It was transfered from video, so it ain't high-def.
Highly recommended for Entwhistle fans, beginners should find a primer instead.
Its also amazing how video production has changes over the past 20 years. The picture is good, but you can see the improvements in cameras and tapes.
Where is the instruction? It isn't here. Sadly, now, we can't rectify this because John is no longer living to make a truly worthwhile instructional video.
Pass to the other side of the road on this one.
I picked this DVD up to see if I could learn a trick or two and get some kind of insight on this musical genius's playing style. Well, you're not going to learn much from this DVD, unless you're just starting out and then watching this might discourage you! It's basically John noodling around for a half hour or so not really showing more than finger positions etc. I would also like to point out that his bass tone sounds terrible and distorted to the point that it isn't enjoyable. It would have been nice if we could see both hands when he is playing as it make it even harder to learn anything while watching either hand. It's interesting to watch a couple of times, but not anything you need to own. John Entwistle was one of the greatest bassist of all time, it's a shame we will never get a true insight to his incredible talent.
