I think he says it is the same arrangement, not the performance.

The intro is the same but it plays slower and there is a long vocal solo performed by one of the back up singers plus a guitar solo. Not the same at all.

Laserdisc if I recall.  I was once tempted by the format just as BD was being announced and searched available titles.
