  • Classic Albums: So

    Peter Gabriel

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 59 min

    The latest addition to the Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of Peter Gabriel's 1986 album 'So'. It was Gabriel's 5th solo album and the first one to have a title (the others simply being called 'Peter Gabriel'). The album spawned a number of hits including 'Sledgehammer', 'Big Time', 'Don't Give Up' (a duet with Kate Bush) and 'In Your Eyes' which drove 'So' to multi-platinum worldwide sales and No. 1 in the UK and No. 2 in the US. 'So' was very much an album of the MTV generation and the distinctive videos for tracks like 'Sledgehammer', 'Red Rain', 'Big Time' and 'Don't Give Up' were key factors in the album's success. Featuring contributions from many of those involved in the making of the album and the videos, including Peter Gabriel himself, co-producer Daniel Lanois, the sound engineer, backing musicians and many more.

  • Live in London

    The Pretenders

    Year: 2009

    Runtime: 1 hr

    "Live In London" is a live performance masterpiece that captures The Pretenders at the top of their game. If you saw them live on their 2009 tour, you'll know what I'm talking about. You owe it to yourself to get this program as a reminder of just how amazing this band is on the road.

    "Live In London" succeeds where The Pretenders' studio albums fail. They are one of those rare bands that truly does sound better when they're playing in front of an audience -- an intimate small theater crowd here.

    With all due respect to original guitarist James Honeyman Scott and bassist Pete Farndon, The Pretenders latest lineup is the best Chrissie Hynde has ever staged. With the steady pounding of original drummer Martin Chambers, newcomers James Walbourne on guitar, Nick Wilkinson on bass and Eric Heywood on pedal steel rock from start to finish, revitalizing Pretenders' classics like "Message of Love" and "Kid," while adding new ones like "Boots of Chinese Plastic" to the playlist.

    You'll be blown away by Walbourne's electrifying guitar work. It starts with the first licks of the opener "Chinese Plastic," scorches through "Rosalee," and climaxes with the show-stopper "Precious." Walbourne delivers pure, unadulterated, raw, rip-snorting rock 'n' roll. His on-stage chemistry with Hynde is self-evident.

    As per usual, Hynde's vocals are impeccable, showing great range, dynamics and emotion, equally adept at punk rockers like "The Wait" and ballads like "I'll Stand By You." This woman has earned the right to work the stage with the swagger of a rock star. She is it.

    The direction and camera work throughout "Live In London" give the viewer the perspective of being on stage with The Pretenders. Tight crops interspersed with effective wide angles make one feel like he can count the streaks of mascara multiplying on Hynde's face and see the beads of sweat building on Chambers' brow as the night rocks on.

  • Live at the Royal Albert Hall (20th Anniversary Concert)

    Culture Club

    Year: 2001

    Runtime: 1 hr 35 min

    Live at the Royal Albert Hall finds Culture Club celebrating its 20th anniversary with an infectious and expansive grandeur, all while basking in the love of adoring fans. The show actually starts with a great joke on the audience: Boy George, looking not a day over 20, glides onstage in his once-trademark derby and beaded hair extensions, delivering a warm and welcome vocal on "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" The startled crowd soon realizes he's an impersonator. The real, fortysomething George O'Dowd, looking a lot less androgynous and a tad thicker than in New Romantics days, smiles self-deprecatingly and launches into a pleasing set of white soul ("Cold Shoulder," "Miss Me Blind"), stark gospel ("That's the Way"), stirring raga-rock ("Bow Down Mister"), and even a classic (a lovely cover of Bowie's "Starman," complete with audience participation and muscular guitar by Roy Hay).

  • Live at Soundstage: Part Two

    Heart

    Year: 2004

    Runtime: 55 min

    Pt II The band Heart has gone through many manifestations since its inception in the early ‘70s, but what keeps Heart “pumping” are sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. Ann’s voice is unmistakable, and Nancy’s guitar playing is the perfect complement. On the second half of this Soundstage episode the sisters come back with a vengeance – blazing through songs like “Barracuda” and “Even it Up.” They then slow it down on the reflective “Dog and Butterfly” and “Alone.”

    Filmed at Hammersmith Apollo in March 2011, “New Blood – Live In London” captures Peter Gabriel performing live with the 46 piece New Blood Orchestra. The repertoire mixes cover versions from his “Scratch My Back” album with classic tracks from across his solo career in brand new orchestral arrangements. Gabriel is a renowned live performer and his onstage charisma and instantly recognisable voice combine brilliantly with the orchestral sound palette to breathe a new sense of wonder into familiar songs. As you would expect the concert is also a visual feast, with graphics, animation and imagery blending to enhance and illustrate the music. This is truly a live experience not to be missed.

  • Live in Athens 1987

    Peter Gabriel

    Year: 1986

    Runtime: 1 hr 57 min

    In October of 1987, after many months on the road, it was in the elevated surroundings of the hillside open-air theatre at Lycabettus overlooking Athens, that the "So" tour came to a climactic close. The three nights were filmed in what was the first-ever Peter Gabriel concert to be committed to film. As a concert film, it was brilliantly shot and has now been equally brilliantly remastered, a crystal-clear record of Gabriel and band in their mid-80s pomp. The viewer is placed right in the heart of the action all the way, from the band's synchronized choreography on opening number "This Is The Picture", right through to the skin-pricking closer "Biko". In between, we're lost in music, spellbound by the spectacle, totally absorbed by the imperfection-free tightness of a band that's been on the road for so long.

  • Live At The Royal Albert Hall 1979

    Dusty Springfield

    Year: 1978

    Runtime: 57 min

    Dusty Springfield is Britains greatest ever pop diva and the possessor of one of the finest and most soulful voices of all time. She dominated both the UK and US charts throughout the sixties with a string of hit singles that have stood the test of time as true classics. Originally a member of the folk trio The Springfields, from whom she took her stage name, she became a solo artist in 1963 after being exposed to the magic of Motown whilst playing in America and became probably the finest ever white soul singer. Diagnosed with breast cancer in the mid-nineties she died in 1999 at the age of just 59.
    This concert, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in 1979 in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret, captures Dusty at the height of her career. The show is packed with hits (including 9 UK top 10 singles), which are delivered with all the glitz and panache that were Dustys trademark and have made her a major gay icon as well as beloved of music fans everywhere.

  • One Night Only

    Bee Gees

    Year: 1997

    Runtime: 1 hr 51 min

    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 program 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.

Little wonder that Grace and her cohorts have chosen to title it, directly and emphatically, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals.
