    DVDFile reported, on October 31st, that Warner was releasing three Bjork dvds in mid-November: Bjork: Live at Shepherd's Bush, Bjork: Live In Cambridge and Bjork: Unplugged.

    I can't find them anywhere. I've checked all the usual places, including having the local mom-and-pop call their supplier. Zip.

    Does anyone know what the story is with these?

    According to the Bjork website, these disks are to be Region free PAL disks. They were supposed to street 11/19/2001, but I suspect I haven't seen 'em since I live in Region One. Oh well.
    There is a "Hidden Place" DVD single available, though.

    Region-free PAL? I guess that means I can't play them on my NTSC set, even though the discs are region-free?

    Uh, there is a great DVD-Audio edition of "Vespertine", with 5.1 Dolby Digital and 5.1 DVD-A

    While you are waiting for the above, Bjork - Volumen is a DVD collection of all her music videos (at the time of release, with the sole exception of Alarm Call), which IMHO are musically and visually the most creative art of the 90's.

    I agree with Ken - VOLUMEN is excellent, though I'd love to have seen what Criterion might have done with it (considering their amazing Beasties release). While all Bjork's videos are great (except that one related to that movie which shall remain un-named by me), I especially like the ones she did with Michel Gondry. Truly brilliant stuff.

    I haven't heard the DVD audio disc, but the 5.1 remixes on the two recent DVD singles ("Hidden Place" and "Pagan Poetry") are quite superb, creating a completely immersive soundstage.

    Has the "Pagan Poetry" video even been seen in the US yet? I imagine that, because of the nudity, it's not high on MTV's playlist!

    JulianK - If I can slightly sidetrack this thread a moment, how big a deal is that Pagan Poetry video? I bought the (bizarrely 12-rated) Massive Attack video collection the other week and went through a decidedly uncomfortable 5 minutes with their 'Be Thankful For What You've Got' video with my girlfriend. I've got all of Bjork's other videos (well, Volumen, All Is Full Of Love and Hidden Place), so I'd probably have bought this immediately had I know it was out...

    Ian,
    You can check out the QuickTime "Pagan Poetry" here .
    So, like, what's up with the "Be Thankful For What You've Got" video?
    I also agree that Volumen is swell, but I've had it for a couple of years. Apparently you can buy a Japanese version of that collection that also includes the "All Is Full Of Love" and "Alarm Call" videos. As far as I know that is the only way to get the "Alarm Call" video on DVD. But it is very expensive, at least at Amazon.com.

    Re: Be Thankful...

    Well, there is a girl walking into a backstage area, with 'Safe From Harm' on her walkman. She has a quick chat with her fellow performers, then it cuts to the club itself. Where she proceeds to mime to the song while removing absolutely everything. It was a bit of a double-take moment, really. Its apparently shot (according to the DVD blurb) in Raymond Revue Bar, an infamous Soho club. I've been past it a few times, as its on a direct path from Oxford Street HMV to my favorite import DVD shop, and it looks as dodgy as it sounds!

    I know things have relaxed at the BBFC recently, but I never expected this sort of thing to be considered suitable for 12 year-olds...
