Quite worse quality but historically very valuable.

This is a great document. Mel's Knight of the Hurricane is a wonderful project, and a must have for hardcore fans of the RTR. Likewise, the Toronto footage, while suffering from the ravages of time, is quite watchable and as this is all we have for now, its really a treasure to my mind
The sound upgrade is extremely well done, never a small feat, this author also had to handle various random snips and splices, and he does so flawlessly. The 'sync' is right on, and it helps to make this DVD very enjoyable. Thanks to all involved, and thanks to
