Danu – One Night Stand (Concert)
Sound: B- Extras: C- Concert: B-
Danu is another solid traditional Irish music band that
continues to build what is a segment of the music market more popular than you
might think. One Night Stand is
a program of mostly music that runs 3 hours, 15 minutes. The music is fine if you like this type, but
will seem longer if you do not. The
interview pieces are not bad, but the music is the majority of the program and
it is not bad. Some of the track titles
are in Celtic.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1/16 X 9 image is not
bad for being shot on film, but has detail limits. The Dolby Digital 5.1 Stereo has limited surround information,
but sounds good just the same. The box
lists a PCM sound option, but it is not here.
The only extra is access to six clip sections of interview and concert
work in the body of the concert. We
will count it as such since it helps clarify the band’s work. There is supposed to be subtitles for their
English, but they are not here and really not necessary.
