Region 2 Reality Dual Disc out now  

This one slipped out quietly. Last Monday, the UK Region 2 CD/DVD Reality DualDisc was released. Bugger! I paid through the nose for an imported Region 1! So how many copies of this bloody album has everyone got now?

Re: Region 2 Reality Dual Disc out now new [re: diamondogz74]  

I actually got the lead from Q magazine which was advertising DualDisc, with 20 titles now available. Among them was Reality. Now they wouldn't be advertising Region 1 DVD's in a UK mag like this.

I believe this is it - release date 26th September 2005:

Amazon

HMV

What exactly is on the DualDisk? I have been interested in it for quite some time, is this the same edition which has the DVD with promos on there etc. ??

Re: Region 2 Reality Dual Disc out now new [re: jump93]  

It has the CD on one side, and DVD on the other. The DVD has the album in 5.1 (i think!), photo gallery, all the lyrics, discography and the Reality film - which is the main source of interest.

The New Killer Star DVD EPK is sort of culled from this, but the film itself is much more expansive, with mini-videos and mimed performance of some of the songs. Its quite bizarre in places. Its intersperced with a digital Bowie posing questions to the "real" Bowie, very fractured and cut up - almost a piece of art in itself.

Re: Region 2 Reality Dual Disc out now new [re: Nature_Boy]  

I don't think this is a region 2 release sadly Scott, tell you why...

Bowienet has not mentioned it, Ok I know their news is a tad s-l-o-w, but I'm sure they would have mentioned this release, they are Reality bonkers on that site.

On amazon the disc has a 4 to 6 weeks waiting time and I clicked on one of the market place sellers and it said this...

Comments: - Please note, that this is an import item. Dispatch of this item will be 2 - 4 weeks.

Quite why it has the release date of Audio CD (September 26, 2005) I have NO idea

It is a must really Kati because there is some excellent footage on the DVD side along with lots of great video clips, plus the album is in 5.1 stereo mix and you can hear Reality blasting out from all five sound sources, the cheapest place to buy online is the site Alan posted, It only costs £10.99

Re: Region 2 Reality Dual Disc out now new [re: Nature_Boy]  

Not sure how accurate the region code descriptions on the dual discs are. The ones I've got are all purchased from overseas and as the DVD side is actually a DVD-A, they have no region coding. I haven't got the Reality one yet, but I assume it's the same and the sites selling them just have their standard wording on them.

Well that's not region coding, just a problem with NTSC. I suppose you're using a standard DVD player. It's well worth the money to upgrade to a DVDa/SACD player. You shouldn't have any problems playing any disc from anywhere, and the sound quality is brilliant.

The DVD side of the Dualdisc is DVD Video rather than Audio. It has the album on there in 5.1, but it plays off a DVD-Video menu. Hence it is Region affected - i don't believe it would play in just an audio DVD-A/SACD player. The Reality SACD would, however

So? Should we forget about the tour now? Well, you can forget it, but I can't. That tour was the first and the second time I saw Bowie live, so I'll never forget it. And even though the Reality tour -DVD probably isn't the best Bowie live DVD, I'll still watch it again and again, because it reminds me of my own experience, even though the songs aren't exactly the same they were on the concerts I went to.

I've now had the chance to view the Reality film on the Dualdisc and it is FAB! to see Bowie interviewing himself via a monitor is wonderful, the songs/videos are very well presented and YES he really does dig in the earth with his bare hands, plus hearing the album in the 5.1 stereo mix has made appreciate just how good the album Reality really is, the DVD side has much to offer and there's a cd-rom section too, It is a must.

In reply to:

Happy viewing/listening when you do get it.


But please, for the love of god, don't wait until then to let us know how you feel about it! I would hate to miss out on any of the myriad possibilities for entertaining posts here. You can start by letting us know whether or not you've heard of the DualDisc edition of Reality; in fact, it might even be worth posting if you haven't heard of the DualDisc format!

At this point, when someone has explained to you what DualDisc means, and that Reality is available in said format, let us know what you think of this bit of news. Here it might be informative if you were to ask for links to places on the internet where you might buy it (hint: anywhere).

