Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Re: Somewhere DVD

There is definately room for improvement yes, even though the NTSC DVD is again superior to the PAL release. Would be great if they would release thrse older DVDs as an SD bluray, meaning that the video quality will not improve but the sound can be upgraded tot lossless audio. Tina Turner and Bee G...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Personally, I think DJ Culture is one of their weakest singles, but I'm odd like that.
