On the Midge forum I was told the audio and video are finished and that the 5:1 mix is being done as we speak. It is now just a case of finding a label to release it laugh

It was filmed in HD so here's hoping for a Blu Ray release ! excited

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 01 Jul 2009 03:50:00

Perhaps - if Uvox havn't secured a label to release the concert - the guys should self release: a downloadable DMR version and a physical DVD-R (or small run press).
This way 100% of the profit returns to the band to help fund future projects...

Having seen them myself in Sheffield (what a lucky break that was), I can only hope that the eventual release will be full concert length, i.e. about 105mins. I'd be happy to see any concert DVD release, but also really annoyed if they reduced it to say an hour.
Can anyone here say how long the disk is likely to be?

I can´t believe that the DVD doesn´t consist the complete gig - if not it would be more than disappointing.

In addition I expect also lots of Bonus material -interviews, rehearsals etc.

OMD, Gary Numan, Anne Clark, Erasure also released complete gigs plus bonus material...

PS:
By the way:
Where are the remaining songs of the Monument gig???????

I never understood why only some songs were released - does anybody have an answer to this??

Yes my computer plays all formats but I would really prefer to see the concert on my flat screen television. No matter what the quality of the computer display it just isnt the same thing.

It is disappointing but when you read the Quartet/Monument thread, you will hopefully understand the reason. Also the other artists you listed have not released all thier concerts complete either for usually the very same reasons as Ultravox. Some shows are not released at all, so no-one even knows their incomplete.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Mon, 27 Jul 2009 21:20:00

I went and read that thread mentioned, and can understand the reasons mentioned in it for not releasing all material if the artiste(s) don't believe the quality is sufficient. That was probably true 25 years ago, maybe even 10-15 years ago, but there is no excuse for it nowadays. We have miniature camcorders that are near DVD quality, phones etc, and some of the youtube footage I've seen (apart from being shaky) is good quality. I for example have a mini-DV camcorder good enough for near broadcast and/or commercial DVD quality.

I go back to my original point, in light of today's technology, and an earlier comment that it had been filmed in HD. There should be no excuse for not releasing a full length concert disk, DVD or BLU-Ray. banghead

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Mon, 27 Jul 2009 21:32:00

Right i think theres some crossed wires here. When Paul directed you to the 'Qaurtet/Monument' thread, that was for those issues alone. The 'Roundhouse' was filmed fully and will be released soon, as for 'Monument' dvd, that was released with just a selection of tracks. Same with their related audio tracks. And thats the way its likely to stay.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Mon, 27 Jul 2009 21:36:00

I didn't go to the Roundhouse gig so I'm not sure if the band made any howlers or not? But if they did, then rest assured that particular track will not be on the DVD.

The cost of overdubbing and remixing it will probably blow the idea of including the track out of the water. I wouldn't imagine Ultravox have a huge budget for this release. Being the perfectionists they are I doubt that they'd sanction a "warts n all" performance either.

But if all went well on the night then there's no real reason why all the show shouldn't be included.

Having watched all the youtube versions of the songs at the Roundhouse there does not seem to be any major problems with the songs that I could see.. all seemed to go ok. Any volume issues would be easily sorted in the mix.
Posted by: Torsten

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 30 Jul 2009 19:27:00

For a real live DVD I would prefer not to have the audio remixed... For me it would be the most authentic to use an unedited and untouched version of the mix straight of the desk from that night... with full dynamics and no further work on... it may sound less perfect but it will be more real
Posted by: westo

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 30 Jul 2009 23:54:00

I agree about any 'enhancing' remixing, but if say, Midge's guitar or vocal was too loud or quiet on a particular song turn it up or down a bit, nothing wrong with that.

About 5 years ago I saw Uriah Heep live and the show was being recorded for a full DVD performance.

The filming crew weren't completely happy with 3 of the tracks and asked the band to come back on and play them again. Which they did.

It was great for us in the crowd to have an extended performance and the DVD was released in full.

I'll just be happy to have the DVD before withdrawal sets in any more...HD will be fine as I don't have a blue ray player and wasn't sure what the difference was between that and HD but just did a search....so as far as I can see blue ray discs can store a lot more data which means potentially we could have had more stuff on the DVD...makes more sense why some of you guys were so keen on blue ray now!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 02 Aug 2009 03:35:00

I suppose the DVD will be released in due time for the Christmas time ;-)

Midge was so proud in his biography that Ultravox was the first band to put just one new song onto "The Collection" so that it would sell even better.

Hmmm, if the boys are still as clever - or maybe even more? look at the grey hairs of Chris and Billy and Midge, ähhhhm - no comment - they should do so again. Just one bloody song. What about "Alone" from Midge Ure's Move Me CD reloaded and reshaped by the band as an Ultravox song? Or whatsoever.... Just one bloody song, pleeeeease.

"Blue Ray"? Is that the same gentleman who used to sell risque videograms from a battered suitcase on Sclater Street market? Surely not.

As for the Roundhouse recordings, might they be available as a series of 78s also? I do so enjoy the aroma of the brown paper sleeves, it adds hugely to one's listening pleasure.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 11 Sep 2009 15:44:00

Sadly probably not. I've been so excited by this but its kinda slipping away now - dont think we'll see it.

Real, real shame - it's probably one of those situations - its floating around - and some have seen it - but it never actually comes out for the general masses.

There was another band that I followed that did that - theres a superb video knocking around from 2002 - a great tour - but no official release as yet!!!!! Basically its not going to happen and the stuff is securely under wraps - no boots.

Who knows - live in hope hey!! Personally I dont care if its a very rough version that comes out - surely the clear interest in the DVD would offset the costs to put something basic together? It's easy enough to knock soemthing together on yer ol apple mac these days yourself.... Mind you then people might moan that there are not enough extras or the quality is not what it shoudl be!! Perhaps its not worth the hastle given some of the responses to the remasters wink

At the moment I'm living off YouTubes - the ones from Duisburg are actually very good soundwise but visually the band are too far away on the vids that have the best sound. Still - better than nowt!!

Actually - there was a vid up on youtube by 'Warrior Vision' - its the best sound I've heard on all of the videos so far - Im sure they must have 'doctored' it in some way - it was a take of the Thin Wall at Roundhouse - does anyone know this person? Is there anymore of that quality knocking about by the Warrior Vision? The sound was excellent - very clear and the visual impact was good too - great zoom on Billys violin solo! Go check it out... laugh

No, it's most definitely the bands intention for the Roundhouse show to get an official DVD release. We were given the rough cut by Live Nation at the end of June. There would have been no point in putting on the extra London show, or spending money on getting it professionally filmed for it not to be made available to the wider public at some stage.

And there's a very good point. Given the amount of stuff of, at best, 'variable quality' that's available on sites such as YouTube, I imagine it's exactly the reason the band would want a professionally released film capturing the Return to Eden show to be out there in the world and available for people to see.

That's actually a very healthy attitude to have. Considering WMG's little tiff with YouTube and other similar cases, there's the fact that YouTube imposes certain restrictions on uploaded videos - initially to avoid issues with allocated server space and such, but it's also an effective countermeasure to avoid "pirates" posting wholesale DVD rips online.

But bootlegs have been going on since personal tape recorders first hit the public market, and this is no different. Most of the recordings from the RTE tour are from other gigs than the Roundhouse anyway, but my point is that it's much better to use YouTube for strategic marketing, and then give the fans a treat with a proper DVD release of one of the highlights of the tour.

I'm holding out for a Christmas release, and although I'm satisfied with having the show on DVD, I hope there's a couple of goodies on the disc for the anoraks in the crowd. I'd love for the DVD to have an audio commentary track, if that's not too much to ask. Like I said, I'll be happy as long as it's released, but if I could ask for anything, it would be audio commentary.

Since it cannot be said often enough - a big Thank You to the EV crew for their unrelenting fire of enthusiasm - even when some of the fans take a turn for the nastier. Fantastic job so far, people!

Although the Turnaround time on some DVD'S can be quick from the time they are filmed,i wasn't expecting to see this one emerge this year.
The average time seems to be about a year...so given that we have already had a lot of output this year,i reckon the DVD release will coincide with next Springs tour dates.

Considering Lament and U-Vox were relased a couple of weeks ago, and knowing it took No-Man over a year to release their DVD of the August 2008 London's Bush Hall concert, I think MickF is right and we probably can expect the DVD somewhere around April next year.

It is disappointing but when you read the Quartet/Monument thread, you will hopefully understand the reason. Also the other artists you listed have not released all thier concerts complete either for usually the very same reasons as Ultravox. Some shows are not released at all, so no-one even knows their incomplete. [/b]

That isn't the way normally, it's generally an edited Live CD due to 80 minute time constraints followed by a longer if not full set DVD.

See OMD - A&M Live and DD - Live In London as recent-ish examples.

Spandau have the rather substantial backing of a record company and have produced imho(from what I have heard of it ) a pretty piss poor best of (with two new tracks) for them. Ultravox haven't an are doing with no backing.

Funnily enough i was thinking about the OMD scenario..CD release ahead of the DVD.I suppose one of the problems is how to format it etc.

I've already forgotten how long the Ultravox set was? 100 minutes ?

I had in mind a double cd thing though- if they would do it.

The main thing is that they do it at all!

