Pressing Notes

To Roast a Chicken was mastered from videotape source. The audio and video transfer are typical with video tape sources used by DiscoVision and are presented here very sharp and crisp. The audio transfer, which normally would have garnered 4 stars, looses one point for an annoying background whine. It's possible the error is in the source material. While I can't imagine anyone actually giving a chicken roaster a "butter message" due to the health concerns of the 90's, the program is still timeless. The live performance (one assumes it must have been live) contains several spoken errors, but this is about the DiscoVision appearance, not Ms. Child's performance.
