Great film, bad cover, well I made this for you:

That's actually quite nice. :)

I've no problem with the simple cover and image. I like it. Always have. I'm glad he didn't change it.

Just finished watching the DVD, brought back great memories. :)
Here are some photos I took at Bradford St George's Hall, a mere 8 or 9 days later...
Those are really great! Thanks for sharing :)

Mine came in the mail today. I haven’t put on the DVD itself but it is definitely “bare bones”. There’s not even a booklet inside.

My friend has a professionally filmed bootleg, meaning the actual cameras used as this official release, with "Swinging on A Star" at the end. Could someone tell me how...I mean has that been out there for a while? Or is this a rarity? I watched the entire thing at his house on DVD 10 years ago.

?????
When this was originally released on VHS tape there was a pre-release promotional version sent out to video and record stores. This version did not come with any cover art and had instrumental orchestral music at the beginning where Glamorous Glue is now and "Swinging on a Star" at the end. Moz wasn't able to secure use of these songs or didn't want to pay for them and so they were dropped. This is probably what you saw after it had been transferred to dvd. The original promo tapes are very rare. The only one I ever saw was at Bill's Records and Tapes in Dallas, TX. in 1995. I actually watched it there because Bill was asking $100 for it and I couldn't pay that. So he let me see it. I feel like it even had a different title written on it. His best live vid, imho

and they say he's mentall'...Morrissey claims haven't paid by EMI since 1992, where[EMI/Reprise/Parlophone] He released His 5 first solo studioalbums , as He took over The Smiths deal.

Not surprised at all by the minimal (read - non-existent) extras & packaging. I still have the Vhs but I'll be looking to download this in the near future and put it on DVD. The opening sequence (Jerusalem) is essential and almost brings tears to my eyes....and I'm not English! Can be seen here:

Should've used this one which was taken around that time period.

The film crew recorded a young male holding a copy of "The World of Morrissey" walking to the front of the queue outside the Winter Ballroom in Blackpool, I presume as a possible opening sequence. I agree the "Jerusalem" version on the original release is nice.
