    Hey Colin-
    The first disc of the deluxe edition of LIVE AT LEEDS
    is a little different from the original remasterd disc
    from 1994. The deluxe edition's first disc has some
    extra dialog between songs, and THE AMAZING JOURNEY
    was shifted to the second disc (all songs from TOMMY).
    I can't wait to pick up this 2 disc special edition.
    I've always loved the live versions of BABA O'REILLY
    and WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN. It sounds like a stuffed
    DVD and it will be great to watch it. [​IMG]

    Jon Astley put out some horrid remasters of Who material. Problem is that he loves to slather on lots of NoNoise to get rid of hiss. Audiophiles hate NoNoise for the same reason that videophiles hate edge enhancement -- the cure is worse than the disease. Taking out the hiss takes out useful sounds as well, generally resulting in a hollow, tinny sound with funky artifacts. Compare disc two of the Live At Leeds Deluxe Edition to a good boot of the same material to see what I mean. The DE sounds like it's coming out of a metal tube.

    He also performed the same "enhancement," along with dynamic range squashing to make everything louder, on the recent remaster of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass.

    Anyone had contact with John Albarian? In the production logs over at the Pioneer site, he posted an email address @dvdproducer.net, but my email to him got bounced due to excessive spam...
    I'd like to write an article to coincide with the DVD's release, so perhaps he'll check back here and find me. [​IMG]

    Try the alt.music.who newsgroup maybe. Brian Cady who posts there often -- a "who-ologist" -- would probably know how to contact him.

    Brian was also involved with the DVD production.

    I have a feeling a lot of the things you hoped for were not included due to rights issues or cost issues. I'm sure the Who doing a cover of a Beatles song would cost a lot.

    Didn't the laser disc have a bonus video on it?

    No doubt -- costs are always an issue.

    However, there are various outtakes that would not have cost anything more (or very little) -- such as the Kilburn concert (done specially for the original film, but they used the Shepperton footage instead). Plus other archival footage owned by the Who -- therefore not costing much.

    They could have done much more. Particularly after expectations were raised due to the Producer of the DVD asking for input from fans as to what to put on the bonus DVD (when the whole process began).

    I can guarantee you that not one fan asked for trivia games or an interview with Roger Daltrey or Jeff Stein. Or a documentary on the making of the DVD/restoration process -- yawn.

    In any event, I wonder how much it would cost to license one Beatles' song?

    So what's on the second disc of the two-disc SE? Just the documentary about restoring the film and the trivia game?

    There is no question that Entwistle is worth hearing separately. And is a valid tribute.

    But my point is, if they are mucking around in there anyway with isolated audio, how difficult would it have been to isolate audio on Pete and Keith too?

    Isolated Keith would be phenomenal too, even with his relatively poor playing very close to his death.
