For music fans, or people with pulses, this is essential, addictive, compulsive viewing. I want to watch it again right now. The 'Electronovision' cameras may not have been perfect, (love those black haloes around shiny objects for instance) but the camera-work and editing are first rate, making you feel as if you're right there with the screaming teenage girls in cats-eye glasses. Or right on stage, with intense close-ups of performers (like really close up) overwhelming with immediacy, leading viewers to truly understand the euphoric, transcendent aspects of live music. It's just icing on the cake to note that performers, when needed, are backed by a horn section and The Wrecking Crew, with Glen Campbell and the late great Leon Russell, among others. You also get fantastic dancers, choreographed by David Winters, including a very young Teri Garr, who redefines sexy with her wildly enthusiastic moves. (If you needed just one more reason to buy this release, that is.) -- Kurt Dahlke
SHM-CD is a digital optical disc data storage manufacturing process. It is an improved compact disc product with the greatest change being a different polycarbonate material that allows more precise physical representation of stored bits during pressing and less laser scatter during reading. These improvements aim to facilitate playback by producing fewer errors and potentially better sound quality. SHM-CDs are played on a standard CD player. This process was developed in Japan by Universal Music Japan and JVC.
