  • Purple Rain [1984] Purple Rain | DVD | (24/05/1999) from £4.99  |  Saving you £13.50 (71.10%)  |  RRP £18.99

    While "rock musical" remains a phrase used by sadistic parents to give their offspring nightmares the genre does occasionally throw up the odd gem, Purple Rain being perhaps the shiniest example. Given the theatricality of Prince's stage shows, it was only a matter of time before the diminutive pop potentate found himself a big-screen vehicle but few could have predicted that Purple Rain would become nothing less than a cultural phenomenon. The story, co-written by one-time Starsky & Hutch scripter William Blinn, may be a somewhat hackneyed tale with His Purpleness overcoming a troubled background and musical rival Morris Day to achieve his dreams of rock stardom. However, the cast, which also includes Prince protegée Appollonia, rises above the clichés to hand in a set of performances which, while never likely to trouble the Oscars, prove that all concerned can at least play a rough approximation of themselves with minimal difficulty. What really helped push the film's box-office receipts through the roof, however, was its soundtrack featuring a clutch of hit singles--notably "When Doves Cry"--and which cemented our pint-sized hero's position as one of the globe's premiere performing artists. Sadly, subsequent attempts to re-bottle this particular brand of lightning with Under a Cherry Moon and Graffiti Moon would prove substantially less successful but Purple Rain still looks--and, more importantly sounds--rarely less than funktastic. --Clark Collis

  • Prince - Sign 'O' The Times Prince - Sign 'O' The Times | DVD | (11/07/2005) from £7.55  |  Saving you £12.44 (62.20%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A concert film with theatrical staging featuring live performances by Prince and his band. Written and directed by Prince himself this is an idiosyncratic high-energy fusion of live music and vignettes of street life specially filmed at Prince's Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis. Filmed on location at The Ahoy in Rotterdam during his 1987 Summer Tour Prince and his band perform a blistering set of 13 numbers including 'Sign O The Times' 'Little Red Corvette' and 'Housequake'.

  • Prince - Live At The Aladdin - Las Vegas [2003] Prince - Live At The Aladdin - Las Vegas | DVD | (25/08/2003) from £8.12  |  Saving you £1.87 (18.70%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Prince's galvanising performance Live at the Aladdin demonstrates that he really is one of the great talents of the last quarter-century, a fact easily obscured by the sheer volume and varying quality of his recorded output, not to mention his weird behaviour. The guy has always had a preternatural ability to channel R&B and rock legends such as Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix and James Brown (compare this performance's amazing "Money Don't Matter 2 Night/The Work"); now he's added more sophisticated flavours to the mix as well, ranging from George Benson to Steely Dan and Weather Report, and all without sacrificing his own voice. Add to that covers of the Ohio Players' "Love Rollercoaster" and Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" (really), all played by Prince and his smokin', skin-tight band, and what you get is one of the best shows of 2002, or any other year. It's extraordinary. --Sam Graham

  • Peter Kay - Live At The Bolton Albert Halls [2003] Peter Kay - Live At The Bolton Albert Halls | DVD | (10/11/2003) from £5.89  |  Saving you £10.10 (63.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Just a quick taxi ride from his mum's house, Peter Kay comes home to play Live at the Bolton Albert Halls. A packed and appreciative audience--sprinkled with Corrie stars for added glamour--relish the prodigal son's return. As his first stand-up show, Live at the Top of the Tower, demonstrated, Kay is a master of the mundane, finding hilarity in the previously unnoticed details of family life: here, Gran in her warden-protected flat, the funny way that dads run, and going to the supermarket with Mum are all mined for comic riches. Kay is an inspired mimic and observer of social interactions: in a tour-de-force segment he takes us to a typical wedding reception where we meet incoherent DJs, bitchy female friends of the bride, uncles embarrassing themselves on the dancefloor and little boys sliding on their knees. References to "the big light", Mum's preferred "Rola Cola" and garlic bread are thematic strands from his earlier show, developed here in Dad's horrified discovery of "cheese cake". Although Kay's observations play on his northern upbringing he generally avoids stereotypical north-south jokes; but here on home turf he can't resist mentioning the vexed issue of southern fish-and-chip shops with their lack of mushy peas, curry sauce and gravy ("have you got owt moist?"), and can even risk a little dig at Mancunians--which always goes down well with a Bolton crowd. Genial, nostalgic and unapologetically rooted in a Coronation Street worldview, Kay's comedy is both specific to time and place, and universal in its celebration of the everyday. --Mark Walker

  • Grease/Grease 2 [DVD] [1978] Grease/Grease 2 | DVD | (07/09/2009) from £6.22  |  Saving you £6.77 (52.10%)  |  RRP £12.99

  • Andrew Lloyd Webber - The Royal Albert Hall Celebration [1998] Andrew Lloyd Webber - The Royal Albert Hall Celebration | DVD | (16/10/2000) from £7.19  |  Saving you £12.80 (64.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    In 1998, a concert celebrated Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's 50th birthday at the Royal Albert Hall. It featured more than two hours of hits from a body of work spanning almost three decades. In this record of a memorable night, star after star steps onto a massive, Eurovision-style set to revisit golden moments in their long association with Britain's most successful composer of musicals. Elaine Paige in big frocks and even bigger voice delivers "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" and "Memory" with her usual power; Michael Ball and Donny Osmond stretch the last vestiges of boyish charm to the very limits but still sound great; and Boyzone get the youth vote. Then there are Kiri te Kanawa, Bonnie Tyler, Tina Arena and of course, another encore for Julian Lloyd Webber and those Variations on the cello. But the stars are Sir Andrew's ex-wife Sarah Brightman in an outstanding selection from The Phantom of the Opera (probably his best work), Antonio Banderos who really can sing, and Glenn Close, a stupendous, moving Norma Desmond in songs from Sunset Boulevard. All in all, a deserved celebration for someone who has given so many people a great deal of pleasure, and a treat for musicals fans of all ages. --Piers Ford

  • In Concert - Live At Sibelius Hall In Concert - Live At Sibelius Hall | DVD | (05/12/2011) from £10.59  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Finnish singer Tarja Turunen is one of the most well known heavy metal soprano singers, becoming one of the most important female voices and faces in metal music. First as part of multi-million-selling and groundbreaking symphonic metal band Nightwish and later with her successful solo career, carrying her own name. It’s widely known that Tarja’s musical background is classical music and her voice classically trained. After the enormous success with Nightwish and two gems of heavy rock solo records, Tarja goes back to her “first love” for a while. Tarja Turunen & HARUS represents the start of a new journey, crossing genres and musical cultures. HARUS is a rather peculiar, uncommon Finnish word that describes the four tensors that keep a tent together or the tensor that keeps the mast from falling in a sailing boat. Both of the meanings apply to this line up: four members, four equals, four different backgrounds to tie together exquisite classical music developed strongly and in a very stable way, with a taste of experimental, modern feel.