I have my Gran's old wind up gramophone. I was wondering if the Roundhouse show could be made available on a series of wax cylinders. Now that would be definitive!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 26 Feb 2010 02:26:00

And as a 2 x DVD/CD set, by the looks of it - and was that a mention of Chrysalis I saw there smile So, it looks like it is going through EMI rather than someone else, which is rather neat, I think.

Shame this isn't on the UK HMV site. But, if it is ready for sale in Japan on April 5th, the final track listing, extras etc. must be available. Is someone on here hiding something?

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 27 Feb 2010 01:18:00

So, April 5th it is then. I suspect that the forum will fall silent for a few hours while we are all watching the masters at work. Only five short weeks to go until we reach the glorious day woohoo

April 5th falls on Easter Monday. I think I speak for us all when I say it will be a long weekend. And no amount of Easter eggs will distract my mind from those two five inch rotating digital discs. Saturday through to Sunday evening will be almost unbearable as, how could we forget, Vienna could be at the number one spot in the charts (where it belongs) smile The celebrations from that will lead us all nicely into Day zero . Ah, the bliss.....

Yes... i hope so, there's a few bands i like Nightwish, Within Tempotation etc and they put out tour dvds and it was 1 dvd and 2 cds... in fact more and more i feel bands with a dedicated fanbase such as Ultravox have are making the full version available as an audio and makes sense too...

Thats the impression I got at the time, that they were recording every gig and going to compile the best recordings for the cd.There were definitely ambient microphones present at the Hammersmith gig and from some of the photos I remember other gigs as well.

If you order from Play they usually send stuff out before release date usually you get it the Saturday before if your lucky.

What a weekend that would be new Doctor Who on the Saturday evening and Ultravox to watch around that !

Paul - the ambient Mics were used for the In Ear Monitoring that the whole band used (as opposed to floor wedges) to add "atmosphere" to the sound the band hear in their IEM and were not part of any recording set up. When the show at the Roundhouse was recorded approx 10 mics around the balcony were used to capture the crowd noise. A quantity of the rest of the shows were recorded but just as a L&R off the FOH desk direct to CDR and as such are not multi tracks and not "remixable".....

Actually,because of the unusual design of the Roundhouse, i'm not sure that it is best setting acoustically.
A novelty venue nonetheless!

HMV are the only supplier I've regularly been surprised and pleased with at the speed of their pre-order deliveries (most of the Ultravox re-masters on a Saturday, I think one on a Friday, and Dolby's Flat earth half-way through the week before!).

It'll be interesting to see what happens with this months cluster of 80s releases besides the Visage CD, naming no names amongst the EMI batch smile

Bit of a warm-up to the Roundhouse disc(s) I think.

So, do you know if this means that the CD in the 'deluxe' package will be the full show (i.e. not the highlights CD + the DVD)? [/b]
Hi Ian,

The 2CD+1DVD 'deluxe' package is the full show audio and full show video (18 tracks). The Highlights CD (13 tracks) will be on its own, no DVD.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO HOLD YOUR HORSES ON THE PRE-ORDERS. We potentially have a really special deal in the pipeline, where you'll get something extra (something reeeeally good) - and what's more, it's cheaper than either Play or EIL.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 09 Mar 2010 01:24:00

OK, WE NOW HAVE THE DETAILS! This will go out on a mailer tonight.

The first 500 purchases through Townsend Records via this link will receive a FREE 'Return to Eden' silk-screened artwork print.

The print is A4 in size (210 x 297mm), hand screen-printed like the tour posters onto quality paper stock and will have the band's signatures on. Please note that the signatures are pre-printed (i.e. the signatures are printed along with the artwork), but it will still be a beautiful thing to have framed. laugh

One art print per order - grab 'em while you can! Townsend aren't advertising this to their own mailing list until Wednesday, so you have a couple of days to get in there before they do.

Oh and Townsend are cheaper than Amazon, EIL or Play, at £14.99 for the Special Edition 2CD+DVD set and £9.99 for the Highlights CD.

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Cerise, Rob & Paul.

Yep, the single CD only version is of highlights (13 out of 18 tracks), not the full show.

The DVD+2CD version is the full show on DVD and the full show on audio. The DVD also has a 30-min 'reformation' documentary.

It is particularly pleasing that the WHOLE set is on the DVD,and it hasn't been edited.
Amazingly their first full-length concert on any format!
I can't help thinking about the past,though,and the wasted opportunities in their hey-day.
But that was then,and this is now.
I hope it sells well and justifies all the effort put in.

And wouldn't it be great,Just great if this forthcoming tour with new set was also recorded ? Tracks from the catalogue recorded 'live' for the first time,as it were.

Monument was a major let-down really when you compare it to it's neaest rival in Japan's Oil On Canvas. In fairness I can't remember any live albums by other bands during this time, although I guess I could have missed them.

The one thing that really showcases the Monument album and in turn Ultravox as a live powerhouse was the live version of The Voice which still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when Midge yells 'our support band, Messengers!' and then takes me to another plane when the synchronised drumming begins. For me, this is the best live track ever, bar none.

[b]OK, WE NOW HAVE THE DETAILS! This will go out on a mailer tonight.

The first 500 purchases through Townsend Records via this link will receive a FREE 'Return to Eden' silk-screened artwork print.

The print is A4 in size (210 x 297mm), hand screen-printed like the tour posters onto quality paper stock and will have the band's signatures on. Please note that the signatures are pre-printed (i.e. the signatures are printed along with the artwork), but it will still be a beautiful thing to have framed. laugh

One art print per order - grab 'em while you can! Townsend aren't advertising this to their own mailing list until Wednesday, so you have a couple of days to get in there before they do.

Oh and Townsend are cheaper than Amazon, EIL or Play, at £14.99 for the Special Edition 2CD+DVD set and £9.99 for the Highlights CD.

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Cerise, Rob & Paul. [/b]
There has been a slight change in the spec of the free art print. I'm so sorry everyone, it's still a bit up in the air but it looks like it will now be:

• A4 art print of the album artwork on light card (not heavyweight paper)
• Full colour litho print, not screen printed (probably)
• No signatures printed on (probably), so that you can use it to get real signatures
• The initial run will be limited to 500 copies
• It's exclusive to Townsend, available nowhere else

Sorry about this. It's still in a bit of a state of flux with regards to screen printed or not, and pre-printed signatures or not, and probably won't be settled for a couple of weeks - but we are assured that it'll look absolutely lovely and be perfect for framing. smile

Cheers!
Cerise, Rob and Paul.

Yes, i totally agree!
Although the drum sequence on the last tour was not as dynamic in my view,as it was played on acoustic drums,not the old Simmons electronic pads.
And yes, 'Live albums/videos' were not the fashion,by and large in the 80's - a great shame that so much history was lost.But i believe there was a reason Chrysalis at the time didn't want to do it.
However, all the previously unreleased 'live stuff'on the recent remasters has been like a gift from god.An indication "what might have been".

Interesting comments on this (no disrepect intended).

My own humble view is that "Live" albums rarely represent the atmosphere of the real show (unless you live in a cinema with a giant PA rig!) - as such, most live albums have always been neatly tucked away at the back of my collection after I have heard them once or twice. Live DVD's though, contain the other dimension (visual) needed to give them a certain credibility, as such I've ordered this (Roundhouse DVD+) set, and am looking forward to seeing it!

Oil on Canvas was so "clean" that at times it sounded like a remix of the album tracks. It lacked a certain bite. Not that I didn't enjoy the tour, I really did, but just that it didn't have the overwhelming power of a "rock" gig. I'd love to see a full DVD of those concerts again, the bits I find on YouTube are a bit flat - but illustrate my feelings quite well (is it live or is it Memorex?). BTW - Mick Karn sliding all over the place was one of the highlights of that tour for me - I picked up many injuries in those days trying to emulate that at school! It impressed the first year kids though!

The full Oil On Canvas concert film is included on the The Very Best Of Japan-DVD that was released a few years ago. I don't watch it very often but prefer it to the LP/CD album. I thought that sliding walk Mick Karn does looked very funny the first time I saw it. Wonder if he ever tripped?

Actually I don't really disagree with much of what you've said. I truly believe that the live version of The Voice more than captures the live dynamism of the band at the time. Not so convinced by the other tracks and I also agree that it's rare that Live albums as a whole work.

Live DVD's are a superb add to the genre, far superior in every respect to their VHS equivalents, it's just a shame that there is no BD release to go with it as I'd much rather have optimum visual quality.

I also agree that Oil On Canvas does sound too clean and my understanding is that some of the tracks are actually studio versions (some if not all of the instrumentals). My point was that in direct comparison with the number of tracks, Monument looked like the cheap option. Oil On Canvas was gatefold double album with 15 tracks, Monument only had the 6.

As previously mentioned, you can pick up Oil On Canvas on DVD now on a Best Of, although it looks as if it was deleted and you can only pick it up second hand from Amazon. The sound was great but picture quality not so much, but I haven't seen it in a while so it may look better upscaled on my blu-ray player.

Posted by: robak

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 11 Mar 2010 02:29:00

And why it some of the best live albums are also the ones that never get issued? wink

I have a killer Kraftwerk mixing desk concert - 2 hours or so - from 1981, so they were at their tops before they managed to cheese off Bartos and Flur. There's even a song on there that they never stuck on an album, too - sun and the moon, or something like that.

