Shame 'Acrobat' isn't the very raw 'Drag You Down' version from the AB outtakes. Love the 'Montgomery's Visit' guitar on TTTYAATW. That melodic guitar riff always sounded good to me but it was just an instrumental on the AB outtakes. UV sounds very 'Stone Roses' to me. LIB comes across as some kind of Kraftwerk/Pink Floyd bastard offspring...quite scary and very menacing.

Noticed all the DVD's are NTSC format...so hope you all have compatible players here in the UK?
NTSC DVD's will play fine in the UK....as long as they're region free (which I'm sure they would be).

"Baby" Mysterious Ways sounds excellent. Really like the backing vocals and the new chorus arrangement

Is there a mod around to merge the two new threads?

Edit: Wow, that was like magic?

Is there a mod around to give me a million dollars?

Ooops, yes, of course. All this excitement has me confused!

Strangely, the two physical copies I've seen of this online (the Anton Corbijn video from the Netherlands) and this photo album https://picasaweb.google.com/1133820...EditionBoxset# are both from Europe, and yet the boxes clearly have the "FBI Warning" that only appears on US releases. Is it possible all of the box sets are being produced in the US and then exported?

Could be anything. I guess it's possible that all the early copies sent out to people like Corbijn and McCormick were the US editions. Who knows...I wouldn't read too much into it.

Are you worried the FBI might be looking for you?

I hope they do a Baby version of Pop and Zooropa. I kind of wish they had done it with ever re-release. And while I like the new B-sides I would have rather heard raw vocals than 2011 Bono but it's not a huge gripe.

Yes, mine has the FBI warning on it too (UK version)...but there was a sticker on the shrink wrap saying "CD's made in Germany.' It was a small white sticker with black writing? Many, if not all Blurays have the FBI warning at the start of the disc. It seems to be an international piracy warning these days.

Who is the woman singing on 'Everybody Loves A Winner'?

Have you listened to Zooropa yet? Does it sound like they've adjusted the levels as they did with AB? The dead giveaway is that it should be louder than the disc you already own.

My personal guess is that they pumped up the volume on ALL these discs, not just AB, to bring them in line w/contemporary releases.

From what I've read elsewhere it's Maria McKee.
