greetings all

in 'anthem to beauty' there are some segments from a black and white experimental film of a gd song, more like a music video i would say (i think it is 'alligator' but i might be wrong). is this whole video availible commercially somewhere? i thought it might be added in as an extra on the new gd dvd that just came out, but i am not sure.

anyone know?

hiya bubba

yeah its pretty cool...lots of good interviews, some pretty cool acid test footage, some concert stuff. they go through the culture of the 60's, and the making of anthem to beauty and american beauty.

if you're a hardcore fan, there might not be any new stuff for you, but if you're intermediate like me its definetely worth the money.
