we haven't ruled out the usb idea as yet though my feeling right now is that it would make it too expensive.

I gotta say, I'm kinda pissed that the CD and DVD won't include these extra songs found on the vinyl, especially "Scotland's Shame" and "The Precipice", which are the newest album's best tracks!

Damn it.

The trailer makes it look very cool, still, but why not just include the extra tracks as bonuses on the DVD (which can hold 3 hours of stuff) and on another CD?

Okay, it just dawned on me that "Burning" and "Special Moves" are two different releases. I thought "Burning" was the name of the DVD format. Okay, cool. So, if I want both the "Burning" DVD and the "Special Moves" CD and DVD (which is a totally different set of performances from "Burning"), then I'm best off getting the deluxe box set, which comes with vinyls, even though I don't own a vinyl player. This is all very complex. Would it be cheaper to just buy the "Burning" DVD separately? Is that an option? Which has traditional packaging; I hate digipak!

"Burning" is a 50-minute live film, being released alngside "Special Moves", an audio document of the same shows. All formats include both releases i.e. if you buy Special Moves, you'll also get Burning on DVD.
