This DVD is, in effect, two films: a seventy-five minute documentary from c.1985, and a ninety-minute concert from 1990. In addition, there is a useful thirty-five minute interview in 2005 with music producer Chris Hughes, who analyses the work he did for the group almost on a track-by-track basis and also describes how the nature of albums from vinyl to CD has changed the contours of track-listing.

First, the documentary, titled `Scenes from the Big Chair'. This features interviews, concert material, extracts from videos, and general behind-the-scenes footage. Orzabal and Smith, along with Ian Stanley and Manny Elias, explain the origins of the band and the meanings of some of its early songs. Orzabal especially comes over as a reticent, thoughtful and measured man but with a playful sense of humour. He (and Chris Hughes in his separate interview) put paid to what I had believed from reading elsewhere that the group had concentrated on the `money hits' on the `Songs from the Big Chair' album at the expense of the rest of the set.

The concert film from 1990 is entitled `Going to California'. It has annoying quick-fire editing that mixes colour shots with monochrome. It also experiments with a number of distorting filters. Nevertheless, everyone on stage is in fine form. There are the usual renditions of hit material but also inflected with rock, soul, jazz, and blues.

Overall, then, this DVD comprises a fair amount of material on one of the biggest and best groups from the 1980s, and who are still producing some fine work today.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
To put it quite simply, if you're a fan of Tears For Fears this dvd is a must. It contains the original "Scenes From The Big Chair" tour film, first released on VHS in 1985/6. That in itself is a very good excuse to purchase. As added incentive, you also have the amazing "Going To California" concert filmed at the Santa Barbara County Bowl. Unlike "Scenes From The Big Chair", this is a complete show which also features the amazing piano and vocal talents of Oleta Adams. She was featured very prominently on their third album "The Seeds Of Love" and having her share the stage with TFF is a revelation. Not only does she sing the tracks from The Seeds of Love on which she contributed, she also lends a hand with other TFF classics and gets to have her own moment in the spotlight. As I said at the start of this review, if you're a TFF fan and you don't own a copy of this dvd, it's a must have.

"You Better Love Lovin' And You Better Behave..."

Also recommended Oleta's music cd's..There is "The Very Best Of Oleta Adams" available but the stand-out album in her catalogue for me is her Roland Orzabal produced debut "Circle Of One".

OMG. if you are a fan of these boys you will love this. I am rediscovering this band and my roaring twenties memories came flooding back! this dvd is a must if you like their music of course, but I love the interviews with the affable Curt and the humour of Roland. there is some behind the scenes footage , live performances and videos. the best bit for me was the making of the "Head over heels" video in Torronto Library. I have fallen totally in love with them again.
also with the DVD is a live concert from California around 1990. I have never seen these boys live but now i SO want to!

Not a massive fan of the band myself, my girlfriend loves them though. Watched this, and now I get why.

Absolute phenomenal voices, great song writing, and cool to see the human side of pop stars. Even those interested in a music career can learn a lot from this, with a great live performance to end with.

I had this as a VHS when it first came out, and loved it then, now 30 odd years later its still brilliant (even if the the transfer to DVD isn't great)
