"CHATSWORTH, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Aug. 31, 2005 Image Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: DISK), a leading independent licensee, producer and distributor of home entertainment programming in North America, today announced the October 4, 2005 release of the 1969 rock film "Cream Farewell Concert," in a special Extended Edition DVD. Presented by producer and Cream's then-manager Robert Stigwood ("Tommy," "Grease," "Saturday Night Fever"), and directed by Tony Palmer ("200 Motels," "Wagner"), "Cream Farewell Concert" was filmed at London's Royal Albert Hall on November 26, 1968, the same 8,000-seat venue where the seminal '60's British super group reunited to play for capacity crowds in May of 2005, generally acknowledged as one of the "must-see" events of the decade. Image Entertainment's "Cream Farewell Concert" Extended Edition DVD contains the 80-minute version of the film -- a home video premiere -- which restores three songs cut from the previously available 48-minute broadcast version: "Crossroads," "Sitting on Top of the World," and "Stepping Out"; both versions are included on the DVD. In addition, the DVD offers three audio options: Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS Digital Surround Sound, and the original monaural soundtrack. The film itself is a heady mix of concert footage and incisive interviews with the band, set to colorful lighting effects by UK underground artist Mark Boyle, who created lighting designs for such touring acts as The Jimi Hendrix Experience and The Soft Machine during rock music's heyday of the late 1960's and 1970's.
