I can guarantee that this was a poor marketing decision and not what the remix engineer delivered. I know this because I was the remix engineer, and I was asked to deliver the stereo only mix that was originally done for the broadcast and pay-per-view version.
I encourage buyers to take up issue with DVD distributors who continue to market such poor quality.

The DVD is awesome, and I totally loved "The Water is Wide" performance. simple beautiful.
Totally recommend it.
PS. Don't you think that Jewel seemed to be pissed with Sarah M during the song? Did you notice the body language? And they did not give each other hugs after.
The picture quality of this DVD is also quite stunning. If you remember seeing the VH1 Behind The Music, this definitely has a lot more content instead of just short clips and commercials.
One thing that I did find slightly awkward is that this DVD comes a bit late after Lilith Fair has been performed each summer of 1997-1999. I personally feel that it should have came a little earlier, around midway, concerning the documentary existed, just not on DVD.
Either way, I'm still happy that it exists, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoy's these women artists, or has attended Lilith Fair because it really is a great concert! It's never the same as seeing it Live, but it's a good entry point especially if you're new to Lilith and what it's all about. It's a concert with a behind the scenes look of what made Lilith Fair so popular.
I'm also happy that we're able to see something new (enough) from Sarah to keep us entertained as she takes her break to work on her new album. I've listened to Building A Mystery quite a bit from Mirrorball, so listening to this version made the song "new" again. It sounded great! Don't forget Sarah's "know it all...grin" as she sings the lyrics...Beautiful. Thanks Sarah!!!
The audio quality (at least on my 2-channel system) is excellent. Unfortunately, the video suffers from very visible compression artifacting in several places.
Overall, I think this DVD is too little, too late. It feels like more of a last-ditch attempt to profit off the Fair than an attempt to preseve it.