Being Kraftwerk, and the amount of time it took us to get re-masters of their albums, I'd put the chances of that ever getting commercially released somewhere close to zero... i.e. only just behind the possibility of getting all their 12"s, 7" edits and videos on disc too smile

But, I digress.

I know what you mean re: the track difference between the original Monument and Oil on Canvas, which I still really like, even if some of the tracks - yes, it was the instrumentals - are studio ones. Agree too, that the DVD picture quality wasn't nearly as good as the brush up done to Monument. Such a shame that none of the Ultravox tours was documented in full until now - I know they feel strongly that it was the one omission from what they did back then, hence capturing The Roundhouse show for prosterity.

I look forward to seeing Ultravox 2009 stylee at last, and all in the comfort of my home wink

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 11 Mar 2010 02:52:00

Well i know now that the lads do regret it,as typified by Billy Curries comments in the excellent Record Collector article when referring to the absence of any film from the Set Movements tour - arguably their best.

The irony of that, is that they made that Design Matters Documentary,talking about what they put into stage design and so on.
It all mattered so much that they didn't even film their own show!

I think it is a bit like going on holiday and not taking any photos !
Anyway, now we have the excellent medium in DVD in which i think the concerts look and sound fantastic - especially on a large screen TV.

And i guess when 3D arrives it will be like being on stage with the band.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 11 Mar 2010 03:04:00

Ah, well, you see, that's probably because it's what Billy told me smile

And thanks for the compliment on the article and interview in RC - it was a pleasure to speak to them, and they all kindly allowed me to print the full interviews myself too.

Oh, and I always thought that about Design Matters too. What a missed opportunity.

Still, not long to go now!

You're right - the Oil On Canvas DVD is ropey: my own VHS rip (with a 5.1 upmix & audio clean up is much better!

Speaking of "New Europeans", our good friend Jage at the Japanese Ultravox fan site (Ultravox.jp) has dug up an old Japanese commercial that featured New Europeans, starring none other than Issey Miyake the fashion designer, knocking back some whiskey. Click HERE to view. You kind of wonder what is being advertised!!

Great to hear that New Europeans will be on the setlist next month. I hope it will be played right after Astradyne: that would be so cool!

Speaking of live albums, Oil On Canvas doesn't really have a live atmos at all; you'd hardly know it was recorded live. By contrast, Soft Cell's live double CD is astonishingly live i.e has a pack of atmos and a really great live feeling. I was at two of the gigs that featured on it and can testify that they caught the feeling of the gig really well. Check Say Hello, Wave Goodbye where Marc stops singing and the crowd take the roof off. Class!!

I just pre-ordered through Townsend but I am trying to see if there is a way to see the order status on their site, as you can do on the Amazon site, to see that the order is open and to see when it gets shipped, but I can't seem to find this option.

I just pre-ordered through Townsend but I am trying to see if there is a way to see the order status on their site, as you can do on the Amazon site, to see that the order is open and to see when it gets shipped, but I can't seem to find this option. Is this at all possible? Is it safe to order from this store?
Thanks. [/b]
Once you have logged in to your account there is a "view your current and past orders" option in the "my profile" page.

Never had any problems with them in the past - they do a lot of stuff for John Foxx & Gary Numan

Yes, it would be a VERY BAD deal for swedish customers to order it from cdon. It's extremely expensive and you won't get the limited edition with the print for that price. If you order it through UK stores you will save at least half that money and will probably get it sooner too! smile

Out of interest, Rob, is there no footage from the Set Movements tour? Terrible shame if not. That was the first time I saw them! Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, very special. I remember the paper the next day said, "Did it remind you of the blitz?" I'd love to see some footage from that tour but I guess it's lost to the mists of time.... Cheers! H18

Not that I'm aware of - it seems the only thing that was shot was what you saw on Design Matters, and that was only from some odd side of stage angles, I seem to recall, with non-mixing desk feed sound.

Okay, dudes, here's the wee tiny turd on the great big snowy Christmas cake. I've just had a thrilling listen to the snippets on the Amazonian web-site. Quite nice, really quite nice indeed (and I was there) but . . .

I may be mis-speaking but why does Midge's voice have so much treatment on it on all of the songs? You know, I heard him over Christmas on some talking and singing programme for young people who stay up late, broadcast on the television device, and he was singing and playing without plugs and his voice was still so good and so distinctive and so very strong; so, why the need for so much augmentation here when it really isn't needed?

I believe it was Ms. Toyah who sang, "Be proud, be loud, be heard" so, go on Midge: go bareback for a few songs and let that voice do the talking!

You may now throw your stones. Sedimentary only, mind, nothing igneous, they're too brutal.

It’s a very good point.
But its pretty standard particularly if the record company is involved that the product has to be polished up and also the fact that it’s also a DVD release that there will be some slight treatment which will give a better listening and viewing experience.

Not as bad as artists from the past who have used vast amounts of overdubs on live albums.

Good example Thin Lizzy – Live and Dangerous
Quote from Wikipedia
Lynott asked if they could re-record some vocals due to technical issues. After spending some time overdubbing various bits, noticing the impact on the result, they ended up re-recording all the vocals, guitars and bass. So the only real live elements of Live and Dangerous are the drums and the audience. Visconti (Producer) justified this by stating that every track was performed before a live audience. Tony Visconti has stated that the album is "75percent recorded in the studio."

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 17 Mar 2010 15:47:00

Ok, I know what you mean when you speak about overdubbing etc. and I´m not a friend of that kind of treatment of a live recording, but: It´s always a difference between the live sound hearing through the speakers at the show or hearing just the recording without the accoustic influences of the speakers, the venue itself etc. I hope you understand what I mean. Don´t get me wrong, this is just a try to find out why the recording could be different to that what you heard at the concert. But you could be right, and the treatment was too heavy! sad

Because they won't all fit on one disc I presume - I recall the gigs being more than 80 minutes long so the only way to fit it onto one disc would be to edit down some of the tracks.

See you point most definitely and yes - even after listening to the snippets it is obvious it's been 'touched.'

I would have expected some manipulation of parts that were perhaps not quite so clear at the time - I personally felt the bass needed bringing out on some of the tracks - )going off youtubes - not too reliable I know! ) i.e. just a basic mix of the audio tracks really - that's happened from what I can hear. I agree with your points re Midge's vocal - it does not need too much enhancement - on these small snippets it sounds quite affected. I noticed a similar vocal effect on the remaster live version of Thin Wall (can't remember which album it appears on - is this on Monument remaster?).

Having said that, as already pointed out - esp. with a record company involved its quite common to dress it all up a little these days - while it needs to capture the live feel, it also needs to be current, and the listening experience needs to work on more generic audio systems at home - and production tools are there to be used.

Also I think the vocal was slightly affected at source - I think he must have had quite a bit of reverb/echo as I noticed during a point in Visions in Blue where he walked away from the mic and his voice was still carrying. I wonder how they recorded such signals though - i.e. did they somehow bypass any such effect and then maybe add it later - the result of which we may be hearing now on the samples?

I quite liked some of the raw 70's live recordings from various bands of the era - even studio recordings could be raw - I have a studio recording from an old obscure band called May Blitz - a rock three piece - and you can hear the wah pedal click on after the guitar solo when everything calms down - I think it’s a great, very revealing - a sense of intimacy about it - but today it would probably be mixed out and dressed up a little hence losing some personality.

Hard to comment right now without hearing the whole thing run though - but perhaps such enhancement is slight overkill - I'd like to hear more natural dynamic - but lets hear the whole thing in its entirety…..it may be overall there is a good mix of a raw live feel with some additional spit and polish - the crowd noise isn't particularly evident on the snippets but should be audible on the full version and as such give it a better live ambience to contrast with any polish.

It's friggin good though huh? !!! laugh Well looking foward to hearing it - so excited - infact I've already been asked twice today if I've taken something! lol roflmao

As Boxnudger says, the whole concert is longer than 80 minutes and so would not fit into one disc. And incidentally - if the second disc was unnecessary as you seem to suggest, why would adding it be a financial decision? It costs more to have two discs than one! confused2

Re financial gain, and I dont mean this directed at your post by the way - just in general - I do wish people wouldnt get at musicians if they DO dare to seek financial gain - what should we expect - its their job!! Its how they earn a living!!! If they have a talent like that - and people want to pay to hear that then yes they should seek financial gain - it would be foolish not to cash in. They have provided a product - you buy the product - thats how it works. I know i wouldnt be coming to work if there was no financial gain!! smile

I think he means that having two discs puts the price up. However, I'm not sure that it does looking at the pricing.

For a live show, splitting across two discs is perfectly acceptable. The worst case of this being done for reasons of pure profit was the Beatles 'red' and 'blue' CDs. Certainly the 'red' album could have easily fitted onto one CD but it was spread across two, presumably to replicate the vinyl album. The effect was, however, that they were able to charge much more for it.

The first band i ever came across that was doing the 2CDs/1DVD was a band called Nightwish and their 'End Of An Era' DVD/CDs... that retails for £19.99 New and has the same content as the upcoming Ultravox one so i agree this is really good deal, i actually had to look twice to make sure i read it right smile

"Let's not forget but officially its a new album from the boys in 24 years. So I think everyone is getting a good deal"

Absolutely!

And it also seems to me to be the ultimate compliment from EMI, in that they feel a new Ultravox live album is worthy of being released across two formats. How many other recent band revivals have been given that treatment?

