How does it look after 30 years? Well, first you have to realize this was all pretty much shot on video, so by today's standards the picture isn't great, especially considering this is action footage of low-lit concerts with lots of movement and flashing light - not ideal conditions for VHS to produce a clear image. It's also naturally in 4:3 aspect ratio. And as others have noticed, the way that the video footage is edited together with the live music doesn't always match exactly, it's often more like a montage than a literal documentation of the performance. But that was no surprise to me - as I said, I had seen this many times on cable and even had a crappy VHS recording of it. AND - and, and, and, and... this is UNCENSORED, which was something I had completely forgotten about. All the times girls run on stage and yank their shirts up, there are no black bars hiding their assets and you see it all. At least three separate instances of boobs and I haven't even finished watching the whole video yet. God bless 'em.
Audio wise it sounded pretty good (Dolby 2.0 plus some other option I can't remember). Not as many songs as the double LP of course, but still most of their big hits from the time.
I've been waiting to get this for a long time, and now that I saw it again it definitely took me back. It was an amazing feeling actually, simultaneously remembering how it felt to be a kid watching this and looking up to them somewhat while also seeing many of the places I've now been while touring with a band of my own (in the US of course, but also lots of amazing familiar places in Europe). Really awesome that this is now finally in my collection. It's definitely as much of an important time as the Judas Priest live show from 1982 in Memphis (which is also finally on DVD).
If you are a die-hard Scorpions fan, this is a "must-have". The DVD is mostly interviews, but that's what I was looking for. Other DVD's have great music, but you barely ever hear the guys TALK. Although the woman who conducts the interviews is pretty bad (Matthias even asks her at one point if she "is serious"), the answers from the band offer deep insights into their intelligence, their commitment to their music, their deep friendship, their thoughts on world peace, etc. Rudolf and the other band members describe each other, name their favorite songs/albums/tours etc. and you get a real feel for their personalities. The guys are all funny, smart and dedicated.
Truly a MUST for anybody who wants to get to know the men behind the music.
The snippets of music are (of course) GREAT and there are several shots from videos, tours and photo shoots.
As a lifelong musician myself, I like to get into the "process" as well as just appreciate the music. I was very pleased to "meet the band" and see them as more than just beautiful men who make beautiful music. Their intelligence and concern over world issues gives the listener a whole new appreciation for their music.
My ONLY negative comment would be that they should have gotten an interviewer with a bit more intelligence -- but then again, that only adds to the comedic value of some spots! It is HYSTERICAL when Matthias looks her in the eye with a "you're kidding" expression!
