    I was told by a Best Buy blue shirt that on 11/4 D2's DVD is hitting the streets. Can anyone confirm this? Details of the DVD?

    Well, nevermind. Google found my answer. Seems the blue shirt was right, 11/4. Info here at Capitol Records

    Looks to be a nicely loaded 2-disk set.

    Too bad it's not complete. [​IMG]

    I hate it when companies don't do music DVDs right. There's no reason for them to not include all of the band's Capitol videos, but sure enough there are quite a few that are missing. (For the record, missing videos from the first two albums include "Lonely in Your Nightmare", "Careless Memories", "My Own Way", "Night Boat".) Would it have killed them to add these 15 minutes?

    It's not as if there will be another opportunity to include these more obscure videos elsewhere, so it really sucks that they will essentially be lost forever now.

    I used to own an RCA CED player and one of my favorite discs was the Duran Duran video album. I don't see why they didn't include all those videos in addition to just the "hits".

    This reminds me of when Warner ported the Prince "Hits" VHS to DVD without adding any of the missing videos that there was surely space for on the DVD. It is really frustrating for me when video compilations are not complete.

    Anybody know if this will be remastered in 5.1 audio?

    The only video that really interests me is "A View To A Kill".
    Now if this video has the original 007 title video playing along with the song, then I'd buy the whole thing just for that. But if it is the Music Video featuring the Eiffel Tower, then I'm not interested.

    It's a great line up of videos, but it is sad that the songs you listed Jodee will not be included. Those are some great songs.

    Duran has so many underground (so to speak) songs that are just as good if not better than some of their most popular work.

    I am looking very forward to this dvd, but do wish more was included. Who know's, maybe they'll be and easter-egg or two.

    Jeff, the original music video for A View to a kill is the Effiel tower one. Thats what will be on the DVD. Are you talking about the title sequence played during the actual movie? If so, well buy the movie (It also includes the music video as an extra. [​IMG] )

    well Im still looking forward to it...but I dont understand why they dont put all the videos on the dvd. That always pisses me off.....its not like they have to keep it the same as a video tape version (like laser discs always seemed to do)

    Lets hope stores stock up better on this than the Pat Benatar dvd, that was ridiculous , having to go to tons of stores, then i found the lone copy at suncoast.Then again Duran Duran has a bigger fanbase, so it would be stupid if they dont have more copies everywhere.I hope the sound on the dvd is at least as good as the duran duran greatest remastered cd , or this is such a wasted oppurtunity.

    Hmmmmmm. Kinda disappointing news. "Night Boat" and "Lonely In Your Nightmare" are essential DD videos, even though they weren't singles. "Meet El Presidente" and "Do You Believe In Shame?" WERE singles, and they're not included either! I guess something's better than nothing, though, and there are lots of extras... Damn it all, I'm sure I'll get it. But I'm a bit cranky over it.

    I read that a couple of early Human League videos where omitted from the forthcoming DVD collection due to "rights issue's". I guess some of the rare Duran Duran videos have the same problem? If they had access to the videos I'd imagine they would put them on the DVD?

    I'm happy to hear it will be a 2-channel mix only. With music like this, I don't want 5.1.

    Craig, that vary well could be the reason why some of the videos will not be included.

    Although it's not the 'perfect' DVD video collection, it's good enough to warrent a purchase, it's been a long time coming.

    Here is a response direct from EMI (via DuranDuran.com) regarding the content on the Duran Duran Greatest DVD:

    Anybody who doesn't think this band is back should've been in Golden Gate park yesterday.

    My brother was there and he said they were awesome. I missed it though. I will catch them when they swing back this way.
