I very much want to like the footage from the 1974 performance, but the video effects and the fast cut editing make it very very difficult.

The band is top notch, and some of the comedy bits are quite enjoyable. Yet, I don't put this on much.

Frank loved the fast edit for sure.

At least we have the uncluttered music to listen to. I agree with ya too. Annoying editing at times.

I too would love to see the entire concert, without the cuts/effects.

In the case of videotape, it's more like rapid two finger button pushing. So literally, Frank's fingers are all over it. ha ha....lame joke. I would imagine film sourced videos like G-Spot Tornado were done this way as well, the rapid fire flashing parts created after the original films had been transferred to video.
