    Well, I know I can account for one. I just got it in the mail today and have just begun to take a peek. Looks like some neat stuff going on if your a Stones fan.

    I read that this is only available from Best Buy. Will it be available later from other retailers ? Any reviews yet ? Thanks...

    I can understand the other franchises being upset about not having the set to sell, but HMV and Music World would never have sold this set for $39.99 that The Future Shop was selling it for. As for the set itself; it's great for any level of Stones fan. Great concerts in three different venues and a documentary DVD as well. Sound quality is pretty good, but I recommend the PCM as opposed to 5.1.

    Mark,

    Why the PCM track ?

    I've been holding out on buying it pending the reviews about sound and picture quality...

    Seen 'em live in '75. Yes I was 2 (not).

    Seen many a Stones concert release on celluloid, tape, tube and kinetoscope.

    If this dvd is up to today's standards technically, I'll get it.

    Is the 5.1 track laced with the usual DD compression anomalies, is it overproduced, or just sound like poo poo ?

    ... While I've got you on the line, what's the PQ like ?

    The audio and video (especially the video) quality are absolutely pristine...it's the performances themselves that I find disappointing. Wish they could have filmed concerts in this kind of high quality back in the Stones' prime.

    well a remastered "Lets Spend The Night Together" someday would be great and probably look good and then theres the rarely seen "Ladies and Gentlemen.....the Rolling Stones" which I would love to see remastered and released. Who knows what they have in the vault. Hopefully the Zeppelin DVD will encourage bands to release vault stuff.
