That commentary track is on the Criterion release of Easy Rider on the America Lost and Found: The BBS Story Blu-ray collection...

The Big Country had one, I haven't heard it, but I think it was archive audio.

Re: LD commentary tracks not ported over to DVD?

The Ultimate Oz Laserdisc set had a commentary by John Fricke that is different than the one on the DVD.

Are you sure about that? I'll have to do a side-by-side comparison, but I think that it's the same one as the DVD...

Re: LD commentary tracks not ported over to DVD?

Same guy and a lot of the same stories but it's a different recorded commentary. The laserdisc was just him while the DVD has interviews interspersed throughout, so he skips some anecdotes and shortens others.

"Prince of Tides - 1st pressing and 2nd pressing"

I didn't know there were 2 versions. Does anybody know what the differences are, if any?

Differences in cover artwork:

First pressing (it is estimated that less than 100 exist, of which one is in my possession):



Second pressing (quite common):



The audio commentaries are almost the same, but there are some minor variances in them. I haven't done an A/B comparison, though.
