Watch the original, which is included on the DVD. Director's cut is rubbish.
on 19 September 2016
The original has long been a favourite of mine. And luckily it's included on the DVD. And it's as good as ever.
As with any director's cut, it's been ruined. Poor editing, poor camera shots, with a load of interviews with the obviously stoned musicians and I can't make out what they're saying. Well we knew they were stoned, why enhance it in the video when all we want is the original recording?
Why can't the directors leave well alone? The original is a masterpiece, and we don't want to see the obvious camera shots along the rails, focus on the drummer when the keyboard player is doing his bit. The video interludes are nothing like the original, and quite frankly rubbish.
Orignal - masterpiece. Director's cut - rubbish.
