Product Description

An in-depth profile of the pop career of Duran Duran, including the videos 'Planet Earth', 'Girls On Film' and 'Rio'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Greatest is a Duran Duran fan's biggest wish come true (next to a live concert, of course)--all their ground-breaking videos together in one place. More than radio, MTV made mega-stars out of the photogenic group, and few took better advantage of the medium, particularly in the 1980s. Just as their music combined the sophisticated pop of Roxy Music with the electro-funk of Chic, each video is as immaculately styled and conceived as the band itself.

Like 1998's Greatest CD collection, this two-DVD set features all their big hits, including uncensored versions of "Girls on Film" and "Come Undone". Directors include Godley and Creme, Julien Temple, and Vogue photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and the albums covered range from 1981's self-titled debut to 1997's Medazzaland. All told: more models, more hair spray and more mascara than a Paris fashion show--but it's got a better beat (and you can dance to it). --Kathleen C Fennessy

As for the difficulty of finding the extras, here's what you do if you, like me, have no patience to navigate through the DVD. Hit the "Stop" button twice on your player and simply enter the track number of whatever you want to see. Why bother going on an "easter egg hunt"?
• Go to Union of the Snake on the sub menu, hit the left arrow key, press play or enter on your remote and view the Dancing on the Valentine version.
• Once you have played the first default version of New Moon on Monday, reselecting the video gives you a different version. Similarly, reselecting the uncensored Girls on Film reveals an alternate ending. Ditto Wild Boys for another version.
• Enter Le Galerie de Duran by clicking the 'A' in the word 'GREATEST' on the main menu. This pulls up a gallery featuring the group's album covers and singles sleeves.
When the Planet Earth single sleeve is enlarged, go to the bottom single sleeve (Girls on Film) and press the left arrow button. This takes you to a ''hot spot.'' Press play or enter.
• On the Girls on Film (Short Censored Version) clip, click to enlarge the sleeve. Go to the Play screen icon and press remote's play/enter.
• A Day in the Life featurette is available by highlighting the third single sleeve down while an album sleeve is enlarged. Hit right arrow key and then play/enter.
• While the Seven and the Ragged Tiger sleeve is enlarged, press the up arrow key, then play/enter to hear the band discuss the 1983 LP.
• Watch bandmates chat about the Wild Boys clip by pressing the up arrow key next to the screen's Play icon when its sleeve is enlarged. Hit play/enter. The group's John and Andy Taylor discuss the 007 View to a Kill clip, too.

Format: DVD
Like Michael Jackson and Madonna, Duran Duran benefited from MTV as muchas MTV benefited from them. In the 1980s, they were the premier videoband, specializing in high concept music clips that represented the excessand decadence of that decade. By today's standards, many of their videosmay seem cheesy and dated, but they brilliantly captured the essence ofDuran Duran and the new romantic movement to which they belonged. Finally,the videos of their hits are compiled on this DVD, and it's alreadygetting complaints from many fans. To them, I say: CALM DOWN. Of course,it'd be great to have a DVD featuring ALL of their music videos, but thatwasn't the intent or concept behind "Greatest." Capitol/EMI wanted to do a"Greatest" DVD collection with the same tracklisting of the "Greatest" CD(with two exceptions: this collection has a video to "The Chauffeur" and"Burning the Ground," which are not featured on the CD). Fans have alsocomplained that the hidden bonus features are very difficult to access,and they're right. I spent several minutes clicking my remote to navigatemy way towards certain interviews and extended videos and ended up quitefrustrated. However, if you go to the band's official website and go tothe "Ask Katy" section, you'll find a list of helpful tips to get to thebonus features. Trust me, it's easier than you think. Some of the hiddenfeatures include an 18 minute version of "New Moon on Monday," an extendedversion of "Wild Boys," a club video of "Planet Earth" (this one inparticular is a hoot), and other promo clips dating as far back as theearly 1980s. While I would have liked a DVD featuring omitted videos like"Careless Memories," "Meet El Presidente," and "Lonely in Your Nightmare,"I'm still pleased that I grabbed "Greatest." Yes, the price is a bitsteep, but the videos bring back lots of welcome 1980s memories, and thebonus features are fun to watch once you're able to find them.

Format: DVD
The success of Duran Duran and the music video format are inextricably linked, going back to the launch of MTV, some 20 years ago. Duran Duran unleashed the incredible power of this new medium when they became the first band to create videos that were more like mini-movies than promotional music clips. Duran Duran shunned blue screens and smoke machines for the mis-en-scene of exotic locations and extravagant sets. "Rio," "Wild Boys," and "Hungry Like The Wolf" were as much adventure films as a vehicle for the music. The success of their videos and the universal appeal of the songs that they wrote made Duran Duran international superstars and established MTV as the purveyor of cultural cool.
These videos, and more, will be available on DVD when Capitol Records releases Duran Duran The Greatest DVD video anthology. The 2-DVD collection brings together all the videos from Duran Duran's years with EMI and Capitol records (1981-1994). Every video from their debut "Planet Earth" to "Come Undone" is included, along with uncensored versions, alternate cuts and select press interviews.
Every Duran Duran video was an epic visual romp through the styles, fashions and sounds of the time, from the new-wave synth riffs of "The Chauffer" to the innovative acid house beats of "All She Wants Is," or the epic balladry of "Ordinary World." Also included on the collection are the now legendary uncensored versions of "Girls On Film" and "Come Undone."
This DVD also contains extras with alternate versions of the videos marked * along with interview footage, EPK's, La Galerie De Duran and a DVD-ROM section.
DVD 1: 1. Planet Earth * / 2. Girls On Film (long uncensored version) * / 3. The Chauffeur / 4. Hungry Like The Wolf / 5. Save A Prayer / 6. Rio / 7. Is There Something I Should Know? / 8.
