    Just wondering if anyone knows when the CD or DVD is being released of Brass in Concert? Also is there any idea on the track listings yet?

    Just so I know whether to tell my folks if theyll be able to see my mirror-smashing mug on the tellybox or not to hold their breath!

    The DVD will be released in time for sale at the Regionals in March.
    There will not be a CD.
    The track list is just about finalised and I'll post it when it is ready.

    27 pieces so got to be at least 60mins

    Price on WoB Website is 19.95 (hope that's not classed as blatant advertising)

    Multi-regional - Yes it's not just the Yorkshire bands on there;)

    Two discs

    You mean you haven't actually looked on the WoB site?

    Sorry, Region 2 only.
    However, we are looking into the possibility of doing Region 1 discs for our North American friends but we would need to be sure that we could at least cover the cost of doing a separate production run.

    Just out of interest, most people in the UK seem to buy 'multi-region' players while those in North America stick with Region 1. Is this because of lack of availability of 'multi-region' players in North America or because for most North Americans Region 1 only will suffice?

    I have my computer DVD set on region 1 and the one connected to my TV on region 2, and the other discs like the European's made by World of Brass work fine on my computer. Don't hold me to it if you order one and it doesn't work though.............

    I think they haven't been that readily available...otherwise that would defeat the purpose of being regionalised, no?

    The newer DVD players may be multiregional though as I have been able to play a few brass band DVDs from the UK on them.

    From a consumer point of view, I think most North American consumers aren't even aware that there are different formats, they buy their DVD players at Best Buy, Circuit City or Wal-Mart and their DVDs at the mass outlets as well, so everything works without question, until they start to order from elsewhere in the world. I'm guessing the cheapest of the cheap DVD players are all region 1.... So, it's not really a conscious decision at all for probably 99% of North Americans (or at least US.)

    Believe it or not, a lot of the cheaper DVD players are multiregion by default - it actually costs money to make them region specific ;)

    I've never seen a multi-region DVD player in either Canada or the U.S. I can play both formats on my computer but not on our good DVD player.

    Interestingly enough, I bought a very cheap DVD player (from Future Shop) a couple of years ago and while it is not multi-region it also plays dvd's in the PAL format. The only problem is I can't leave it hooked up 'cause my wife likes the multi-deck feature on the good one :(
