Yet for a while their music did a poor job of reflecting those primary inspirations. This new DVD, with its mostly classic soul covers, rights a few wrongs by focusing on the kinds of sounds that originally excited this unique duo, and made them exciting.

TV execs must find a workable balance between presenting a lineup that does the artist proper justice and creating a broadcast that brings in high ratings. If too many older artists appear on screen -- especially when the show revolves around a musical legend like Ray Charles – most young people won't give it a second glance. On the other hand, if the program parades a bunch of unseasoned young musicians unqualified to comment on the honoree, the point of the event may be missed entirely. ...

title: Blink 182: Greatest Hits function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Geffen Records MPAA rating: NR starring: blink-182 (Tom DeLonge; Mark Hoppus; Travis Barker) DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh There’s nothing particularly highbrow about a blink-182 Greatest Hits video collection. In fact, this punk trio aims for – and consistently hits – the lowest common denominator here. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker, blink-182 sings about simple stuff that appeals to young punks, and then illustrates these songs in ways that dumb them down for an undemanding, mostly teenage audience. This band’s most famous visual image is of themselves as three streakers, a concept first introduced with the “What’s My Age Again?” video. In it, the group runs around naked within a variety of different settings, and is even captured darting through The Jim Rome Show set. The act’s relatively young age is also played up, especially during the clip for “Josie,” which ...

title: Live 8 At Eden: Africa Calling function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Real World MPAA rating: NR starring: Thomas Mapfumo and The Blacks, Maryam Mursal, Mariza, Moudou Diof and O Fogum, Shikisha, Geoffrey Oryema, Syiyaya, Nelson Mandela, Youssou N’dour, Dido, Coco Mbassi' Angelique Kidjo, Ayub Ogada and Uno, Tinariwen, Frititi, Kanda Bongo Man, Akim El Sikameya, Emmanuel Jal, Daara J DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh There is an intrinsic justice in the all-African Live 8 line-up represented by this two-DVD set. It’s one thing to gather up wealthy rock stars and raise money for a worthy cause. It’s quite another matter, however, to watch African singers and musicians themselves calling for the end of Third World debt, as is done here. Obviously, these performers have a vested interest in the outcome of this vital issue. This historic July 6, 2005 concert also offers a healthy overview of the contemporary African music scene, which means you can go ...

They changed the face of popular music in so many ways we take for granted, and now, with the DVD release of the Concert for Bangladesh, we can add another to the list. When they broke up, officially in 1970, all four lads tried their hands at solo projects, George Harrison and John Lennon jumping the gun with half a dozen pre-’70 releases between them, but all four were left staring at the question of what it ...
