Scorcese's "The Blues"

Anyone know when this DVD box set will be available in regular stores? As far as I've seen it's available via the PBS online store and Amazon (at least the canadian website)...I was hoping it'll be in BestBuy or something, because it's supposedly released today...

I saw the first one which was very good. I only saw parts of the second one during Monday Night Football commercials and it looked completely different from the first. A lot of footage of an actor portraying a blues singer shot in black and white to make it appear as if it was shot back in that time. Kinda hokey I thought, but I'll watch the whole thing later.

There are a lot of performances and old recordings, with all the lyrics in subtitles on the screen. If you're at all interested in the blues and the roots of popular music you should watch. I think each show will be very different since they are all made by different people.

I thought the 2nd one was more like a movie than the first which was like a documentary, but I really liked them both, the 2nd one had a good story to it, if the rest of the series is like these I'll have to buy the dvds!!

Chris Thomas King was in the 2nd one too which was pretty cool.
