Another fucking unofficial version. MOD = DVD-R Note: This product is manufactured on demand when ordered from Amazon.com.

So... another fucking bootleg. DON'T BUY IT!!

Just because it's manufactured on demand doesn't mean it's a bootleg. I have purchased other movies in this way from both Warner Brothers and MGM and they look and sound just fine.

Major studios do this for movies for which there is not enough demand to press a full run of silver discs. Check the movies listed further down the page. Not silver pressed discs but not bootlegs either.

Well I do know what I'm talking about with regards to studios releasing MOD discs, it's been going on for years.

The disc has the artwork that all MGM MOD discs have and looks to be legit. If you have some other reason to believe it's not legit other than the fact you are unaware of how MOD discs are distributed then let me know.

Here's a disc from the Warner Brothers MOD system:

Here's one from Universal:

Jay has no idea about MOD. I just purchased this, and it even has copyright 1993 Bizarre Straight Records.

So, is it superior to the fairly recent "Tony Palmer" DVD version?

I don't know about that KUIII. The item I purchased was Lowell George and The Factory - Lightning Rod Man. It was a Made On Demand item just like Cigars was referring to. I can't speak for this version of 200 Motels.
