As it has been mentioned the audio has some weaknesses. The 5.1 DTS or Dolby Digital is good, but it could've been "Great". I have a high end home theater. Marantz Receiver and an OPPP-BDP 95/32Bit/DAC and high end PSB Speakers and Audio Quest (upper Level) Cables throughout. I had to crank up very high to hear it, The PCM Stereo mix seemed to have more bottom end w/ out 5.1 separation. The lower level's need to be mixed a lot better, some of the songs the vocals were being drowned out by the music. Listen to the end of Preztel Logic When M.McD. was singing and adlibing towards the end, the vocal mix was way to low, For DTS HD Master Audio mix, it just should've been more dynamic, better bottom end and the level a lot higher at lower level.
The Picture quality was flawless, the colors and flesh tones clear and accurate, patterns of jackets and shirts vivid and clear.
Now on to the content, Since the touring began in 2010, the shows have been 2 hour + and the songs changed a bit here and there, but a lot of songs seemed to be left off. Maybe this set was cut down to 90 minutes. specificly for this PBS special, maybe someone who was there can mention if there were additional songs played, but not on the Blu-ray. I know the broadcast was cut down to 60 minutes. to get folks interested and wanting more, so they would be interested in buying the DVD/Blu-Ray.Read more ›

I grew up listening to their music and still have a few Albums on Vinyl and the reason I mention the Band because they all work in tune so well together especially John Herrington playing awesome lead guitar licks that deserve recognition as for the picture I recently upgraded to a 65 inch 4K TV and the picture of this Blu Ray is awesome as for the sound there are three settings : Dolby Digital Stereo - Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround - D.T.S Digital 5.1 Surround and all sound good except a bit louder on Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround , running time 1.31 minutes and a Great Concert .

Great DVD. Enjoyed seeing these artists performing up close. I had read criticisms of the sound track(s), but since I have only watched it on my PC so far, I have no complaints. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John McNaughton
There's always a risk with buying a concert online, and I have high expectations for videography and sound quality, and this measures up!! Great job by all 3 artists. Read morePublished 1 month ago by S. Mills
