This video has been re-released on DVD and on CD in 2002 by the label Classic Rock Legends. I have mixed feelings about this reissue. At least, this concert is available again now. But the packaging is very shoddy: Besides the nondescriptive title and cover picture, the booklet doesn’t give any details about musicians, recording date and venue. Instead, it elaborates on other DVDs on the same label which are probably equally bad packaged.
