Musicology Tour - Bryce Jordan Center, University Park : 18th April 2004



A case of the bootleggers bootlegging the bootleggers on this shocking release from Ladybird. This footage has been freely circulating amongst collectors, attributed to 'Hidden Images / Mad Raving Stark' (THIS version). The beginning of the show is missing, as the person filming didn't get to his seat in time (hence the audio only on Let's Go Crazy - no picture to begin with). Mad Raving Stark's version features their logo, along with stills from the show (and the audio in the background). Ladybird have merely taken that release, chopped out the 'Mad Raving Stark' logo part of the intro, then pressed 'RECORD' - it is a TERRIBLE thing for them to have done!!!!!! Not only content with doing that, they have gone one further and printed up the artwork with missing / incorrect song titles. The (ahem) 'bonus' footage is 'Musicology' taken from THIS footage, and is fucking awful - someone's head is in the way for half the song - they should have left it off. Ladybird are releasing FAR too many DVD's with little, or no effort attached. They are under the assumption that if the DVD is pressed (as opposed to DVD-R), folks will buy it - 'fraid not. At the time of this release (late July 2004), there have been no future announcements from Ladybird regarding their next DVD release - I hope (for their sake) they take some time to impress the people who pay their hard earned money for their product - because you only get so many chances before fans say enough is enough.
