    Hi all,

    Have noticed that the film based on the Who's Quadrophenia album is being given the special edition treatment. I had heard that the previous edition was a fairly shoddy port from the orginal VHS release with scenes missing etc. There was a R1 version which had a few extra features on it is this R2 release just a re-issue of that?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is supposed to be the full cut and seems to have some nice and worthwhile extras to go along with it. I just hope that it's released here in R1 not long after.
