    "22 Years Later... The Return Of The Son Of Nothing" (An "In Floyd We Trust" Production IFWT DVD-007)
       
    Other versions I've seen:
    Untitled: "Massey Hall - MJP001" - The same source as the above, but from a different transfer. Claims to be of better quality: although encoded at a slightly higher bitrate (at about 5Mbps) and the picture has slightly more contrast, it is virtually the same quality as "22 Years Later...". This one is incomplete: only the first set is available, because when the creator of the DVD found that the same source is already available, he decided not to share the second set.

    Rosemont Theatre, Rosemont, Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Audience cam Best version:
    "The Last Dominoes in Chicago" - Version A
    • Filmed by jedi (apparently the same as MadJedi)
    • Source: Sharp VL-E610 camcorder > used a sony gold 8MM tape > dvd with a Standalone DVD Recorder Magnavox MWR 10D6
    • Filesize is about 3GB.
    • Same source, but transfer different to 'Version B': lower bitrate (about 4.5Mbps VBR), picture quality is only very-very slightly different, 'Version A' looked very slightly better to my eyes mainly due to the more intensive colours, but it might only be my imagination; picture of 'Version A' is slightly more grainy in places (probably due to the lower bitrate); audio is the same as 'Version B' (DD2.0 @ 256kbps).
    • 11 chapters.
    • This version is longer and more complete, approx. 50 mins with the following songs:
    • A Pocketful of Stones (incomplete), Where We Start (incomplete), Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Wots... Uh The Deal, Dominoes, Coming Back To Life, Breathe (incomplete), Echoes (incomplete), Wish You Were Here (incomplete), Comfortably Numb (only a second or so)

     

        Other versions I've seen:
    "The Last Dominoes In Chicago" - Version B
    • Filmed by MadJedi.
    • Source: Sharp 8mm Camcorder (VL - E610) > Sony 8mm MP120 Video Cassette > Magnavox DVD Recorder (HQ record setting).
    • Filesize is about 1.78GB.
    • Same source, but transfer different to 'Version A': higher video bitrate (about 8Mbps VBR); audio is the same as 'Version A' (DD2.0 @ 256kbps). In spite of the higher bitrate, the picture quality is about the same, maybe a tiny bit better contrast and more details, but it might only be my imagination.
    • No chapters.
    • Shorter than 'Version A': approx. 45 mins, the first 2 songs (A Pocketful of Stones and Where We Start) are not available.
