Yeah, February is right around the corner &, so far, no sign of the Vegas
Job DVD being released in the States.  No one has it listed for pre-order,

No, it's only available as a Region 2 in the U.K.  But people keep say-
ing that if you have a recently-made, region-free DVD player, the Vegas
Job DVD plays fine.

I'll have to check to see if my DVD player is region-free.  It's only
about a year old.

I'm not sure why this hasn't been released in the States yet.  The whole
thing is kinda shady anyways.  I don't think The Who Group wanted it re-
leased but Pixelon had the rights & they sold everything when they went

Perhaps the U.S. release has been blocked somehow.  I don't know.
