A few years back, Olivier must have been considering creating a forum for the double DVD release.  His eventual decision must have been: "Meh......."  :D

Whenever most of us have had any observations, about TBIII in particular, we've left them in threads elsewhere.  I've not exactly rushed in here myself - held these thoughts for years before I joined and mentioned them in passing a couple of times, but time's a marching.

So what would you take over the other?  I've never seen the Spanish broadcast but could easily imagine, as it is with TBII at Edinburgh Castle, that I might prefer the version I taped at the the time.

Not everyone will have access to the VHS release - but it's got a certain something.  I call it bass... ;)

Then there's that lovely DVD.   All that detail, and two options for sound.  Both of which excise our shout of "TUBULAR BELLS!" - well, I'd joined in by "BELLS!", anyway!

I don't have the VHS, and my VCR is broken, so I can't comment on that. :D I have the DVD, it's excellent, and I have a bootleg DVD of the Spanish broadcast (including only the extra stuff which is not on the official DVD) which was very kindly sent to me by a Spanish fan. So, the DVD does it for me. :cool: It's very nice to see Mike playing all of the guitar parts on the same guitar, which sounds very like all other guitars. :D A.k.a. when technology does miracles. :)

I've only seen the DVD version, but maybe it's time for a blu-ray edition? with lot's of extras? they could even have the live performance of TB1 aswell.
