This movie has been done for some time and I am told it is available on DVD in Canada (region 1, right?). Will it ever get a US release? Isn't it from a lot of US Tours? Gah! I did watch some of a friend's "Barelaked Nadies" DVD this past weekend and it was great. Lots of content and it sounds wonderful but the few live tracks on it make me wish more for a live DVD. Any words? Or should I just get the Canadian version and be done with it?


Thanks,

Phil

Phil,

It was distributed in the US by The Shooting Gallery exclusively to either BB or Hollywood Video, I don't remember which, so there's not a lot of copies -- and I don't even know if they even made any DVDs, or only VHS.

In any case, Shooting Gallery have since gone out of business, so who knows if it'll show up again.

So, personally, I'd definitely pick up the Canadian version.

Is it definitely on DVD in Canada? A search of HMV's site only turned up the "Barelaked Nadies" disc and the "Too Little Too Late" DVD single.

It is on DVD in Australia, for sure, though. A pair of reviews:

As far as I know, the only DVD of Barenaked in America is an R2 release (was not aware of the AU version). I've been tempted for many months to import it from Amzaon.co.uk.

Like Patrick, I picked up a pre-viewed copy at Blockbuster a while back.

Because of that, I've been holding out for an R1 release, which thus far hasn't come. I'd snap that up in a hurry if was ever released.

You might check out the official site, www.bnlmusic.com, as well as the fan message boards there to see if anyone has any more info.

Cheers,

Dave C.

I hope this comes out on DVD soon. I saw Kevin last week, he's a really nice guy.
