The following links confirm that there will be 2 versions of the Making Of... DVD released - one as expected, the other along with a second disc containing the remastered version of the album, plus the special edition cut-and paste videos.

This makes sense and is a good idea, but how many times do we have to buy this album???? Why was the 30th anniversary special released when this package was coming 5 months later? This is the version that would have been the perfect release first time.

Whinge whinge whinge. Where's the real problem?

Personally, if I was to say there's anything wrong with it, there should be a version with a cd copy for completist's sake.

There really is no problem here, is there? Buy the docu on its own. Or buy the docu with a copy of the surround version of the album. Choice reigns supreme...

Peace,
Adam.

I'll agree with Adam here. Though I was very much against the contents of the 30th Anniversary edition of ANATO - not the concept itself - I'm really looking forward to this DVD release. I just know that I'm not going to pick up the edition with the album in it, that's all. Hell, I don't know if this'll even be released in America - if the only options are the 2-disc version or nothing, you can bet I won't go with the latter option.

I was expecting better features on the second disc - more about The Prophets Song or Bo Rhap.

Shame they didn't tell us about the second disc being the same as the 30th Anniversary one, I wouldn't have bought that then.

And that´s the reason I agree that it smells like a rip off. They shouldn´t release something, and release the-same-with-a-little-more a few months later.

Totally agree with Adam as well. And if you want to talk about rip offs, then paying £16.99 for something that you can get at Play.com for £11.99 is a rip off

Heres the link for the single disc version at £10.99

Is this the first 5.1 mix to be available in Dolby Digital? That might appeal to a few people. I bet this will appear for around £8.99 at some retailers, so I will definitely be shopping around.
