Thanks a million for putting this together, I very much appreciate it. Looks like an upgrade to me compared to the Brazilian release, it'll be nice to have it all on one disc as well :D .

I just added another screen capture to point out: Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman must be the most f'ing COOLEST rhythm section ever. Always looking bad-ass, just chillin'. 8)

Thanks for this one. Hopping on myself. Page playing STH always tends to make me a bit :cry: during these ARMS concerts.

Thanks.

How good is Jimmy's solo in Tulsa Time? Classic Page right there. I think he sounds really good during this show, and has a lot of energy.

How many ARMS concerts dvd are there? other then this one and the December 9, 1983 one?

Just watched it start to finish. Literally dancing around to Clapton, Low and Winwood in my pj's. Couldn't sit still.
Beck's choice of songs didn't do a lot for me but Jimmy doing Prelude and STH broke my heart. Loved it.

I also like Jimmy and Winwood together :D

Ray Cooper - excited much? poor gong :lol:

I'm no expert on video production but this show looked and sounded great on my Sony Bravia.
Thanks so much Pres for the amazing show.

Now I'm jonesing for live concert...No Quarter next week!

Awesome- took a peak at it, looks great! Hopefully I'll get a chance in the next couple of days to watch it all the way through.

Thank you!!

Thanks for your generosity in sharing this. A great job on this production! =D>

I thought Steve Winwood did a great job singing Jimmy's 'Who's to Blame' and 'City Sirens' (even though he's looking down at the words every other verse!). One wonders what could have been accomplished if these two had ever teamed up afterwards.

I could have done without the cheesy keyboard in 'Stairway'. :roll: But the solo -- so inspired! Jimmy just cuts lose. What a great tone, too.

I Clapton was awesome, too. Always good to hear him playing the blues.

Finally had a chance to burn to DL DVD and watch all the way through on my HDTV, rather than just a snippet on the PC as I had previously. Clearly, this is a very nice upgrade compared to the Brazilian version which is way too dark, the Presence version is lighter, colorfull and natural looking in comparison. Presence version wins hands down...nice job =D>.

I've never seen the Brazilian version people are speaking of. The last version I have of this is my VHS tape from 1985. :shock:

Obviously, this version is vastly superior and a pleasure to get reacquainted with. It's incredible how in the 80s (and even into the early 90s) 1" tape was the archival standard. The tape has held up well, but that analogue softness enhances its nostalgic feel. The audio is great on this production.

It's great that you still have access to a 1" VTR with clean heads. :lol:

I am just pleased as all hell to be actually getting some feedback and reviews. =D> :rockout

I absolutely agree. I far prefer Winwood singing these tracks than the vocalist on the Death Wish II soundtrack. They are the highlight of his set for me.

This is most excellent - thank you Presence. =D> Imagine how good it could have been if there had been a decent bunch of musos behind them :wink: :lol:

It looks like I might have to take the leap into burning DL discs - I have steered away so far due to the cost, but this needs to be thrown up on a big screen with some decent sound.

Finally had a chance to watch some of this, great stuff Presence. I've only ever watched this in muffled mono so it's fantastic to see it with cleaner visuals and decent sound.

I was at the show and my overiding memory is of Ronnie Lane being led onto the stage by, I think, Harvey Goldsmith. Ronnie looked so frail it was quite heartbreaking, it was one of those moments which moved you to tears.

I've recently discovered that a few songs weren't included on the video - the ensemble did "Bomber's Moon" (by Ronnie Lane) before Goodnight Irene with Jimmy in restrained mode, here's an MP3 of it which I think comes from the "Night of Kings" CD.

Did anyone notice Jimmy say "where was Jeff?" to Andy Fairweather-Lowe just after finishing Stairway? I read at the time that Jeff Beck was supposed to join Jimmy on stage for the song but never turned up. I guess this proves it.

Finally a mate of mine, Mick, took some photographs from in front of the stage - I've managed to get a still from the video taken at pretty much the same time he took one of the photos. Mick must have been standing only a few feet to the left of the camerman as the angle is almost, but not quite, the same. A bit geeky but I couldn't resist.

Thanks again Presence.

Thanks so much for this - the quality is great.

Jimmy's solo on Tulsa Time reminds me of Hot Dog... I like it.

As has been mentioned, Winwood does a nice job on the DW2 tracks.

Very cool to see Page, Beck, and Clapton playing together. It's just too bad that Jimmy was in such a diminished state at the time.


____
On another note, can I ask if anyone else is having an issue with the disc seeming to 'freeze' at several points? One notable instance is just before the 'fanfare' portion of Stairway To Heaven, but it's happening at many other times as well - reminiscent of what happens when transition is made from one layer to the next one on a dual layer disc (but longer). I had to split this into two discs because my computer can't burn DL discs, so perhaps this is somehow a consequence of that (although it hasn't happened to me before, and I used the same steps as I always have - splitting with DVD Shrink with No Compression). I haven't watched any of the first disc (I split the discs after Chapter 12, so disc two begins with Jeff Beck's set), so I'm not sure if both discs have the same problem. Just wanted to check if I was the only one.

Thanks again for your work on this show!
