Hey Nic and all,

Hmm, I'd never seen it.  Mark F told me he thought the Cabs had shot another 
video at the same location but wasn't sure which one it could be.

I wish they'd shown as much of RHK in the '86 show as in the '83 one...I 
like to see what he's up to, or when he changes from the keyboard to the 
guitar and back again.

>Sheer genius and Cherry Red are to be commended for releasing this.

I am hoping that someone, anyone follows their lead and releases more dvds 
of the Cabs.  I don't need it to be well-lit and pristine, I just want to be 
able to see and hear how fantastic they obviously were live.  Also, more 
video showing Chris!  Most of the video releases have been post-Chris, so 
here's hoping.

keep on all,
