    DVD's here, I'm buying as soon as I can.

    It may take an extra few days to get to the States, so you Britts let us Yanks know how it is!

    Just looked through the dvd package. It certainly is very impressive! It looks like a book and has a dvd disc at each end, and inbetween are lots of glossy pages of pictures and words. It certainly looks very very impressive indeed. If the content is half as good then it is going to be a real winner!

    Well done lads!

    First post for nearly 2 years.....

    Anyway I got my DVD on Saturday and sat down and read the enclosed booklet. Thought that the slagging off of M/M saxon could have been left till towards the end and, could have gone on for a lot longer than it did. I'm sure that there will be a book waiting to be written on this.

    Bloody good DVD and well worth repeated watchings, although on the TV footage the shoplifter Richard Madely introduces Saxon as "Hawkwind". May you and Judy rot in unknown TV hours....

    Just got mine in the post. It's early days yet as I am only as far as Heavy Metal Thunder (3rd track), but so far so good! The packaging is excellent, with loads of old photos and a written history of the band.

    It must be nearly 15 years ago that I saw them last, on the Destiny tour,
    and this is making me hungry to see them again, now if I can only get tickets for the Cardiff gig on the 28th of this month my summer will be complete!!

    Well done to everybody involved with this DVD, it most definetally seems worth the long wait!!!!

    Well, I went into my local HMV to buy it yesterday, and the 3 copies that were there when I first went in were reduced to 1 (the one I bought + someone else) by the end of the day when I nipped back in looking for something else. It would be interesting to know the sales figures this DVD eventually manages.

    Quite amused to see the increasingly battered single copy of M/M Saxon's DVD, that's been there for ages, was still sat there on the shelf by the end of the day though. :lol: The buying public seem to know which is the real deal.

    And what a DVD it is too! Sound and video are top notch and the band are well on form. Shame about not having the entire setlist, but still a good DVD overall.

    Tonight I get round to the special features...

    I've just seen some of the dvd and it looks fine but the sound to me is a bit dissapointing. I've compared the two soundtracks (5.1 and PCM stereo) and I prefer the stereo track over the 5.1 cause the latter seems strangely muted and lacks the punch in the midrange sounds. Especially the guitars suffers from being too low in the mix. I suggest you put on Iron Maiden's Rock in Rio for an example of af perfectly mixed live dvd.

    Finally, I have it in my hands, it sure looks good, and I have seen only a bit of the wacken consert (all songs except the ones after the eagle has landed) and it sounds really good, over my expectations! I saw the interview too, I'm gonna see the rest of the 1st disc tomorrow, and read the whole booklet.

    Bloody Brilliant is all I can say. It's kicked me into registering to say so. The extras are a mix of Spinal Tap, Bad News and I love 198x. Seeing Richard Madely introducing them as Hawkwind, being the first Heavy Metal band to play Jersey, gems that must not be lost for future generations.

    Can't wait for chronicles II were hopefully the TV bits wil be complete and full screen.

    Iv'e just finished watching the lot, it's excellent, I've come over all nostalgic.

    So good to see Quinny and syrup back together again! :tickled: And I'd forgotten how cheesy the power and glory vid was....... tremendous.

    No seriously I am very impressed the packaging and the content is first class, well done to everyone involved...... it was worth the wait!

    :D:D:D:D:D

    I also watched it a few times now...agree with what most of you say, like it as well.

    Major bummers for me are the many cuts in the Wacken set between songs, the unprofessionaly done overdubs, the muddy and badly remixed sound of the entire WOA show and, of course, (worst of all) that the Wacken set is INCOMPLETE!!

    Absolutley Fantastic.

    As Fingers said, I LOVED seeing Quinnys Syrup again, the dogs of War era one was a classic! :lol:

    The WOA show is brilliant and sounds really good wired up to my stereo, Nibbs dissapearing doc is a excellent!
    The second disc is also really good, but I'd have prefered it if some of the bootleg bits would have had songs in there entirety no matter how shitty the quality or filming was. Seeing the whole of Sea of Life and Frozen Rainbow would have been a whole lot better.
    All in all though a brilliant DVD with the best packaging I've come across so far. :headbang:
