Being a fan of classic rock, I was intrigued by a new release called Bickershaw Festival 1972, a 3 day concert in northwest England. Performers included the Grateful Dead, the Kinks, Donovan, Cheech and Chong and many others. The SRP is $29.99 (yikes) for a 90 minute disc, but never seeing any video of this festival I went ahead and purchased it.
   Well it seems that no film was professional shot for this show so all you get is about 5-10 minutes of home movies filmed by an audience member far away from the stage. This footage is scattered around the disc interspersed with photographs and other footage of the parking lot, backstage entrance, rock fans walking around in the mud, and the little neighboring whose aged residents didn't know what the hell was going on.
    The live audio is muddy, sounding like a third generation home recording and they also mix in studio recordings hoping you won't notice the difference. No songs are complete. Cheech and Chong get about 10 seconds before we go back to  a tour of the muddy parking lot.

Sounds like a really bad experience. I'm sorry for you. Let's stay away from this one everybody.
