There are various audio & video sources of this concert, partially broadcast
by HBO (together with a Sigur Ros Set, not included on this dvd).
The video quality of Serge's compilation dvd was the best I had seen yet, but
the audio was very disappointing. The nearly excellent shn set that I first
wanted to use for the audio (also provided by Serge from a German source, and
much better than some flac versions that are circulating as well), unfortunately
turned out to have fade-ins & outs on several tracks (it also
had some noise/hiss throughout, but that could have been fixed). Because of
those fades I had to decide to use the non-faded and clearer audio from the
"brunolly" mpegs instead (even though the specs of those didn't look that
fantastic to me).
The Anchor Song that's featured at the end of the dvd, didn't come with the
compilation dvd. In fact, it's missing from most circulating audio & video
recordings. I used an mpeg from an unknown source, that I downloaded through
the bjorkhub. The quality wasn't good enough to stretch it to full screen, so
I added it in it's original size to the credits. - goudwater
