What are your thoughts on it?
Will pick up the 2CD, unless I get lucky and that Christmas Elf job happens, then I may as well buy the box!

Why on earth is the Blu-ray/DVD arranged to have bonus tracks? Why isn't it arranged like it was played start to finish. The show did not have bonus tracks. It was a show start to finish. At least it is a complete show with the bonus tracks. It is important to have a concert DVD be the concert. In order show it in order, the DVD will have to be stopped, moved to the bonus tracks played, then moved back to the show to complete it. The show was two sets. Like pulse it could have been arranged set one DVD one, set two DVD two. There was an intermission so switching DVD's is kinda like being there. Stopping and starting to get to bonus tracks is not. Its an oymoron to call them bonus tracks, they are just tracks that were actually played at the show.

Totally agree with you! This is probably why I won't be rushing out to purchase the Blu-Ray. I'll definitely order the triple vinyl as thankfully that's in the correct order. Quite frankly we see too much of this crap with live releases. Musicians and record companies bitch and moan about bootlegging and such, yet take a live performance, rip the order to shreds (Pulse CD1 springs to mind) and then charge you daft money to buy it. Just give us the concert as it is performed! Idiots ](*,)

I suppose, according to rontoon, the band liked what they had selected way back in 1988 for the concert film, and apart from restoring Shine On to its full length, they made the decision to keep the "movie" to a considerable length.

Personally, I don't really like the decision either, but it's better than not having them at all (yes, I'm looking at you, "The Girl in the Yellow Dress" from David's Pompeii movie...)
