Press Release: Raw & Rare

We are delighted to announce the official release of the first of the live DVDs shot at Firefest 4 last October. The first release will be Harem Scarem's "Raw and Rare".

This release will be available as a collectors edition set consisting of the final Harem Scarem live performance ever, which took place at Firefest 4 on October 27th 2007. The package also contains a full live show, recorded in Ajax, Canada in 1994 whilst the band were in the middle of the "Mood Swings" world tour. This is the first time that a show from the legendary "Mood Swings" tour has been officially released and is a MUST HAVE for every fan of the band. And as a bonus feature, Harry and Pete have rifled through the vaults and come up with some never before seen privately shot footage of the band throughout the years. As a further bonus the guys are making four live clips available that were recorded on the 1997 European Tour. To complete the edition, the CD disc in the package is the live audio of the final Firefest 4 performance. The collectors edition will be a limited edition of 1000 copies only, each one individually numbered.
The DVD portion of the collectors edition will be a super-extended dual layer disc. For those who may be unfamiliar with the terminology 'Dual Layer', what it basically means is the single DVD disc contained in this package is the equivalent of two standard DVDs. Dual layer discs are now industry standard and most shop bought DVDs featuring large amounts of extras now use this format.

As the band have many fans throughout the world, the release will be available in both PAL and NTSC format, and also region free, so when ordering please state your preference.
Now the tricky part; of the 1000 copies available, 700 are available in PAL format and 300 available in NTSC format, and when they are gone, that's it. This collectors edition will not be reprinted by Harem Scarem or Firefest, so if you want to be sure to get your copy of this essential release we will be accepting pre-orders through www.thefirefest.com OR www.haremscarem.net.
