This is the only DMB DVD that you will find that has such songs as "Bartender", "Digging a Ditch", "Angel", "JTR", "So Right", "The Space Between", "If I Had It All". In my opinion this DMB DVD has the "rarest" collection of songs you will find in comparison to their other video releases. It's nice to have some variety I think. So for the rarity alone, this DVD is a must have for any fan.
Make no mistake though, just because there are rarer songs doesn't mean this isn't a quality release. I have watched this performance over and over again. I just really like the set, and I enjoy the song choice as I was saying above. (I mean, Bartender is one of my favorite songs ever - so yeah, it's sweet to see it played live). It's cool that this was filmed in Boulder - and we all know DMB loves Colorado. Leroi was on absolute fire on this day. I could keep going on and on why you should get it.
I really hope that one day this is offered as a Blu Ray - just as I hope the other releases will be as well
This DVD is seriously undermined by unnecessary cuts to the audience. Some malformed edits occur at completely inappropriate times. For example, during Bartender, the band builds up the passion and intensity of what is essentially a prayer to God for salvation from drinking. As Dave opens his soul to God and the audience, the shot cuts to a couple girls pointing at the stage in what is supposed to be an expression of awe. Instead, it is a shot that dishonors the significance of the moment and turns Dave's soul into a pop spectacle.
At other times, the edits do not cut to individual musicians as they play notable phrases in a song. So, instead of watching Carter lay down a great fill, you see a cute young girl apparently quite excited by the experience if you take the bumps in her blouse as any evidence. Do you want to see just how Steffan plays that tasty bass line? Too bad. Instead, you'll get to watch fans bounce a beach ball across the crowd.
One reviewer counted some 200+ edit cuts in a single song. I haven't validated this but it is certainly possible. There is hardly any continuity or rhythm to the visual experience of this DVD. The camera angles seem somewhat crippled in comparison to the excellent camera work of Listener Supported.
Folsom Field's DVD is simply a bad video experience. One reviewer suggested just turning on the DVD and then going about your house to listen to the music. Good point but I think that's what CDs are for. Rent this one before you buy it.
