Be aware that is a Region B/2 release.

I only know this because I just recently purchased a Region 1/A version (including 2CDs) for $32.98 from Amazon. FWIW, I think the Blu's PCM stereo tracks sound much better than the DTS 5.1 tracks.
The back cover indicates region A/B/C (and it's a Universal release, which are nearly always all-region). Amazon's listings for European releases often default to Region B/2 even when they're not.

My concern is that the fine print indicates that despite this being a blu-ray, the content is merely "upscaled" standard def.

That would be right for the era - the show would have been shot on standard definition videotape. But, and for me it’s a big but, the Blu-ray format allows for much higher quality audio than a DVD, and the extra space on a BD and superior compression codecs used also make for a much better quality presentation of the standard definition video than you’d get on a DVD. I don’t have this specific release but I have a few others of a similar vintage and there is definitely an improvement having it on a BD rather than a DVD.

I am curious as to which, if any, companies will compete with Amazon and have one or two day sales. Last year Criterion's own half price sale was on October 15, so that's one I am going to keep my eye on this week.

The Sweeney Todd Concert disc above also has a $2.52 coupon right now knocking it down to $15.33.

And this is off-topic, but Amazon has also had a price drop on the DVD release of The Good Fight: Season 4 from $29.99 to $25.49...AND, there is also a $5.50 coupon on that reduced price dropping it to $19.99.

That's a nice price. Bu would as project filmed for PBS in 2001 in 1.33:1 actually look all that much better than the DVD version? Do you have it? I know you're a Sondheim fan.

I love that concert, but it doesn't seem like something that would show that much benefit when upgraded to HD, so I haven't bothered to upgrade yet.

I don't have the DVD of the Sweeney Todd concert. So I ordered the Blu at that price. Along with The Good Fight: S4 DVDs.
