AppleJack Studios' notes:
This is the DVD version of the the previously released "Dem Bones" VCD. This is the same production as the VCD release, but the video and audio were encoded to the DVD standard from the original capture. The video was captured from a 1st gen VHS using an ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon video card, filtered with Adobe Premier and then encoded with TMPGEnc V2.56. The audio was also sourced from the same 1st gen video, and remastered by Rush-Signals Productions for excellent sound quality. Like most audience shot videos, this DVD has its high and low points. For starters, the sound quality is amazingly good. It was, in fact, the high quality audio, which provided the motivation to produce this VCD in the first place. The video quality is also excellent, coming from a 1st generation tape the picture is clear and crisp, the colors vibrant. Special thanks go to "J" for providing the video source! This is a fully produced DVD introduction menus and chapters for seamless presentation of the show plus the ability to skip to any track. The show is incomplete, missing the "Force Ten" opener and "Superconductor" which is cut after the first second or two. The camerawork is this video's biggest flaw. At times, the filmer has difficulty keeping the frame steady, and the opening track "Limelight" shows you right of the bat just how bad it can be. Most of the time, however, the filmer seems to get things locked in, and there are some nice steady shots of the stage and band members, smoothly following Alex' or Geddy's antics across the stage. Neil's drum solo is a particular treat; the filmer was located high on Geddy's side of the stage, and we get to enjoy great unobstructed close-ups of the master at work. The wide-angle stage shots are also nice, with the spectacular light shows during "Xanadu" and "La Villa Strangiato".
