This REMASTERED DVD is sourced directly from the original high quality LaserDiscs to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it transferred from the long since deleted LaserDiscs from OVER TWENTY FOUR years ago.

Background information: This remastered compilation is comprised of two independent LaserDisc releases. The first music video collection “Straight Up” was released in both VHS and LaserDisc formats. The VHS format was released in America in 1989 along with Japan the same year and Spain in 1990 along with Malaysia following later on in the year of 2000. The LaserDisc was exclusively released in 1989 in Japan only. This second music video collection “Captivated The Video Collection ’92” was released in both VHS and LaserDisc formats. The VHS formats were released in the US as well as Canada along with simultaneous releases in the PAL VHS format for Sweden, Australia, the UK and Malaysia in 2000. The LaserDisc was exclusively released in the USA and Japan only. Please note that Japanese subtitles are included only in the interview/talking portions of these two releases, the rest plays without any subtitles.

Some audiophiles and sound purists argue that unless the remastering process includes completely “lossless” compression of audio that no matter how it may be converted/processed to surround sound or better, it still is compressed audio thus producing some say a more audibly muddled sound. This is due to the lessening of the dynamic range between the loudest and quietest parts of the audio signal thus producing some distortion and a clipping audio effect. The DVD offered here are from the original LaserDiscs released back in 1989 and 1992. Because of the large 12 inch size of the LaserDisc format it can easily support the amount of physical space required to successfully playback large uncompressed sound. This Remastered DVD features the original completely uncompressed audio recordings allowing the original true recorded mix of each single to come alive as it was originally intended to be heard in optimum sound quality. This original mix featured with completely uncompressed audio is exclusively preserved here and available in it’s original intended state of production for the very first time on THIS DELUXE EDITION DVD.