Once you've gotten the links, be sure to individually thank each member who helped you out with a separate post, as well as soliciting their opinions about certain tracks on the DualDisc. You might also need to be reminded what the format is all about, so better make a new post about that!

Once you've located the DualDisc online and ordered it, please cut and paste the entire receipt from your purchase so that all may enjoy reading it. If, instead of ordering online, you buy it from a shop, please try to scan the paper receipts, or at least describe what they look like.

When your DualDisc Reality arrives, be certain to document the packaging it was shipped in, including details such as the consistency of the packing peanuts and the color of the packing slip. Be sure to inquire to specific individuals whether their Amazon package was sealed with two layers of tape or just the one.

Most importantly, be sure to keep us all informed about any further sightings you might have of the Reality DualDisc. Even if - or should that be "especially if" - you live a good 50 miles from the nearest TWer, anytime you can tell us where you saw it in a store (and of course, the cost) would be a great help and a fascinating read.

Someday you'll thank me for all this scary love

I know a few people who paid by paypal, so they have had their money for approx 10 months and are now refunding it. That is just disgusting behaviour. The fact they even sent emails out a few months ago saying they would honour the original price of £8.95 GBP and now they reneged on it is atrocious. The prices are now £11.99 for Live and £12.99 for Stage the last time I looked. They can stuff them at those prices, I shall wait until they're in a sale or something now. I am perfectly happy with the cd releases of both albums and only ordered the DVDa's because they were so cheap at the time of order.

Last week I sent you an email complaining that you had reneged on a 10 month old pre-order for David Bowie's David Live and Stage DVD-A's at the price first quoted of £8.95. I am disgusted to see that I have had no reply to my complaints. Not even the standard letter that was sent to others'. I think you, as a company, have acted poorly over this and will never buy from you again. So, to the question "Have we done something wrong?", the heading of your latest newsletter, the answer is, Yes you have, you have annoyed a lot of Bowie fans by firstly advertising these discs at that price, then by sending out emails saying that the price would be honoured when they were released, then by cancelling the orders, even to people who you have taken paypal payments of 10 months ago, then by ignorring the complaints, or sending out standard letters full of platitudes and finally for having the gall to ask what you have done wrong.


I hope this clears up any confusion why a load of Bowie fans will NEVER buy from you again.

Good email Alan, they've done it for themselves by being this bloody minded, I wouldn't buy off them out of principal now


I got this email off them today... bleeding brass necks on this company.

This is to let you know that we have fixed a problem that caused our order checkout process to fail - this was affecting a small number of orders placed over the last few days.

If you have placed an order recently and received a confirmation email your order WILL have been received OK - there is no need to place the order again.

If you have experienced a problem placing an order please do the following:

- sign in to your 101cd account, click on the "My 101 CD" link from our home page
- review your orders, click on "My Orders" under the "My Account" section
- any orders not received will show a status of "This Order is Incomplete/Unsent"
- complete unsent orders, click on the "Click Here To Complete This Order" link underneath the order
- then click on the "Complete" button to send your order to us.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

We have also increased our server capacity as we had experienced a slow down earlier in the week due to very high traffic. You should now find that browsing our site and ordering is much quicker.

Re: DVD-As at 101 CD new [re: diamondogz74]  

Now I'm happy I didn't order my Reality dualdisk from them... I just never got around to ordering it. Well, anyway, I have ordered it now, from the Amazon. Actually I did it kind of accidentally. Ever since FastChanges went on about how great the new Depeche Mode album was, I'd been meaning to get it. Then I noticed the ones sold here were all copy controlled. Then I heard, in Brittain they weren't, so as I was placing the order for that, I also finally ordered the dual disk. I already have a confirmation it's been sent, and I'm expecting to get it next week

Have you already ordered it elsewhere?

But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals, sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten

almost a piece of art in itself.


wow, that's the coolest thing i saw bowie do since... eh... the concert in berlin! this is awesome - why are such gems released just for small markets? This could have been a nice bundle with the album and the live edition footage.

Come and buy my tanks
