When the DVD first arrived, my initial thoughts were that quality of the sleeve and disc printing were not exactly top notch - didn't look very different to the DVDs you would buy at a Bangkok street market, but as soon as I put the disc in the player all that was forgotten, met by a collection of Kate's performances which are very hard to find. The quality is a little inconsistent throughout, the `Hammer Horror' video in particular was not the best. So, a very welcome collection of Kate videos - which is well worth buying. And in case you're wondering, I think the only video which is also on the "And So Is Love" DVD is the live performance of `Running Up That Hill' (on stage at the London Palladium with Dave Gilmour) - so why not get both !
Includes the two versions of the "Don't Give Up" videos made by Godley & Creme .... The one with Kate cuddling Peter Gabriel, and the other one with their faces super-imposed over a film of some townsfolk in times of despair.
Interestingly, this product also includes "The Line, The Cross & The Curve" which was a 44 minute film Kate made back in 1993, hard to find a non VHS version these days. Along with a mono-brow'd Miranda Richardson as the mysterious Red Shoes dancer, Kate performs the six songs listed above intertwined with a short story. Her acting is not quite on a par with her singing, but the quality of this part of the `Rolling' DVD is very good, - Kate singing Moments of Pleasure on a large modern flat screen TV looks sensational.
