  1. A very good sounding (and well-edited) collection of material that keeps up the needed momentum that most of the previous concert videos lacked. It’s not Roxy, but it’ll have to do til then…I like it a lot; just wish there was a 2nd DVD of the rest of the evening!

  2. Wow, it’s been a while since I posted a review, but it really is nice to be back again.

    This one is short and sweet: honestly folks, I was more than a little disappointed in the sound quality on this “Torture….” DVD. The 1981 Palladium material has been circulated around for quite some time, and I watched a previous boot that had twice as good a mix as this official FZT release. I also consider this a disappointment sound-wise, because Dweezil’s re-mix for the “Baby Snakes” DVD was so wonderful.

    I also think that the excerpts of this concert that Frank included on the “Dub-Room Video” DVD also feature a much better sound mix.

    SO–It’s OK if you are a completist who just wants to see the whole thing on a half-way watchable release.

    Not up to the sound-mix standard of recent FZ DVD releases.

  3. I didn’t like it.
    Too much red.
    The whole program seemed forced and mechanical.
    Including the facts of the release.
    Frank seems pissed off most of the show, though he loosens up some later for the audience’s sake. The whole show has maybe two highlights for me. I have yet to be able to withstand a complete single viewing, end to end.
    However, Frank did it. He wrote it, taught the band, rehearsed the material, hired the moving company, set up the arrangements, hired the band, booked the gigs right and hired the people to shoot the freakin film and then edited the tape. Right?
    So in that there must be some merit.
