U2 -Achtung Baby( A Classic Album Under Review) | DVD | (12/03/2012)
from £5.57 | Saving you £0.04 (0.70%) | RRP
At the dawn of the 90s, tensions in the U2 camp were fraught. The band fought about the direction they should take for their next project having received some harsh criticism for the backward looking Rattle & Hum a couple of years before. Bono & Edge were keen to tap into Alternative Dance Music and European Industrial landscapes while Mullen and Clayton wanted to continue with the sound that had assured their success for more than a decade already. When solutions were not readily forthcoming, the band even considered splitting up. But a communal belief in the power of the group to overcome such obstacles bought U2 back from this lowest of ebbs, the result of these discrepancies allowed U2 to offer up the strongest statement they had made to date. Changing the entire musical background in which they existed - it may be unfashionable to suggest now, but without this pivotal album laying a fair bit of groundwork for alternative music generally, it would be doubtful if the likes of Radiohead and Coldplay would have achieved quite so much - U2 had triumphed. Recognised today as one of the greatest albums ever produced, the first film in this two disc set looks back at the development, production, reception and aftermath of Achtung Baby and features interviews with the band and those closest to them, plus a host of other features making this programme the finest document yet to chart the album that saved U2 from extinction But this most classic of albums did nothing if not pave the way for what came in its wake, and disc two in the set covers the post-Achtung era - follow up projects, as well as their arrival in the second millennium. Over three hours in length across two discs, completed in digi-style packaging, this visual celebration of 20 years of Achtung Baby will remain the ultimate tribute to a modern classic.

Death of a Gentleman | DVD | (26/10/2015)
from £4.79 | Saving you £13.20 (73.40%) | RRP
What would you do if something you loved was dying? What if the sport that created your heroes and the back-story to your life, was in danger of disappearing? Test cricket is a game that has no right to exist in the 21st century. The five day game is the purest form of the second most popular sport on earth, representative of tradition, history and identity. Yet as the short attention spans of a new generation dictate immediacy, the Test game is in danger of being swamped by its shorter, sexier, more financially viable cousin ?Twenty20'. Money corrupts the best of intentions, and as cricket's administrators rub their hands with glee, the Gentleman's game is now a product left at the back of the shelf. Two cricket fans who became journalists, Old Etonian Sam Collins and larrikin Aussie Jarrod Kimber, from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale but united by their love of Test cricket, join forces to try to help save it. They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ?Who really cares about Test cricket?' They talk to the players, ex-players, broadcasters, journalists, administrators and fans. They venture, often uninvited, into boardrooms, offices, hotel rooms and even the home of cricket itself, Lord's, looking for answers as to who is responsible, and what are they doing to save their game. Along the way they befriend journeyman cricketer Eddie Cowan as he prepares to make his Test debut for Australia in front of 70,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Eddie is the guy doing what they always dreamed of. His infectious love for Test cricket helps convince them that Test cricket is still relevant, that it is worth saving. They travel around Australia with Eddie and experience his ups and downs on tour, watch the Australia vs. India Test series, journey to India to take a closer look at the IPL, bug famous cricket people in the UK and look at open corruption in Sri Lanka as they try to piece together a picture for the future of Test cricket. They run into ogres, well-meaning automatons and the feverishly self- obsessed. Everyone passes the buck. As Eddie's future teeters in the balance, so too does the future of Test cricket. As a story of deceit, incompetence and greed unfolds; one man is living his dream, while two others are trying to keep theirs from dying. Death of a Gentleman is not a nostalgic look back at a sport that professionals played against amateurs while stopping for tea. It's a modern morality tale about a future where sport and money collide, India as a super-power, the curse of the professional administrator and set in a world where fans are better connected to (but more disconnected from) their heroes than ever before. More than that, it is a final call; not just to cricket fans and administrators, but everyone in a rapidly changing world. If you care about something that's in danger, then don't pass the buck, do something about it. Before it's too late.

Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues: A Musical Journey | DVD | (12/12/2008)
from £18.75 | 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
