Dreamboat Annie Live DVD Cover Art
SRP $19.98 1.78:1 DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 SHOUT

While there are certain to be many fans of "HEART" that will be happy with the selections offered on this "live" dvd, this reviewer isn't one of them. There are so many great songs by the band, that it's disappointing to find "NONE" of their later hits are performed here.  While the obvious goal of the band was to play the entire "album" from beginning to end, it would have been nice for them to include some of their later hits, rather than covers of songs from Led Zeppelin and The Who!

That said, SHOUT has provided a nice transfer with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Colors are bright throughout. Contrast is impressive, with excellent detail, even in darker moments. There are a few artifacts, but overall, it's a solid transfer.

A Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is offered here.  While surrounds aren't as active as some concert-goers may desire, they do kick in with impact on occasion. Dynamic range is excellent and the sisters' harmony is really showcased well here. No distortion to be found anywhere.
