A Note To Brisbane Record Stores
Today I went in search of the deluxe version of this very DVD. Every store I entered, be it Sanity, Virgin or any number of stores both large and small, gave me vacant stares when I asked about this DVD. In Sanity, in EVERY Sanity store I went to the staffers, nubile young things with funny looking hair, disinterested looks and piercings, all asked who this band were and then denied any knowledge of both the band or the DVD. One lad even insisted that Sanity don't stock anything by Led Zeppelin. I didn't have the heart to tell him to turn around and pass me a copy of Mothership, of which he had a shelf full in eye sight.
So, record stores, hiring cute young girls with large breasts and virile young men with that dopey look that apparently the young girls like might get the youth of the day in store, but it'd not go astray to hire some people who know something about music that's more than two years old. I did manage to convince one dolt that U2's 3 disc re-release of The Joshua Tree was their new album. Once it arrives he said he'll be taking it home as he's a huge U2 fan and loves getting their new albums. A small victory, but hollow really.
Oh, and none of the shops I visited had either the new Song Remains The Same DVD or the Joshua Tree Anniversary Edition. Oh well, there's always places on-line to get them, so much for supporting your local store. I'd love to support them, if only they knew what I was asking for.
