Jeff Buckley - Live In Chicago | DVD | (19/06/2000)
from £3.45 | Saving you £-0.63 (-10.50%) | RRP
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jeff Buckley's untimely death gives the 108-minute Live in Chicago inevitable poignancy and power as a rare, complete document of his passionate writing and playing style. At the time of Buckley's ascendance in the mid-90s, both his high-flying vocal attack and his edgy poetic sense struck older listeners as genetic markers from his father, folk-rock legend Tim Buckley. Yet Buckley fils pursued a much more electric, rock-ribbed style, nodding toward behemoths such as Pearl Jam and even Led Zeppelin. This 1995 concert is a single, complete show from the tour that yielded the posthumous Mystery White Boy live album. It likewise impresses, both for Buckley's own songs and the bold cover choices included, here including songs associated with Nina Simone and the MC5 (a range that explains the emotional epics that Buckley favours). Visually, the unadorned lighting scheme casts an often harsh light on the pale, dark-haired frontman, but a generally solid performance is sonically captured with satisfying detail, and the 5.1 surround sound mix gives the DVD version an appropriate club ambience. --Sam Sutherland

One Giant Leap | DVD | (23/09/2002)
from £7.20 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
1 Giant Leap is a unique project devised by Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto (formerly of Faithless). It's a DVD accompaniment to an album that "fuses spoken word, musicians, sound, rhythms and images from all around the world". Subdivided into themes including "God: Blasphemy", "Inspiration", "Death" and "Happy", its aim is to explore and discover the "unity in diversity" and to this end, they profess to have assembled the "most happening musicians, authors, scientists and thinkers we could find" to offer their own thoughts interspersed with a river of eclectic ambient and world music along with images captured on their global travels. While the list of contributors does include Kurt Vonnegut and Brian Eno, whose contribution regarding olive trees is typically apposite and perfectly formed, one might wonder if the likes of Big Brother presenter Davina McCall and an ex-porn star really represent the vanguard of global thinking. The musical contributors include some artists seemingly past their sell-by date, such as Eddie Reader and Neneh Cherry, while the participation of Robbie Williams might make some groan. Furthermore, this sort of audio-visual imagery runs the danger of resembling the language of modern advertising, with its soothing, pan-global blandishments used to promote multinational industry. And yet, for all one's doubts, this project really does work. So often, ethnic music is drowned in bland, new-age "muzak" to make it palatable to Western ears. Here, it is heightened. A free-thinking, free-flowing context is provided in which all shine, including Michael Stipe and even Williams himself. This is a laudable project that demonstrates the possibility of working in margins unspoiled by commercialism is still alive. On the DVD: 1 Giant Leap on disc includes an accompanying booklet, amply packed with text and illustration. The 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound is particularly robust and bass-heavy. Extras include videos for the two singles, "Braided Hair" featuring Arrested Development's Speech and Neneh Cherry, and "My Culture", featuring Faithless's Maxi Jazz, both of which encapsulate the musical and ideological themes of the project as a whole. --David Stubbs

One Night Only! Rod Stewart Live at Royal Albert Hall | DVD | (23/04/2005)
from £5.69 | Saving you £12.30 (68.40%) | RRP
Rod Stewart's various incarnations--Rod the Mod, Rod the Rocker, Rod the Crooner, and so on--are on display on Live at Royal Albert Hall. In what amounts to a 90-minute singalong with his adoring fans, the raw-voiced singer (now huskier than ever) reprises selections from throughout his long and fruitful career, from his early '70s solo albums, including the best of the lot, 1971's Every Picture Tells a Story, through his surprisingly skillful (and successful) new millennium emergence as an interpreter of the Great American Songbook. Despite his having released three CDs of standards by the time of this good-looking, great-sounding concert, only five of the 17 tunes come from them, including a version of "As Time Goes By" with Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders (lush orchestration notwithstanding, there's no disguising the fact that both singers are more at home singing rock or pop than jazz, big band, or cabaret material). Much more emphasis is put on early Stewart material like "You Wear It Well", "Reason to Believe", and "Maggie May" songs that were and are beautifully limned by acoustic guitars, violin, and mandolin. Good buddy, former bandmate (in the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group), and current Rolling Stone Ron Wood plays guitar on a couple of numbers (including a raucous "Stay with Me"), and while Stewart does insist on giving "Hot Legs" a spin, at the age of 59 he at least has the good sense to keep "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" under wraps. A brief tour documentary is the principal DVD bonus feature. --Sam Graham

