Recently landed on my doormat was this little item I had completely forgotten all about ordering.
Please post your thoughts, comments & observations.
Sadly no DTS or even LPCM, just Dolby Digital.

Given the regard people have for the Avalon (and Boys and Girls) sacd, I have to assume people won't bother to comment on terrible surround discs. For the record:
2nd concert has no surround at all. 1st is Dolby Digital only and iit gets worse. DD mix is not only ambient, but likely the lowest volume rear channels I have heard.
2nd show had better sound quality and better performances (with possible exception of bassist on earlier show). Decent synth surround with vario-matrix.

Avalon was my favorite album in the late 80's so I bought Bete Noire album as soon as I found it. This live show doesn't capture the feel of the album for me, sound quality not great either, but the disc was cheap so ok as a momento.
I'll vote 5 purely for the music. "Surround" gets a zero.
