The Italian production is bad, should have been left out. The rest is VG to excellent. Historical performance on Quest show. Very Good black & white production (remember it's a 1964 TV show). Set in a lumberjack camp, the actors play cards, drink beer, lit and smoke cigarettes. Yes, the times have change.

This is a great compilation disc. At this point I only have one other compilation disc to compare it to, Through the Years I.
Besides that listed in the description above, Quest includes much or all (not sure) of the CBS Quest show but does have the timer running on the bottom of the screen throughout the Quest footage. It doesn't interfere much though with the surreal black & white film. There is some great stuff from what appears to be Italian tv from the Street Legal tour intercut with Woodstock-looking footage of naked bikers. 2 songs from '84 Letterman, Don't Start Me Talking & Jokerman and Forever Young from '93 (I think) Letterman. Great stuff again! There are a couple videos, 80s period. It has Newport footage also, as indicated by the title.
All in all a very satisfying 90 minutes. No menus or chapters and I bought my copy from an online store (before I knew about this site). Audio and video quality vary, as expected, and are better in the more recent stuff. All songs are complete and uncut.
