Zebra – The DVD (MVD/Visionwork)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C     Documentary: C+



Though they have not been heard form in decades by most of us, the New Orleans band Zebra is still together and now over 30 years old.  They have only issued so many albums (six?) and have finally issued their first DVD, with the brilliant title “The DVD” as if this were Superman - The Movie.


For fans, they’ll love the interviews, stills, music and stories, though everyone will like the segment early on about when and how they finally got a record contract.  The three members (Randy Jackson, Felix Hanermann, Guy Gelso) have their act together, are likable and know what music is, but this will appeal to the strictly Rock/Pop crowd at best.  Not bad, but I wish it were not so predictable and the music appealed to this critic more.  However, fans should be pleased enough.


The 1.33 X 1 image can be softer than a new production should be often, but has just enough good shots to save it from being worse.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has its flat moments, the music is the biggest victim and more than a few location audio moments are poor.  However, the combination could have been worse.  Extras include an audio interview, Felix’s Garage, DVD Promo and bonus interviews.
