At www.farewelltotheworld.com there is now a teaser clip of "Mean To Me" from the new DVD. Having listened to the "Don't Scream It's Over" bootleg of this show dozens of times, the performance was pretty familiar to me as I watched the clip. I was simply enjoying the new clean mix as I watched, until something really caught my ear....
On the bootleg, during the second chorus of MTM Neil goofs up the lyric and sings: "No I could not escape/*to walk out the door*/mysterious sympathy".
HowEVER, on the teaser clip, this seems to have been edited somehow, so that he sings the correct lyric: "No I could not escape/*a plea from the heart*/mysterious sympathy".
I double and triple checked it, and it's definitely been corrected. Conveniently, the camera is at a wide angle to the side of the stage at this moment, so you can't see what Neil is physically singing.
Does anyone own the VHS copy to quadruple check this? Either something is wrong with my audio recording of the show, or the DVD has been edited. Or, possibly, it was edited from the start and is corrected on the VHS edition as well.
If that's the case, it's pretty disappointing...I would have hoped they'd leave the reality of the show intact, including the little goofs here and there.