Win win, as far as I'm concerned, particularly when you see what HMV are knocking both of them out for now, which is why I ordered the special from Townsend, and then held back to order one of each from HMV too, so no eggs all in one basket smile

Oh, and that's also me too re: Duran Duran (which I really rate as debut albums go, and still feel its the best they ever did en-masse) and Seven and the Ragged Tiger (although only really for the DVD from that new set) smile

Well I've got my tour poster screen print framed and hanging up in the hallway - I'm lucky that my other half (despite liking mostly classical music) actually really likes the Rage Face, otherwise I wouldn't have stood a chance! And I have to say, it looks bloody fantastic. laugh

I'm hoping my other half is going to be just as obliging, if it means his vintage framed LFC shirt is having to be wall mounted too, then so be it wink

Good example Thin Lizzy – Live and Dangerous
Quote from Wikipedia
Lynott asked if they could re-record some vocals due to technical issues. After spending some time overdubbing various bits, noticing the impact on the result, they ended up re-recording all the vocals, guitars and bass. So the only real live elements of Live and Dangerous are the drums and the audience. Visconti (Producer) justified this by stating that every track was performed before a live audience. Tony Visconti has stated that the album is "75percent recorded in the studio."
Vox connection: wasn't this the album that Midge listened to on headphones as he flew to join Lizzy on the far east tour he did with them before joining up with the lads? If it was then he was learning the chords and riffs to songs which had been re-recorded in the studio! Hardly live and dangerous at all really!

I may be mis-speaking but why does Midge's voice have so much treatment on it on all of the songs? You know, I heard him over Christmas on some talking and singing programme for young people who stay up late, broadcast on the television device, and he was singing and playing without plugs and his voice was still so good and so distinctive and so very strong; so, why the need for so much augmentation here when it really isn't needed?

I believe it was Ms. Toyah who sang, "Be proud, be loud, be heard" so, go on Midge: go bareback for a few songs and let that voice do the talking!

You may now throw your stones. Sedimentary only, mind, nothing igneous, they're too brutal.
Just found this:

Return To Eden features classic Ultravox hits such as The Thin Wall, All Stood Still, The Voice, Lament and, of course, Vienna.

Midge said: "There are no overdubs or fancy studio techniques. It's so easy to tweak the vocals or re-record dodgy guitar parts - you can fix anything on computer.

Davox. I think the issue Osty may have is with the obvious treatment of Midge's voice on the samples we've heard. Nothing wrong with that of course - if it was treated on the night to mix into the surrounding aural experience of the band, then it's been done for artistic reasons which is understandable. Osty's not neccesarily referring to it being anything to do with overdubs, which Midge is quite correct in saying can be done (and often is) with a computer afterwards. The issues are separate I think.

Paul

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 26 Mar 2010 21:06:00

I appreciate that the DVD is region 0 for "international compatibility" reasons but why do EMI insist on issuing material in NTSC, particularly in this case when it was apparent (from left of mixing desk) that the gig was being shot using HD equipment? The reduction in quality over PAL when played on UK sets coupled with the reduction in lines is similar to viewing through net curtains (at least it was with Monument). Surely the volumes this disc will shift could have warranted multi-format issues. I'd certainly pay a premium for a blu-ray version.

I believe that NTSC is still leagues ahead of PAL, so a good decision I'd say? Blu Ray? Hmmm before long DVD formats will actually be irrelevant as we will all download what we want when we want. No format to worry about, everything in HD. News reports that Toshiba lost the format race, but I believe that they may have won as they won't need to invest millions to maintain something that is going to be out of date before you can ..............

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 26 Mar 2010 23:03:00

Both TV standards have plus and minus points but work well when the material being viewed is in that country's native format. However, an NTSC disc viewed on a PAL set has to have its resolution up-converted (480 lines to 576) and its frame rate reduced (30 to 25 lines). If "Roundhouse" is in a wide-screen aspect ratio then this shouldn't be a noticeable issue which is probably why Monument looked awful in comparison with the original video as it was a 4:3 conversion (albeit in faux wide-screen).

Ashes to Ashes, more Lost, (potentially) the Roundhouse discs, Doctor Who, another Grand Prix and then the next Flashforward on Monday... and a date buried in there too, somewhere. That's my Easter sorted smile

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 01 Apr 2010 04:38:00

Brian - Rob filmed during the afternoon. Midge gave Rob his camera and asked him to capture some shots of fans talking about the band and their reaction to the tour. smile

Caz - the bit where Chris chats about his mobile phone is on there, but filmed from the side by Midge whilst Chris talks to Lee Curran. You've seen it in one of the clips somewhere (can't remember where this one appeared), but from Lee's POV before.

I've watched part of the show and the documentary. There are a few errors in song names, omission of crew credits (and credit for Rob's Voxpops / shot of walking up to the Odeon), but apart from that it sounds FANTASTIC and it's really fun to watch and relive that night. Weird to see yourself in the crowd! I can see Rob snapping away there near the beginning, too. laugh

If you were near the front of the queue going in (Daz M!), or near the front of the stage, watch it carefully - quite a few faces there that you might recognise! And of course in the Voxpops in the documentary (off the top of my head - Chris L, Lava, Dave Conn, everyone from The Ultravox Station in Japan, Rodney, Bill and Tina, Kari forgetting song names!!). There were more I think, I'll check through again tomorrow. wink

Around 7pm and bring a couple of cans.
Not had a chance to look at DVD, but will watch later this evening. The Audio CD's sound fantastic you won't be disappointed, it really does sound great.

I ordered from Townsend Records and was lucky as post today in Scotland. Hopefully everyone else in the UK gets DVD/CD tomorrow in the post.

Well, Amazon are still showing my order as not despatched which means that I aint getting it until at least Tuesday I guess. And, as I work away from home all week means that I won't get to listen/watch it until at least Friday. Life, eh? Still, Hammersmith on Sunday...come on!

I'd ordered mine from Play as they've been amazing with stuff in the past, and mine is still up as a pre-order to, Thankfully I ordered another from Townshends when the offer came up so hopefully that one will arrive tomorrow. The kids can have my Play one so they don't keep nicking mine laugh

Have to take daughter to dance class and the post always comes while I'm out. Our local postal workers always leave parcels on the doorstep if there's nobody in.

Chris: "I like Newcastle"
Midge: "you mean you like to LEAVE Newcastle?"
Chris: "No, I like Newcastle, I think it's got a lot going for it.... (pause).... there's a big ASDA... and there's a big Tesco over there..."

ROFLMAO!! roflmao

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 03 Apr 2010 18:45:00

Mine fell through the letterbox this morning, clattering to the floor like it was thrown, but no ill-effects, thankfully. Surprised that it was nothing more than a cardboard "envelope" from Amazon, but the quality of the contents far outweighed the appearance. I've already watched the docu (excellent, and with some very welcome, candid, at times uneasy sections), watched some of the gig, and currently ripping the audio to MP3 for the car. All in all, a very nice holiday-weekend surprise!

EDIT : What's the A4 print thing that folks are mentioning? Was this a Townsend-only kinda deal?
Posted by: Firefly

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 03 Apr 2010 18:54:00

agree with Ray Ray, the packaging looks and feels nice! love the fact that it is released on Chrysalis, such a good move. makes it the first genuine 'new' release for 25 years, and that is worth a celebration.

just need an EP of new material now... wink
I know, 'want, want, want'. off to p### off the neighbours with a roundhouse re-enactment in my front room. best bit is I now have all week off, culminating in Hammersmith Sunday!! woop woop! what a great week.

even my 7yo has placed Midge as his 'bestest' singer over Justin Bieber (if you don't have kids that prob won't mean a thing!).

Congratulations to Townsends on winning the fastest dispatch award on the new CD/DVD. Good luck to those who chose otherwise... woohoo

Great service from Townsend (as usual). The padded envelope had a 'fragile' sticker on it and the a4 card was in it's own card-backed envelope inside the main envelope. And we have the sort of postman who knocks rather than shoves, which helps!

one last comment from me, then I'm off... this is a brilliant release and the sound quality is terrific... if I am incredibly fussy, the final drumming on The Voice is not as chest-thumpingly dramatic as it is on Monument, but then much water has flowed since then... haven't got that far through the DVD yet, so it may need the visuals to do it justice.

I am now going to have to play the two DVD's back to back aren't I? excited

looking forward to reading the reviews, perhaps that needs a seperate forum entry...

PS come on Burnley and Sunderland, do Liverpool a favour! that would truely complete my day.

Success! woohoo Just to be on the safe side I left a note on the door for our postie, to put it in our paper recycling bin if it came while we were out this morning. It worked and I've now got my parcel safe and sound. Was a bit soggy round the edges as it was raining, but the print was ok as it was in another envelope as you mentioned. Know what I'll be listening to in the car this afternoon, luckily my 5 year old likes Ultravox laugh

Mine arrived from Townsend this morning as well - I live fairly close to Great Harwood where their shop is, so it will have no doubt been around the houses on its way to me. Not had chance to listen yet. Mrs The Voice has buggered off to Birmingham for the weekend on some NASUWT conference leaving me toddler sitting for our 3 year old. So, early bath and bed for James, followed by a curry and a small bottle of beer (have to be responsible adult) for me, the new Doctor Who (who is a Blackburn Rovers fan so he's alright in my book !) and then DVD time. Will rip the CD's and listen to them on the bus on the way to work Tuesday.

