I just recently became aware of this Devo-Live 1980 concert DVD. Of course, I had to have it. It wasn't the same tour I attended and they weren't wearing their "energy domes" as yet, but the 1980 concert is a close approximation to my own experience. My wife and I watched it the other night. She thought Devo was a really strange rock act, which, of course, they were. I loved it! This DVD is very well done and I'm going to get a lot of use out of it. The video is not particularly good. The sound is not up to the quality of the records. Who cares? It was great to see these guys in action and the concert itself was excellent. These Spuds really move me!
If you want to get a picture of what you'll see, get out your "Freedom Of Choice" CD and look at the photos of the Spudboys on the inner liner. That's exactly what they look like in this performance, right down to Alan's space-goggles. And don't skip the bonus features - a different way to devolve. This DVD is ape-man nirvana.
The micing was good, although the bass was underemphasized and would have benefitted from a mic on Alan's bass drum. The audio saturated (distorted at loud passages) in a few places, but it did not prevent me from shouting the lyrics to many songs along with Mark and Bob 1.
There are two handheld cameras, one on each side of the stage, which got outstanding shots of de-evolution in process. There was a 3rd camera in or behind the audience but it has poor video quality. But I agree with the decision to cut in shots from this camera. It shows the whole stage at once, which is formidible scene at times.
If you love DEVO, you will not be disappointed with this DVD. The superb show far outweighs the minor audio and video imperfections.
I like that on the DVD-Video side you're given the choice of two very different treatments of what was clearly originally a mono recording. I much prefer the soundtrack treatment by Devo's Bob Casale which is an impressive and convincing recreation of the room ambience you'd expect from that venue. (You can choose stereo or 5.1 versions of both treatments). Chapters marks are placed perfectly and the titles are discrete and effective.
The CD side sounds great too. In every respect a superb product and an invaluable complement to their music video collection.
This one however takes you right back to their most successful stage in their career with a recently discovered live taping of their live show. The picture quality is acceptable - not perfect - considering it's been around since 1980. The sound quality is also good, but what is the biggest attraction to this DVD is the high level of energy that oozes from the band, who whip through a great set of songs with great character.
The entire set is on the DVD, with a couple of extras, which makes it a worthwhile addition to ANY Devo collection. From the first notes, it is impossible not to tap along, and if you know the words to many of their songs - like I do - you'll find yourself singing along as well. On the other side of this DVD is the audio of the show (so a normal CD) so you basically get 2 for the price of 1... excellent!!!
Buy it now and you won't regret it.
I can see the comment from the person who said it was out of sync - there are a few moments when the camera is far from stage where the sound is not equal to the movements, but the close up during the same son are, so this is not a big issue at all.
