Disclaimer: This collection differs from The Vault series in that it was not feasible to license the musical performances, therefore we had to make the tough choice to carefully edit them out. We feel the historical value and quality of these shows compensates for the missing musical performances and we’ve done our best to edit in a way that minimizes any air time loss and keeps the integral flow of the original show. In other words, what you see is what you get. And what you get is what can be released, and that ain’t bad. We hope you will enjoy!
