AFAIK, My set was made in Italy and is NOT DVD Audio, only DVD-V with DTS 96/24 as best option...hope this helps...Guess I'll post my question here. I posted on Hoffman board and it seems like someone deleted it. Maybe because it was an old thread? Anyway . . .
I know this is an old thread here too and I apologize but I am just getting around to purchasing this now. Two questions;
Would someone please clarify if the the DVD's in the the European Virgin-EMI edition of Genesis Live 1973-2007 Box are actually *DVD-Audio* 5.1 and hi rez stereo mixes or is it identical to the US Rhino version CD/Dolby DVD's? And does the Rhino version contain a separate 2.0 stereo mix on the three Dolby DVD's?
On the MINUS side:
The whole "BUY THE MISSING DISC" is a really cheap and low blow-the least they could have done is include a coupon for a hefty discount if you wanted it.
Also, the inclusion of a STEREO ONLY "Three sides live" with NO EXPLANATION of WHY it wasn't in surround is a kick in the balls ..WHILE YOU'RE ALREADY WRITHING DOWN ON THE GROUND FROM THE PREVIOUS SUCKER PUNCH....
IN SPITE of that I'm giving it a VERY benevolent "6"...but I'm STILL PISSED OFF AT THEM!!!!!
Wonder why they released all the albums as standalones, but not the concerts? I'll probably take a pass, unless the box gets real cheap. I've always got my PG concerts. Though once I got my HDTV, I noticed that Secret World Live must be non-anamorphic, as it looks pretty bad. Still sounds great though.
Side four of the regular edition is studio recordings. Then there was a limited supply of that album called "Four Sides Live", with the fourth side being live recordings. It has the same album jacket as "Three Sides", but an orange sticker shaped like an exclamation mark, covering the "Three" in the title with "Four".When Three Sides came out on vinyl, some yocko in at Flip Side picks up the import version and proceeds to tell me "this one has an extra side. It's got four!" @: Yes, and I'll bet it goes to 11, as well!

I was fortunate enough to get one of these at a flea market some years ago. Paid 5 Euro for it.
The CD has it complete, studio and live tracks.
In the Live box set , side four IS the "Fourth side live"(That goes to 'leven...)...
The extra studio tracks that were originally included in the US version ("Paperlate", etc.) are included in the "Extra tracks" DVD-V DTS 96/24 of the 1976-1982 box set...
Sorry, my "ingrich" gets a "leetle" rusty sometimes...Thanks, Kap'n. I have all 5 boxes and was aware of that. I think that everyone misunderstood what I was saying. It was the garden variety US version this guy was referring to. He thought it had extra, 'cause it was 4 LP sides. Anecdotes are never funny when one is forced to do some 'splainin'.
