VH1 Presents: Live & More Encore!, a documentation of a February 1999 performance at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom, was still in print in 2012, when this very similar -- if relatively unattractive -- package was released by a label called Audio Visual Fidelity. While the VH1 performance was available separately on CD and DVD, Encore combines the formats. The songs that don't appear on Epic's original CD version -- "Don't Wanna Work (That Hard)," "If There Is Music There," "Nobody," and "Riding Through the Storm" -- appear on the CD here, and the DVD program mirrors that of the original. ~ Andy Kellman
