I can't figure out Eagle Rock. They have some great releases such as Queen's Live Aid, Dream Theater's Live At Luna Park and then they seem to come out with odd releases when it comes to the Rolling Stones releases.
Take this Sweet Summer Sun release. Two of the three "Bonus" tracks which were part of the concert but pulled to make them bonus tracks. Even then, it is still not the complete show [Tumbling Dice missing].
Odd? There is more. The CD release lacks 2 tracks that were in this release. More weird? They package the 3LP version with DVD audio [maybe for an audio officianado or something].
[Crossfire Hurricane was another odd one where the European release had extras… Read more

For those who've collected the previous 4 seasons, this is definitely the weakest in content. Aside from the 20 episodes there really is no bonus/extra content other than the "Blu-ray exclusive limited time" Jedi archive. There are no documentaries. There are no extended episodes.
To make things even worse, originally with the cancellation of the series, there were already some episodes partially or fully completed for season 6. These were at one point going to be added to season 5 to finish off the series correctly instead of the cliffhanger. But they aren't included.
Now it was announced on October 11, 2013 that there will be a season 6 which will be on TV in 2014.

It is too bad I didn't think of taping the whole concert on my old VHS player as it seems this release still is not the full concert [unsure if for any legal reasons]. Some portions are still chopped off like Def Leppard's set [less one track], Pinball Wizard, etc.
Queen's website claims the stereo is uncompressed. Reviewers say it's compressed.
Screen is in standard definition. I guess very little to do for a 21 year old video.
A few extras but really not much is different from the original DVD release.
Squeezing a reported 4.5 hours on a Blu-ray probably reduced the video quality of the release.
The Blu-ray on amazon.ca is way overpriced.
