Was all of The Maple Leaf concert shown on Pay Per View also on the Video/VHS copy or was stuff cut out of it?

The pay-per-view was the complete show.

All songs performed that night were shown on the original live "closed
circuit" broadcast (pay-per-view), but the VHS video (Who Rocks
America) was edited with some songs deleted (Cry If You Want and Dr.
Jimmy being two that come to mind). If you notice, in the the VHS
video, Roger Daltrey introduces Drowned by saying "Here's another one
from Quadrophenia, this one's called Drowned". The observant viewer,
like myself, would have noticed that they hadn't performed a song from
Quadrophenia at that point....at least on the VHS version, but they
had indeed performed Dr Jimmy, it was just cut from the VHS. Can you
tell I watched this about a million times in high school?
