This did air already a year or so ago. I remember that it was great to see the two Stevie songs finally with the audio mixed professionally. And those two clips are already on YouTube. I have the bootleg DVD of Stevie's whole performance and the audio was taken off the soundboard and is not mixed and after about four songs or so Stevie's vocal drops so low that you can hardly hear her and the background singers drown her out. Plus Stevie was way too high on drugs that night, so that also kind of ruins most of her performance. But it is still historically interesting and she looks so beautiful.
