Overview

Music in High Places: Ryan Adams--Live in Jamaica works in similar fashion to the series' other DVD releases. The 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer provides an impressive avenue for viewing the natural scenery of Jamaica. The beaches, palm trees, and colorful waters shine nicely, and everything appears clearly. There are limitations to the source material, which does not match the best film transfers, but it still generally succeeds. This disc provides a 5.1-channel DTS transfer that definitely showcases the wealth of sounds in Jamaica. The acoustic tunes spring from all sides and enhance the listening experience. The clarity level is extremely high, corresponding with expectations for a DTS track. Only slightly less effective is the 5.1-channel Dolby Digital version, which nearly matches the power, but falls a bit short in complexity. The release also contains a solid 2.0-channel Dolby Surround transfer. Two short featurettes appear on this release and slightly enhance moments already seen in the main presentation. "Jamaica: The Real Story" lasts about seven minutes and provides goofy moments of the Ryan Adams being silly, the crew eating some interesting fish, and other odd scenes. The second featurette offers about eight minutes of Adams and Toots preparing for their performance. Viewers not as familiar with Adams should also enjoy an informative text biography, which provides considerable biographical material, even while praising the star. Finally, an option exists to watch only the music, which reveals an additional song--"To Be Young (is to be sad, is to be high)."
