Unfortunately Amazon is showing the cover picture of the TV version but customers are likely to receive the other one with a completely different, black and white photo, of Bruce in jeans and white shoes leaning against a wall - this is the cinema version.
The original TV version with live performances instead of the ones dubbed on from the album (which anyone interested in this DVD is likely to already own) was something I have always wanted to have. I do have a mono recording I made on reel-to reel at the time it was broadcast in 1969 but I can't play it now and when I ordered this I was really looking foreword to seeing and even more to HEARING it again (hopefully in stereo this time).
Admittedly not all the numbers were performed live - those which are heard over outdoor footage were dubbed on - but at least those in the studio when the musicians are seen playing were actually heard recorded live.
If this DVD had been the original BBC version (in which Bruce is also heard playing Messiaen instead of the dubbed on Widor) I would not have hesitated to give it 5 stars as a must-buy for anyone - and I would have taken the trouble to write this review a couple of years back.Read more ›

This video is a typical Bristish version of movies. It is dark but shows the real nonHollywood side of England, after World War II.Published on September 6, 2013 by Gilbert Cardenas
I think I would have enjoyed this much more if I had seen it when it was first produced. Perhaps I am spoiled by modern production techniques and practices. Read morePublished on April 29, 2013 by Jack Keck
