    The Acoustic Concert: Crosby Stills And Nash DVD Review
    SRP: £12.99


    There is a prevailing sepian feel to this disc. Fair enough the whole thing is filmed in a large theatre and so would not have high outdoor contrasts. It's just everything seems muted and tinged with a faint tan film, eroding some colours' natural flair. The resolution of the picture is good, though, with only slight furring of edges evident. This is more a result of the times rather than bad quality per se, but judged ultimately, the picture is merely above average.

    Very good. Unlike the DEVO disc I reviewed earlier, there is a clear effort to get the sound quality as good as possible. The DD5.1 track is very clean, with surprisingly crisp high notes and intelligible vocals, which is just as well considering CSN's harmonising style. That same style does not allow for single figure bass hits, but the rear speakers are very effective and never get in the way of things. In fact, that aforementioned Stills solo is so good, it nearly lends itself to a reference track to indicate good detail and ambiance in sound.

    Unfortunately there isn't any. Very poor indeed.

    You can say this to any music disc, but, if you like CSN then you'll lap The Acoustic Concert up. Even as a follower, though, the lack of added content smacks of laziness on the producers part and marks down a disc that otherwise has all the right qualities you'd expect from such an effort. The reality, though, is the restricted venue and paucity of added content really reduces this disc to an elaborate, if well executed, CD.
    Suggested retail price when reviewed: £12.99
