|I prefer TB 2003, except for the John Cleese announcing-of-instruments. I would have preferred Alan R.|
I don't remember whether I already stated this elsewhere, but I always had the feeling that the announcements of instruments were supposed to sound funny. John Cleese is funny, to me. By comparison, Alan Rickman (who I know as a "serious" actor) is almost too serious.
@ HR lover: the Ultimate Edition is worth something only for the 5.1 mix on the DVD, which isn't available anywhere else. If you aren't bothered by 5.1 mixes but you like Mike's 2009 remix of the piece (because that's what the 2009 re-issue is ultimately about), just get the 2-CD Deluxe Edition. It's really cheap on Amazon.
