Just to update you on next month’s special limited edition ‘On An Island’ CD, which will come with a fantastic bonus live DVD.
As well as the six songs from the AOL Sessions and ‘Astronomy Domine’ from Abbey Road, the DVD will also have ‘Take A Breath’ from London’s Royal Albert Hall – a taster for David’s live concert DVD, due out early next year.
The downside is that the release date for this limited edition CD/DVD combo has been pushed back to 28 November around the world. It will hopefully still be out in Europe on 20 November, as originally planned.
Packaging will be different from the original album release. In Europe, it will be contained in the original ‘book’ case, but with a dark red spine cloth instead of the regular black one. There will be silver foil block lettering on the back stating that it is a limited edition.
That’s the EMI version.
The Sony version (for the rest of the world) will have the DVD housed in a cardboard wallet, featuring one of Polly’s tour photographs. This will be shrink-wrapped to the original ‘book’ style CD.
Sound is PCM Stereo, not 5.1 Surround Sound.
Please be reminded that this bonus DVD has no impact upon the release of David’s forthcoming concert DVD, which documents the ‘On An Island’ tour. That’s still to come and will be available next year.
