On the back of this DVD is a quote from an Australian rock authority describing this disc as "a feast of rock classics... few captured performances have ever sounded and felt so good".
Now, reviewing is very subjective. But I still wish I'd been sent the same disc he'd received - there is no way we could have been viewing the same limp, mediocre concert.
The eponymous Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band boasts, alongside Ringo, musicians including Dr John the Night Tripper, Levon Helm, Billy Preston, Clarence Clemons, Rick Danko, Nils Lofgren and Joe Walsh.
Clemons, Danko, Lofgren and Preston show some signs of life. All the rest are well past their use-by date. Ringo in particular would be better off sticking to his other work - doing voice-overs for Thomas the Tank Engine.
The only thing bright about this concert is Ringo's lurid fluorescent mauve jacket which he wears before swapping for a more subdued night-time affair of moons and stars. It's a pity he couldn't swap the voice too. It fades badly during the 60-minute concert. By the time he gets to the last number, With a Little Help From My Friends, he needs all the help he can get - but gets none.
This 60-minute video is of only reasonable full-screen viewing quality, not particularly well filmed, and sometimes fairly murky due to the indifferent stage lighting.
The sound, two-channel Dolby stereo, is again only adequate, reflecting being recorded live, with nothing special going on in the audio department to make up for the fairly drab visuals.
Standard text biographies are included, along with a song listing and a not especially brilliant picture gallery.
