    I'm not sure if this is old news or I didn't notice it before, but Amazon has a list of $29.99 for AHDN and $20.99 is their price. No date listed yet, but is this a hint it is finally coming soon?

    I remember hearing that June 3rd was the date for the UK release, so I was hoping June 4th we would get it....

    I think it has been like that for a long, long time. I actually ordered this title waaaaaaaaaaay back when it was supposed to come out in March 2001...I ordered in January. I used one of their old, great $10 coupons so I have not cancelled my order. It is still sitting there waiting for the disc to be released and shipped. But I want my good deal!!!

    Is this new release any different than the original DVD?
    I own the original so if it's the same I'd like to know. [​IMG]

    I am still worried that AHDN will be pushed back to 2004 so the can slap a 40th Anniversary sticker on it.

    Am I the only one that wishes they (the Beatles) would do an SE of Help!? It's the movie that got me hooked on the Beatles in the first place.

    The new release is supposed to be a completely new special edition. This would include a new transfer from the restored print that was theatrically re-released last year. I have also heard it would include the original remastered mono track, a new 5.1 mix, and also a "scream" track which would allow people to hear what it was like to see this in a theater at the height of Beatlemania. And perhaps documentaries, commentaries, etc.

    I preordered AHDN from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. When I looked for an expected delivery date, it was listed as January, 2003. I emailed them and the response was that the release date kept being changed and that the studio was just saying before 2009 now, but that Amazon expected it to be released much sooner, but had no firm grip on as to when.

    In addition to the new A Hard Day's Night, I wish it were possible someway somehow to release The Compleat Beatles to DVD. This is the single best documentary I've ever seen of the greatest band of all time.

    And what about The Beatles Anthology? Any approximate idea when this may appear?

    The other obvious issue with the stereo music tracks on the earlier MPI AHDN DVD was that it omitted some foley effects taking place during the musical numbers . Apparently, they did not have an isolated effects track to mix with the stereo album tracks.
