but it was to expensive for me. From my perspective I would be glad more of having the third bonus compact disc from the Super Deluxe Edition and of excluding the video disc. Pity! Furthermore, to my disappointment the DVD is of the NTSC (normally 720×480 pixels) format instead of PAL (normally 720×576 pixels). When one decides to publish an original footage of 4×3 aspect ration, the resulting quality is deteriorated (effectively 640×480 pixels if one deducts the black vertical bars). The employed PAL system would offer us the maximal quality level of 720×576 pixels and not the blatant 640×480. Apparently Cherry Red (and regrettably not only they), do deliberately detriment (reduce) the originally shot 4×3 images of standard definition so to put them into the 720×480 frames of the NTSC format. Thus, we cannot enjoy the maximal possible quality level of the standard definition. I reckon, many labels proceed that way because the North American DVD players cannot cope the PAL standard discs, whereas the European ones are able to play back the discs of both video format I mentioned. The second reason of such attitude may be just a need to reduce cost (to not releasee separate European and North American versions). In such circumstances it is hard to believe for me that the original 4×3 videos would be ever released in the PAL system (maximal possible definition of 720×576 pixels). Lost forever, I'm afraid!
This is for the deluxe box set.
The picture disk vinyl in this set it beyond awful.
Sound quality sounds like it was recorded in a tin shed, and the crackles on every song, sound like an explosion in a rice crispy factory.
Also as others have commented the dvd footage has been downgraded for NTSC.
This could have been so great, an opportunity missed.
