This upgrade restores the original PAL format that was inadvertently changed to NTSC on, corrects the audio static problem with the original audio upgrade source, and corrects the most egregious coloration problems associated with D218.
Sound upgraded w/excellent audio, probably the "Jack the Cowboy Went Up North" version, but with different Disk 1/Disk 2 split.

Video overexposed for reds and purples on many songs; longer stretches were edited to reduce vivid color and brightness.
Cameraman probably used coloration effects and black and white on "Love Minus Zero" and "Tangled Up In Blue" as noted/editor could not fix these.
