Thumbs down DVDs can be even more messed up!

Forget all your complaints about the original DVD release of Soulfully Live - this seems to have been fixed now.

DVDs can be even more messed up, and I have an excellent example for you:

DARE - The Power Of Nature, Live in Munich
MTM Music, 2005

Being a huge fan of everything Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy , I bought this without hesitating. Plus I haven't seen them Live ever, so it couldn't be that bad. It is.

The concert was recorded and filmed under bad circumstances: heavy rain, more rain and even more rain . Most of the footage, including the close-ups of Darren Wharton (lead singer) couldn't be used for the DVD .

So much for the good plan. Blame it on the weather man.

But: instead of cancelling the project, they decided to film Darren Wharton in the studio, miming to the tapes and put him into the picture, close-up, over the rest of the footage . Looks like a cheap Video-Clip. The whole thing is completely out of sync (seems like the have tried to compile film footage to go with the concert audio, but that didn't work out too well either) - and the best part is, that Darren wears glasses at the gig - yep, no glasses in the mimed footage .

And: lots of snippets of Darren walking around the countryside in Wales .

This is ridiculous!!!!
(And I won't dwelve more into the fact that Dare don't have a bass player - this is a different topic...)

I mean - this is the same label that gave us HTP!!???
How can they release a product like that?

I can only suggest you stay away from this.

Thanks for listening! Don't get me wrong - I'm just angry.
