Left balcony 40 degrees.

This is one DVD that really captures the excitement and excellence of a good Bob show.

Audio and Video sources are pristine, and our Author's capture of this vhs is clearly cleaner than D521. Sync is also fine, one of those DVDs where you might forget that there is a 'new' audio track.

Bob and the Band are in great form, certainly one of the best 1997 films circulating as of this writing. If you like Bob you'll enjoy it.

Highly recommended.