Roll on 26th and Amsterdam. excited

Our kindly postie rang the bell and it was duly delivered in great nick. What can I say? It's a real gem. I must admit I had a tear in my eye when watching the reunion scene on the documentary: Midge and Warren had seen each other in twenty-three years and it just struck me how long that was and how magic their reunion has been.

The artwork print: lovely and framable but slightly off-centre! Roll on Sunday week and to all those going to Brum on Tuesday: have a great one and post the setlist here!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 04 Apr 2010 04:05:00

I thought mine hadn't turned up today as all I got on the door mat this morning was a load of bills frown

Then I went outside after lunch to get something from my car and saw a big white envelope propped up against the side of the door. My Return to Eden DVD and bonus print had turned up! woohoo At least Mr. Postie didn't bend it trying to get it through the letter box and thankfully it wasn't raining!

I tried the DVD in my ancient computer but it refused to play it (it seems to have taken a dislike to all DVDs of late). My mother is in the front room watching TV so I'll have to wait until she goes to bed before playing the disc on the DVD player. I am however listening to the 2x CDs and... OMIGOD! What a great job they've done on recording these! Superb sound quality, a great performance and thankfully they've mixed in the sound of the audience just right. Many live recordings either almost totally cut the sound of the audience out or they are too intrusive. This recording has got the balance just right and it's just like being there all over again.

Damn, talk about getting me worked up for the gigs next week! Now, I need my mother to get to bed early so I can play the DVD...

Nice embossing on the 2CD/DVD version, though.

Isn't it funny how you notice some of the little details like the track names on the band's Macs? Some full names, some abbreviated names and then All Stood Still named as A.S.S.

Couldn't stop giggling when I noticed that on Chris's Mac during the song...

I wonder whose idea that was?
Posted by: KenA

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 04 Apr 2010 04:50:00

A.S.S. - a track that's not been shortened to its initials before - and now seeing it, it's clear why ! Took me a few seconds to work it out. Also, I wonder if Edingburgh (I think) has changed the ID and password to connect to its wireless network ? Quite clearly displayed on a poster on a wall in the dressing room !

I had an awful morning - it would appear the DVD had not turned up. Perhaps Mr Postie took the morning off. I left the house about 11am and went about my business - in a bit of a mood to be fair - but having got back around 4pm - there was the package!!!!!

Love the packaging - and the Docu is tear jerking stuff. Not watched the full run yet but what I've seen so far is fantastic! Just converting it all for my iphone and getting the audio into itunes and then its with me on my travels!!!

Will be reviewing shortly.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 04 Apr 2010 06:31:00

Got mine this morning, and much to my wife's bemusement, had to watch the first track on my portable in bed with a coffee. Tried it our briefly this evening on the main system, sound quality seems to be awesome, but will have to wait for a 'guys' evening alone to watch it. With the system pumped up of course, to relive the chest thumping rhythm's I remember from Sheffield.

My only slight disappointment was the art print. There was a big 'do' about it, and I thought it might be something special with at least printed signatures or something, or even a 'limited edition serial number' in one corner. But no, fairly nice card and all, but something I could have printed myself . . .

Still going to enjoy the cd's several times over in the car to and fro from work in the next few weeks!!! wink

Well, yes, I have to agree. When we were first told about it, it was going to be a spot-colour screen print that would be signed by the band. This was revised the next day to a full colour litho print with pre-printed signatures. Then it was revised to a litho print without pre-printed signatures. And when mine arrived today, I was amazed to find that EMI seem to have printed it from a compressed JPEG, so that it's all artefected, rather than the original vector artwork that they possess. I'm absolutely gobsmacked at that, I can't fathom it at all. What twonks.

It's not Townsend's fault though, EMI supplied the prints. It was brilliant of Townsend to do something a bit different and get a bit of excitement going. smile

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 04 Apr 2010 15:45:00

I watched the DVD last night after The Voice Jnr had finally gone to bed. Mrs The Voice is in Birmingham at the NASUWT conference so I settled down to watch Dr Who (brill) and the DVD. Have to say the sound is terrific, the camera work excellent and the docu very insightful. I get the impression Billy can be a bit of a straight-talking, no nonsense Yorkshireman when the mood takes him. There didnt seem to be much interaction between him and Warren.

Its funny, when you go to a gig you dont always appreciate the sound because there's so much going on, your senses cant always take it all in. Manchester was a bit of a drunken haze to be honest, so it was great to see and listen to the arrangements in all their (sober) glory. Considering the guys hadn't played together for nigh-on 23 years, it shows what a talented bunch of musicians they are to be able to perform the tracks so strongly and faithfully using modern equipment. I thought Midge's voice was as strong and powerful as ever, his guitar playing still rocks and Warren looked like he lost a stone in sweat though all the frantic drumming !

I would have liked more close ups on Billy's ARP playing (the camera seemed to be at the wrong side of the keyboard) but other than that I can't fault it at all. Its a worthy and lasting legacy to a truly great and underrated band.

Roll on Amsterdam on the 26th.

The photo was taken at the Roundhouse. But that particular photo does have an unfortunate lighting effect, it's true. In a way it makes Midge look like a slightly bizarre combination of Telly Savalas and Mikhail Gorbachev playing an electric guitar doesn't it?

Watched the documentary now, and think I recognised Cerise in it from her avatar icon!
Amazing warts and all filming from Midge himself, much better than lots of sanatised docu's you see on other disks. Everyone looks well, even thought Warren looked happy as usually you don't see drummers up closely on concerts etc. Curiosity killed the cat;- Is it me or is the fact that he's the only one with black hair, a bit suspicious? Everyone clearly enjoying themselves though, reminds me somewhat of the Pink Floyd reunion at Live8!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 07 Apr 2010 21:06:00

The DVD arrived in Japan today, and coupled with the reviews/pictures of last nights opening show it is a VERY unfortunate time to show this recording! How I wish I was there!!


Anyway, as an initial review, it sounds fantastic, is well shot and probably the best live DVD that I own (and I have many) - the quality is high and the content is superb.

Contrary to some opinions here, I did enjoy the "Making" section - it was enlightening and wonderfully raw. We don't often get to see such emotions.

All in all, a superb DVD - and the timing is perfect for me!

Hats off to the EV team, I doubt if any of this would have ever happened if it hadn't been for them carrying the torch for so long. I am indebted, and very grateful.

I've been a man of few words lately, but now I have to say: I got the package a few minutes ago, now watching the "making of" and - holy crap, are these tears on my cheeks?

Thanks for everyone involved with the production, your effort is truly appreciated here. Hats off.

Midge did actually touch on the live Album and DVD yesterday during the Birmingham gig, stating that "the release had actually charted thanks to you guys" So its down to all Ultravox Fans, but The Greatest Praise of all must go to Cerise, Rob and Paul, Quality Band, Quality Fans and Quality Website, Run by Quality People

I ordered mine from musicnonstop.co.uk tonight after a bit of a search.
Almost got it from amazon.ca but decided to buy from someone who takes PayPal.
These guys cost me $10 LESS (incl. shipping) than any of the others I looked at.
I'll buy from them again!
And now I'm EXCITED to see the DVD!

Watched the documentary (...partly with tears in my eyes)and what can I say: My sister and I are in the documentary, standing near the building at the voxgate chatting with the nice couple from Belgium (...Hello to you both!!!) The concert is great quality, the sound through my Bose soundsystem just blew me away! The print is ok, it arrived without any damages. This package is great value for money!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 08 Apr 2010 16:45:00

I got mine from Townsend yesterday.
I was so happy since I wasn't able to attend the concert last year.
The A4 print was in perfect shape. At first glance, I'm very impressed with the overall artwork & packaging. I watched the documentary first, really happy when seeing Warren & Midge hugged each other the 1st time they met in 23 years.

On to the concert content, I was blown away the moment the background LED screen lit up and Billy started his synth solo after the midsong break in Astradyne. I used to wonder why some people care so much about Mr.X. After watching this live version, now I understand why.

Last night, I haven't finished watching the whole show yet, so will probably be extremely happy again tonight, especially during the drums jamming part in The Voice.

Anyway, are there any plan for the filming of RTE II? Please......

Agree with you on that Piman. Someone else had commented that the screens weren't so good, but they certainly had an effect on me, especially during Astradyne. Seeing the screens again on the video reiterated that.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 08 Apr 2010 17:54:00

My copies of the CD and 2CD/DVD sets arrived today ... the ultimate souvenirs! Just awesome! Yeah, Astradyne is the one, I just had to watch that again straight away ... Building Eden: The Reformation Documentary is quite special, too. It's nice to see the guys behind-the-scenes as 'normal' people, instead of the larger-than-life idols we tend to see them as (from our youth).

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 08 Apr 2010 19:15:00

Hi everyone,

my set from Townsend arrived today and I am absolutely stunned!

The package is amazing - the CD/DVD combo is beautifully designed, the embossing looks great, the booklet is very nice and I love the appearance of the CD/DVD print. Very elegant IMO.

As for the DVD, I could only watch part of the documentary so far and like everyone else already mentioned, it´s overwhelming. So much fun to watch (although for non-native speakers sometimes a bit hard to follow ;-)

Everyone did an amazing job here and I sincerely hope that the chart positions will be even higher soon. Ultravox definitely deserve it!

