Audience film from the first night in Rotterdam 1979. This video is a compilation of a few different sources made by Peter Vanek. He did a very good job. He used the parts of the Japanese TV documentary from 2004, an unconfirmed gen copy of a Dutch TV special and the main source comes from the 8 mm audience film. For the main audience source Peter synched the audio from an alternate audience source to the video, so most of the audio comes not from the original video. The sound quality is unfortunately not so good, but listenable. The image quality is also not so good, but it's an old recording and very valuable to have. I'm glad that the audience film is in colour! Note that all the songs are cut. Some songs are only very short segments, but at least something than nothing. This DVD contains some bonus material. Such as behind the stage footage, interviews, soundcheck and a picture gallery. Most of the bonus material comes from the Japanese 2004 documentery. No copy errors. Not sourced from VCD/SVCD.
