This was the second of Davids shows in London, i'd pretty much finished a two HD cam edit of this show when another source was seeded on Yeeshkull. Whilst this 3rd source was incomplete i used it to fill a few gaps in the 2 camera edit. Only approx 20 minutes of footage from the 3rd camera was used.
Video and audio (used from camera 1 ) are excellent quality and video is only slightly let down by the very low lighting that the venue has during performances. The strobes and lights during echoes were a test for the HD cameras and that track has been rendered at 8500kbps, there may still be slight signs of pixelation though. Disc 1 is chapter indexed, has main menu plus track selection menu, Disc 2 is chapter indexed but no menus.
The release of this DVD is in no way meant to be a substitute for the official DVD that will be released from the same show later this year, it was made by the fans for the fans and should be shared freely and not bought or sold.
Please do not re encode any or part of this dvd to a lesser quality format such as you tube, DIVX, VCD, MP3 etc
