Disc two, exclusive to the Blu-ray 25th anniversary release, includes Spinal Tap's Live Earth concert performance in 2007. Introduced by Marty DiBergi himself, the band is reunited in support of Al Gore's marathon rock fundraiser at Wembly Stadium. Looking a even more long-in-the-thooth, but with as-always perfect hair, they perform "Stonehenge" from the 1983 "tour" in front of its biggest-ever audience. Also included on disc two is an interview by National Geographic Network for it's Stonehenge Decoded series with Nigel (Guest) who is an "expert" on the origins of Stonehenge. It is a dry-as-a-bone deadpan, flat out funny 2007 interview.
The Blu-ray recording has a video resolution of 1080p and an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. It’s a very nice transfer, and the picture is excellent. There is an occasional artifact or halo, but even those seems to add to the slightly homemade feel of the film.
One could want no better sound (even cranked up to "11") than provided by the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. It provides a front-row seat and excellent audio, whether in the concert sequences and in the rapid-fire dialogue-heavy scenes.
This is Spinal Tap is a classic comedy film from the genius of Rob Reiner, Harry Shearer, Christopher Guest and Michael McKean. Whether you've seen the film or not, if you appreciate sly, dry and dead-on satire, you should give this a try. Spinal Tap is scheduled to appear The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Tuesday, July 28.