Thanks again
Tom

P.S.: Forgot to mention the print - sure it would have been nice from EMI to use better graphics, but it does look nowhere as bad as I thought from some comments here. It´ll be great once it´s up on the wall :-)

Haven't had a change to see the DVD yet. But being at the concert last year I know that will be great as well. Just counting down to the Amsterdam gig on the 26th.

Watched it once, but because it's NTSC can't watch it on my DVD video-recorder whilst PAL TV-timer running. So now watching it back on my Sony Blu-Ray player.

All I can say is OMG!! Upscaled to 1080P/60hz, quality still seems pin sharp. I've always thought the Sony put out a better sound, and on DTS it's not far short of being there IMHO.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 11 Apr 2010 04:40:00

My copy arrived this morning and i couldn't unwrap it quick enough!!. I got the 2cd/dvd set and what can i say? the packaging is lovely, Rage in Eden always was my favourite cover. I played the dvd first, the picture and sound quality are brilliant, as someone else said, use the 5.1 DTS, crank it up and you could be there!!.
I watched it from beginning to end and it brought back great memories of last years gig, and took the sting out of the fact that i can't make one this year.
The documentary is just what i was hoping for, and more. The look on Warren's face as he hugged Midge and Chris made me well up a bit too!!
The sound quality of the cd's is also superb and it's a more than welcome addition to my Ultravox collection. Once again, a HUGE thank you to everyone involved in this.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sun, 11 Apr 2010 17:34:00

My DVD package arrived on Thursday here in Germany. Watched the documentary first and after that some parts of the concert.
For 23 years have been dreaming of the reunion and for the last 13 years I never thought it would happen. Last year the dream came true when I attended the Roundhouse concert. Now I am able to relive my dream every day with this fantastic DVD!
Thanks to Midge, Billy, Warren and Chris again for this, thanks to the EV team of course and thanks to everyone involved in the DVD/CD production.
The fact that the album charted in the UK shows the amount of interest in the band that is still there. So guys, there's absolutely no reason to stop here. I hope for many more RETURNS TO EDEN in the future. What about a tour where you just play two complete albums in a row (QUARTET and LAMENT would be fab).

See you in Hannover,

Mike

White China and the other new tracks sound SO great live, that I really wished they´d been included already.

White China was always one of my favourite songs, but the previous live reditions never came close. But what the guys made of it on their Part 2 Tour is just blowing my mind. Brilliantly fantastic!

How about a live EP with the three new tracks ??

EMI missed an opportunity imho they could have recorded the first show and released Vienna as a single with the three new tracks on it !

Cool. Just watched the DVD here in Toronto and loved it. I hope everyone out there are enjoying part 2 of the tour and tonight's Voxgate.
As an added bonus, on the DVD documentary, I can briefly see myself backstage at the Hammersmith when Midge is talking to the Japanese group. What a great thrill it was to see the show and meet the guys.

The CD and the DVD/2CD set. Think HMV mis advertised the CD Really annoyed because now I cant find the DVD/2CD set for less than £25.00.

Impressive! Does that mean there's no chance of more copies being released?

Glad I got in quick with my order.

For those still looking, Townsend doesn't say 'out of stock' on their site (but maybe it will at the checkout stage...?)

TBH, what I want is the full CD but without the DVD, which isn't actually available (I can't watch music DVDs). I didn't realise the CD+DVD was limited though and so have messed up a bit. I can probably find it somewhere though. I was in London last week and HMV down there had the single CD quite prominently displayed which is good.

Hi, I still haven't received my Roundhouse DVD/CD even though I pre-ordered it almost straight after it was announced.

I did receive the A4 print, I think about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I'm in Australia but I didn't think it would take this long. zzzzz

Are there any other overseas people who still haven't received it? I might have to email Townsend Records.

Thanks!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 23 Apr 2010 05:12:00

Please do e-mail them. I contacted Townsend because I didn't receive my CD/DVD. They claim they sent it with the print, which I got about 4 days after it was shipped. I didn't get it. I asked for a replacement, and they told me they're out. Now they've sent me a lost-item claim form so they can replace my "lost" item. I ended up ordering another copy from eBay. Not a happy camper. Sorry to be so windy, but that's what I've been through. Other than us, has anyone else had this trouble? Staci

I ordered the CD/DVD-package (at least I thought, I was ordering it) on April 11th. Yesterday the package arrived (with print) - but unfortunately it was only the Highlights-CD. frown

Someone stated in this thread on April 11th, that Townsend had only the Highlights-CD available, no longer the CD/DVD-edition.
So I think I did not read carefully, when I was ordering at Townsend. I just had the banner here on the Ultravox-Homepage in mind (which is still there, advertising the CD/DVD-package! EDIT: now they have removed the ad)...
I'm mad about myself, as normally I do not order things without three times looking, if I'm ordering the right thing...

I think, I have to order again one of the few remaining copies of the CD/DVD-set from Amazon marketplace (but now for 28 Euro = 23,50 pounds).
Expensive, but especially after the excellent concert (I was at the Hannover-gig 2 days ago) I definitely need the DVD.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 23 Apr 2010 20:50:00

I got an e-mail from musicnonstop.com to say that on Monday they had 2 copies of the 3 disc set left and then during the afternoon they got 18 orders!!!

They are hoping to get additional stock back in from the USA (stock which went from the UK originally and now has to come back again!!) Dread to think of the carbon footprint cool

Anyway, in the meantime I ordered the 3 CD set from inandoutrecords through Amazon Market Place for about £30, and I have an e-mail to say its been despatched. They are still on Amazon as having stock as far as I know. They're located in Austria but I've got stuff from there before and they've always been OK.

So if musicnonstop comes good I'll end up with 3 copies so keep any eye on the 'Sales and Swaps' threads folks wink

I got that email too. I suspect that all of this week's orders came from people on this forum!

I ordinarily order from Townsend but also heard they were sold out, so this time i tried Juno records http://www.juno.co.uk/ They shipped to me in 4 days to the USA and the DVD set was only $27.99 USD with shipping included. I was very happy with them.
The quality was excellent, and i didn't look that stupid during my interview in the documentary either! LOL

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 18:12:00

Hi, I'm a new member but have been an Ultravox fan since about 1983 when I was 13. I remember being played the Vienna album by an older friend on his Akai hi-fi and from then on I was hooked. I've still got the Collection album on vinyl I bought from Woolworths in 1985 with the extra limited edition record containing 12" versions, somewhere in the loft!

Anyway, back on topic, I hadn't realised there was a live DVD until last week when I came across this forum, but by then it was too late to order one from the proper channels - everyone had sold out. However, I have found and bought one off ebay and I have had confirmation that it has been sent.

I sent them an e-mail asking them to absolutely confirm it was the 3-disc version (the one that contains the DVD - which is in their description on their ebay listing), but I've had no reply. It looks from the listing that they've sold a fair number of these, so I'm wondering if anyone knows on this forum if the order is likely to be genuine or whether I'll be disappointed!

Here is the ebay listing:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350343108597

Many thanks.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 18:45:00

From the link you've supplied, and the eBay auction details;- the track listings are exactly what I have on my 2CD + DVD set. You'll get the full Roundhouse gig, not the concise version, plus a fascinating documentary on the reformation of the band.

All I can say about eBay in general is be careful. Always look at (and read) the feedback history, how long the seller has been going, and use PAYPAL as a safer payment method. Good luck and I hope you enjoy it when you receive it.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 18:49:00

Hi pythonman. Love the 'Akai' detail. laugh I've missed the boat on the 3 disc version. I'm certainly not going to pay what's being asked for it now. I'm not really interested in the DVD but would like the additional tracks off the 2CD version. I'm just going to buy the single CD and then itunes/amazon the rest of the tracks myself.
Posted by: pythonman

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 27 Apr 2010 19:02:00

Yes, the Akai hi-fi - I'm not sure if it was the fantastic electronic sound of Vienna or the 24 band spectrum analyser that caught my attention more when I was 13!

I did pay by PayPal for the ebay item and the feedback rating of the supplier is pretty good, so here's hoping!

I'm an avid collector of surround sound music titles, live or studio, be it on DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD or Blu-Ray. So the fact that the Roundhouse DVD is listed as having DTS 5.1 makes me wait with keen anticipation!

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 29 Apr 2010 02:37:00

Ordered the CD/DVD set from Amazon.co.uk a couple weeks ago because Townsend and MNS were sold out and it wasn't listed on my usual North American sites. Amazon's been sending me apologetic weekly updates saying they're still trying to get it.

Meanwhile, Amazon.ca now claims to have the CD/DVD in stock:

"Product Details

* Audio CD (April 27 2010)
* Number of Discs: 3
* ASIN: B0039P5LKM

Deluxe three disc edition (two CDs + PAL/Region 0 DVD) featuring the entire 18 song performance plus a bonus DVD that also contains the full show and a documentary."

PAL? Surely some mistake. Anyway, they say it's in stock, they have a separate listing for the single CD version (as an import), and they're charging C$18.99. It's possible they've screwed up and this is actually a Canadian pressing of the CD only, but I ordered it. And I haven't cancelled the .co.uk order yet, just in case.

(Been an Ultravox fan for thirty years and they reunite when I'd been out of work for a year and couldn't afford to travel, and of course they didn't come here, and now I might lose out on the damn CD/DVD... yes, I'm a bit cranky about all this.)

