Exactly. I thought it was an odd choice of titles. If they didn't want to include anything from GH3, that's one ting, but to bring over three tracks and leave off his two biggest hits of the past 15 years (We Didn't Start the Fire & River of Dreams), well, that's just stupid.
Dispite being a HUGE Joel fan, I haven't seen half of these videos in this collection. He didn't do concept videos before The Nylon Curtain, so I expect a lot of these to be grainy old performance videos (unless they made more of those "remade" videos like Piano Man -- yuck). I'll probably still pick it up though, if it's a nice 5.1 remastering job.
It must be a little weird for Joel to release a DVD with 6 (by my count) videos starring his ex-wife. If he had the power that Spielberg has on ET, he might have CGI'd her out.

What I want is The Millenium Concert on DVD. He's such a great performer and thanks to the amaturish camera work on the Live at Yankee Stadiium DVD, his only available concert footage is almost unwatchable.
