COMMENT

This 19 minute footage is something of a mystery to me as it seemingly appeared from nowhere in early 2006 with very little fanfare. It is of such high quality I'm a little amazed it wasn't shouted from the roof tops. Professionally filmed with various camera angles (I counted 4 different cams) this is certainly one of the better pieces of footage to emerge over the recent past. Considering the footage itself is 20 years old the quality of the picture really cannot be faulted and the various camera's give an excellent view of the action on-stage along with various unique camera angles. Unlike the static 'Stockholm 1986' professionally filmed footage, this video recording has various close-ups and captures the atmosphere of the show perfectly. The sound quality dips during 'Christopher Tracy's Parade' and doesn't match the dizzy heights of the opening few minutes, but it's a moot point considering the quality overall. The footage also unfortunately has a section missing and it fades out during the opening bars of 'I Wonder U' before restarting during the intro to 'Delirious' (meaning 'I Wonder U' & 'Raspberry Beret' are missing), but this is merely an observation and certainly not a criticism. Whether the complete (or even more complete) footage from this recording surfaces in the future I have no idea, but I'm happy to sit it out and enjoy this in the meantime. The menu's are extremely basic, but hardly worthy of mention as the recording itself lasts a little over 19 minutes.

NOTE: This can be burnt as mini DVD on a CDR

PARTYMAN (BROADCAST INTRO VERSION) / PROMO FOR JAPANESE BROADCAST



DATABANK COMMENT:

Another release of the infamous Japanese broadcast Nude Tour concert - however if there is only one version (of the many circulating) which deserves a place in anyone's collection, it HAS to be this release. What separates this release from the others is not only the superior picture quality, but also the added extra's which are the icing on the cake. The picture quality is a step above the other releases. The most notable improvement (for me) is the strobe lighting effects which are almost blinding on many other versions  - here they are still powerful, but not as epileptic-fit-inducing as the others - which is a good thing! The colours are far more solid, and the footage is much sharper. The extra's on the DVD are the real treat and include some nice surprise moments. The DVD includes 2 different versions of the Partyman intro and a cool, lengthy advert for the Japanese broadcast. I should also note that this DVD has been security protected by Fullasoul. I won't give details of when or how, as it will become obvious to anyone watching - suffice to say that the people who make ££ from intended free releases will have a hard time removing it. Unfortunately it is a necessary evil. Plain and simple menu's, however the text could have been slightly larger - that's my only bitch.
