Better than the original!
The extra footage adds much to the story & answers a number of questions.
Camron Crowe's mother is a hoot in the commentary.
The Stillwater cd alone was worth the price.
If you liked the film as released, you'll love "the Bootleg Cut"!

Almost Famous: Bootleg Cut
This copy had recently gone OOP so I bought it in near mint condition. The OOP status stems from the fact that in addition to the extended cut of the film (Crowe's cut) there is a bonus CD of songs from the fictional group in teh film, Stillwater. Apparently due to licensing issues, that CD has been ordered off the market so that's why the set is very hard to find. The CD itself is alright, if you like the live performances from the film, you'll like the CD. There's only about 5 tracks on there, so not a whole lot.
The real treat is the extended cut of the film which has about 45 minutes of cut footage in it that Crowe put back in. If you're a fan of the film, it's great to have and there are some real gems in the new footage.

The extra footage makes love this film even more!
Many "Special Editions" of films are just repackages with deleted scenes that never belonged there in the first place. Almost Famous,The Bootleg Edition is different. The nearly 30 minutes of extra footage furthers the story
of William Miller and Penny Lane. There are other great deleted scenes including a birthday party for Penny Lane and a funny interview scene involving a stoned out
Kyle Gass (Tenacious D). The added footage fleshes out the whole film nicely and should have been in the theatrical release. Other gooies include a Nancy Wilson
song video including video home movies from the film and an interview with the real life Lester Bangs editor of Cream. Plus Cameron Crowe's favorite albums of 1973. If you love the film, you need this DVD.

Almost Famous Directors Cut: must own for fans of film
For an Almost Famous fan, this DVD is essential for your collection. It has the extended version, the original version, a Stillwater CD, and many special features that are not on the original DVD version of the film. Also, it is fun to look for the Easter eggs that Cameron Crowe placed on the DVDs. Anyone who likes Almost Famous will enjoy this DVD set a lot and will not be disappointed. It is also out of print, so the supply is limited.

Insightful look into the lives of rock stars!
Super sharp extra deluxe edition of a really great movie. Just caught it recently and wondered why I haven't seen it up till now. There are some great scenes with the rock icons of our time relating to a 16 year old and constantly asking the kid for life advice. The band members are chilren being led around by a really smart insightful kid. Not a family movie yet very touching. Also, if you have to own this movie make sure you get this loaded version and not the lame 1 disc set. This is a 2 DVD set with a CD also, what a bargain. Cameron Crowe rocks!
