Ginger Baker - Ginger Baker In Africa DVD Review by Greg Olma I had heard about this film years ago when I was looking for Cream material. It has finally come out on DVD and although you will find it in the music section of most video stores, this film is really more of a documentary. More
Band Du Lac - One Night Only Live DVD Review by Greg Olma Charities are a wonderful thing. Not only do they help people but they have the ability to gather together musical artists that would normally not share a stage together. More
Chris Barber - As We Like It DVD Review by Gary Hill This DVD is the film version of a one-night only performance by jazz/blues legend Chris Barber. While this film will certainly please fans of old school jazz, the inclusion of Andy Fairweather-Low on a couple tracks means that younger audiences will be drawn in, too.
The Beach Boys - The Beach Boys And The Satan DVD Review by Greg Olma One of the things that I always judge a release by is the title and packaging. In DVD terms, if they call it a documentary on a band but all you get is a bunch of videos and old interviews, then I feel that the makers have misled the consumer.
The Beatles - From Liverpool to San Francisco DVD Review by Gary Hill This new DVD is a pretty interesting look into the history of arguably the most important band in the history of rock music. To begin with there is a documentary of the band covering their history from 1963 in Liverpool to the end of the band in 1970. More
The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour Memories DVD Review by Gary Hill This is a rather intriguing documentary. The video focuses on the filming of “The Magical Mystery Tour” and how the invasion of the Beatles changed the whole area where the group were working. Certainly this will be of interest to Beatles fanatics. More
The Beatles - Rare and Unseen DVD Review by Gary Hill This is definitely a treasure trove for Beatles fans. What we have here is a whole collection of all kinds of never before seen rarities. More
George Benson - Absolutely Live DVD Review by Gary Hill I’ve chatted with some jazz purists who really don’t think highly of George Benson, chalking him up as pop leaning soft jazz. I can see their point to a degree, but I think they are really missing out. More
The Black Crowes - Warpaint Live DVD Review by Gary Hill I’ve already reviewed the CD version of this set, so, for the most part I’ll leave it to that one to talk about the concert and focus here on the video itself. More
Bon Jovi - The Story of My Life DVD Review by Gary Hill A point is made on this documentary that really said a lot to me. Had Bon Jovi not made it there probably would have never been a hair-metal scene. More
James Brown - Live in Montreux 1981 DVD Review by Gary Hill When it’s James Brown how much do you really need to say? The man is the Godfather of Soul, and for that style of music it just doesn’t get much better than this. More
The Byrds - Under Review DVD Review by Gary Hill This is another DVD in the “Under Review” series, and once again, the quality here is top notch. In addition to giving some insight into the world that gave birth to the Byrds, we get treated to in-depth analysis of the music of the band.
