"Director's cut" will include restored footage

Record Collector magazine has confirmed rumors that the 1972 film "Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii" will be issued on DVD.

In its February issue, the English magazine reports the Adrian Maben film will be released by Universal in the spring. The reissue will include "newly restored in-concert footage, as well as an unedited studio run-through of 'Dark Side of the Moon' and pre-performance scenes," according to the publication.

The film, without the additional footage, is already available in the VHS format.

The original film, shot in an ancient amphitheater in Pompeii on Oct. 4-7, 1971, includes "Echoes, Part 1," "Careful with That Axe Eugene," "A Saucerful of Secrets," "One of These Days," "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun," "Mademoiselle Nobs," and "Echoes, Part 2."

Addendum: Universal Music has confirmed the U.S. release date for the DVD is Oct. 21. We'll have copies to give away on "Floydian Slip" in November, courtesy of Hip-O Records.
