After reading an earlier thread on here that revealed that Bestbuy was offering an Exclusive version of the recent Crossroads 2007 DVD, which included 2 additional songs- Why does love got to be so sad & Things get better- I ordered it online.

It has arrived, but there is no indication on the outside of the DVD box that it is the special edition with the extra tracks. I've found out that the two extra songs are in a seperate sleave and that this was available "while supplies lasted".

Question: Before I take the wrapper off, can anyone who bought the exclusive bestbuy version tell me if the outside of the DVD box references the two additional songs? If it does and I received a normal, I want to go to the local store and swap it out if the store still has the special one.

Thanks in advance.

The outside box does not mention the bonus tracks, but the sleeve of the bonus tracks does...good luck.

The outside box on my copy mentions the bonus tracks.

Word is from past threads that you will ONLY get the bonus cuts if you buy it at a Best Buy BRICK AND MORTAR outlet, NOT on-line. I would exchange yours, and walk into a Best Buy and buy it. Why would they do this, you ask? I say an obvious gimmick to get you into a store where you may buy more stuff. And once you know where the store is, you'll probably be back.

I think it was only when it first came out. My brother bought it for me for Christmas at Best Buy, and it didn't have the bonus disk.....

I agree with robslob. In fact, what he suggests is what I wound up doing. I ordered it from Best Buy online, but only received the two-disc set with no bonus disc. I didn't open it up, but took it back to the local Best Buy story and exchanged it for one they had on the shelf with the bonus disc.

By the way, the bonus disc is in a separate sleeve that is shrink-wrapped to the back of the two-disc slipcase. The graphics on the back of the bonus disc sleeve are the same as the graphics on the back of the two-disc slipcase, with the exception that where the UPC is below the set list of Disc 2 on the slipcase, on the bonus disc sleeve it says "Bonus Disc, Things Get Better (Got to Get Better) and Why Does Love Got to be so Sad?". The UPC is relocated up near the neck of the Strat.

If you can find one with the bonus disc, it's definitely worth getting.
