  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
What would you do if you had Deep Purple

DVD Picture:
The non-anamorphic 1.66:1 DVD exhibits images that are generally sharp, though shots of the stage appear undefined. The stage lighting tends to contribute to a smeared appearance, but that is to be expected. Colors are nicely rendered and generally pleasing. Aliasing problems, shimmering details are noticed, but image quality is by no means atrocious. (Suzanne Hodges)
