Technical glitch in Neil's new DVD

From the director's of Neil Peart's new DVD, "Anatomy of a Drum Solo":

Subject: Note from Hudson Music regarding Neil's new DVD.

To Neil's Fans,

We would like to respond to the vague notice that has been posted on as to a "production defect" in Neil Peart's new DVD, Anatomy of a Drum Solo. To clarify what the "defect" is, it's a 3-second, audio-only dropout that occurs in Element 3 of Disc One, in a cowbell part, during an excerpt of "Der Trommler", the drum solo on which the DVD is based. The program is almost 3 1/2 hours long.

It's important to note that this cowbell part is fully audible, with no drop outs, in three other places on the DVD: in the full performance of "Der Trommler", in a "bonus" performance of the solo filmed the next night, and in the in-studio demo that Neil does when talking about that segment of the solo.

We have already corrected this minor flaw for the next run of the DVD, but in the meantime, we felt that it was important that Neil's fans know that the defect is a very minor one and that there is little reason for concern. If you purchase a copy that has this dropout and would like to exchange it, please go to our website for instructions on how to do so. Thank you for your support.

Yours truly,

Rob Wallis and Paul Siegel

Hudson Music
