Additional comments:
This Video-CD has been made from a Japanese TV broadcast. The picture quality is pretty good. Special on this one is that there is only Mark Knopfler and Eric Clapton on it, but now the complete setlist. That means you can SEE Mark Knopfler playing Wild Theme. There is also more talking between the tracks, allthough they edited out Mark's jokes just before Wild Theme. Great performance of Mark, not only on his own songs, but also with Eric Clapton including a great version of Layla! Some extra information about the charity:
some of rock music's biggest stars performed at a benefit concert in London on Monday, September 15th to raise money for the volcano-ravaged Caribbean island of Montserrat. The concert has been organised by Sir George and Lady Martin together with Harvey Goldsmith to raise funds for the victims of the Soufriere volcano on the island of Montserrat which has been in a continuous state of eruption since July 1993. The most recent explosion in June 1997 killed 19 people and rendered 1500 homeless. Beatles producer George Martin, who has a luxury home and recording studio on the island, hopes to raise at least 500,000 with the charity. The total playing time is about 40 minutes, the 40 essential minutes of the Montserrat concert. Available on one CD-R.

Video-CD's can be played on DVD players or normal CD-ROM players using Windows Media Player. I can NOT play this Video-CD on my external Sony DVD player (DVP-NS705V). So I can only guarantee that it works on your PC CD-ROM drive!
