title: The Pixies: Sell Out 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: Rhino/WEA MPAA rating: NR starring: Pixies (Black Francis aka Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering) DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh The phrase that best describes the Pixies’ story is: better late than never. The band’s fan base prior to their 1992 breakup was a small, select group. Their following has grown significantly since then, however. This concert DVD finds the four-member ensemble basking in the glory they really should have received way back when all these songs were still new.

title: Cream Farewell Concert 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: Image Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Cream (Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker) original release year: 1968 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh Once you get past the dated hippie look of this 1968 Cream concert video, you’ll likely fall in love (possibly again) with this legendary rock power trio. Of course, everybody knows about its guitarist, Eric Clapton. In fact, he was already a big star even before the group first formed. But drummer Ginger Baker and bassist Jack Bruce also make indelible impressions here. If there are any doubts about Cream’s greatness still, which is highly unlikely, this video document should convert these few remaining stragglers into true believers once and for all.

title: Bob Dylan: No Direction Home 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Liam Clancy, John Cohen, Allen Ginsberg, Mickey Jones, Al Kooper, Bruce Langhorne, Harold Leventhal, Mitch Miller, Maria Muldaur, Bob Neuwirth, D.A. Pennebaker, Pete Seeger, Dave Van Ronk, Peter Yarrow, director: Martin Scorsese DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh “Bob Dylan: No Direction Home” is not going to give you a new and previously unseen viewpoint into this pivotal artist’s life. So if you’re simply dying to know who Dylan’s either spurned or slept with over the years, you’d better move along and point your mental browser elsewhere. But if you have even the slightest interest in the multiple societal factors that have aligned themselves with this unique artist’s Big Bang evolution, as well as those fortunate folks who have befriended him along the way, “No Direction Home” is a fascinating, detailed look back. Right off the bat, it should ...

title: New Order - A Collection 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: WB/Rhino MPAA rating: NR starring: New Order DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh If you just want to learn New Order’s history, or if you’re merely seeking a set of its music videos, this combined package successfully satisfies either need. These two DVDs are broken down into two sections: The first part, titled “NEW order A COLLECTION,” is simply a gathering of various New Order videos. The second, “New Order Story,” is a two-hour-plus documentary on the band. Together, it adds up to all the visual/auditory New Order anybody likely needs.

title: English Beat: In Concert At The Royal Festival Hall 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: Secret Films MPAA rating: NR starring: English Beat DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh When you break it right down, there’s nothing particularly English about The English Beat. You may recall how the group was once lumped in with the whole ska movement back in the ‘80s, mainly because it was on the 2 Tone Records label, along with The Specials and The Selector. But if you listen closely, you hear very little actual ska (which is not exactly a British export in the first place) in the group’s songs. For instance, the only horn player in this outfit is the ancient Saxa, who would much rather play mellow jazz than skanking beats anyhow. Furthermore, the group’s repertoire contains a bounteous supply of reggae – both fast and slow – as well as other dance grooves. But no matter the style, all ...
