Just bought this with some wedding money at HMV (Yes I'm married now) and it is GOOOOOOOD! It's nice to actually see Mike playing these older songs. The only other older concert I have of MO is the Knebworth video. It was truly a fun experience. Although, I don't know about any of your copies, but on mine they cut out a fair chunk of Tubular Bells Part 1 (specifically, the beginning of the Blues section)! Other than that it was very well done and very fun to watch!

Now all that's left that I have to get is the Exposed DVD.

I just got it too and I think it's great. The overall performance is way better than the Exposed DVD.

Sadly, the Montreux version of Ommadawn doesn't really take off. I'm no sure why though, it just doesn't.

The QE2 material is better live than on record. Excelent versions of Conflict and Taurus I.

The Encore contains a few hilarious audience shots; youngsters doing freaky dances to "Punkadiddle"! Surreal...
