4.0 out of 5 stars Stone Roses DVD 5 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
And yes, with the invention of DVD's Silvertone records find a new way of squeezing that little bit more money from the Roses' corpse. For the uninformed Silvertone records release a new Roses product every year or so. A new compilation? Done that. A new version of the debut album with slightly different sleeve? Oh yes. A new single of an old album track? Several times. How about a remix album? Now they release the two old Roses videos "the Complete" and "Blackpool Live" in one DVD package. For the record the band receive absolutely nothing from any Silvertone product. Most people will agree that this isn't very fair.
The Blackpool Live DVD is a pretty poorly filmed document of one of their finest gigs. The DVD has been slightly remastered and it's not quite as dark or muffled as the video but it still fails to capture the magic of what must have been an earth shattering event. Ian Brown was never one of the best live singers and this does the band no favours. If you were there it didn't matter that Ian wasn't singing in tune or John wouldn't turn his flanger pedal off. But on DVD it is all rather trying to watch. The Blackpool gig is worth watching once as a valuable record of the Roses live, but it won't be watched over and over like DVD2.
The second DVD contains most of the "Complete Stone Roses" video and here lies the real value of the DVD. There's Fools Gold on TOTP, the Rapido interview, the "Amateurs! Amateurs!" performance on the Late Show and lots more. There's even MY GOD! a few seconds of home video footage Silvertone haven't released before! Surprisingly here's a few things missing - notably the She Bangs the Drums video and the Fools Gold Video. I guess Silvertone must be saving them for the DVD volume two along with some Ian Brown toenail clippings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silvertone cash in - but its well worth it 7 Aug 2004
Format:DVD
After finding to a dusty cassette of Waterfall aged 11, the Roses have always been my favourite band. They just have that special aura, that few else possesed. So I now have just about everything they released apart from a DVD. Until now...
It was only a matter of time before Silvertone got with the times and released a long overdue DVD of the Roses. Surely one of the only major bands upto this point without one.
So, obviously its another attempt from the labels to cash in on the legendary status of the Roses (avoid all 'Greatest Hits packages like the plague), but to be fair there is a lot of footage I had never seen before.
Originally I thought it was just the Blackpool gig, but there is much more on show. Some fairly amatuerish (late show clip anyone ?) videos from the late 80's are in, mainly live shows on tape, and dodgy purple graphics !
The sound on the gig is better than I expected, and does capture some the magic of the time. Being born five years too late, I missed them first time around, becoming a fan during their, in my opinion, underatted comeback album and tour. All the classics are there, plus 'Where Angels Play', my favourite although not that well known.
The extras are very interesting. Two songs at the Hacienda, the smarmy Wilson apologising that he had thought they were crap, then jumping on teh bandwagon, and a hilarious Ian/John interview where the phrase 'blood from a stone' is very apt !
Also some home film footage showing making that classic album which was unexpected but valuable.
Overall, a must have for any fan and any other music fan who likes good tunes !

5.0 out of 5 stars essential! 30 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
With their breathtaking debut album, The Stone Roses made my favourite record of all time. Unfortunately I was too far away (and a bit too young) to "be there" at the Roses' peak around 1989/90, so this DVD makes really essential viewing, not only the famous Blackpool gig and the videos, also legendary TV appearances("A-ma-teurs! A-ma-teurs!")and priceless extras (Brown-Squire interview!). An absolute must for Roses fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stone Roses DVD 15 Mar 2008
By Bjorn
Format:DVD
I resisted the temptation to buy this DVD for a long time, mainly due to not wanting to line the pockets of Silvertone, but I've thought long and hard, and the sad demise of the Stone Roses was down to a lot more than just their legal wrangle with Silvertone. Drugs (allegedly), egos, poor management, and the band's own naivety meant that the Stone Roses were never going to be around for long. Whether you or I buy this DVD or not won't bring the Roses back, and as for lining Silvertone's pockets, well, they've put together a nice little package which you're not going to get from anyone else. Is is worth the money?

The main feature, the Blackpool Empress Ballroom gig, is great, with the sound and picture quality better than I expected. The band play a blinder. Admittedly Ian's vocals aren't brilliant (they never were) but it doesn't matter, he is a superb frontman and it's easy to see where Liam Gallagher gets, well, everything from! John Squire's guitar work is excellent throughout, sometimes steeped in effects and sometimes bright and jangly, but always purposeful and moody. Mani and Reni hold it all together with that definative tight but loose 'baggy' feel (as a drummer it always amazes me what Reni could do with one snare, one tom and a bass but that's a whole other topic!) The highlight has to be 'I am the Resurrection', or more specifically, the instrumental second half, it doesn't get much better than this. It was interesting to note how little interaction there was between the members of the band during the gig, very little in the way of glances, smiles, chat... yet musically, they were one. And what about Cressa, the Roses' dancer/effects tech guy(?) I'd all but forgotten about him!

As for the rest of the DVD content, it's all good.
