The interview with Pete was great.  There was also an introduction from
Lerner that I suspect was only shown in the theaters (he talked about the
DVD being released "tomorrow").  That was the boring bit.

Naked Eye is all of a minute and a half in the middle of My Generation.
Can't that arrangement be revisited?  How many more copies of the festival
video are they going to sell?  What other songs are exclusive to it, if any?

> Yes, they played in the small hours of the last or next to last day.

I guess I'd have to see how much footage is missing, but I'd even prefer
crowd shots or stills or some kind of montage than a total lack of Amazing
Journey and Sparks.

> I'd rather it not be out of sequence either but I understand why and can
accept it.

If there's damaged or missing footage, I can accept that.  If it's because
Lerner still wants to sell the Message to Love DVD, or they just didn't want
to make the effort, I don't.

> I'd rather have a butchered up show of them in their prime on video as
opposed to nothing...

Of course, but why must we always choose.  Couldn't, just once, a Who
product come out that was done right, 100%.  OK, twice, The Kids Are Alright
DVD is a great product.
