Great news for any Priest fan, although I am a little dissapoined that the completely ignored the two videos with Ripper Owens.

I think it would have been cool to include the Ripper Videos plus the Rob Halford videos from his various projects.

The Release was delayed (Dec 2) I'm still waiting for my DDD preorder (only $8.95), though it has been shipped.

If you are a Judas Priest fan i highly recommend picking this up i received it last week from amazon and it kicks some major a$$, i love having the classic 80's priest videos, that alone was good enough for myself to pick it up, the live concert from the Turbo tour "Priest Live" is just awesome, and the BBC TV clips are definately an added bonus, only thing missing that i wish it had was some recent commentary by Rob kk & Glenn kinda like the new Motley Crue dvd has with Nikki & Tommy, but oh well still very highly recommended...

Anyone know what happened to the "Freewheel Burning" clip from the Whistle Test? Was it just left off, or is it an easter egg?

I just checked the official Priest site and it does not list Freewheel Burning anymore.

I do think this is a great DVD, but it's not without faults that's for sure. Mine has a slight pause which I'm asuming is a layer change during the "Sentinal". Putting a layer change in the middle (in this case twords the front) of a song is unacceptable. I also do not like like the way the live show is presented. It has been stepped on in the studio way to much, and the cut & paste shots added into the film are not needed. I just feel it is to slick of a production, and does not give the true effect of what attending a real Judas Priest show was like. It needed to be more raw like the badly needed to be released show from the "Screaming For Vengence" tour.

It is a great DVD though, for the price. A must have for any Priest fan, and a great addition to my collection.

Is anyone else have a problem with the sound of the live show? Mine seems to keep "dropping out" - going to mono or something. Very distracting.
