We have the pleasure of reviewing the latest Tupac DVD "Live At The House Of Blues."

Overseer and myself put our heads together and even compared the old Japanese version to the new official US/European version. The Japanese version of the concert which was entitled "Untouchable : A Dynasty live in Concert" no longer appears to be available. First of all there is no question, this is the exact same show but both have footage that the other doesn't have. For example the Japanese one has a Suge Knight intro & a Danny Boy performance before Tupac kicks off. It also has Soopafly performing "I Dont Hang" and DPG doing "What Would You Do".

The new US DVD has one more Tupac performance (him doing "2 of Americaz Most Wanted" with Snoop and it has "Do What I feel" plus "Gz and Hustlaz".) It also has Daz & Kurupt doing a song from their then upcoming album "West Coast Aftershock" called "Me In Your World" (which ended up on Death Row's Greatest Hits Disk 2 Track 15) for which the live version has slightly changed lyrics with Daz dissing Dr Dre in it! It also has performances of "For My Niggaz & Bitches", "Doggfather" and "Gin & Juice" by Snoop.

We must emphasise that the quality on the new official Death Row release is far better than the Japanese one which seems to be essentially a poor quality bootleg in comparison in terms of both picture and sound.

I have to say the highlight of this DVD is when Tupac does "Hit Em Up" and disses Bad Boy, Mobb Deep and others for about 5 minutes out of anger before the song even begins. Also when Snoop performs his "Whats My Name" track he gets the whole House Of Blues erupting even Suge Knight can be seen dancing in the VIP area. The DVD ends with a bang as Snoop Calls Tupac on to the stage again for their collaboration, "2 of Americaz Most Wanted."

The quality is crisp and you can almost picture yourself being in the audience watching the legendary Tupac and all the other 30 people on stage with him (DPG, Outlawz, Bad Azz, Suge Knight, Jodeci and more)

The bonus material is the only reason for it not getting the 5 out of 5 stars from me as I was disappointed to see only the following music videos California Love (Remix), To Live and Die in LA, Hit Em Up, How Do You Want It (Concert Version) and I Aint Mad At Cha.

4 out of 5 stars a must have for all Tupac and DPG fans wheras for the Japanese version 1 out of 5 stars; of interest to collectors but not an enjoyable experience.
