Classic Album: Rumours

Fleetwood Mac

Year: 1998

Runtime: 60 min

Oh, the heartache. Oh, the drug intake. And oh, the sales records they did break. It's all here in this 70-minute, 1997 chronicle of the making of one of pop music's biggest albums ever, Rumours. All five members of Fleetwood Mac's most successful incarnation are interviewed, and their comments are even more candid than the confessional songs ("Dreams," "Go Your Own Way" et al.) on the album itself; descriptions of the torturous process of making a record while John and Christine McVie's marriage and the Lindsey Buckingham- Stevie Nicks liaison were breaking up at the same time makes for compelling, if slightly discomfiting, viewing. Meanwhile, lest one forget that Rumours was terrific as well as revealing, plenty of attention is paid to the songs. Particularly fascinating (as with most Classic Albums packages) are the breakdowns of the separate instrumental and vocal components of individual tracks. A great tale, wonderfully told.

It finds the adequate rhythm to portray the drives of different persons who have left everything behind them, and now keep forging ahead irrevocably. The magic to be found a gaze, the concealed beauty of an ordinary town or the sheer greatness of the insignificant are the overarching notions and ideas of this film.

Year: 2015

Runtime: 50 min

Hosted by Diego Luna, the Unplugged album features collaborations with an international crew of stars including Carla Morrison, La Mala Rodríguez, Banda Los Recoditos, Voz de Mando and Beto Zapata (Grupo Pesado). The first single, “A Donde Van Los Muertos?” featuring Carla Morrison debuted #1 upon its release in Mexico. Kinky originally formed in the musically diverse and culturally rich scene of Monterrey, Mexico. More than 10 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the LAMC, where they ended up winning the conference's prestigious "LAMC Discovery Contest." The band has received multiple Latin Grammy nominations for their unique and innovative blend of electronic and alternative rock and has been established as a global touring band. Kinky's self-titled debut album received rave reviews from both international and national press. The album featured massive hit songs and much-synched classics such as "Mas" and "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor.” Kinky’s music has been featured in numerous soundtracks (Man on Fire, Thirteen), TV shows (Gossip Girl, Dexter, Weeds, NCIS, Alias), TV commercials (Motorola, Taco Bell, Smirnoff Ice, Nissan, Honda), and video games like EA Sports' FIFA and Tiger Woods' PGA Tour. Their popular live shows have allowed the band to constantly tour around the world, performing at festivals such as Coachella, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands and many more. “Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” – The New York Times

Live at Montreux 1975-1993

Etta James

Year: 2012

Runtime: 1 hr 4 min

In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
Etta James, who passed away in 2012, was such a magnetic singer and presence that she was a semi-regular at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, which is pretty selective about its bills. After her crack band opens with a couple, including “Hold On, I’m Coming,” James kills on “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “I Just Wanna Make Love to You,” and several more. “Come to Mama,” indeed!

Etta James made many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival across her long and distinguished career from her first concert in 1975 through to her last in 2008. This film focuses on the concert from 1993 when she was at her absolute peak and complements it with selected tracks from many other Montreux appearances. It features many of her best loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with. Etta James was one of the most respected performers of her generation. In a career stretching over 60 years she was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame, won 3 Grammys and received many more nominations and was named Female Blues Artist Of The Year on no less than 14 occasions. Sadly, Etta James passed away after a long illness in January 2012 and this film is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century.

Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert

Celine Dion

Year: 2008

Runtime: 1 hr 42 min

Freed from her long-term Las Vegas engagement in 2007, Celine Dion took a similar spectacle on the road to support her 2007 album Taking Chances. The Concert offers a souvenir of said tour, editing together highlights from late summer 2008 stints in Boston and Montreal. Celine throws an occasional curve ball -- her soul parade at the end of the show veers on high camp as she sings far too much James Brown for her own good -- but, as always, she gives the people what they want via a recitation of the expected hits in arrangements so splashy they sparkle even without the visuals. If this doesn't sound like a good time, well, you're not the audience -- this is for the fans and they will be pleased.

With these musicians' sympathetic and syncopated support, Davis's trademarked Harmon-muted trumpet tones dance and trance over the combo's supple electric swing. Throughout the concert, Davis glides across the stage with the elegance and power of a dancer and a fighter, huddling with his sidemen to play and share a phrase. Interview snippets with Davis feature the trumpeter frankly discussing his other passion, artwork. All told, Miles in Munich shows that the man called "Prince of Darkness" was full of artistic light near the end of his creative life.

Live in Amsterdam

Toto

Year: 2002

Runtime: 1 hr 44 min

Toto may be past its prime as a multi-platinum recording band, but Live in Amsterdam offers abundant proof that their performances are as electrifying as ever. Recorded in Amsterdam's Heineken Music Hall on February 17, 2003, near the end of Toto's 25th anniversary world tour, this dynamic concert serves as a cheerful reminder that Toto have been alive and well and recording steadily since 1978. The band's 2002 release Through the Looking Glass was an album of covers, two of which are welcomed here: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is a prime showcase for guitarist Steve Lukather, and "Bodhisattva" is a tight, meticulous tribute to Toto's original drummer, the late Jeff Porcaro, and his classic sessions with Steely Dan. The mega-hits "Africa," "Rosanna," and "Hold the Line" are perfectly executed, and in a band full of talented singers, lead vocalist Bobby Kimball sounds better than ever. Two impressive medleys show the band in full gear as a comfortable unit of seasoned professionals, highlighted by impeccable work from keyboardist David Paich, bassist Mike Poracaro, and ace drummer Simon Phillips (who also produced and mixed this recording for this program). And while 35 minutes of Porcaro's backstage home-video might seem frivolous, it shows a band that's still having fun, as reflected in the beaming smiles of their appreciative Amsterdam audience.
