This is an excellent show and recording and a great video upgrade of this performance too. The video is definitely an upgrade to the exact same source I have that has LPCM audio and is also missing "Who's To Blame". LPCM audio is preferred of course, at least in most cases, but the video in this copy being shared is much better. I'm not sure if it is the type of professional VHS tape used to copy it to or if it is the third generation lineage (or both) that makes the video sharper and with less color fading. But whatever the reason is, it does look better and sounds excellent too.

The song "Who's To Blame" is missing from the video as it is from other videos I've seen of this show. The sharing party told a story in their Dime share on how he got this recording from the the taper selling it. It sounds like the guy who had the original video and sold it probably left the first song off as well as chopped out part of the "Stairway to Heaven" solo if you ask me. Maybe it had to do with the time allotted on VHS tapes, usually 2 hours in 1988, or maybe he did it for future releases of a "complete show" to make more money. This is just speculation on my part. But from what the sharing party said in their post, the taper was largely into bootlegging everything from movies (copyrighted material) to concerts and then selling them and he was arrested in a large operation soon afterward. So, we may never know the full story on the tape here. But if anyone out there has a copy with "Who's To Blame" and especially a complete "Stairway To Heaven", please speak up.
In the bonus November 4th, 1988 Syracuse, NY video added to the end of this DVD, it cuts out the soon after it gets started. I am not sure if this was a video from the same taper as the Detroit show but it sounds and looks like it easily might be. That "Stairway to Heaven" cuts out too. Maybe this was was done on this DVD because it was the end of the DVD's storage capcity? Or, maybe it was taped by the same taper and he was cutting the prized song as I mentioned in the above paragraph for later releasing reasons? This is a DVD I do not have and have not ever seen! If anyone has the 1988-11-04 Syracuse, NY video, please, please, please share it or let me know!
The artwork included with this upload is the same (wrong) artwork included with ever copy of this show I've ever seen. It has "Who's To Blame" on the setlist too. It kind of makes me wonder if "Who's To Blame" was even recorded on 1988-10-22 in Detroit and if someone just accidentally added it to artwork since I've never seen it on a video of the show before? But it reportedly is on some videos and is the first song played.
I hope you enjoy the concert...
