Money For Nothing (Live 1997)

Album related: Brothers In Arms

Year: 1997

Originally released on: Music For Montserrat VHS + Limited Edition CD (Japan, Eagle Vision Video Arts Music VAVG-9024)

Category: Live

Track Length: 5:48

Notes: The VHS Videotape was the first format to be released. Laserdisc with lossless Digital Audio followed in Japan (1997, Eagle Rock Entertainment VALG 1040) and then came the DVD. The first version being only in Dolby Digital and the second with a stunning DTS 5.1 track. In Japan there is a ultra rare first press VHS Tape (VAVG-9024) which includes a Bonus three track CD Single with Money For Nothing instead of Brothers In Arms (which was featured on the European early VHS+CD release). So it´s the only place to find this track on CD. For your information, the “second” Japan DVD, manufactured by Nippon Columbia (COBB-90001) has two surround soundtracks: Dolby AC-3 5.1 448 Kbps and DTS 5.1 1.551 Kbps (DTS is simply stunning)