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 29 Apr 2010 03:09:00

Steve, I found some codes online which converted my DVD player to a multi-region one and it was able to play PAL DVDs after that.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 30 Apr 2010 14:45:00

Well, my copy arrived today!

It's been a long day - very long!

We are moving house and after teaching a morning at school, I have been lifting, carrying, chucking and hauling from lunchtime till 11pm! I am aching and sore!!

A weird day, digging out old memories and even throwing a lot of old stuff out (mixed feelings!) and looking around the old house here seing it all bare. We actually live in the new house on Saturday.

Also, yesterday I achieved my Master of Arts in Music Education, so there's been a lot going on. I'm quite pleased about that, though haven't had time to celebrate it - or even think about it much!

So, at the end of a day that felt like a week, I unwrapped the cellophane on my lovely new copy of the disc - thanks musicnonstop.co.uk!! - and started with "Building Eden". It's been great to see the candid shots and revealing moments (also nice to glimpse Edinburgh, the city of my birth, and Newcastle, where I went to college in the '90s, and it led very nicely to the concert footage.

Loving it so far, it's almost mesmerizing. I feel - simultaneously - very young and very old. Like a kid again, loving these songs as much as always, feeling inspired and enraptured and also aware of how much time has passed! The sound, as many have said, is very true to the "old days", but at the same time sounds more modern and somehow more "mature". Amazing how UN-dated it is sounding!

I put my Telecaster down to put my thoughts down and, as I type, lament has just finished and One Small Day just started. So far I think I've been most impressed with We Stand Alone and I Remember, though Mr.X, I must say, sounded even better than the original.

Pardon my rambling, I think I must get some sleep!

Loving the DVD though.

God Bless.

NTSC / PAL is different from the region coding. Do not worry - it will play in the UK.
Posted by: clanduncan

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 30 Apr 2010 16:08:00

You won't need a multi-region player to play the disk, as it is set to 'Region 0', i.e. it will play anywhere in the world. Virtually all DVD players will play the disk then, and all modern TV's will accept an NTSC signal without any problems. You might only have problems if you have an older CRT (cathode ray tube) TV, that can't cope, and even then it's down to the electronics and not the tube itself. smile

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 01 May 2010 05:41:00

TAPIO - You were the centre of attention at the Hammersmith Voxgate (and probably anywhere you show up, hahahaha!!!). Great man!!!

DAVE - lmao

Must say I love Midge's expression of his emotional state(s). He therefore must have made a considerable internal process - good! And I particularly love his recognition of the fact of playing with UV again feels more right than what he has been doing ever since they went separate ways. I never made a secret of not exactly being into his solo stuff, I tried to listen to "Little Orphans" last year and it was - with all respect - impossible to make it until the end of the CD. No offence to anyone, ok, just a matter of personal taste. To me, MIDGE is a part of Ultravox. And the fact that he states that sacking Warren back then was wrong, that it was like cutting off an ARTERY, the fact of saying it in front of a camera lens makes him deserve all sympathies and respect again.

GOOD.

Now I have just been showing my musician flatmate a part of the documentary. To - again - realize that ARI cannot witness this with his own eyes, cannot feel the joy we all have been undergoing for the past year, that we cannot share these crucial moments with someone as impacting as he was, makes me terribly sad inside. Although it is important to always look ahead, it is impossible NOT to think about it. Especially when they play "Visions in Blue", his funeral song at Hietaniemi Hautausmaa, almost 5 years ago now... I miss him SO MUCH at the gigs! The Finn! frown

Got my Amazon.ca delivery today, and it is indeed the CD/DVD combo. The DVD looks and sounds wonderful, though I've only seen the first five or six songs so far.

FWIW, there's no "made in ___" info that I can see on the discs or packaging, but the Region O info on the DVD is in German. And yeah, NTSC. Amazon.ca has more in stock, for anyone still looking, but the price has gone up to C$25 since I ordered it.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 01 May 2010 23:04:00

Well, both musicnonstop.co.uk and inandoutrecords (Austria) via Amazon Marketplace came good, so as well as the Townsend copy I have 2 other copies of the 3 disc limited edition set....

.....even I don't need 3 copies nutjob

So a copy is up for sale, unopened still in the cellophane wrapper. This copy from inandoutrecords cost me £34.....I don't expect anyone to pay that.

So I thought if anyone is willing to pay £25 i'll donate £20 of that to Cerise and EV as a website running cost donation, the other £5 will cover postage and buy me a beer laugh

So if there's still anyone who hasn't got their copy and would like this one please e-mail me via EV and we'll get it sorted.

I've also posted this in the 'For Sale' thread

I still treasure the copy of the 7" single of Visions In Blue that Ari gave me, it's taken a greater meaning since he passed. It's a real shame he didn't have a chance to see our hopes and dreams turn into reality, same with Vinny...
Posted by: Chris C

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Sat, 01 May 2010 23:30:00

Yeah. Visions in Blue was the first live track that I saw Ultravox play in my satellite. It was the ORS show and a nice gent from my hometown gave me a copy of the recording. On that tape I discovered Simple Minds. New Gold Dream performed at the ORS. The other track Ultravox performed was I Remember. I thought at the time why on earth have they painted their keyboards grey.

I would have liked to have met Ari as he was all for Ultravox. He's greatly missed in this Forum. RIP. Your dream has now been realized.

Kevin - yes, it has sold out and has been deleted by EMI. However, a quantity went to America (I've no idea how many) for their May 5th release date (TODAY!) and copies WERE available for pre-sale at Amazon.com . However it's now showing as 'ships in 1-2 months', so I suspect it sold out on pre-sales.

one question,
i noticed while watching ultravox on dvd
why do every member have a notebook with songs that they are playing?
is it for back up. or is the notebook controlling their instruments?
the dts 5.1 sound is awesome!
Posted by: Dmitry

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 06 May 2010 18:09:00

DVD has reached Moscow at last yday making it a one full month of delivery from Europe to Europe !!

with so many tips on it in above comments, with which I would or would not agree, there is one thing that stroke me most - in a documentary, Midge says that Hammersmith was fully sold well BEFORE they even started to rehearse !!
what an adventure ! nervouslaugh

sound is alright BTW in both incarnations. Only negative remarks go to cameramen who change from object to object like amateurs, jumping and losing focus. evil

main menu is also weak, exactly how Russian videopirates would do, mixing two strong images ( head + horsesUV) is wrong. sad
Posted by: clanduncan

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 06 May 2010 18:22:00

Maxpunchy;- I'm no expert but if you watch the documentary it's reasonably clear the laptops are using software to control and time some of the different instrument/synth functions, I presume through midi connectivity, unless there is a better modern alternative. Chris Cross the bassist makes a particular point about it during the doc'. Other than that, as a set list?
Posted by: Wimek

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Mon, 10 May 2010 04:52:00

During the concert in Paradiso, Amsterdam, I couldn't see which equipment they are using. However, on the DVD I recognized the software: they use Apple's Mainstage. It's part of Apple's Logic Studio software (which I also use). Mainstage is an application made to perform on stage. I also noticed that Ultravox uses MIDI master keyboards from Novation and CME. This means that they use software synthesizers. The question I can't answer is: which software synths? Good chance they use digital recreations of synths they used in the 80's (OSCar, ARP or PPG Wave...)

There is an obvious connection through Conny Plank who produced Systems of Romance, Vienna and Rage In Eden. Conny Plank also produced La Düsseldorf's first album that has the self titled tracks that is very similar to Astradyne.

I seem to recall an interview with Ultravox where they said they liked the music that was happening in Germany at the time. On Billy's new web site you can look at photos taken at Conny Plank's place while they were recording Rage In Eden. Holger Czukay is in one of the photos.

Another obvious influence can be heard when you listen to 'Sonnenrad' by Michael Rother.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 13 May 2010 04:46:00

I ordered my copy of the Roundhouse 2CD+DVD at Townsend on 31 march 2010, that's now 6 weeks ago. But I am still waiting... And today I got a newsletter from Townsend about a 're-print' of the album and art-print. They say 'get it while you can'. But I already ordered and pay my copy 6 weeks ago. So I am very disappointed with Townsend, I will never place another order with them.

On 10 april 2010 I send them an e-mail, there were some problems with my bank transfer. That problem was cleared, but I got no reply from Townsend... Well, I send them another e-mail today, hoping they will reply this time and send me the CD+DVD.
Posted by: foxhusky

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Thu, 13 May 2010 23:49:00

Update: Townsend replied this morning. Problem was my bank did not transfer the complete amount of money. It is very expensive to transfer from euros to UK Pounds Sterling. So I solved the problem very simple now: just sending the money cash in an envelop. So... my copy of Return to Eden (and the new John Foxx CD/DVD Metatronic) is coming soon (I hope :rolleyes: )

Many years ago (circa 1984) Midge appeared on the Janice Long show on Radio 1 and played music by artists that had particularly influenced him and Ultravox. He chose Kraftwerk, Neu! and La Düsseldorf. I knew of Kraftwerk but had never heard of the other two. I loved both, bought some albums, and a whole new musical world was opened to me. I think Neu! are one of the great lost bands of all time.
I still have the interview somewhere on cassette, along with several others with the Midge and co. from that era. If they still play, I hope to digitise them one day and upload for others to enjoy.

That tape sounds pretty interesting.

