Decent interviews, but the rest is available elsewhere

"Well, I purchased this DVD in hopes that the Floyd performances would include previously unknown footage.
Sadly, that turned out to not be the case.
There are some lengthy interviews with Roger Waters and Nick Mason, as well as Joe Boyd and a couple of other guys, and those were interesting, and they also went on at some length about Syd Barrett.
The Floyd performances, however, are easily available through unofficial channels in more complete form, and without the top and bottom of the picture chopped off to make fake 16:9 aspect ratio.
This footage, however, has been cleaned up, so it is likely to be the highest quality version of it that you can get, but (for some unknown reason) the producers chose to edit out all of the Hans Keller (the jerk who asks "Why has it got to be so loud?") interview with Syd, Roger, Nick, and Rick.
This could have gotten extra points from me, even though it contains footage found elsewhere, if they had not chopped off the aspect ratio, and if they had made the footage complete.
Sorry, guys, but I rate this nothing more than a C-.
Amazon, for their part, were exemplary, as always.
I had to get a reshipment because the USPS lost the first shipment.
Amazon rapidly sent out another, and I had it in my hands within four days of reporting the missing first shipment."
Great historical info and rare Pink Floyd recollections

"As a fierce, die-hard Pink Floyd fan, it was awesome to see NEW interview clips with Roger Waters and Nick Mason in this documentary. It was extra special to also see their longer COMPLETE interviews as BONUS material on this DVD! Unfortunately, in the hippie days, the film crew at the Technicolor Dream concert left before Pink Floyd played, but this documentary covers the whole 24-hour party with interesting stories, gossip, and fond memories."
