    I was initially doubtful about whether Dreamworks would put both versions on the DVD, and its great to see that they have done so.
    I held off the original DVD for this baby and now I can finally get my hands on it! [​IMG]

    YES! [​IMG] to the inclusion of both cuts.
    This is such a wonderful coming of age story, I still can't believe it made such a small splash.

    Awesome news (about both cuts). Kudos to Dreamworks, really putting out some fine releases this holiday season.

    Just noticed that Cameron Crowe's mum - Alice Crowe - will be on the commentary. Since Almost Famous is semi-autobiographical, its great to see her on the commentary track giving insights into the Crowe family.
    I hate to get ahead of the game, but this looks to be one juicy set!

    I have a question. On the second disk I can't exactly find deleted scenes with commentary. There is the 'concert' and the Stairway and the 'blues' thing. The concert has no other audio track that I could see and it and the Stairway one have intros.

    Are there more deleted scenes there that I can't find???

    Theo, I believe that most of the deleted scenes were reincorporated into the movie. I don't believe you can access them seperately. This is from memory...I'll have to break out the disc later on to be sure.

    I took the commentary to mean the audio introductions from Cameron Crowe.