I think I first heard about Neu! in the late '80s or early '90s, when they started getting name-dropped by Sonic Youth (Ciccone Youth's "Two Cool Rock Chicks Listening to Neu") and being mentioned in Stereolab reviews. Then a local record store got the late '90s bootleg CDs of the three main Neu! albums, which weren't available legally anywhere for a long time. I bought those and was blown away -- not least by how much my favourite Stereolab song owed to "Hallogallo." A friend heard them and was amazed that they were from the early '70s. Since then I've bought some solo Rother, Harmonia, La Dusseldorf, etc albums. Lots of great stuff there. Time to listen to some of them again soon, I think...

Finally, today the Roundhouse 2CD+DVD with A4 art-print arrived after exactly two months waiting. I ordered the package on March 31 at Townsend Records. There were some problems with the payment (it's not easy and expensive to pay Pounds when you live an Euro country), but that was finally solved.

All I have to do now is to frame the A4 art print and enjoy the DVD and CD's. smile

I received an e-mail from Townsend today:-


Ultravox
Return To Eden (Live At The Roundhouse) [Includes Exclusive A4 Print]
DVD £13.99

July 5, 2010

Ultravox return with their first live DVD and Townsend Records return with a new exclusive print. The print features the artwork cover and 4 images of the band. This is simply a must for all Ultravox fans

http://www.townsend-records.co.uk/artist.php?artist=Ultravox

Am I missing something or is this just the DVD of the Roundhouse gig (no CD) with a different print?

Well that's how I read it Mandy. I too don't understand it (for a start this "limited edition" ethos is looking a bit ropey by now IMO) and in any case I'm not a cash machine....

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 11 Jun 2010 04:24:00

Why not leave the "limited edition" cough cough ...... as it was and perhaps use the new print with the band images (although they dont look that spectacular) for the new EP?????? (the one we think might come out.)

Yip I read the email too
Well I thought it was a Limited Edition release but after reading the recent email from Townsend its made me think otherwise.
We ain't cash mashines still recovering from a recession and some of us are looking for work. If you think I'm going to buy it again just because the art work has changed your wrong. Your on cloud nine.

I would like to meet the person or persons who make these marketing decisions.
This CD/DVD should have been Limited as you could have put out a physical DVD release of the Roundhouse.

So concentrate more on the music side of the business and less of the mickey mouse gimmicks.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 11 Jun 2010 11:34:00

I must admit I ignored the email flyer when it came through as I have the DVD+CD. I would only care if it was a limited edition if I didn't actually have it!!
When I clicked the link and read the Townsend web, they aren't claiming this DVD to be limited (the previous set of DVD+CD was limited). This DVD only product is on sale for 13.99.
There is also a number of the DVD+CD sets available at 17.99 (these are the left overs from the re-press I guess), and there is a CD only version, at 11.99. Three products, and I'm guessing aimed at 3 different groups. Fans would love to have the DVD+CD set, but some may just want the CD or DVD. The price of the last two would indicate they could make some money from those sales, but as there are still DVD+CD sets available, I doubt if many will buy them, right?
Certainly, no one is forcing anyone to buy them.

Marketing does "interesting" things in order to sell merchandise, luckily though, the target audience are sensible adults!
Posted by: Desolate Angel

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Fri, 11 Jun 2010 17:49:00

Unfortunately, this kind of 'marketing' fails to hold the attention of it's target audience for long. Its all whitewash. I am now starting to question what is a limited edition when I see those words mentioned in connection with any merch. I recall when most people rushed out to buy the CD/DVD with the "limited" run of artwork "limited" to 500 copies. There were then additional copies of that artwork printed. Notice a pattern here? And now its changed!

On the subject of the DVD itself - and I'm gonna come across as a real moaner here, so sorry if you don't agree with me - I wasn't overly impressed with some of the edit. I find the sequence of distance shots quite repetitive - but that's not my big issue.

I have a real gripe with the Thin Wall edit - it could have been so much better - I know that because I saw a stunning edit on YouTube - it was stamped up as "Warrior Vision" - given its an audience cam its quite good. An excellent zoom in on Billy's fingers during the violin solo (why oh why would you not focus on that on any solo???) - well the DVD edit didn't - instead, mostly, we get the headstock of the violin???? I found this hugely irritating! The best friggin violin solo!!!!!!! I would LOVE to talk to the person who shot that and ask why they think that's a good edit.

Also........... right at the end of the song you will note the shot 'behind' Midge as he raises his hand. Now the shot is from the front on the YouTube vid, its excellent and captures the 'final' moment so much better - his face and the full force of his arm as he strikes the guitar for the last time. Sometimes I wonder how people actually get jobs.........

Given all that - I am happy it does exist and that I have it! smile

Your passion is undeniable! So intense.
For me though, the ONLY relevance of a "Limited Edition" is whether I have it or not. I have the DVD and CD so I am unquestionably happy! Indeed, I seem to have saved 10-15 pounds on the deal compared to buying separately and received a decent print in the bargain. If other people have a chance to get the same item, I'm more than delighted. I didn't buy to speculate that the value would rise - it won't. I didn't buy because it was limited, I bought because I wanted it.

As for the quality? I'm happy with it as it is. I know there are are people out there who managed to get incredible shots of the shows (more than one person, and I am also in awe of their efforts), but DVD production is a difficult thing, and I believe the DVD is good value for money. Note that I didn't say perfect, but I don't recall any perfect DVD of a live show to date, especially of one that I have seen personally.

I hope I don't appear to be attacking anyone here - far from it - but I do believe that we have had a decent shot as fans at getting stuff early and with reasonable value. I certainly fall in to the "content" category for now and was so encouraged by your own comments (Ms Desolate Angel) that you were also happy to own it! It really does rock!!!

I've got some lovely footage of TTW at The Roundhouse - I was in the tier on the side of Chris (for a change, usually on Billy's side) and he's doing a very nice little soft shoe shuffle during it.... laugh

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 22 Jun 2010 19:18:00

The track listing for the 'New' DVD is now on Play.com.

It appears to be the full 18 track set list. At the end of the track list it has the following:-

19. Building Eden Reformation Documentary
The Voice
Non Music Work
Astradyne
Visions In Blue
Vienna

So we know that 19 is the documentary but does anyone know what the rest of it is?

More to the point should we be putting a pre-order in as it's previously unreleased stuff??

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 22 Jun 2010 20:11:00

I think the tracks are from the rehearsals before the RTEI tour, including "non music work" (organizing the tour etc.) So to say an extended "building eden" documentary.

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Tue, 22 Jun 2010 20:15:00

So worth having then? Good job I've put the pre-order in - better safe than sorry! (on Amazon - it's cheaper)

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 23 Jun 2010 01:05:00

I'm just wondering if this is worth checking out before buying - more info required.

The track listing at the end could refer to the fact that during the documentary they did play snippets of Visions in Blue, Astradyne, The Voice and Vienna when they were showing various snippets of the rehearsals and preparations and experimentation with sounds - I'm just wondering if it is these cuts that the list refers to.....

It's just the same DVD content. Checked other sites
The only difference its PAL and Region 2

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 23 Jun 2010 18:11:00

The DVD has been released due to popular demand, and Townsend have done a new free print to give it a bit of extra value.

Of the three products, the only one I can't understand is the 'Highlights' disc - why on earth anyone would buy it, I don't know. IMO, they should have released the full gig as an audio 2CD set only, the DVD only and a 2CD+DVD limited edition pack. But that's just me! smile

As far as we're aware, it's exactly the same content and still Region 0 / NTSC - but we have asked EMI to clarify both points and will post here as soon as we have an answer.

I think we all agree on that one, I did purchase the highlights CD only to complete the discography.

Would it be so that the record company can switch to a cheap (for them and for the punters), single CD at some point in the future without going through the hassle of having to edit it all over again?

Not necessarily, no. It's something that bands can often do and gives people a degree of choice on what they can buy. Admittedly, for diehards it's inconceivable they wouldn't want to purchase anything but the full show, but some people (casuals we'll call them for the sake of this conversation) may only want something to remind them of the concert without having to sit through and listen to stuff they either don't know or would just skip over if included. Given the discussions we all had recently on what songs we would each individually have left out or can't get on with in the UV catalogue, it's understandable why a stand alone highlights disc may tempt casuals to buy rather than the full show.

It's also not something that's limited to the RTE release. The (relatively) recent shows that I know of released by the Rolling Stones and The Police have had similar multiple release formats of what is essentially the same product.

Hope this adds to the conversation.

Regards,


Paul

Re: Roundhouse DVD - Wed, 23 Jun 2010 22:09:00

Good point, Paul. smile

OK, here's the reply from EMI:

1.) The content on the latest DVD release is exactly the same as what is featured on the DVD from the 2CD/DVD release

2.) Like the DVD which featured in the 2CD/DVD album, this DVD is NTSC Region 0 (I've requested this be changed on Amazon-thank you for flagging)

3.) We've requested for the tracklist to be edited on Play and Amazon. These should be amended ASAP

So that confirms it - the DVD content and format are exactly the same as in the 2CD+DVD set, just released in a DVD-only format for those who didn't manage to get the set, or prefer to buy at a cheaper price, etc etc.

I'll be buying one, because my CDs are stored in the loft once ripped, so I like my DVDs in a DVD box that I can put on the shelf with the others. I'm happy! wink
