On sale in Dutch music stores: Sign of the times DVD

I just had it in my hands, but could not buy it because I already have pre-ordered it on the Free record shop site. Is there anyone in Holland who can tell me if the "DTS"sound is as they promised, Improved. I now wish I could cancel my order on the FRS site.

I ordered it through BOL and it arrived today.

Watched it for just a bit. There is a DTS soundtrack, but it is to long ago that I have seen the video to make any comparisons. It sounded not too bad. I always thought that the sound of the video was awfull BTW.

For those of you that are interested; the picture is 4:3, so no widescreen or anything like that.

The thing that struck me the most is how much of the footage was added later (also lots of overdubs). If this was released today he would probably get a lot of comments about this. Still it is a great document of a great era.

A question for the experts: Is the guitar part on the sign 'O' the times one huge overdub? If not, why is he playing his guitar during some parts when I don't hear a thing? Could also be that I was paying more attention to my 8 month old daughter... (somehow she did not come with a pause-button or a rewind wink )
