I'm unable to find any unit of CD + Graphics equipment which supports multi-language lyrics at CD+G. All Cd+G decoders I know aren't having any buttons / knobs etc. for choosing language. They will display lyrics at this CD-G only in English. Pioneer LD-G format and any such units are supporting up to 16 languages but only for LaserDisc (i.e. via digital audio channel), as soon CD+G is used this function is disabled. Can somebody confirm presence of 5 languages at this CD+G and how to use them?

New York (1989) is perhaps one of the best albums from Lou Already career. With the no-nonsense approach and ferme sardonic texts seizes it back on the days of the Velvet Underground. The difference here is the life wisdom that drove in the meantime has gained. He has learned how he can focus his razor-sharp pen, with attacks on the New York police, politicians, right-wing extremists and a whole group of others. An attractive development on New York's the way Reed agile Frank socio-political observations and inspired, poetic eruptions mixing, such as the street know fairy tale Romeo Had Juliette. Reed is a skilled social critic, one goes in on physical abuse and the differences between rich and poor in his city. In he used the death of Andy Warhol Dimestore Mystery to ponder over the human and the divine, and the mortality as the difference between the two. Guest contribution by Mo Tucker in the number strengthens the VU comparisons again. New York is after installing Undergroud-the Velvet albums essential Lou Reed material to in the record closet.

My LP copy has a category # W1-25829 but I can't find any other information on it. Does anyone know anything about it?
