Remastered Shadows and Light released -- Jaco near his peak

I got the new Guitar Player magazine today, and learned that the video of Joni Mitchell's 1980 concert Shadows and Light, released back then on VHS and LP, has been remastered and released on DVD. I just ordered a copy from Amazon for $14.99. The show featured an amazing band -- Don Alias, Michael Brecker, Lyle Mays, Pat Metheney, and Jaco Pastorius. I remember when I first heard it -- the first number after the intro with Joni singing with the Persuasions a capella, "In France They Kiss On Main Street," has some of the most fantastic bass playing I've ever heard -- the way he just struts and swaggers and drives the whole thing just has to be heard to be believed -- Jaco near the height of his powers, before the steep decline he went into in the following years.

I got it earlier this year, also paid about $40 for it. It was worth it; I've always been a Joni fan anyhow, and Jaco makes it perfect. I figure it's cost me about $2 for each time I've watched it or shown it to someone else.
