2954Re: 77 Boa Drum 2cd + dvd + book
- Dec 13, 2008Got my copy from CDJapan a few weeks back. The audio is MEGA! The
earth shook while I had it on in the car earlier this week.
The DVD is a RIP-OFF! Very disappointing. With all the cameras they
had at that event they should have very easily been able to put
together the entire 100 minutes on video. The cool part about the
video is that I actually found myself in it! 25 minutes of footage
just isn't enough though.
Where's the DVD of that documentary?
