Excerpt: Got this a couple of weeks ago, but this is the first I was able to give a listen. There are 3 Audio Mixes on here, LPCM Stereo, Dolby Digital True HD 5.1 and DTS Master Audio 5.1.

During a wild and satisfying weekend in Brighton, Jimmy engages in mob clashes with rival Rockers, enjoys a quick fling with the highly-desirable but normally- unattainable Steph and, after being arrested, shares a day in court with Ace Face, his Mod idol; but when he finally returns to...
Excerpt: Classic british youth drama , one of the most iconic film soundtracks of all time by the mighty who. Well, i am fairly happy with the results of this latest release blu-ray release, as someone who has owned this countless times on VHS , dvd twice & now hi-def, its pretty faithful to the source print & carries a nice healthy dose of film grain, flesh tones are always natural & colours rendered fairly stable.
