The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 7.5, Video - 9)

Taken from a Digital 8 clone of the 2 camera mixdown master, this is one of the finest looking videos around. It is even more remarkable when you consider that it is an audience shot show. The camera work is tight, steady, and remarkably clear. One camera to the rear of the venue and another on stage left providing close up shots of the band. The audio is the same as the "Initial Reflections" release which starts off a little rough but sounds very nice for the rest of the show. But it is the video that is the star of the show. It is opening night for the T4E tour and there are a few goof ups here and there by the band. This is a video that almost every Rush fan is going to love to watch.

Production notes. The video was split at the intermission so as to provide better quality on 2 discs. The video was compressed with 2 pass VBR (Variable Bit Rate) for optimal quality. The audio was encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0 at a 448k bit rate, the highest official DVD specification. As an added bonus, hit the "AUDIO" button on your remote to change between audio soundtracks. Soundtrack 1 is the "Initial Reflections" only audio. Soundtrack 2 is a matrix with the audio from the mixdown master video. Each offers a slightly different sound and can between switched between at any time during concert playback. Thanks again to Rubicon Productions for the audio source and to "NYBG" and "CBG" for the video source. As with all Digital Reproductions releases, this is for free trade or blank media trade only and not to be bought, sold or distributed for profit. Please keep the spirit of trading alive and well.    (2002-08-11)

All in all a great and must see!! A few songs are over-produced video wise (Time And Motion the most) But this is a must have for any Rush fan!!!   (2009-06-07)

When I say the vidio was over-produced on some songs I mean F/X, all else is great!!   (2009-06-07)


I was looking forward to this DVD release. Unfortunately, the video has an annoying watermark of an alien head in the lower right corner of the screen, which is plastered on the screen throughout the entire concert. Not good. I'll be keeping my VHS copy.   (2011-02-20)
