It is now time for it to be available to the long term fans who have never seen it, I don't see a problem?

Would still love to see this but I am not expecting anything and am done actively seeking out a viewing of it from people because it's kinda unfair on them. I did read the scene by scene description in Black Book and felt quite content at that. I think there are much better documentaries available to us already anyway, for example, my personal favorite is probably the tour documentary that follows the boys through a small run of shows they did in Greenland and Iceland S/T era. Only a year or so after B-roads was filmed..

This one here... Not the best quality but a great insight none the less.

Starts with Damon strumming a working version of Mellow Song at soundcheck. Damon had just become the laid back, measured character we know him as today it would seem. In contrast to the mockney persona he reportedly portrays in B-Roads.

I know a lot of people say B-Roads looks crappy, but that's an aesthetic and look I love. Well, when it's genuine. I don't even know if it's good proper editing with overlays and titles, but I think the fact its old, lost, and revered goes well with the fact its outdated, incomplete, and grungey.
