Re: Somewhere DVD

There is definately room for improvement yes, even though the NTSC DVD is again superior to the PAL release. Would be great if they would release these older DVDs as an SD bluray, meaning that the video quality will not improve but the sound can be upgraded tot lossless audio. Tina Turner and Bee Ge...

No you're not. Did not like the song, and hated the video. Still do.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

It’s not legal to collect ‘taxes’ from a customer and then pocket the money yourself though, at least not in the EU. I am not allowed to send out an invoice that states “incl. Same here. But you can charge the same final price, with VAT only itemised on the UK receipts. There is no obligation to ch...

It’s not legal to collect ‘taxes’ from a customer and then pocket the money yourself though, at least not in the EU. I am not allowed to send out an invoice that states “incl. BTW” (the Dutch VAT) to a customer as I am exempt from VAT for my teaching job. VAT/BTW should not even be mentioned (not ev...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Looks like the PSB store indeed only ships from the UK and does not include customs fees in its price (like amazon does) so that will be a costly affair for EU fans due to additional 21% VAT plus import fees (which in the Netherlands will be €12.50 but in Belgium even €22 per shipment). Hope they do...

Re: PSB Vinyl: A Question

Fundamental does have a typo though on the inner sleeve, the I is missing (just says NTEGRAL), probably not the case on the original sleeve

Re: PSB Vinyl: A Question

The ones I have come with HQ glossy full colour inner sleeves, not sure whether they’re exactly the same as the originals as I only purchased the ones I did not have on vinyl (Bilingual, Nightlife, Release and Fundamental).

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I think Spain was the first or second country to create a law for gay marriage. That was actually The Netherlands, almost 20 years ago. Correct. Spain had already legalized same-sex civil unions at the time but the Netherlands was the first country to open up marriage for same-sex couples. There is...

Re: Somewhere DVD

Each to its own of course, but I really appreciate physical product. A download with a JPG of the cover is just not the same for me. I like the needle drop of vinyl, opening a CD player's tray to put an album or CD single in it or watch something on TV from a physical disc that I own and cannot be ...

Re: Somewhere DVD

I do completely get that. I’ve just been getting back into vinyl and enjoying it for all the reasons you set out, so I’m not completely digital!! Just ordered the NTSC DVD. Thanks for the link. :up: Depending on your country you can opt for WOWHD.nl, WOWHD.com etc. Then you can see the prices in yo...
