Don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but I can't locate the DD Smash album on any of the usual sources. If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know, or else I'll just need to skip that match. (And DD would have a good chance, since I'm not a big fan of that particular Joe Jackson album.)

Unfortunately, this is blocked in the U.S. If the match were closer, I might look into buying it, but JJ seems to be running away with this one. Thanks for trying to find it for me, though!
