Live At The Hollywood Bowl DVD

This appears in the current issue of 'Hot Press' in the DVD review section,p.92 : "Morrissey : Live at the Holywood Bowl" (Warner Vision) ~ Despite being disowned by Stephen (sic) Patrick - "The sleeve art is appalling. It's the work of cash hounds, and I urge people NOT to buy it" - this is a cracking "Greatest Hits" package, which in between the opening 'The Queen Is Dead' and closing 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' manages to squeeze in five other Smiths classics. A seriously rocking 'Irish Blood, English Heart' and equally muscular 'You Have Killed Me' prove that he doesn't need Johnny Marr to keep his songwriting mojo properly maintained.

'HP' is a fortnightly publication so the reviews are usually pretty topical, unlike the montly mags. Has this reviewer actually seen the disc ? Who can really tell ? If he has, then Warner must have sent out promo copies. Eire-only release ? Perhaps that's the most we can hope for.
Wikipedia says it's going to be released on March 1, "according to HMV"...
