    I did a careful side-by-side comparison between the original Hakone video and this new transfer and can confirm that this new release is exactly the same edit as the original film with one difference. At the 5-minute mark there is approximately 24 seconds of footage missing from all previous versions. There’s a really bad glitch at the 5-minute mark and I’m assuming that the proceeding 24 seconds of footage was damaged and an edit was made to remove it when it went into circulation.

    I’m pretty certain that the original audio was replaced but the recording has yet to be identified.

    Here’s the original film.

    Yesterday there was an event in Hakone for the release of the AHM 50th anniversary edition, which I was able to attend, and I asked general manager of Sony Music Japan at the event how the release process came about.
    He told me that the original plan was to use the audio from the film optical soundtrack, but Pink Floyd refused to allow it (because the sound quality was too poor).
    Sony sent various sound sources to Pink Floyd, but these were also rejected, and Sony was even told to replace the sound with a live recording from another country, as it was not of Pink Floyd quality.
    But Sony's general manager insisted: "We want to make something that will resonate with the Japanese people, so we have to include the Hakone recordings." he persisted.
    PF manager said that he would leave the final decision to David Gilmour, and he sent me a sound source that he said I could use. That was stereo audience recording that was used this time.

    Very interesting story!

    So this should be the best source available ?!

    All the best

    Thanks for the info. So the audio was recorded at Hakone but was the date identified?

    Indeed. I think this was always known considering the change in the band's clothes during the performances seen in this footage.

    The audio should be August 7th recorder 3.

    Oh really? I must’ve missed that before.
    During the live segments David was the only that was obvious to me now.
    Guess I’ve never thought about it before.

    Considering how bad the quality has been in the past it's no surprise that some might easily miss details like this.

    And FYI, Andy Jackson doesn't know anything about the audio that Gilmour reportedly submitted for the film. Must have been something he did on his own.

    I love this release. The packaging is just amazing and I loved the Blu-ray.

    The shots look stunning, with only Richard being too far back so his shots look blurred.

    It's a lovely time capsule of Floyd's visit to Japan, from flying in, to press conferences, to local transit, to playing, to flying back.
