There was a review of the DVD appeared in 'Hot Press' magazine around the time of it's proposed release. The reviewer certainly appeared to have seen the footage judging by her review. I tried to e-mail her as to whether she'd actually seen a review copy, or if she knew any more about a new release date, but I got no response.
I would assume that if any promotional copies were produced for review purposes then the video footage would've leaked out somewhere, somehow.
It really saddens me that there is so little available footage. This is even worse, because it's pro shot and produced, but we probably won't see it. There really isn't enough out there. I mean, I've got my bootlegs and taped segments off of various tv appearances (As well as "Oye," "Who Put the M", "Live in Dallas", "Introducing Morrissey", "Smiths: The Singles", "Paris is Burning", and "These Things Take Time".) but really, it's a damn shame how much hunting around you have to do to get your hands on it. Theres' something about being able to SEE him. Especially, older footage. Oh well..
Someone narc'd on me and Rapidshare removed ALL my files. I had uploaded 30+ Morrissey/Pulp shows. Swines! Ever since I've been back to work, I haven't had the time to re-up any shows. If someone really wants something, they are welcome to PM me. I'll see what I can do on the weekends. I HATE commuting!
I know, I know I sound like a broken record - but I would have purchased the DVD of the Hollywood Bowl DVD or even a proper CD release. Sadly, Decca released "Swords" which I just cannot bring myself to buy as I own all the tracks already and have been squandering my money on food and heat.
I was pissed off too when this live DVD did not make it. We just got a live cd we now need a live dvd as some time has passed since Who put the M....
Hopefully in the new year as i do not forsee any new releases in the year to come
