OK, so I'm back after a quick google search.

Good news is: You can convert the signal.

Bad news is: The converters can be $300 and up. I did find one for $53 plus shipping that looks like it would do the job:

It'* still too much to spend to just view one DVD, though.

you could buy a DVD burner for less than $50, rip it, re-author it and re-burn it in region 1 NTSC format

Lol!

Or I could just pay $15 for the US version to be shipped to my door from BestPrices.com.

I think I'll send the PAL version to my wife'* cousin in Scotland. They should enjoy it...maybe. From what I hear, Neil Young is an aquired taste.

Try Harvest Moon. It'* more accessible than many of his albums.

IMO, he is a true minstrel in the classical form. A musical storyteller and always a questioner of times, compelling one to question who and where we are. But I am also well aware that people either like or hate his style and voice.

His voice doesn't bother me as much as Bob Dillon'* does. I don't have to question where I am because people are always telling me where to go :P
