Royal Albert Hall concert question
The PBS VHS release is only 60 min long and is edited. Videos of individual songs from this concert on YOUTUBE are longer and the intros are ones that I have never heard before. Was this concert available on a foreign T.V. broadcast? Also I wonder where the REST of the concert is. Nobody puts a show on and only plays 60 min. Is there a longer version somewhere else and is Yanni the only one with access.
I wish they would release the entire full length concert.
Anyone have any answers for me?

Thanks in advance

The Royal Albert Hall concert was never intended for public release. It was only supposed to be a promotional release to media. However several of those promotional releases ended up being sold on eBay and fans began to ask for it. In response, Yanni management released a 7 song (I think) VHS of the concert and eventually the longer PBS release. There is a four song DVD that came with some copies of Ethnicity when it was released. There are no other versions of that particular concert.
