This review is from: GIPSY KINGS - TIERRA GITANA &LIVE IN CONCERT (DVD)
This DVD consists of the PBS doc on the Gipsy Kings, Tierra Gitana, and a live concert at the Greek Theatre in 1990. The former is probably worth the price, even though much of the video appears to have come from PAL format tapes that were not terribly well converted. The story's the thing here, and the fascinating history and the vintage video from the Reyes' early lives and travels with their famous father is very interesting.
The concert doesn't live up to expectations. The video is of very low quality--some shots have blown-out highlights--and the audio sounds as though it was rerecorded in the men's room at Howard Johnson's.
For me to dis any Gipsy King's offering is about as likely as sunshine in Oregon in January. If you are willing to pay the price to see the PBS doc, you won't be disappointed, but if you're also in it for the concert experience, I'd give this a pass.
