  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The Dave Matthews Band truly felt honored to play The Central Park Concert, a tribute in support of children

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits very nicely rendered images, with shots from the stage floor that put you in the front row of the audience. While there are some camera angles that appear a little bit blurry, others are extremely sharp and nicely detailed. Colors are well balanced and nicely saturated, with accurate fleshtones, bright stage lighting, and deep blacks. Edge halos are not noticed, though some minor shimmering is detected. There is no distracting pixel breakup, for a smooth concert-going visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
