When I went to it, it said "Video Not Available. "

Would it be a sign of announcing the Toronto 88 CBC radio bootleg as an official release? :lol:

That is weird, Roman!

From my end, the first link is live and the second one is unavailable.
I found a replacement for the latter on YouTube still in LC's channel -

Wellin, that made me laugh!
As you know, this concert has been quite a few times an unofficial bootleg -

Bev, I was updating my site about this bootleg and then I found maybe, so far, the best bootleg version is this one because 2 interviews are added.

These 2 interviews were recorded backstage before the concert

Wellin, I’ve never seen that particular version of this seemingly never ending bootleg - whatever name they give it :)
I was previously aware of the two interviews as separate things.
Maybe you could also add this image and info of the combined version you found to Jarkko’s list in the link you’ve posted above just to keep all the bootlegs together.

And I've noticed that pesky cool smilie masquerading again as the number 8 in your last post on that linked page :)

YouTube auto-generates videos for artists who distribute their music through companies that have deals with YouTube.

This video (currently available in 85 countries and territories, including Europe and Latin America, blocked in 92 — according to WatanNetwork) has appeared among subscriptions, not recommended videos (as a real upload to LC's channel, although it's not).
