It seems that some fairly substantial changes have been made in the special features to be included in next month’s DVD release of “Stars: The Best of Videos 1992-2002.”
It seems that the full Vicar Street concert from November 2000, which was listed in several pieces of pre-release promotion (American sales sheet,French sales sheet) has been removed from the upcoming release. However, it hasn’t been removed entirely — the DVD will now contain only “Shattered” from Vicar Street (arguably the best song from that performance anyway).
In its place, the production crew has inserted a few new extra features into the DVD, which were not reported on the earlier sales sheet. The current list of extra features is listed below, with newly-announced additions highlighted in bold:
1. Dreams(Director: Nico Soultanakis)
2. Ridiculous Thoughts (Director’s Cut: Samuel Bayer)
3. When You’re Gone (Director’s Cut: Jake Scott)
4. Just My Imagination(Performance Only)
5. Analyse (Director’s Cut – Original version)
1. Daffodil Lament 1994 Astoria
2. No Need to Argue 1995 MTV Unplugged
3. Empty 1994 Astoria
4. Sunday 1996 Tour
5. Shattered 2000 Vicar Street
– Documentary: LOVE LIFE & ROCK N’ ROLL (1999) *
– Interactive slideshow
* Note: Also previously titled “Love & Rock ‘n’ Roll”
As you can see, an alternate version of “Just My Imagination” (just the band’s performance footage), the unforgettable MTV Unplugged version of “No Need to Argue,” and “Shattered” from Vicar Street are all new additions to the DVD.
It’s unknown if the late changes are due to video problems found in late production, but it is a strong possibility.
