Wow, wow, wow! Watching this dvd just puzzles me why Rob went back to Priest, I guess more or less for the paycheck...but oh well, this release is just pure magic. First off the Resurrection cd is included in this set, freshly remastered and newly expanded with 2 tracks from the Resurrection sessions (Sad Wings and Hells Last Survivor), both of them previously appeared on the Japan release and later as (uh-hum) live versions on Insurrection. They make a nice addition finally on the US side. There are 2 brand spanking new tracks Fetish and God Bringer of Death. While they are powerful and fast, and have that trademark Halford scream, they appear out of place on the cd, because again, they are newly recorded, so the mix and sound is different from the rest of the tracks. No bother though, they don't take away any of the majestic from Resurrection.
Now the DVD is a real treat. Halford and his band just slay for 14 songs, and 60 minutes, and you get it all. Halford classics, Fight classics, Priest gems (Jawbreaker and Stained Class) and classic (Breaking the what?...Let's break that Law! and Electric Eye). The DVD is incredible and while it was heavily bootlegged for years, this is the official, cleaned up (video and sound) version, worth every penny.
God Bless you Rob, you have done a superb job with releasing the Fight Collection (yes Into the Pit is a treasure chest!), and now the Halford years...can't wait next year for the Crucible collection. Thanks

I already own the first two incarnations of this DVD. The first version had the autographed picture card and DVD of Rock In Rio plus Halford Resurrection remastered (Halford I) included, and was the only way to get that CD for a while. The second version was the Blu-Ray which had the concert plus the remastered Live Insurrection concert audio in 5.1 surround sound on it, the only way you can still get that show in that mixing ( but is now on standard cd). So why did I feel the need to get the third album? It was for the 14 track bonus CD that came with it. Now I can listen to this anywhere I am. This live performance is as good as I have ever seen by Priest or Halford solo. It has a great selection of Judas Priest, Halford, and Fight songs (no Two though). The mastering is great and really captures what his live performance was during this time period. I saw him right around the time this was recorded, and it was like I was back in the pit again. And for the current going price, it's a good deal for even just the live CD. I sort of wish this was the first version that came out, but likely I still would have purchased the three versions due to each of their qualities. A definite for metal fans!

This is a great little DVD from the Halford band. It's basically a 90 minute feature that intersperses Halford's live set from Rock in Rio, with Resurrection studio footage and interviews with the band that look back at that time period.

The live footage from Rock in Rio III is very good. The Halford band is very tight, and can burn through their own songs as well as the Priest classics. I know we should all be happy that Rob can still belt out the classics, but I do wish he would move a little more on stage. I don't know if he's reading off of a teleprompter or just concentrating on the delivery, but he is fairly motionless on stage.

But the live show is only half of the DVD. What I especially enjoyed was watching Rob in the studio, delivering and editing lyrics during the Resurrection studio sessions. I always love watching how an album gets made, and watching him completely overhaul the lyrics to what would eventually become 'Drive' is very interesting. To me, the studio sessions are the best part of the DVD.

All in all, a good DVD. Also, for those interested, it's 4:3 aspect ratio and 5.1 Dolby Digital.

This is a very good buy. To me (and don't freak, all you Priest fans out there), I much prefer Halford's solo work to Judas Priest. While I recognize they are a premiere metal band, they've never been one of my favorites. Halford's songs are, in my view, a LOT more consistently solid and catchier (in the main) than Priest's are. Just one man's opinion. I'm not denigrating Priest's role in metal history by any means. I have nothing but respect for them and their accomplishments. They're just not one of my favorite metal bands.

Rob Halford (aka The Metal God) and his bandmates put on a great show. There are a few songs left off that I would have
liked to have seen performed live, but the 5.1 audio of Live Insurrection is nice.

True fans, this is what you want to see and hear! Great vocal performance but what you might not expect is the absolute shredding by the Halford band that even true Priest fans can embrace! AWESOME!!!
