Released exclusively on the long since discontinued and deleted formats of VHS and LaserDisc, the following has NEVER been released on DVD until NOW!
This REMASTERED DVD is sourced directly from the original high quality LaserDisc to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it transferred from the long since deleted LaserDisc from OVER THIRTY FOUR years ago.
Background: The Complete live performance by Pete Townshend’s Deep End band, at the Brixton Academy, was first released in it’s entirety on VHS in UK, Australia, Germany and France ONLY and was not released in the USA in any format at this length. The ONLY USA release was a version called “mini concert” (5 tracks) on VHS. The ONLY LaserDisc of this ENTIRE classic concert was exclusively released in Japan. Much later around 1997 a HEAVILY edited version og the concert fffffwas also issued in the DVD and CD formats with completely different artwork. Again, the only NTSC release of the entire show was a Japanese LaserDisc which this REMASTERED DVD comes from. Even now the USED LaserDisc of this rare concert goes for OVER $180.00. Still to this day, this vintage concert has NEVER been officially released here in America in ANY format, not on VHS, not on LaserDisc, not on DVD until NOW! So here it is for the first time ever on DVD for all the Who/Townshend Collectors.
Another original offer from your team at MVR!
