Def Leppard's album Hysteria sold over 17 million copies, produced seven hit singles and brought worldwide superstardom to the band in 1987.After the success in America of the 1983 album Pyromania, Def Leppard went into 'exile' in Dublin to begin the writing and production of their fourth album. It would be four years in the making. During this time they would try three different record producers, three different recording studios, Producer Robert 'Mutt' Lange would suffer leg injuries in a car accident, drummer Rick Allen would narrowly survive a terrible car crash but lose his left arm in the accident, and the band would be taken to the limits of their physical and emotional endurance.This programme takes a track by track look at the making of the album. We speak to Joe Elliott, Rick Allen, Phil Collen, and Rick Savage who lead us through the original multitrack tapes. Joe and Phil play acoustic versions of 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' and 'Hysteria', and Sav and Phil demonstrate riffs and licks from the songs, and explain the genesis of the songwriting. Rick talks of the impact of the car accident on his life and on the band, of his determination to re-learn the drums, and of his triumphant return to performing live at the 1986 Donnington Festival.Featured songs include 'Animal', 'Rocket', 'Love Bites', 'Hysteria', 'Women', 'Armageddon It' and 'Pour Some Sugar On Me'. The programme is illustrated by archive footage from Def Leppard in concert, TV performances and promotional videos, and provides a unique insight into the making of a record which dominated the charts for two years, a true Classic Album.
at Essential DVDs we offer postage discounts for orders of 2 or more
postage is calculated on the weight and size of parcels, Box Sets are
included in the below discounts. This is because the weight and size of
Box Sets are varied. Orders containing Box Sets still qualify for
similar discounts, but will need to be manually calculated. eBay cannot
automatically generate discounts on postage for multiple quantity orders
so a new invoice will need to be issued. This will be done as soon as
possible, usually within 12 hours. If you want to make immediate payment
feel free to do so, we will simply refund you your discount at the time
of postage. Please look below for discounts on regular postage. The
more you buy, the cheaper each DVD is to post.
1 DVD - $4.40
DVDs - $6.80
3 DVDs - $8.50
4 DVDs - $10.00
5-7 DVDs - $12.50

occasions postage can take up to 10 working days. We offer Registered

parcel going missing is 1/1000 or 0.1%

We take the utmost care when packaging DVDs for shipment. As of
September 2010 all DVDs will be posted with bubble wrap and/or padding
(padded bags or wrapped in bubble-wrap. Foam beads and cardboard
sheeting may also be used where required). Despite many trials using
different materials over the past 4 years, occasionally items will get
damaged in the post. On the rare occasion that a DVD case is cracked,
please notify us and we will send out a new case, or refund the cost of a
new case. In the event of a disc spilling loose inside the cover, and
subsequently being scratched, a replacement will be sent out, or full
refund issued upon return of the DVD.
eBay have realised that leaving
feedback for up to 50 sales a day is a very time consuming task. For
that reason eBay have an automatic feedback system which Essential DVDs
have taken advantage of. Once positive feedback has been received, it
tells us that your item arrived safely and that you are happy with the
transaction. So, this account is set to automatically leave positive
feedback for customers once positive feedback has been received. We feel
this is the best option as it leaves more time for our staff to list
new stock, and lets us know the sale is complete and customer is happy. A
friendly email reminding customers to leave feedback will be
automatically sent out 15 days after an item has been posted.
We believe all issues can
be resolved, and all Negative and Neutral feedback avoided. So please
email us if you have any problems regarding your order and we will do
out best to resolve the situation. Feedback extortion and threats of
leaving bad feedback will not be taken lightly and you will be reported
Of course, eBay's feedback system is completely voluntary. If you
dont want to leave us feedback that is fine.
Please make payment within 7 days of
purchase. If you need longer for payment, email us and other
arrangements can usually be made. Accepted Payment Methods are PayPal,
Bank Deposit, and Money Order.
PayPal Instant Payments are the fastest method of
payment. Please be aware that PayPal eCheques take up to 7 working days
If paying via Bank Deposit, please complete the Checkout Process on
eBay to access our Bank Account details. Using Internet Banking is the
easiest way to complete a Bank Deposit, but if you would rather complete
the deposit in person make sure you have a St George / Bank SA branch
near by. PLEASE
leave your eBay user ID as reference when you complete a bank deposit! We take anything from 5 - 15
deposits a day and it causes delays when deposits show up with no
description. When that happens we cannot post the item until we have
successfully matched the deposit to an order, and sometimes this can
take as long as 2 weeks as many items sell for the same price. Also, please allow 3 to 4
working days for a deposit to clear. Some banks are quicker than others.
Orders are also accepted, but they are an added expense to the buyer
and will take roughly 4 working days to reach us, meaning the order will
take a further 4-6 working days after that to arrive. Estimated
delivery time for orders paid via Money Order is 10-12 working days.
If you dont intend to pay for an item, DO NOT purchase it. It just wastes our time...
We will follow through eBay's dispute process to obtain all lost fees
incurred for the sale. This will result in the Non Paying Buyer
receiving a Strike, and potentially being kicked off eBay.
Australian DVDs are coded in Region 4 format. All DVD
Players purchased in Australia will play Region 4 DVDs. Occasionally we
stock Region 1 (USA) DVDs, usually because a particular DVD is a popular
title which has not been released in Australian Region 4 format yet.
Region 1 DVDs will require a Multi-Region DVD Player. Some DVDs are
Region free / Region ALL / Region 0 which all mean there is no coding,
and will play in any DVD Player. The majority of DVD Players are capable
of playing Region 1, 4 and 0 DVDs these days, and if you are unsure
please consult your DVD Player manual, or conduct an internet search on
your DVD model. Every item we list will clearly state which Region the
DVD is coded for so there should be no confusion.
and HD DVD formats
BLURAY and High Definition DVDs were both released as new and
improved formats to the Standard DVD, with better overall quality.
BLURAY outsold HD DVD and as a result the production of HD DVDs was
ceased. Both formats require their own specific DVD players. BLURAY will
not play in a HD DVD Player and HD DVDs will not play in a BLURAY
Player. Neither will play in a standard DVD Player. Please ensure you
are buying the correct DVD format for the DVD Player you intend in
playing it in.
Refunds are given for items broken or
damaged in the post or
for faulty DVDs, upon
return of the item. We cannot refund for items purchased for the wrong
Region DVD Player, wrong Format DVD Player. Or items lost in the mail
where the buyer chose to not pay for Registered Post.
