    I am glad I ordered the CD from Target and it is great to finally have that mystery solved. However, this is now too late to cancel my order from cdjapan as they have already processed payment. Oh well... the japan CD will be a collector's item.

    The audio on the PMP video clip is not very good and sounds very dynamically compressed. Lets not judge the CD's audio on this clip.

    As the drama builds, here is the "unofficial" tote board for whom in this forum will submit the first review:

    Simon KC1950 3:2
    Newvillefan 2:1
    Chris Mills 5:1

    Longshot - Brian from Australia 10:1. Hoping for a "Silky Sullivan" like charge down the back stretch...He should have a tremendous head start seeing that Dec 7th will come to him first.

    Why no US/Canada entries? Because you don't have a prayer! :laugh:

    It would be interesting to know why he decided to cut “those good old dreams”.

    Same, which is why I will be waiting until the evening when I have some alone time to listen and also so I can enjoy it without interruptions. If it wasn't for that, I'd be the first to have a review written.

    Meanwhile the UK Times has this, lengthy and insightful interview with Richard. I’d like to do that PhD on their impact, thanks...
