5.0 out of 5 stars Music, comedy, tragedy, irony 8 Jan 2004
Format:DVD
The second series of Rock Follies charts the Little Ladies' progress from near-collapse to disintegration. It isn't an uninterrupted downhill slide: there are ups (edged with irony) and downs (usually with some humour or a good song). As in the first series the story is told through straight drama and the Little Ladies' songs, some sung as performances, some as fantasy.
Things start optimistically when the group embrace the spin of a "ferret-faced reporter": "Even we believed the lie - We're the band who wouldn't die". They go on tour with Stevie Streeter (Tim Curry - excellent), then make a management deal with Kitty Schreiber (Beth Porter in a funny caricature) that leads to a record, press junkets and more touring, this time with a Punk band. There are flashes of success, good and bad luck, pain, jealousy, anger. On the way they cross paths with an array of British acting talent, including Ian Charleston, Denis Lawson and Bob Hoskins.
The Little Ladies are up against the rest of the world, but their main problems are with each other. Julie Covington's Dee, Charlotte Cornwell's Anna and Rula Lenska's Q ostensibly represented lower, middle and upper classes at the start of the first series, but they are now real individuals and it is their personalities that spark, not their backgrounds. Q's facade of camp (in the first series) has been stripped to reveal her as vulnerable and lovable. Anna, increasingly threatened by Dee's talent, heads for a breakdown, aided by the ready supply of drugs from her lover, Angel. Dee is the only one who finds real success, in a revamped Little Ladies that excludes the other two, yet she too is damaged by the destruction of the group.

4.0 out of 5 stars rock follies 2 12 May 2012
By anny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is not how I remembered it, I saw Elastica live and they were much more but I found it good. I remembered Julie Covington with Sue Jones Davis & thought they were good together. In the 70's there was not much better except Julie Driscoll. I think it was a good buy.