Sarah McLachlan - Mirrorball | DVD | (18/03/2000)
from £4.08 | Saving you £0.00 (0.00%) | RRP
This video companion to the Canadian singer-songwriter's triumphant live album confirms in sight what that recording advanced in sound--Sarah McLachlan and her fine, flexible stage band have evolved into a superb live performing unit, breathing added fire and nuance into McLachlan songs that were already stunning in their original studio versions. Always a strong, charismatic singer, McLachlan now conjures a rare balance of delicacy and power, measured here in performances of signature songs that add a new, more muscular edge matching her band's rock firepower. Thus, "Possession" expands beyond its already sensual promise to touch on truly erotic abandon, while "Building a Mystery" focuses its portrait of a narcissistic poseur with a harder edge and a newly amended, adult lyric that's entirely appropriate. Shot on McLachlan's 1998 headlining tour, the concert captures her in a more theatrical and frankly glamorous (if slightly funky) vein than her fabled Lilith Fair shows: in her floor-length blue gown, sparkling blue mascara, and bare feet, she evokes a more demure, Gen-X cousin to Cabaret's Sally Bowles. On the DVD: With 23 featured songs, Mirrorball on video adds nine tracks not heard on the CD. The audio mixing is generally excellent, providing some hall ambience but retaining a front-array, proscenium placement to instruments. Shot on film, rather than videotape, the concert preserves the stunning, subtle lighting effects of McLachlan's touring production, albeit at slight visual sacrifice in lower-light segments in which the resolution is grainier. --Sam Sutherland, Amazon.com
Sham 69 - The Adventures Of Sham 69 - Hersham Boys | DVD | (26/01/2004)
from £27.43 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Recorded at Brighton's Concorde 2 venue. Tracks include: What Have We Got / Hersham Boys / Fourteen Years / (No) I Don't Wanna / They Don't Understand / Tell Us The Truth / Ulster Boys / Give A Dog A Bone / Angels With Dirty Faces / No Entry / Questions And Answers / Poor Cow / Money (All Around) / Hurry Up Harry / Borstal Breakout / Tattoo / The Kids Are United / September The Eleventh / Blackpool / (Mister) You're A Better Man Than I / Borstal Breakout Sham 69's debut album 'Tell Us The Truth' was released in March 1978 and reached number 25 in the charts. Two months later they entered the singles chart with 'Angels With Dirty Faces'. This began a run of Jimmy Pursey / Dave Parson hit compositions - invariably accompanied by memorable appearances on Top Of The Pops - throughout 1978 and 1979. More than one Sham gig ended with Jimmy in tears of frustration caused by crowd aggression and stage invasions. No matter how many times Jimmy tried to articulate his oppostion to violence and racism the same few agitators turned up and started fighting. By June 1979 Sham 69 had had enough. But there was a twist to the plan. Sham 69 carried on. This story is told in the DVD biographic notes. The album 'The Adventures Of The Hersham Boys' was released and they resumed touring. But after some intense years the bands energy was gone. Sham 69 split up in July 1980. Jimmy Pursey and Dave Parsons reformed Sham 69 in 1986 with an ever changing line-up of other members. The 'new' Sham 69 have continued to gig and record regularly displaying perhaps a bit more lyrical scope and suss than in earlier incarnations. It's strange that a genuine renaissance man such as Jimmy Pursey has never gained a bit more respect and recognition. But his place outside the mainstream has also worked to his advantage: the bands Sham 69 influenced have never been content to follow fashion or adopt bland views that critics like to hear. Let's appreciate that Jimmy's still 'got something to say'. Long may he keep talking.

Nina Simone was one of the great female vocalists of the 20th century. She was equally at home singing jazz blues soul gospel or pure pop. Hugely prolific throughout the fifties sixties and seventies she recorded only rarely in her later career but remained a major live performer until well into the nineties when becoming increasingly frail she retired to France where she died in 2003 at the age of 70. Nina Simone made four appearances at the Montreux Festival between 1968 and

The Old Grey Whistle Test -- Two Disc Set | DVD | (17/09/2001)
from £19.99 | Saving you £5.00 (20.00%) | RRP
For better and for worse, The Old Grey Whistle Test was probably the most resolutely serious music programme ever broadcast on television. During its 16-year run it showcased only the most earnest exponents of whichever musical style was currently popular, and given that the programme's heyday coincided with the early 70s, some of the footage included here will provide mirth as exquisite as only unintentional comedy can. The absurd prog noodlings of The Edgar Winter Group and the belief-beggaringly awful Focus now seem as unfathomable in retrospect as trench warfare or child labour. However, the good stuff collected here is very good, both in terms of performance (Tom Petty snarling "American Girl", a pre-irony U2 whooping up "I Will Follow") and historical interest, notably a shockingly youthful Elton John crooning "Tiny Dancer" and reminding us, in the process, of a time when he was regarded as a cool and hip singer-songwriter, rather than understudy to the Queen Mother. --Andrew Mueller On the DVD: Wonderful performances all captured in remarkably pristine picture and extraordinarily vivid sound, regardless of vintage (it doesn't even crackle during "Hocus Pocus"!). However, the menu is pretty clunky and won't allow direct access to the individual songs (other than selecting the "Random play" option). Instead, you can only jump into the programme year by year, not song by song. The track listing itself is unhelpfully hidden behind the discs in the gatefold packaging. --Mark Walker
