Yello - "Live In Berlin" Blu Ray 4.1 DTS HD MA

View attachment 40234

Best known for the song "Oh Yeah" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off - this Swiss Electro Pop duo has been around for over 35 years and with one or two exceptions has never performed live. In 2017 they reunited with a full band (vocalists. percussion, guitars, horns, etc) at the Kraftwerk in Berlin - a decommissioned power station - a massive and dramatic venue. Stunning visually with an excellent and active 4.1 live surround mix. Here's a little sample;

Well, as I've mentioned elsewhere my neighbors are 20 years my senior & 1st generation Germans. When I became married & moved into my house they had two daughters in high school. Time marched on & U became a doctor, married & had a family in Boston. But when the Berlin Wall fell, the other one, K, went to live in Berlin with her husband happily ever after, at least for a good while.

Last December 2020 due to significant parental health issues, K came home for a bit. Making the usual courtesy talk, despite COVID but taking precautions I asked her & husband to come over & enjoy a concert from Berlin. Now she is accomplished at the flute, her dad was quite the pianist, her sister played the violin, & her mom was, I guess the family manager. Very classical oriented family. The performance was Yello- Live in Berlin. Both of them had seen other concerts at the Kraftwerk Berlin. They seemed to really love the Bassment performance, saying multiple time "I've heard that song!"

Damn after all these years chasing audio/video performance & always wanting to share it, this was the best.

Lovely story, SW. Yes, Great video and audio does have the benefit of tearing down OLD walls and replacing them with Floral Treasles!

A surprise addition to the collection: my folks gave me a sealed copy of the Abbey Road 50th Anniversary box, for my birthday. :D Now I just need the elusive (+ expensive 💰) White Album box.....

Alice Cooper DETROIT STORIES [DVD~V DTS 4.1 and Alice's Brand New album on RBCD]. A SPECTACULAR 90 minute concert with Alice in fine form but those expecting a DISCRETE mix ....... NAY. Also available in a limited edition box set with the DVD replaced with a BD~V, 3 stickers and an XL Tee Shirt. IMO, the sonics/video may be better on the BD~V but seriously, folks, there's NOTHING coming out of the rears. Still a great deal at AmazonUS' asking price of $14.99 for the DVD/RBCD set!

My latest concert Blu-Ray is Dream Theater's Distant Memories-Live In London. Great live show featuring cuts from their latest album, Distance Over Time, & a complete performance of Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory.

Just arrived from Deutschland: Yello, Point and Tears for Fears, The Seeds of Love.

An observation related to the perennial kvetching about cracked and broken cases with Dutton-Vocalion's international shipping: I know that transatlantic shipping rates now vary wildly, even capriciously, because of the pandemic, privatization, reduced flights (and cargo space), and changes to various international postal conventions. But I still don't understand how JPC does it so cheaply. Shipping to the US for these two items was a little over 6 Euros, and the shipment arrived in just 10 days.

When the package was delivered, though, I was a little fearful, as the box had been punctured and slightly caved in on one end, then repaired with some plastic strapping. But my fears were for naught: the package was shoebox-sized, and the goods inside were still surrounded with at least two inches of (biodegradable) packing peanuts on all sides. Moreover, the TFF set was also encased in its own dual-layered sturdy cardboard box. No chance of a cracked case there...
