Fans of George Benson should be pleased with this anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture. Images are sharp, with nicely rendered detail and depth. Stage details shimmer and create minor aliasing problems at times, but otherwise the picture can be quite solid.

The 5.1-channel soundtrack is a lively, energetic presentation with plenty to offer in terms of spaciousness and envelopment. Fidelity is remarkable, and the audio simply comes alive all around you, with prominent surround activity throughout and a very compelling sense of being right in the crowd experiencing the performances.

The disc also includes a PCM 2.0 soundtrack option. (Perry Sun)
