Product Description

This DVD is NTSC all region and should play on all DVD players. Made by the same team who put together the critically acclaimed films on Arthur Lee and Love as well as the more recent Mott The Hoople documentary. Mountain Picnic Blues is a documentary on The Charlatans' 1997 LP Tellin' Stories. Featuring the hit singles 'One To Another' and 'North Country Boy', the LP was a number one hit and a creative high point for the band. The record's creation however was overshadowed by the tragic death of keyboard player Rob Collins. The documentary features interviews with all band members and tells the story of the circumstances surrounding its recording and it's completion in the aftermath of Rob Collins' death. The DVD also features the band playing the album live in its entirety, filmed this year at Glasgow Barrowlands, as part of the triumphant Tellin' Stories 15th anniversary concerts.

If your a charlatans fan of any level this is a must, a very in depth insight as to who was behind the iconic album 'Tellin Stories' the bands feelings about the classic tracks that put them on the map, very moving interviews on the tragic death of Rob Collins who sadly died in a car accident in 1996, where the band went after his death with Martin Duffy from Primal Scream coming in to help the band through the tough time, there landmark gig supporting oasis at knebworth in front of 120,000 people,very enjoyable, good work lads!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Documentary On An Excellent Album 23 May 2013
By Popgun
At just over an hour long the film covers all aspects around the making of the bands number 1 LP - Tellin' Stories. The first 10-15 minutes are a brief history of the band in order to put Tellin' Stories into context, but once on the subject matter the interviews from the band members are honest, charming and moving - particularly when talking about the death of founder member Rob Collins. Additional interviews such as Martin Duffy - who stepped in on keyboards to help finish the album and play the Knebworth gig and Heavenly PR man Robin Turner - bring insight and perspective to the film.

In truth it's been a while since I last listened to the LP, but like all great music docs - the film will make you dig out the album again and take you back to 1997.

Good work indeed.
