This DVD is an official pressing from Australia's largest independent recordcompany, Shock. However they didn't receive the final permission for release from the copyright holders, and they were forced to remove this title from distribution.
The official response from Francis Dreyfus music:
"I confirm that only Disques Dreyfus /Jean Michel Jarre, co-producers of the concert, have the rights to DVD exploitation.
After investigation, it appears that some copies of the DVD were sold in Australia during a very limited period despite a ban but this violation has been denounced and the distribution stopped."
an unknown number of copies had been sold by local and online retailers.
The video was not a transfer from the original mastertape, but from an Australian TV broadcast, and features one additional minute of footage on Magnetic Fields 1, not present in the 1991 VHS release from Polygram.
