2 stars I'm sorry to have to say this about this long awaited DVD, but "What were the producers thinking?" On disc one we get Lucky Man and Karn Evil 9 #3 from Cal Jam exactly the same as the on Disc 2. What up wid dat? I saw the whole California Jam in 1974 when a friend of mine's dad working for a video supply company had a two inch professional open reel video tape deck that we recorded the whole ELP set on. (Long gone I'm sure!) Why take clips of this stuff and edit the crap out of it? If the whole concert exsists, (I don't know if it does,) it should be shown unedited. Nothing but a tease. Is this a way to come out with the whole thing later and make DOUBLE the Money? Sure, the old stuff on Disc 1 (ELP in Pictures) is interesteing, especially the rehearsal video, however, a great rendition of Palmer doing Tocatta and other material is OUT OF SYNC!!! Come on, I mean, this IS 2005, right? I can take the audio from that myself, put it through a digital delay and sync it up in myself bedroom! Your telling me in this age of digital technology you can't take the time to sync this stuff up? Or does taking the time eat into your profit margin??!!! SHAME ON YOU!!! Give us a whole Calitornia Jam and break even and I'll forgive you!
