    I bought a cheap Laser Blu-Player from Big W that plays Multi Region Discs.

    Looks like from the rear pic in discogs that its region A, B and C blu-ray - so you wont have to do anything

    That's exactly what I've got. But I think you still have to do things to get the region change menu up for non-regional discs. So far I've never had to look up exactly the procedure as it seems to play everything I have!

    Ah cool. Thanks. I'd be rubbish at fiddling with hidden region change menus.

    I never had to change the settings. It has played all disc I’ve tried.

    Me too fortunately. I've got two of these Laser players now. One in lounge, and the other in the bedroom. Annoyingly I couldn't buy the slightly older one with separate component outputs, both mine have HDMI only, which is annoying if you want to put the audio through different amp and speakers. I actually solved the problem and bought a HDMI splitter box off Amazon that gives you both the source HDMI and additional component audio as output. Works like a dream!!! :)

    The digital downloads of the Whitesnake 2023 mix are only DR6.

    That makes it unlistenable to me, though others may like it.

    Here’s the instructions for my Laser player.
    I’ve got a Cambridge player where the only thing required to change regions is to press either 1 or 2 on the remote.
    I’ve only occasionally had to change regions on my Laser, as many American discs are region-free, despite often claiming otherwise on the packaging!

    It’s worth ordering even if it ticks over to TOOS, assuming the price holds.
    I ordered 1 when it was out of stock last May ($27) and it shipped in August.

    Record collecting has become very weird over the past few years. I keep coming across internet stories about "How to build your record collection". I have been buying records for nearly 50 years and have never considered that I was "building a record collection"

    Record collecting should be very simple:
    A. When you can afford it, buy records (or CDs) you want to listen to.
    B. If you find records you don't like or already have, and can sell them for a profit, buy them so....
    C. You can afford to buy records you want to listen to

    Never pay over $40 for a single album
    Coloured vinyl is a gimmick
    If you don't like it don't buy it.
    It's a mass produced consumer product, it's not like there's only one copy in Australia
    If you'd bought the 7" of Some Kind of Bliss instead of Elton's Diana single (which came out on the same day) your investment would have netted you over $100 rather than the 3 cents Goodbye England's Rose is worth.

    If you changed a few of the words in these "How To Build Your Record Collection" stories, you would have a "How To Build Your Share Portfolio" story.

    Most of the discussion is on the rarity and investment value of records - nothing about the pleasure of playing your favorite records at volume 11

    Awesome set - I have it on CD but wanted the vinyl box set edition as well due to having a Debbie Harry track not on the CD set.

    Usually well over $200. Bargain price now of $83 + $21 shipping. UK store.

    Wasn’t free shipping for me…that would have been nice.
    Now $200…but hopefully it will go back down again.

    That's a great collection. I have the original vinyl set, but just gave away the large format CD version. I've got the CD set you've listed and it's a slightly updated version than the 12" box set. They originally won grammys for design and packaging. Also nice to see Amazon get their facts right regarding Bowies roots in Bromley (rather than frequently quoted as Brixton!!!)

    Byron Bay Blues Fest. must be struggling to sell tickets, I seem to be getting emails from them every day. They have just added Barnesy to the line up - not quite enough to get me there!

    Marc - is there any chance that you may have a slight Bowie fixation?:pineapple:
