  1. Hi,
    On the first movement of the concerto, comparing to the original CD release, at exactly 2:45 there is a jump to 7:00 or in other words, all the amazing and wonderful orchestral development from 2:45 up to 7:00 is missing in this DVD. This, to my view, destroys all the wonderful structure that mr Lord had originally composed, which culminated to the first electric guitar entrance. I just would like to ask: Why this otherwise extraordinary DVD did not include the full concert ??????

  2. Adding up to my previous comment, I would like to kindly ask if the Double CD release (the one with similar cover) has the full concert, or is it the same cut-edited version as this one on DVD?

    thank you.
