Director Allen Hughes mainly talks about handling the actors, Director Albert Hughes mainly talks about the look of the film.
But obviously both tracks end up covering some of the same aspects.

Both tracks are very candid and honest. It's a huge shame that these tracks never made it to any other format except Laserdisc as they are both required listening for fans of the film.

There is also a commentary track on the Director's Cut DVD / Blu Ray - from The Hughes Brothers, producer Darin Scott, screenwriter Tyger Williams and co-stars Ryan Williams and Larenz Tate that is pretty damn good, and it replicates the Criterion style when a track has multiple speakers - with each speaker being introduced before they say anything.

Between these two Laserdisc tracks and the DVD / Blu Ray track, there is a wealth of information to be had.

Note on the Laserdisc: it is the unrated directors cut and it's the same cut that is on the directors cut DVD and Blu Ray.
