How much further can you get, then New Zealand, and I found a way. I am not a big fan of the internet and spend as little time as possible on it, but it is a great way to keep in contact with mindlike people.

Bestoftherest8301, well put my friend regarding imports and how to ge hold of them?... if you do your homework fans by now should be able to look at www for info on just about all you need to know on collecting import's.Of course fans will need a way of buying imports no matter where you are in the world and again it's a case of doing some homework,ask about,email fellow fans you will be surprised just how easy it at the end of the day. This set has already dropped through my door today and it does look as good as the other 2 cd/book combo's so again full mark's to Venus..... a job well done.

Bootlegs (or imports) are as available to US fans as they are to European fans. I don't know how you can argue that for some reason they are not available to US fans. They are no rarer for us than they are for you - we search the internet and email friends and contacts (I do believe the same facilities are available to the US public too). We don't walk into high street shops and malls to buy them you know!. I don't buy the (more) expensive argument either. We have to pay postage if we buy from the States, also european and world wide rates too. You have to accept the fact if it's rare you'll have to pay (rules of supply and demand). It's more of a 'can't be bothered attitude'. The trouble with the US public is they expect everything to be supplied on their doorstep or at least within the boundaries of the USA. I'll not be crying in my beer over. In fact the better for us if you guys can't be bothered. Sorry, but I can't accept the argument and sorry, no sympathies either. If you want them, you can get them, it just takes a bit of effort, determination and yep a little bit of cash too.

For the European fans, bootleg CD's are as readily available as milk at the market. For the US fans, they're rare, expensive, and very hard to find. So repeat or not, I welcome another opportunity to have this show.

Sorry..your dreams won`t come true..at least FTD can`t fullfil them..Ernst don`t have any of those..

Well said Matthias and Rob V, if you have the bootleg classic Cut ém down to size, believe me, you don't need this. Ernst has a lot of unreleased soundboards in his possession, we have to wait for these to be released. Yes, and maybe the soundboards from the late Bruce the Goose have some surprises, I surely believe so. Wichita dec 27th 76 ? Another soundboard from the nov 71 or a soundboard from the june 73 tour? Would be very nice. Let's dream on...

Even though I'll be buying this, I reckon the days of import label's giving us "new" soundboards are pretty much over. It's up to FTD alone from now. Hopefully, Sony/BMG with Ernst's help, can try to get the soundboards that were in Bruce Jackson's possession.

Mastered directly from Cut 'Em Down To Size, like done with Return Of A Prodigy?

I'm really pleased with the first two book/CD combos. I've got my order in on this one.

For all those who wondered where the book/cd combo has gone? well here is the next volume in this top draw production, expect the usual excellent package and as stated for those who missed this show first time around well here's your chance to get a re-vamped release.Also no Venus have not ran out of the 'Graceland' sessions and have more future volumes in the pipeline... again top class from a real established label.
