Comments from Justin Cook:

Given the age of the master tape from which this recording must have descended, the picture quality is surprisingly good. Warping and discoloration, two major problems with both old and high generation videos, is not bad at all. The picture is a bit dark, but there's not much that could be done about this since the footage was filmed this way originally. A very thin strip of "snow" appears beneath the picture. Having produced plenty of VCDs myself, I know that this is the result of not setting the vertical alignment properly. This flaw hardly detracts from viewing the VCD. Audio is excellent - the soundboard bootleg "Last Night At the Ritz" was dubbed from this video. However, there are a few pops and crackles along the way which is not unusual for videos.
