Can anybody tell me what is shown on the DVD which is part of the LIve & Life box? It does not show on the verglas store and Arena world. Is it a concert registration or parts of it or is only the 'life' of the groupmembers behind the stage? :D

Moonloop

It's a kind of visual collage of live snippets, interviews & general 'on the road' footage. Makes for an entertaining hour or so  ;D . When it came out, there wasn't much difference in price between the 2CD set and the 2CD+DVD set so it makes sense to get the ltd one anyway  ;D

Cheers..!!

No. There's a current official DVD entitled "Caught in the Act - Live in Poland 2003" and a couple (not sure of the number as I don't have them) DVDs/Videos which are/were exclusive to the fan club.

;D

I was going to post you a link to the relevant discography but the Cage has been redesigned & I currently don't have access (no password yet).  >:(

Maybe someone else can  ???

I am a member from the Cage family since I think 1999 and yesterday I ordered the caught in the act from the vergals store. It seems to be on it's way now. Thank you all for your informatoin.!! 8) :-X :D ;D

Gracchus

This is a good DVD , but the sound , erf , too low... I Think a re-mastered version of Caught In The Act with a very good sound like in the Live And Life Albums will rocks...

joep

I just received the Caught in the act DVD...but I can't seem the get any colours on my televisionscreen..IS it in black and white???? Do not suppose it is... Can anybody help me here...

joep

Forget my previous message the DVD is colorfull when running it on my PC..so it must be something to do with my DVD player that I use with my televisionset...

A mate of mine had the same problem with a "Camel" DVD. The problem turned out to be the TV set, not the DVD player. The disc was region "0" but (as it was a US release) was an NTSC version. Not sure how that compares with the Arena one - have to check my copy - sounds like a similar issue though  :(

NTSC sadly seems to eb the way that DVDs are going these days, and if your disk plays in Black and White rather than colour the problem is almost certainly due to the fact your TV set is not compatable with this standard - it's unlikely to be a problem with your DVD player.

I have the same problem with the Arena and Pendragon DVDs but as my TV is not that old I'm just going to have to suffer for a few years until the time is right for an upgrade - right now I cannot justify the expense :(

Moonloop

Yeah - technology is moving far too quickly (my Dad's TV doesn't have fast-text on it for example). Very difficult to spend a lot of money these days in any TV/DVD/Hi-Fi area as you don't know how many years you're going to get out of your purchase.

Almost better to buy a cheap product more often than a 'top drawer' one and then find it's obsolete or out of date in a couple of years  :(

About the black & white thing, there might be a possibility to have the DVD player translate the signals. You need to tell the player that you've got a pal tv, and it might help you. I did it once for a friend of mine with an old tv set. But your player needs to be a bit well equipped in the menu section to pull this off.

I have ordered the Live & Life album today. Very curious. Delivery time: 4 working days.

Friday I was watching the Life DVD. It is very good material, also a good sound (beautiful yellow glasses, Rob  :D). Such a shame that the concert is interrupted by little interviews  ::). Just saw the tracklist of the 'Caught in the Act' DVD on the Arena website, also of the Contagion tour. Are these recordings from the same gig? And is it worth buying that DVD, because I read several stories in this topic that the sound quality is not that good.

Live & Life was the only Aren release that I have encountered so far in the more common music stores in The Netherlands. It's a pity that there aren't more. In one speciality store near my place they, had a few realeases more, but not all. Maybe we should gather signatures and send them to the store owners  :P

It's really strange... The only HMV music stores that have an Arena section are those near to the cities!

Poole and Bournemouth didn't have an Arena Section at HMV, :(  however Southampton does, and HMV on Oxford Street, London has an Arena section! :)

The same applies to the other music stores, too!

I've visited a few HMVs when a was in London last year with school. And I think those have got far more CDs than most dutch music stores.

I never bother checking to be honest because I've got them all  ;D  ;)
