The sound quality and song selection are excellent. They even end on a WHO classic (MY GENERATION) that Chad's original band (Toby Redd) used to perform at all the rock clubs in the Detroit area way back in the 70's (before I was even born). Rock on, Chickenfoot!
I agree with Hawks' review of the performance. All here are having a great time. Nice to see mature, top-notch musicians having fun on stage, not just ringing the cash register. Chickenfoot works a a band, with no whiff of it being a one-off side project. Hope they can continue with this line up for more releases.
Picture quality on blu-ray is excellent. Fine detail is well rendered. Editing / production is good. No rapid-fire scene changes, good camera time on all four artists, not just vocal and guitar like some dvds. Occasional lip-sync issues on the blu-ray, but I've seen much worse.
My only gripe is unconventional and inconsistent audio mixing. The mix appears to be a studio reconstruction recorded from the sound board feed rather than a concert mic'd soundtrack. The vocal, bass and drums are spread across the front/center channels, guitar in all channels, with the guitar emphasized and delayed in the back channels for a surround effect rather than a typical concert band-in-front, audience-in-back approach. Most of the time you hear Joe more from the rear channels than the front, even with the delay. The crowd sounds are often stronger in the front(!) channels than the rear. Sounds OK, but odd since it's a sound field you'll never hear at a concert. (It's almost as if Joe was playing at the opposite end of the venue with the crowd in the middle.) I've got 50+ dvd/blu-ray concert discs and never have heard this kind of mix. Not necessarily bad, but it is unusual.
Also, the instrument balance is occasionally uneven. On one track, Michael's bass is audible on the DTS mix, but disappears on the 5.1 Dolby Digital mix. Kickdrum is excessive on some tracks, normal on others.
Overall, I'm delighted to see Chickenfoot on blu-ray - I wish other established artists could get more blu-ray releases (e.g.: Bruce Hornsby-Three Nights on the Town), but often get dvd only. I'm grateful that they spent the money they did on this production, given the market.
Let's all hope for more blu-rays like this!
