The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is fantastic, exhibiting bold, vibrant colors, natural fleshtones and endless blacks. Images are sharp and solid and the stage performance exhibits good depth and definition. Detail into the audience is also impressive. Some full shots of the stage are a bit soft. The bold blue suits worn by James Brown and the band are just a shade shy of oversaturation-absolutely a stunning color. Before the performance starts the picture exhibits some distractions like aliasing problems, pixelization and lack of definition in the darker scenes, but the curtain opens less than four minutes into the program and I can't imagine any fan feeling disappointed with the visual performance.

Reason #65 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it is an informative source on A/V equipment and entertainment. The many excellent reviews on DVDs (and Laser Discs, back in the day), as well as surround music, have led me to some real gems!
