from £25.35 | Saving you £-9.36 (-58.50%) | RRP
The ITV Sessions – Asia: Live in concert DVD, is one of the first titles released from the ITV Sessions, a multi-part music concert series, featuring some of the biggest names in the UK music scene from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The ITV Sessions feature rare and previously unavailable music concerts, long laying dormant in ITV’s archives and include live performances and studio sessions by international hit-makers such as Status Quo, Belinda Carlisle, Pulp, Motorhead, Wishbone Ash, Spandau Ballet and many more.Asia, formed in 1981, was labelled a supergroup and included former members of veteran progressive rock bands Yes, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Uriah Heep, U.K., Roxy Music, Wishbone Ash and The Buggles. When they appeared in the early '80s, Asia seemed to be a holdover from the '70s, when progressive rockers reigned supreme. Asia did feature stretches of indulgent instrumentals on their records, however, they also could be surprisingly poppy and that is what brought them to the top of the charts with their debut album, Asia, and its hit single, Heat of the Moment. Tracks: Wildest Dreams, Sole Survivor, Don't Cry, Voice Of America, Time Again, Praying For A Miracle, The Smile Has Left, Your Eyes, Only Time Will Tell, Days Like These, The Heat Goes On, Go, Heat Of The Moment, Open Your Eyes

Purple Rain (Two Disc Special Edition) | DVD | (18/10/2004)
from £7.99 | Saving you £1.06 (7.60%) | RRP
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
