Track 12 is missing from Official CD, so PCM and DD5.1 (front) are mix of VHS audio and CSB>D3 for that track. Video picture was brightened a bit. This is the redone version.

Taken from Five Horizons:

This video is pro-shot (a multi-camera feed was broadcast out on the Times Square big screen) and there are some great closeups. Unfortunately, the sound quality is inconsistent and the lighting is rather dark. This is a extremely spirited Pearl Jam performance featuring a rather unusual setlist. Ed starts out with a quick "Happy New Year!" and is sporting a stocking cap pulled down, nearly over his eyes. A totally different, fast version of Wash leads off the setlist, featuring very nice guitar work by Mike. Eddie asks where the camera is and says to say "hi" to everyone in Times Square. Then he begins his rants about Marky Mark and gives him the finger and grabs his crotch for emphasis. During Sonic Reducer, Eddie's cap comes off and his hair spills out, but he puts it back on and even duct tapes it on! The cap comes off at the end of Alive, and he wraps a t-shirt around his head. Near the start of Porch, Jeff is playing while laying on his back. Eddie sings the end of Leash while crowd surfing with everyone pawing at him.
