from £4.19 | Saving you £11.80 (73.80%) | RRP
For four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote town, 1968 was the year that would change their lives forever. Around the world there was revolutions and drugs. And there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great love of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to 'The Supremes', Dave secures their first gig, and then takes them to Vietnam to sing for the troops. Based on a true story, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of love, family and music.

One Night Only | Blu Ray | (29/07/2013)
from £10.59 | Saving you £2.40 (18.50%) | RRP
Taped as a lavish cable television special in 1997, One Night Only trades on the Bee Gees' shape-shifting career as pop survivors. Over the course of 111 minutes, this straightforward concert, produced at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and groomed for both video and CD posterity, sprints through 31 songs from their past three decades. Even after the inevitable disco jokes are expended, and the jaundiced viewer contemplates the role hats, hairspray, and comb-overs now play in dressing the once stylishly long-haired troika, the Gibb brothers' signature vocal harmonies and hook-laden song craft beg respect.Casual listeners can't be blamed for equating the Bee Gees with the dance floor bonanza they reaped through 1978's Saturday Night Fever, yet that commercial zenith was actually the culmination of a comeback for a group that had seemed washed up by the early 1970s. One Night Only thankfully takes an even-handed view of both their original late 1960s hits ("Massachusetts", "To Love Somebody", "Lonely Days"), building from a cannily Beatle-browed vocal sound, and the 1970s blue-eyed soul ("Jive Talkin'", "Nights on Broadway") that led them naturally into disco. The Fever hits are here, as are Gibb originals that clicked for other acts; the family circle also widens for a posthumous duet with their late brother, Andy Gibb, while Celine Dion gets star billing in the collaborative "Immortality". --Sam Sutherland

Roustabout | DVD | (18/03/2002)
from £3.99 | Saving you £9.00 (69.30%) | RRP
The Elvis formula was well in place by the time of 1964's Roustabout, a concoction of undistinguished songs (anyone remember "Poison Ivy League"?), pretty girls, tight pants, a colourful setting and a little bit of karate to prove that Elvis really had been studying his martial arts. With that understood, Roustabout is a better-than-average work-out for the King--not as peppy as Viva Las Vegas, but a good deal livelier than the sleepwalking It Happened at the World's Fair. Elvis plays a bad-boy singer roaming the highways on his Japanese motorcycle; laid up after an accident, he joins a carnival owned by the feisty Barbara Stanwyck. ("This is not a circus, it's a carnival. There's a big difference.") The cast goes from high to low: both giant-sized future James Bond villain Richard Kiel and tiny Billy Barty are carny regulars, and Raquel Welch has a small role in the opening scene. Teri Garr is one of the carnival dancers behind Elvis. The legendary costume designer Edith Head puts Elvis in a series of snappy windbreakers, but thank goodness he's also in black leather a lot. As if that weren't enough to recommend it, the movie has a sequence involving Elvis riding a cycle inside the "Wall of Death", a huge wooden cylinder with high walls. This bit actually inspired an entire Irish film in 1986, Eat the Peach, in which friends build a similar contraption after they watch Roustabout on tape. --Robert Horton

Russell Watson Return of the Voice Live From the Royal Albert Hall | DVD | (07/11/2011)
from £5.89 | Saving you £4.10 (41.00%) | RRP
Wow ... was Russell's reaction as he walked out to a standing ovation at the venue of his dreams. This is so much more than a concert; it is an experience of the greatest musical and emotional magnitude. The spotlight was very much on the man with one of the most sensational singing voices that the classical world has ever known. But he was not alone; filling the enormous stage with him was the forty-eight piece Arts Symphonic impeccably led by Lizzie Ball under enigmatic conductor Robert Emery, the assured Capital Voices and an eighty- strong backing choir. What a magical sight and what magnificent sound! Russell made an emotional opening to his fans, It's difficult to find words to explain how I feel tonight ... because I built myself to this moment from the very day that I finished my last session of radiotherapy. I remember going to bed dreaming about this night in the most famous of venues on the planet and here I am, thank God - I can't believe it. Thank you for your welcome, it was absolutely incredible thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Russell's faultless performance starts with a powerful rendition of Somewhere and Ave Maria and is followed by a string of incredible numbers such as Funiculi Funicula and Volare and closes with a Royal Albert Hall roof-raising Nessun Dorma . One of the highlights of the wonderful set comes when Russell is joined by classical crossover newcomer Mary-Jess for a Phantom Of The Opera medley, and an amazing duet of The Prayer . This is a dream come true and a performance of a life-time, enjoy.
White Christmas | DVD | (03/12/2001)
from £5.59 | Saving you £10.00 (62.50%) | RRP
This semi-remake of Holiday Inn (the first movie in which Irving Berlin's perennial, Oscar-winning holiday anthem was featured) doesn't have much of a story, but what it does have is choice: Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, an all-Irving Berlin song score, classy direction by Hollywood vet Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, The Adventures of Robin Hood), VistaVision (the very first feature ever shot in that widescreen format), and ultrafestive Technicolor! Crosby and Kaye are song-and-dance men who hook up, romantically and professionally, with a "sister" act (Clooney and Vera-Ellen) to put on a Big Show to benefit the struggling ski-resort lodge run by the beloved old retired general (Dean Jagger) of their WWII Army outfit. Crosby is cool, Clooney is warm, Kaye is goofy, and Vera-Ellen is leggy. Songs include: "Sisters" (Crosby and Kaye do their own drag version, too), "Snow", "We'll Follow the Old Man", "Mandy", "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep" and more. Christmas would be unthinkable without White Christmas. --Jim Emerson

