After having the DVD set out for a while, Eagle has decided to issue their extended version of Carlos Santana Presents Blues At Montreux 2004 on Blu-ray.They did an abbreviated DVD, but the full-length version was covered at this link:

So is the Blu-ray an improvement.Absolutely yes.The 1080i 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is clearer enough to make the upgrade with better color, detail and depth, though there is still motion blur and other detail issues, plus Video Black still has some issues.The sound is even more of a jump, with the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) lossless 5.1 mix far outdoing the DTS, Dolby Digital 5.1 and PCM 2.0 Stereo from the DVD and the Dolby Digital 5.1 and PCM 2.0 Stereo on this Blu-ray.

 

Though we have had dramatic improvements before, this is the biggest jump in audio performance we have had between a DVD and Blu-ray for a concert yet.A fine set of shows all now on one disc and with playback better than ever, this will become a fan and music loverís favorite.

 

There are no extras, but you can read more about other Eagle Santana titles at these links:
