Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues: A Musical Journey | DVD | (12/12/2008)
from £19.99 | Saving you £3.00 (13.00%) | RRP
It may have been underrated when first broadcast, but executive producer Martin Scorsese's homage to the blues is a truly significant, if imperfect, achievement. "Musical journey" is an apt description, as Scorsese and the six other directors responsible for these seven approximately 90-minute films follow the blues--the foundation of jazz, soul, R&B, and rock & roll--from its African roots to its Mississippi Delta origins, up the river to Memphis and Chicago, then to New York, the United Kingdom, and beyond. Some of the films (like Wim Wenders's The Soul of a Man and Charles Burnett's Warming by the Devil's Fire) use extensive fictional film sequences, generally to good effect. There's also plenty of documentary footage, interviews, and contemporary studio performances recorded especially for these films. The last are among the best aspects of the DVDs, as the bonus material features the set's only complete tunes. Lou Reed's "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" and the ElektriK Mud Kats' (with Chuck D. of Public Enemy) hip-hop-cum-traditional updating of Muddy Waters's "Mannish Boy" are among the best of them; on the other hand, a rendition of "Cry Me a River" by Lulu (?!) is a curious choice, even with Jeff Beck on hand. The absence of lengthier vintage clips, meanwhile, is the principal drawback. For that reason alone, Clint Eastwood's Piano Blues is the best of the lot; a musician himself, Eastwood simply lets the players play, which means we get extensive file footage of the likes of Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, and Nat "King" Cole, as well as new performances by Ray Charles, Dr. John, and others. Overall, this is a set to savor, a worthwhile investment guaranteed to grow on you over the course of repeated viewings. --Sam Graham

Fire In Babylon | DVD | (13/10/2014)
from £6.79 | Saving you £6.20 (47.70%) | RRP
The West Indies cricket team in the 1970s and 80s rightly continues to be regarded as one of the finest of all time. Names such as Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd, Malcolm Marshall and Gordon Greenidge played the kind of cricket that remains talked about to this day. But what the film Fire In Babylon does is dig a little deeper, examining the ramifications of what that team achieved off the pitch as well as on it. Fire In Babylon examines the oppression and prejudice that the West Indies team was batting against, and how it came to gradually overcome them. It looks, too, at just what can be achieved by sporting success, with many of the key names of the time all contributing. Running to a little shy of 90 minutes, Fire In Babylon blends match footage when it can, and breezes through its running time. Perhaps it doesn?t quite fully match its ambitions, but it does provide a thoughtful, engaging documentary, one whose appeal should extend far beyond followers of cricket. It?s an uplifting piece of work, and one that really deserves to be seen. --Jon Foster

Rick’s journey begins in Galicia – famous for pilgrims, rain, fog, fresh seafood, empanadas and more rain. He enjoys a cider festival at Gijon; samples the famous ‘fabada’ – a hearty bean stew with sausage, belly pork and black pudding; and explores the making of Cabrales cheese in secret caves. Rick learns all about ‘pinxos’, the tapas of the north, while in San Sebastian, then it’s on to Navarra and its most famous town, Pamplona – known for its bull running, Ernest Hemingway - and the Catalonian town of Lleida, which is crazy about snails! Continuing his journey through the spectacular countryside, Rick also eats some of the best seafood in the country, including prawns from Palamos, best simply tossed in a hot pan with sea salt – sweet and succulent! After a spectacular paella festival in Valencia where the iconic dish was first created, the campervan moves towards the centre of the country, the land of Don Quixote in Castilla-La Mancha, where Rick visits the vineyard of Campo de Criptana and joins the local garlic farmers for the best garlic soup in the world. He finishes his travels in Andalucia’s fabulous city of Seville where the old world met the new world and changed the way we ate forever.
