    Default "New" VH dvd listed on play.com?

    Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but has anyone seen this?

    http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/34767...s/Product.html

    Doesn't look too official to me......

    Does anyone have any further information on it?

    Cheers!

    It looks like a boot compilation. Be warned: This is a "Region 2" class DVD, and will not work on U.S./Canadian players.

    could be a boot compilation, as CC said. It could be a good portion of the US festival show.

    It looks a little like the US Festival setlist to me......

    If it is a boot, how the hell are a company like Play allowed to sell it?

    Hmmmmmm........

    You can if you have software that will play multi-region DVD's.

    I believe PowerDVD makes software such as this.

    Well it has a release date of 12-11-2007. So maybe someone had permission to do this. Also if your into video games there are tons released over seas that never make it here. The could be using overseas as a test market.

    1-you are probably throwing your money away if you get that video. it's just a bootleg that some company is trying to sell

    2-however, a program like DVD Decrypter can get rid of that Region issue

    You think as much as VH is into packaging something that takes little effort to make more money that they would put out a DVD/CD of this tour.

    Fans have been clamouring for a DVD/CD from the CVH catalog, and they are not going to get Dave sounding any better than he is now.

    Just my $.02.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Well, if Van Halen are going to release anything with Dave live officially, I'd much prefer something from the original band...

    I'm not interested in the current tour. Bring on a live release from Classic Van Halen!
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Uhmm, no. The mere fact that Amazon carries something is no guarantee of authorised release. Simply peruse all of the live Rory Gallagher releases, one of which has been authorised by his estate since his untimely death.

    Well, it's also being advertised for sale at HMV Japan's site.

    Where it's being sold is beside the point. The "label" is an outfit known as "Classic Rock Productions", which specializes in unauthorized "collections" of various groups. So it comes down to one's particular definition of bootleg or pirated ( a term more to do with copying legitimate releases and selling them with substandard packaging).

    The fact still remains that this release is not sanctioned by the band, so it must be recognised as "unauthorised", and as such offers no guarantee of quality.

    Caveat emptor: Buyer Beware.

    Classic Rock Legends = Poor Quality / unauthorized garbage

    It's probably not far in quality from this release;
