COMMENT

An excellent release of perhaps Prince's finest concert. This particular release has been taken from the Laser Disc, and because of this it is a slightly different edit to the UK/European VHS release. The camera angles used are minimally different during various parts of the show (most notable during 'Housequake' where the difference is obvious), and because of this it's like having a different version of the same show - excellent stuff. The picture quality really cannot be faulted. It is of extremely high quality with sharp, bright colours and is far superior to any other version in circulation. The only tiny flaw comes during the brief interlude between 'Eye No / Lovesexy' where the Laser Disc had to be changed between Disc 1 & Disc 2. It fades out for a fraction of a second before fading back in. It has been done almost flawlessly, and is barely worthy of mention as it doesn't occur during the actual song itself. The menu's are a slight let down as they don't match the quality of the footage. They are extremely plain, to the point of looking rather cheap in comparison to what is on the DVD itself. The packaging is nice with a hefty 16 page booklet, however it is bare of any information, and the photoshopping of the pictures used ain't all that great (not to mention the inclusion of a Purple Rain tour picture). I have been a little harsh in my criticism of the packaging and menu's, however the content is what is important on this release, and it's stunningly good.
