  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Heart first released their Dreamboat Annie album in forward 30-plus years later to The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, and you will find Ann and Nancy Wilson still rocking out and tearing up the stage in this live performance. Recorded in its entirety on Mother

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows solid black levels, but shadow delineation is generally poor, leaving images looking dark and flat. Noise is also apparent in the darkest portions of the picture at times, which is not always apparent. Flesh also looks rather flat, with little life or realism. Long shots can be destroyed by pixilation and edge enhancement, which is also a distraction. (Danny Richelieu)
