if you don't like the big hits, you might like some of the less-known songs.

|why doesnt amazon write detail about Blu ray and HD||
You're right because I had Toto on HD-DVD and it had DTS-HD sound and then I sold it and replaced it on Blu-ray and it has just standard DTS.
