The DVD will be nice.. as for the debate, as they say, you cant please all of the people all of time, just some people some of the time.
It does not matter what is released, you are always going to get people that are not happy... Strange to think it was not that long ago, that most people would have been happy happy to have seen anything released... As ever peeps get spoilt...

Like most the CD probably won't be played too often, but the DVD will be a great addition.

Youtube doesn't do those videos any justice at all, does it?

Wow! This sounds great, I must order one. Many, many songs....and I for one, will use the cd more, since I still haven't gotten my dvd player...(birthday was in February.....)  This is definitely something to have though.

Reminds me of the old Shel Silverstein poem:

Sour Face Ann
With your chin in your hand
Won't you ever be pleased?

You used to complain
That you had no fur coat
And now you complain
of the fleas!  



I say - hooray for Messages!  


~ Lorraine

Last cup of tea - though I could sit here forever
Passing the life and times back and forth
Across the table with you, my ideal friend.

I like that  

Any way, how much as a bootleg would the video of red frame white light be worth

The first thing that struck me about that was the resemblance to Morrissey's Black-Eyed Susan.  

I think the DVD element will be the singular thing that OMD die-hards will be keen on. Combining a CD and DVD does make a lot of sense though.

Getting all those promo videos in one place is really a cool thing. OMD have had such a mixed bag when it comes to videos, but there are a few gems in there that bear repeat viewings.

Ive been away a while, but just heard the great news!

Will be getting both too, especially looking forward to the long awaited dvd.

I find it unlikely theres anything to complain about, if its anything like the quality of the A+M and More dvd, thats fine.
