Kate Bush This Woman's Visual Works: TV Appearances DVD Boys Next DoorKate Bush This Woman's Visual Works: Promotional & Live DVD Boys Next DoorThe Who At Giants Stadium 1989 DVD Wardour Label

The Boys Next Door DVD Label have lately established themselves as the kings of the compilation.  The label will close out 2006 by putting their stamp on  2 volumes of video from the queen of british pop avant guarde, KATE BUSH....titled "This Woman's Visual Works..."  the collections are broken up by Television Appearances and Promotional Videos and Live.  Fans of KATE BUSH shouldn't even hesitate as BND have proven their attention to detail in gathering the best of their subjects' video nuggets with their catolog featuring DAVID BOWIE and THE CLASH that are highly recommended... the 2 new DVDs document pretty much any and all video clips in said categories from 1978 through 2002.  Also coming from the Wardour DVD Series this month is THE WHO "At Giants Stadium 1989" which features nearly 3 hours of live WHO from their July 2nd, 1989 show from East Rutherford, New Jersey in superb proshot quality.

The big news from Empress Valley this week is the announcement of a brand new 1975 LED ZEPPELIN soundboard that shall only be identified by the title, "Days Confused", a 3CD set from a yet to be identified venue/date...stay tuned for more on that...also coming from the label over the next 2 weeks will be their "Memphis 1970" 2CD set and of course the much anticipated "Live At The Whiskey A Go-Go!" DVD-Audio, providing collectors with what will be a brand new show for their personal other ZEPPELIN bootleg note...the recently released "Thank God It's Saturday" 3CD set from the Scorpio Label will also have a seemingly pointless and superfluous bonus CDR included that contains the incredibly common March 25th, 1971 BBC Paris Theater tape.
