    SRP: £15.99

    Picture

    With most of the footage having been shot in the 1970's and early eighties the image does suffer from dirt and scratches, and also has a tendency to look very soft. Colours suffer somewhat from blooming here and there, and skin tones can look a little orange. But taking into account the age of the production we cannot be over critical of the picture quality.

    Sound

    The soundtrack is presented in Dolby 2.0 as well as an option for PCM playback. The soundtrack is acceptable if lacking somewhat in dynamics. Again this is due to age and cannot be held against the presentation. A new mix would have helped matters but what we are given is acceptable.

    Extras

    The extras are the bonus videos, My Kind of Lady, Cannonball, Better Days, Free as a Bird and I'm Begging You. The picture quality is a little better during the videos and the audio is that little bit better also.

    Verdict

    A must have for fans of the group but the presentation and material is only acceptable.
    Suggested retail price when reviewed: £15.99
