See notes below. Notes: I got this show without an info file, so using gspot I gathered the DVD data. This is a fantastic show; supreme quality improvement over the single DVD of this same show. This one has the award ceremony in the dressing room before the show begins. Dream Theater's 1994 album Awake was certified platinum status. James Labrie came down with food poisoning before this show was taped. His voice was damaged from that experience and during this show he had trouble with some songs, most notable Another Day for its high register. He definitely gave 100% that he had available. Everyone else was spot on that night. John Myungs birthday was honored that night and he was nervous about getting cake in the face, but he didn't. On the single DVD the bass guitar was very loud and overdriven, but on this collection it was much better, I thought it was the proper amount of volume in the mix. Derek did well that evening, he had only been in the band for 4 months at that point. I thought his attempt to model the sax solo at the end of Another Day was lacking enthusiasm and gave me the feeling he wasn't trying to model that solo at all. Between Voices and The Silent Man there was a 15 second 'moment of silence' to honor the loss of life during the earthquake that struck that area. I remember reading that Dream Theater was in the earthquake, but not harmed by it. The Metropolis 2 bonus material does not have a date with it, and my best guess is that its from San Francisco California as during one song James screams "SAN FRAN!" right before a breakdown. However, at the start of each song is the Metropolis 2 CD cover with the song title, the label name "east west japan" and an icon that says "ROCK CITY" in the upper right corner. All that material is single camera with zoom-ins except Fatal Tragedy, it has multiple camera shots with different lighting which makes me think its a matrix of video of that song only. I think this show would be an official release if James had not been ill with the voice that night. Its every bit as good as the 1993 Live in Tokyo official release in my opinion, excluding JLB's voice. NEVER, EVER BUY THIS OR SELL FOR PROFIT. IF YOU DO, YOU WILL BE DEALT WITH SWIFTLY. TRADE FREELY TO ALL CORNERS. DREAM THEATER IS A PRO-BOOTLEGGER ARTIST, THEY ONLY ASK YOU TO BUY THEIR OFFICIAL PRODUCTS IN ADDITION TO OBTAINING FAN-CREATED RELEASES SUCH AS THIS. ; wholefile md5 checksum file generated by Trader's Little Helper ; generated on April 8, 2008, at 10:09 am 86ad03bdbedf159e60cf22eca89257a5 *dt_1995_01_24_2DVD_na.jpg fa94d782c1f76fc46de7e152bb8b65df *dt_1995_01_24_2DVD_na_case.jpg c095af3eae276bb3368d948170ab06cc *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.BUP c095af3eae276bb3368d948170ab06cc *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO 3593653c9530de652ca500a602ef9b8c *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.BUP 3593653c9530de652ca500a602ef9b8c *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.IFO 950553ba4095cc4eff26f94971e9a2c2 *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.VOB 20757a44a0a81cb0be2d4b7603989708 *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.VOB e7446b27d1bfb782c10da4e3d29d7a00 *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_2.VOB a1b1ba98f41cc8fef6ced2b6d660bf02 *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_3.VOB 225457050ccb825131333642519c7f32 *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_4.VOB 830625240410e4ad2b6281e1047142ba *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_5.VOB de4292b200f5951986db421c73546c3a *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_02_0.BUP de4292b200f5951986db421c73546c3a *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_02_0.IFO d5f48d4528c9f03e7c1012ec35b81b4c *DVD1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_02_1.VOB 75b342e9a0f2abbb1c8323121fd8abdf *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.BUP 75b342e9a0f2abbb1c8323121fd8abdf *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO 5e71cf229acdfd6aaa2e274cd23c962d *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.BUP 5e71cf229acdfd6aaa2e274cd23c962d *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.IFO c54714010ce14e3b9bfb462b9a3d0db9 *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.VOB 2a259ddf66211e3d97c094d9db38162c *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.VOB 6d1ffd93ccfb678d56bcfd5fa4db9e86 *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_2.VOB 497583ff53e336ec58fa8b3b85f724fc *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_3.VOB 12e44f77742b9400c20122cbb99fdb1d *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_4.VOB 0172597063ac3c84f4830c26ae383b3d *DVD2\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_5.VOB
