Select North American retailers are currently carrying Kathleen Edwards' "Live at the Bowery Ballroom" EP. The Rounder Records release is a DVD-Plus disc, which allows for one side of the disc to feature audio and DVD-video content on the other.

The audio side of the Canadian singer/songwriter's disc boasts three live tracks recorded June 13 at New York's Bowery Ballroom. Along with her own "National Steel" and "Hockey Skates," both from her Zoe/Rounder debut "Failer," also featured is a cover of AC/DC's "Money Talks."

The video side of the disc boasts videos for the "Failer" cuts "Six O'Clock News" and "One More Song the Radio Won't Like."

Measuring 1.48 millimeters thick, the disc will play in all CD and DVD players, including computers and game consoles, says Dieter Dierks, founder and co-CEO of DVD Plus International, the Stommeln, Germany/Sydney, Australia-based global license holder of DVD Plus patents. The "Live From the Bowery Ballroom" discs were replicated in Germany, says Dierks.

Edwards has spent much of 2003 on the road in support of the critically acclaimed "Failer." Her only remaining date comes tomorrow (Dec. 3) at WCLZ Portland, Maine's Acoustic Christmas concert. Beth Orton and Crash Test Dummies are also on the bill.

Released in January, "Failer" debuted at No. 20 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Edwards has plans to begin recording her sophomore album in the spring.
