I would have went to see John if I had had the option of all 4. I think he had more of a presence on stage (im not saying Paul doesn’t, I saw him in Glasgow and it was beyond amazing. Just unbelievably brilliant). I see the Beatles live and for me its John who stands out. But that’s in hindsight and having seen Paul and Ringo already.

It’s funny: Back in October I was on vacation visiting my mum when the Magical Mystery Tour DVD was released, and I said “Cool! I hope it’s in the store when I get home!” And it was! And now here I am on vacation again…and I hope that Rockshow DVD’s in the store when I get home!
I’m still hoping Funny Paper will review the thing and tell us if it compares to her memory of the show (which she saw LIVE, don’tcha know)
One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

No problem – equal delays on this end.
I think that if I were to run a “School of Rock” class, that Rockshow DVD would be a must. Even songs I don’t care for on the (studio) recording come to life in spectacular fashion.
The artifice of bringing the 3 guitarists close together during the acoustic set really works. I’m surprised he hasn’t done that since ( or has he?)
Yes, McC really “brings it on.”

I happened upon a discussion of a defective mix on the Rockshow DVD, and I realized that my copy is actually defective. Has anyone encountered this? The volume fades and then suddenly comes back over and over again during the songs. The bass level drops–you can still hear the bass, but it becomes quiet and tinny sounding. Sometimes you hear things as if through a tunnel.
I never noticed this before, but I have recently gotten a new stereo system. Eagle Rock were offering replacement discs for a while, but I am sure they have stopped now. I hate to buy another one.
