Cool Yule / Yule Log [DVD] [2009] [Region 1] [US I&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Bette Midler
Another reviewer on this page felt mislead by the DVD cover. Let's see; it is called The Yule Log Edition, there is an actual picture of the burning yule log on the cover, and next to that it says: Watch classic holiday scenes while listening to Cool Yule by Bette Midler. And that is precisely what you get! A great Christmas album performed by The Divine Miss M, while you can choose between 3 Christmas themed "filmed wallpapers" which all look great. Cheesy, sure, but that's allowed around Christmas, right? So pop in the DVD, choose between the burning fire, the cozy cottage or the snowy cabin, and presto: instant holiday spirit! Musically, there are no great surprises, but the album… Read more

So, eventhough 30 GBP isn't much for a great sounding pair of headphones, I am going with another model this time, simply because I don't want to keep replacing them every 1 - 1,5… Read more

Having been a Yazoo collector for years, this box set sadly doesn't feature any tracks or remixes that I don't already own on cd. The biggest omission to me is the wonderful "Get Set" they recorded for a BBC show. With all the BBC performances featured on In Your Room, I was extremely disappointed to see that Get Set had not been included.

Having said that, I was very excited about hearing both Yazoo albums remixed in 5.1 stereo. These surround versions are very different in some places to the stereo mixes, to a point where whole notes are missing, parts are mixed into the background to being almost in-audible, and other parts that were background noises before, now become lead… Read more
