On the 21st of October 2007, one of
Australia's most varied and diverse benefit concerts was
organized for Max
Merritt, a leading founder of Rock and Roll in Australia during
being admitted to hospital in the US for kidney failure, Max had
reached the bottom of not only his career but also his life.
Fortunately for Max, the impression he made on the musical
community and society led
a group of his friends and acquaintances to get together
in order to organise a benefit concert for our fallen musician.
Held at the Palais
Theatre in St. Kilda Victoria Australia, this packed out benefit concert
featured some of Australia's best that included James Reyne,
Daryl Braitwaite, Vanessa Amorosi and even the Delltones to name
a few of the stars.
over 25 Australian recording artists, over 50 musicians and more
than 70 crew, this concert extravaganza is the perfect
for lovers of classic Australian rock and best of all, with a
running time of 186 minutes, the DVD is worth every penny and is
true music to the ears.
DVD contains good video quality, however where it really excels
is with the Dolby Digital 5.1 sound which almost makes it like you are
part of this historic concert.
A Brilliant DVD compednium!
