This is really interesting. A lot of inside baseball here.
This makes sense. They were going for a certain kind of perfection and I think they achieved it but as enjoyable as ESL was (or is) just doesn't have the feel of a Rush concert like ATWAS did. The track order, the fades just doesn't capture the MP tour correctly and dedicating side 2 to the previous tour gives ESL more of a compilation feel than a concert. This only strengthens the case for a 40th Anniversary ESL that is taken from the Montreal/Toronto/Edmonton dates of the MP tour. I'm fine with editing in the best parts of these shows to make the best version possible but really the MP tour was one of the peaks of their long touring history and deserves to be preserved in complete form, something neither the album or video does properly.
I've posted on this topic a few times - yeah I'm a bit obsessed.
