This is a welcome release, as it will be good to have an official DVD of a complete concert - or, as Bennyboy has already pointed out, a complete concert minus "I've Got a Little Secret" (which apparently came between "Chelsea Hotel"and "Waiting For the Miracle"). It will be good to have the "Old Ideas" songs live - especially "Show Me the Place" and "Different Sides" which we didn't get in London and Brighton. It will also be good to have Sharon Robinson's wonderful live version of "Alexandra Leaving". As has been noted, everyone will have their personal favourite omissions. Mine is "Born in Chains" which I haven't heard live, and which I would like to have with the first verse sung instead of spoken. I see that twenty of the thirty songs included are also on "Live in London", but there's an inevitability to that.

This DVD sets a new benchmark in live concert recording prices - £33 on Amazon, which is roughly the same as my favourite Leonard live album "Live Songs" cost in shillings! That said, it's quite reasonable when considering the £100 + that Dylan is charging for his 6 CD "Basement Tapes" set. I will probably wait till after Christmas when the price will no doubt be slashed in the sales. I tend to only play live DVDs in full a couple of times anyway, since I prefer to keep the live experience special. However, it will be great to have the DVD for posterity, assuming that I outlive Leonard's touring years. :)

Same here - 32/6 if I remember rightly John! But, to put it in context, my annual student grant was less then than my monthly pension is now ....

Actually, Amazon UK has 3 listings for Live in Dublin, all of them wrong as they are all listed as audio CDs.

- A 3 CD set for £22.09
- A 4 CD set for £24.83
- A 4 CD set for £33.11

I have pre-ordered the middle price on the assumption this is the DVD and written to Amazon to get their clarification. I expect to get gobbledygook and platitudes back in return but there is plenty of time to cancel and re-order elsewhere at a cheaper price if necessary.

I got the expected rubbish answer from Amazon. They said they had to check the stock in their fulfillment warehouse to correct the listings! Wonder which part of pre-order now, released on 1 December Amazon Customer Services didn't understand?!

Aaaargh .......

As you imply , quite inadequate descriptions at this stage. For a start , the '4 cds ' presumably means 3 cds and a dvd or blu ray .Plausibly the more expensive one is blu ray rather than DVD , but i'll await clarification and look at how the prices stabilise before ordering . A blu ray , on a big full HD television ,attached to a good sound system should be an excellent experience :D

And in case you haven't seen it on the other thread:

Amazon US shows the set as 3 cds and a dvd, but no where yet does the availability of bluray get mentioned. I have asked twice for help (phone and chat) and am told they have no indication of bluray option, but will refer it up the line. Hopefully will be able to pre-order the right set soon!

I too am waiting to order the set with the BluRay. I assume it will get posted one of these days. I am in no rush but am excited to have this.
I am hoping that PBS will pick this up the way they did with "Live in London'. They still show it once in awhile and people mention seeing Leonard singing on TV. I hope soon they will show 'Live in Dublin'!

Jarkko and I spoke with Robert this morning. He confirmed that this is what will be available with Live In Dublin:

MP3 (downloads)
3 CD set
3CD/DVD set
DVD
3CD/Blu-Ray set
Blu-Ray

SONY has been made aware of the confusing and incomplete offerings on the various Amazon sites worldwide. Each Amazon site has to be programmed separately by a different person for each country. SONY is contacting the individuals responsible for the Amazon programming in each country and working on having the listings corrected. This could take up to two weeks but most sites should be corrected much sooner.

Please be patient and please continue to try the Amazon site in your country to pre-order the product that you want.
