NOTES: This is the complete, uncensored version of the famous Ritz '88 concert. The picture quality is not nearly as good as the edited version, but this version contains almost 10 minutes of exclusive, additional footage, including the song "Mama Kin", and a few Axl rants (plus the complete Slash rant introducing "Nightrain"!).
This one was a bitch to sync. The "Silver Bullet" CD bootleg audio track was edited all over the place (almost 7 minutes of audio missing!) so I tried to do my best to keep it as in sync as possible, and it was a very lengthy process, but there are a few instances where there's a (very) slight delay. I was concerned about that so I added the original VHS sound as a "backup" audio track. I cleaned it up and it actually doesn't sound bad at all. You can even hear guitars a lot more better than on the CD track.
The CD track was also a lot faster than the VHS sound so I had to reduce its speed (by about 2%), and I patched the missing parts using the VHS sound. Either way, you can switch between tracks using the AUDIO button of your DVD player remote.
I hope you enjoy this excellent GN'R concert in its complete version. It was authored by me (Will) with files provided by Limulus.
