Are these well done or were you disappointed?
As for the Mirrorball CD, it does not contain the whole concert.I'm not 100% sure about this, but isn't the CD a collection of performances from several different concerts rather than just a subset of the Mirrorball DVD/Video? I don't own it and have not heard it in a while, but for some reason I had that idea in my head.
On Mirrorball, stick with the normal 2-channel audio track because the 5.1 channel audio track is just too funky sounding. The video is okay, nothing too stunning.IIRC the Mirrorball 5.1 mix has no lead vocal in the center channel, thus the cause of much funkyness (in the bad sense of the word). I don't think this was a creative decision, as Sarah's vocal is much more distinct in the stereo mix. If there was a conscious decision to forego a lead vox in the center channel, I would think a wide front L-R spread of her voice would have been the way to go, and this did not seem to be the case. It's almost as if the L-R are support for a missing center channel vocal.
I think the Mirrorball was dropped by someone in the mixing/mastering, although I'm not sure. I was gravely disappointed when I rec'd the disc as a gift for the holidays a few years ago, and I returned it and got Fleetwood Mac: The Dance instead. What a great decision!

Sarah's tours (for the most part) all have the same set lists. I saw her 3 times on that tour. It's always the same. I also have many boots from it. All the same.
When it aired on Pay Per View originally, they had cut out two songs but reinserted them for the vhs/dvd.
They MAY have been several different concerts but it doesn't matter. They all had the same set.
