Performance:   Sonics:
This is a great performance of a perennial concert favourite, and is a welcome re-release in high resolution - the SACD of this title being long out print.

However, fans of surround music will unfortunately still need to track down the SACD as Decca/Universal, in the wisdom, have chosen to omit the 5.1 mix from the Blu-ray release. That's right, you get three different flavours of 2.0 (LPCM, DTS, Dolby), but no surround presentation.

Quite why this is the case is anyone's guess, but it is a massive disappointment and is the reason I have docked three stars from the sonics rating.
