This is definitely a lower generation quality than the best version we have as the picture quality is way better and noticeably clearer...even in full screen. In fact, the quality is almost as good as the tracks we've seen on the Absolute Greatest bonus DVD. The audio quality is also slightly better too so this must be a lower generation copy.

I'm going to contact this guy to see where he got this from.

You haven't noticed the colour flashes/pulsing then?
Pittrek's edition is better on the whole.

I'm agreed with the above posts.  This one doesn't look good.  It's just the same footage that has been circulating for years.

Are you kidding? It's clear as hell and better than anything I've seen of that specific song. Yes there are some color issues but overall it is a big improvement.

At first glance I was inclined to agree with Jamster RE the picture quality, but then realised I was watching on a small screen so enlarged the damn thing and it looked just the same as the other versions I have seen BUT, imho, has LESS colour pulsing.  RE the sound, the version Jamster has linked to is far ahead - on all DVD versions I have, I have to put the speakers up to the highest to get anything (if played on my laptop), but with this one the sound is as clear as a bell, and that's with the sound at a medium level.  I guess it's all jusr personal opinion, really.

I don't know how anyone can judge this video on YouTube's full screen mode - it has been converted to flash video and obviously there is a quality reduction from the original digital upload.  The video looks good quality, probably not far from the PAL VHS Master.  Additionally it has not been deinterlaced.

At 720 resolution and full-screen, it's exactly the same quality as the DVD version that circulated here a while ago. My bet is that it's from the same source.

Are you seriously suggesting the original digital full screen video is the exact same on youtube?

It can be, if the user chooses to upload it in 720dpi.  Youtube has greatly improved over the last couple years.

I should get off my arse and download Pittreks version of this concert. I still haven't seen it all and from what I hear Pittrek's is the best one going around at the moment!

The Japanese re-broadcast of Now I'm Here and CLTCL is the best version I've seen. Shame it's only two songs!

I'm seriously suggesting the 720dpi version was transferred from the version shared here, and no, that does not make it "the exact same", but an identical copy one generation down.
