The 2009 doesn't look bad at all, but the color and especially the grain on the new one is quite impressive.

ok, so the "outtakes" are not "expanded" ? :oops: (for instance : Laura Nyo (still only 2 songs (Poverty Train and a little bit of the end of Wedding Bell Blues)
they were not in 1080p24 contrary to the main movie "Monterey", "just" "i" but still the picture was really good.
I don't know if only the main movie has the X4 treatment... (and they could re-author and re-encoded the "outtakes" blu-ray to 1080p24 (using their previous transfer) without being a X4 transfer...)
Moby Grape, Steve Miller (Blues) Band, and Grateful Dead have been added. Otherwise everything else is the same, still lossy audio, still looks like SD upscale.

They don't look any better than what was on the old Blu-ray and look like standard-def upscales sadly. I'm not at all sure why they get their own disc. They're still in Dolby Digital as well. The only advantage here are the new outtakes.

Is the UK version region free? That's what it says on Amazon UK site. I've preordered it (when the price dropped to 14.99 pounds) but I don't have a region free player.

I believe the US releases are Region A locked and the UK releases Region B locked.
