I don't want to cause a stampede, but I've just seen another three copies of this DVD in HMV, 150 Oxford Street, London W1 (east of Oxford Circus), price £16. They are in the Irish Folk section in the basement. There are also several copies of both versions of the CD, but my advice, and Roger's, is buy the DVD! i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif
My 'Treasure' must have arrived on the Monday (I wasn't here). With it HMV's cheapo 'throw-in' but each packaged separately and each posted separately. Ordered with them was 'Celtic Woman' which hasn't turned up yet. So, perhaps shortage of stock (hopefully encouraging, but regtretfully not necessarily so) may well be the cause. All packages arer being delivered free, so HMV do seem to be 'okay'. Hopefully, that reassures. I ordered mid-week last week.
Peter, my "Treasure" album was also packaged separately though it was in the same order than my Celtic Woman DVD. Hopefully it will turn out soon! HMV is great so it's probably just a matter of time before they get it. We have to be patient !
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
Naturally, I bought this DVD for Hayley. I don't mean I gave to her, I mean I bought it because of her involvement!
We were given to understand that the her becoming part of CW would increase her fanbase in the US and, hopefully, increase CW's popularity in the UK. Well, part of that is working. Each time I watch it, I enjoy all the individual performances more. They all have truly wonderful voices yet they are very different (from one another), but they blend together so well. If they needed another member, I cannot believe there is any singer in the world who would suit them better than Hayley.
I just have to mention one highlight other than Hayley. Lisa singing 'Caledonia' is out of this world.

While I'm basing it on my own truck stop survey, I have to believe that this part of the equation is working as well. Nearly everyone I've spoken to in Los Angeles who knows about Hayley - and the number increases daily - knows about her because of Celtic Woman. They don't always know her by name - "oh, you mean the new one"..."the really pretty one"..."the one who sang Scarborough Fair"... etc., etc. She's starting to make an imprint and the tour can only help. It's only a start, but this time I think it's the right one.
Superb that the hoped for 'States effect' is beginning to work! I must email my Plymouth friend, unless we have someone watching out for the 'Boston Globe' report? And my DVD has arrived from HMV. The only trouble is I'm between two properties at the moment, gradually moving out of my 'squat' back into mine while still looking after it. I haven't had a chance to read other's views, yet, let alone hear and create my own views, let alone write them and post them!
