It's an invitation across the nation...
The Reality DualDisc we first told you about last year (10.26.2003 NEWS: REALITY TOUR EDITION BONUS DISC AND US 5:1 HYBRID DISC) has now received a nation-wide release in the US, a week later than our original projected release date of October 26th. (08.18.04 NEWS: REALITY DUAL DISC GETS NATION-WIDE RELEASE IN USA)
Initially limited to a Seattle and Boston release only, dealers made a quick buck selling over-priced copies on eBay to the rest of the world. This week's release seems to have killed those particular auctions dead, now that the disc is available at all the usual online stores for as little as $14.99.
Those of you that already have this DualDisc will know that it contains the full Reality album in normal stereo on the CD side and a 5.1 multichannel surround mix by Tony Visconti (which he talked about in that original news item) on the DVD side. The DVD side also contains the full-length version of Steven Lippman's excellent Reality film.
You can view a wonderfully stylish trailer for the film on Steven's site by clicking on the image above. Once you enter the site, go to MUSIC SHORT FILMS, and the David Bowie REALITY section.
Steven had this to say about the recent Reality screenings: "The Woodstock Film Festival screenings went very well. Audience reaction was great -- if not a bit shaken (which was great.) Peter Gabriel was in attendance (repping one of the other films on the bill) and I know he was quite impressed."
Go get it, kidz.
