For some reason I
love this bootleg. I know it's incomplete with it's
49 minutes. But the setting and the energy gets to
me. This was recorded at the Festival of Ballooning
on July 31, 2011. 3 days earlier Meat Loaf had
collapsed on a Pittsburgh stage. The sun was burning
hot on this afternoon at the festival but still Meat
Loaf is rockin' hard. He sounds and looks energetic.
The video is wobbly but the view on stage is great.
It seems to be an older camera as the picture is
full screen (4:3) and when the zoom is used the
picture gets pixilated. But again the view is great.
The audio is based on several sources. The video had
terrible sound and new audio of the concert was
placed over the video audio. Because the audio files
had a different bit rate than the picture the video
goes a little out of sync a few times but not too
much. There is a lot of crowd cheering going on but
the sound is overall clear and loud enough. The set
list contains the great hits of Meat Loaf. So it's
very easy to put this on. All in all I'm happy with
the bootleg. 3 out of 5 stars
