How can one tell the difference between the "new" and "old" On Broadway boxes? I think I bought the set from the BMG club, but dont recall which version it is.

Yeah, that speech had us busting up here in the office. That and how: "As you know, we're constantly changing tactics. And that requires constant assessment" = "Stay the course."

I wish the Dems could win this thing due to their own resourcefullness rather than have the Right shoot themselves in the face... but I'll take a win any way we can get it.

A lot of people dislike the remastered Columbia release because of the sound, prefering instead the "import" versions (Definitive, Avid, etc.) that "steal" the noisy Schaap version but no-noise out some of the surface noise. Haven't heard the import versions to compare, but this ...

Christ, that's heavy-handed moderating. :roll: I barely post there anymore, and when i do it's mostly in the Visual Arts section. I like some of the mods, but others can apparently be real jerks. I say "apparently" because I've never actually had any run-ins with them, though I was once ac...

Call me crazy, but I really dig Street Legal and I have a very soft spot for Budokan as well. Believe it or not, but Budokan and GH2 were the first two Dylan albums I ever bought, back in the late 70s, chosen simply because they had the greatest number of songs that i recognized. :lol: Hey, one's go...

God Bless the Onion. The weird thing about the whole "political correctness" issue re: X-mas is that I've never known (or even heard of directly) a single person who actually objects to the secular celebration of the holiday. It seems that it's the politicians and/or store owners who repeatedly jump...

Good review - I agree with much of it, though I am enjoying the early discs a bit more than you. I definitely agree that C/P is way over-rated and that the "importance" of the new box is largely due to this material simply not being available for so long. Aside from the obvious hits ("The Twist," et...

Nothing wrong with embryo adoption, but I wonder how many of these folk so concerned about gays possibly adopting their embryos give one goddamn about the hundreds of thousands of kids - already born, unquestionably with souls - who are stuck in county foster care programs all around the country.
