Great music, great DVD and interesting commentary in-between artists. Love it!

The Northgate (NGA) copy of this DVD is damaged and some of the performances are unplayable. The Douglass-Truth copy is in good shape. Many good performances here. Rory Gallagher, original Wailers, Curtis Mayfield, XTC, Tom Waits. The Edgar Winter Groups performance of Frankenstein is particularly good (obviously a very well rehearsed band at that point). The John Lennon interview is also an added highlight. Before there was (were?) 24-hour music video channels shows like this were one of the few ways you could see bands/artists playing live on TV (if you were in England, anyway ;-).

Original Wailers. The best John Lennon interview. Keith Richards interview-- baked (check out his teeth).
