This video & laser disc still available in Japan.
(1st press, in deluxe black-case and insert booklet, but this version already soldout. But, regular type is still pressing and available.)
This lasetdisc's master tape is recorded by NTV (one of
biggest TV broadcasting company in Japan) on color VIDEO TAPE.
(NOTICE: not 16mm film!)
But, Paul's microphone was bad condition (swing left and right), so Brian Epstain wanted re-record next day(July 1st afternoon show). July 1st afternoon show, fab four weared light striped suit. And on July 1st evening, this light suit version on-aired in Japan.
In rumour, Brian Epstain brought this light-suit version's master tape to England, so there's only dark-suit version left in Japan.
So, this laserdisc contained dark-suit version. But, this laserdisc mastering directly from color video tape, not from 16mm film dupe.
We can find light-suit version only on BOOTLEG video in Japan. There is two-type boot video, first is dupe from 16mm film version (most video omitted 1 song, so containd 10 songs), and second is dupe from color video tape (complete 11 songs).
