The beauty of this dvd is not because it has all the videos from SP's career. It's not because the sound is great and the picture is excellent. Those things all add up to a great dvd, but the reason this dvd gets 5 stars is this: each and every song has 4 viewing options. First, you can select either the official video or an alternate 'outtakes' version; some videos have a making-of documentary in place of outtakes. Next, you can select either the music track or a commentary/documentary track for both the official video or the documentary/outtakes video. Also, some tracks have even more bonuses: '1979' has an extra 'Lost Tapes' track that tells the story of how the original video was lost. Moreover, each commentary/documentary track has comments from each band member (though mostly Billy) as well as the video directors.
