To clarify, I got my DVD-r set at Amazon (used a gift card). If you're trying for a pressed version of BB Vol. 1 at MU, give it a shot.:)

It is my assumption that the DVD-Rs would be a purplish or bluish color on the playing side of the DVD's (Mine are not, which makes me think they are pressed.). Do you know if that is the case, Russ? CHEERS!

I wonder how Volume One is selling? I'm curious if WB could have released them as standard DVD sets (not that I'm complaining in this case, with an early 'pressed' copy!)..

As it is labelled on the package as DVD-R, it is my assumption that Warner Archive will be reverting to that format at some point (If thay haven't already done so!). Hopefully, we'll hear an announcement from WA regarding the Bowery Boys Volume 2 set soon! CHEERS!

Yes, DVD-Rs are purplish/bluish colored on their playable sides. :)

Thank you, Russ! I had read somewhere that DVD-Rs can sometimes have a normal colored playable surface, but I wouldn't think that it would be all that common! At any rate, I've encountered no compatibility issues regarding playback of THE BOWERY BOYS Volume 1 on any of my DVD players or PC, which is my number one concern! CHEERS!

If THE BOWERY BOYS VOLUME 2 is to see release before the end of this month, I should think Warner Archive will be making an announcement soon! Tomorrow, perhaps? CHEERS!

Volume 2 is being released this Tuesday!  From their press release

THE BOWERY BOYS COLLECTION, VOLUME TWO (1946-55): Slip, Sach and the rest of the crew are back for another heaping selection of hilarity that delivers up a full decade of Bowery brou-ha-has. Charter the Boys’ course from their crime and Saturday-serial flavored comedy beginnings alongside fellow Dead Enders Bobby Jordan and Gabe Dell to full on Stoogian slapstick insanity, as Horace Debussy Jones, Jr. starts to take center stage. Contains some of the Boys’ most beloved outings including Spook Busters, Private Eyes and perhaps their most famous outing, The Bowery Boys Meet the Monsters. These films have been remastered from the best available 35mm film elements. Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.

 

Includes: Spook Busters (1946) Hard Boiled Mahoney (1947) Bowery Buckaroos (1947) Smuggler’s Cove (1948) Ghost Chasers (1951) Let’s Go Navy! (1951) Hold That Line (1952) Loose in London (1953) Clipped Wings (1953) Private Eyes (1953) The Bowery Boys Meet the Monsters (1954) High Society (1955)

The last three were composed for 1.85:1.

 

Are they widescreen in this release?

 

PRIVATE EYES, which started filming on 7/25/53 was the first widescreen for the Boys.

The Bowery Boys Meet the Monsters is widescreen courtesy of their Youtube previewHigh Society is pretty much a given in this case, but we'll have to wait and see on Private Eyes.

It's nice to hear the BB second volume has been issued, though a bit more heads up from Warner Archive would have been helpful. I will now have to wait till at least the end of the month to order my copy!

 

I've missed receiving my Home Theater Forum email alerts, while I've been waiting for tech support to try to recover my user name (I'm currently listed as Guest__*) AND post count, as they both unfortunately got lost with HTF's changeover. At the time, I was told they could only guarantee that my post count would be recovered. It has now been a week since I've contacted them, and I still haven't received any news! Am very frustrated by this regurgitatin' development, LOL!

 

CHEERS!

According to Movies Unlimited, The Bowery Boys, Vol. 2 is available for preorder at $44.95 in advance of an April 19 release date.

 

I would have edited my above post to reflect that except apparently, with my current status as a Guest member, I CAN'T! AARRGGHH!!!

 

CHEERS!

Amazing that a year ago many thought we would never see The Bowery Boys on DVD.

 

Today, we find ourselves overwhelmed and there are still more to come!

I'm delighted to see that SPOOK BUSTERS is included in volume 2, as this is one of my favorite BB entries! 

 

CHEERS!
