Granted , Jeff was there , he brought this great movie to us all , we know he loves the band but maybe he overdid it a bit in the past . What can someone say about a collection of film clips , only a few of which he was there to film ? The disc needed separate commentaries by the restorers , the surviving members of the band , their surviving earlier manager Chris Stamp ( Terence's brother ) plus their current manager Bill Curbishley . If you're gonna restore a film , please go to the effort with the commentary too . Most of these guys won't be around in another 30 years - get 'em while you can .
A missed opportunity . It should've been like the Lord of the Rings Extended Editions - a lot of separate tracks . Buy it for the music and visuals , though .
