I'm glad some extended interviews are on there - some people on there had little screen time and had to have had some cracking stories to tell.

And more studio behind the scenes. Always welcome.

The only thing I'm interested in is extra footage of the recording process - I feel like we really got screwed over in the "making of" department. Should have been 50/50 In my opinion...

Really excited for this even though I have hbo and can watch them whenever already. I can't wait for the bonus material. Count me in!

Right!! I really hoped they were gonna show more. I am hoping the DVD is packed with that. I was hoping for more of the Wasting light recordings sessions to come out as well when Back and Forth came out, but that didn't happen.

Fingers crossed on this one!

Has anyone heard if there is gonna be any extras with the preorder of the DVD? Anything signed maybe, posters etc?


Also, I am really hoping for more of the sessions and recording as extras, it would be really cool if they also put all the shows they played for each city in the Dvd as well. If anyone has more info, that would be great.

So the Amazon links have been floating around twitter.

http://www.amazon.com/Foo-Fighters-S...9Z42J3DXN5HHBW

3 discs on BR, 4 on DVD! Should be jam packed full of content. Bargain price as well.

654 minutes, so 8 episodes are approx 480 minutes, that is 174 minutes of extras. Just under three hours.

Shipping.

But yeah, I'd expect some sort of bundles, probably CD/DVD, CD/BR, T-Shirt/DVD, T-Shirt/BR, that sort of thing.

I wasn't so keen on the t-shirt with the album, so will have to see what comes with this one.

I'm really hopeful that they include better versions of the songs on each episode. If they include a lossless stereo and 5.1 track and don't master them as harshly as the CD they should be a nice upgrade over that. I'm hopeful because that happened with Sound City, 'From Can To Can't' had much better sound quality on the Blu-Ray, not brickwall mastered.

Would think a lithograph? Probably not signed and hopefully not another wooden box!

What time, do you think, this pre-order will go live?

Any thoughts?

The album release pre order went live just before 5pm uk time, but it will probably pop up before then i'd imagine.

Pre order is live, but it's all digital.

https://sonichighways.vhx.tv/buy?cou...=7834739969111

If nothing else shows up, this is dissapointing.

I'll just order the blu-ray from my local store then.

Thoughts?

Any idea if the digital release has the same extras as the DVD one?

Not a clue. I think so, but the info on this thing is anything but complete.

They announced it and then they did not even make a proper mention on their front page of the site.

I also ordered the normal series this way when it just came out, and it seems that I have acces to the extras when they are unlocked.

All and all not what we expected me thinks