Ian Hunter Band Feat. Mick Ronson - Live At Rockpalast | DVD | (23/01/2012)
from £17.65 | Saving you £2.34 (11.70%) | RRP
La notte tra il 19 e il 20 aprile 1980 viene ricordata come una vera perla nella lunga storia del programma TV della WDR Rockpalast: l'esibizione in team di due leggende del glam rock, Ian Hunter con la sua band, leader dei mitici Mott The Hoople, e il compianto chitarrista degli Spiders From Mars di Bowie Mick Ronson. Le strade dei due si erano giÃ incrociate con la Hunter Ronson Band e grazie anche alle amicizie e collaborazioni condivise Ian e Mick sarebbero rimasti complici musicali fino alla morte di Ronson. Lo show registrato alla Grugahalle di Essen, parte del tour promozionale dell'album Welcome To The Club, proponeva una setlist con classici dei Mott The Hoople, compreso l'immancabile inno glam scritto da Bowie All The Young Dudes e alcune tracce dai rispettivi album solisti dei due.
Bugsy Malone | DVD | (17/02/2003)
from £9.95 | Saving you £-6.81 (-75.80%) | RRP
Writer-director Alan Parker's feature debut Bugsy Malone is a pastiche of American movies, a musical gangster comedy set in 1929, featuring prohibition, showgirls and gang warfare, with references to everything from Some Like It Hot to The Godfather. Uniquely, though, all the parts are played by children, including an excellent if underused Jodie Foster as platinum-blonde singer Tallulah, Scott Baio in the title role and a nine-year-old Dexter Fletcher wielding a baseball bat. Cream-firing "spluge guns" side-step any real violence and the movie climaxes cheerfully with the biggest custard pie fight this side of Casino Royale (1967). Unfortunately for a musical, Paul Williams' score--part honky-tonk jazz homage, part 1970s Elton John-style pop--lets the side down with a lack of memorable tunes. Nevertheless, Parker's direction is spot on and the look of the film is superb, a fantasy movie-movie existing in the same parallel reality as The Cotton Club and Chicago. A rare British love letter to classic American cinema, Bugsy Malone remains a true original; in Parker's words "the work of a madman" and one of the strangest yet most stylish children's films ever made. On the DVD: Bugsy Malone's picture is presented non-anamorphically at 1.66:1, with rich colours and plenty of detail. The print is excellent. The audio is stereo only and while full and clear seems to leave a hole in the middle of the soundstage. Extras include an informative commentary by Parker, eight pages of trivia notes by Parker and a very informative 12-page booklet, also by the director. There are three trailers, nine character profiles, two scored galleries, and more imaginatively, a multi-angle option to compare Parker's sketches, their comic-strip realisation by Graham Thomson and the finished opening sequence. Quality over quantity make this a strong collection of extras, though recollections from the stars would have added so much more. --Gary S. Dalkin
Annie Get Your Gun | DVD | (22/04/2002)
from £4.69 | Saving you £9.30 (66.50%) | RRP
Irving Berlin's classic stage musical Annie Get Your Gun finally reached the big screen in 1950, four years after it had taken Broadway by storm. The irresistible combination of the story of ground-breaking sharpshooter Annie Oakley, fantastic songs like the rousing anthem "There's No Business Like Show Business" and the setting of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, made most people feel it was worth the wait. More than half a century on, the book creaks audibly and the treatment of the "Indians" who make up the bulk of the troupe is inevitably embarrassing. But in glorious Technicolor, this in-your-face spectacular defies you not to get sucked in. Quite simply, the show is a winner. Ethel Merman's performance on Broadway became an immediate show business legend, but she was largely ignored by Hollywood. Here, Betty Hutton's whirlwind Annie is, on its own terms, an explosive and hugely entertaining turn, matched by Howard Keel in his first starring part as Frank Butler. But Judy Garland was the first choice for the role and had already filmed several numbers before MGM fired her for her erratic behaviour. It seems almost cruel to include a couple of her songs as extras; even a 40-watt Garland makes the otherwise incandescent Hutton look merely adequate. They certainly add a frisson to this celebration of all-American entertainment at its boldest and brassiest. On the DVD: Annie Get Your Gun is presented in standard 4:3 format (the original aspect ratio was a similar 1.37:1) and the picture quality is so sharp it blows you out of your seat. Likewise the stereo soundtrack, brilliant for songs which include "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly", "Anything You Can Do" and the sublime "They Say it's Wonderful". Apart from the Garland numbers, the extras include a Hutton outtake and an introduction to the show from a recent Broadway Annie, Susan Lucci. Overall, though, the show's the thing. --Piers Ford

Mistaken for Strangers | DVD | (14/07/2014)
from £6.39 | Saving you £9.60 (60.00%) | RRP
In 2010 the rock band The National released their fifth album High Violet. After ten years as critical darlings the band was finally enjoying wider recognition. As they were about to embark on the biggest tour of their career lead singer Matt Berninger invited his younger brother Tom to be a part of their tour crew. A budding filmmaker and horror movie enthusiast Tom brought along his camera to film the experience. Mistaken For Strangers follows the story of two brothers at very different moments in their lives. Approaching forty Matt is just now beginning to experience life as a rock star. Before he is invited on tour Tom age 30 is still living at home in Cincinnati. On tour Tom struggles to keep up with his crew duties. He watches his older brother perform sold-out shows for screaming fans and feels increasingly cut off from him. He doesn't always understand the band's success (he prefers heavy metal). He falls into bad habits loses track of the film he is trying to make and Matt starts to come down on him. Eventually Tom gets fired. After tour Tom moves in with Matt and his wife Carin who put him up until he finishes the film. This proves difficult; Tom shot over 200 hours of footage. He's scattered overwhelmed and feeling lost. The film Tom finally produces is a hilarious and touching look at two very different brothers and an odd but strangely moving portrait of a popular nuanced band.
