That's right. And although it's not exactly related to this post, one should also be wary of official VHS > bootleg VHS copies that look similar to the original. There used to be lots of these going around, too.

Years ago I bought the nice original VHS and in 2003 we have transferred it to DVD.So please, don´t sell it. It was meant for trading and you find it on all trader´s lists plus - correct me if I am wrong - also on Dime.Cheers,S.

QuoteLive in Japan documents the October 17th, 1984, performance in Tokyo and received a release the following year in Japan on VHS and Betamax.The Japanese concert film was not widely available in the US and has never been released on DVD. A used copy chas been known to cost over $499 via Discogs. For those not flush with cash, the film had been frustratingly removed from YouTube several times. Now, however, it has been uploaded by none other than drummer Andy Anderson, who was a member of The Cure during the filming of this concert.
