The "Special Features" brought back a lot of memories. Like wanting to watch Countdown in 1979 (being only 17) and having to argue with my father who wanted to look at the football.

For instance, it is generally known that Bob Dylan has sold an incredible amount of 90 million albums in his whole career. But Bob has been selling records since the early sixties (more than 40 years) and he has a...
