5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series, 27 Nov. 2012
This is an excellent series presented by Sam Dunn and shown on Sky Arts here in the UK. There are 11 episodes covering the history of hard rock and heavy metal and its fragmentation into various sub genres. Even a long series like this is hard pushed to be totally comprehensive on such a vast topic and there are one or two obvious omissions (presumably due to artist availability). I'm sure everyone will also have a personal favourite that didn't make the cut for editorial reasons. Nevertheless I think the scope of the series is quite breathtaking and taken as a whole it is a considerable achievement. Perhaps most importantly, if you're a fan of rock and metal, it is an extremely enjoyable and often fascinating series. Running time is 8hrs 15 mins spread over either 3 DVDs or 2 Blu-rays. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Amazon.com reviews from the USA refer to this series being on DVD-R. This is NOT the case in the UK. These are proper authored DVD and Blu-ray discs in top notch metallic finish packaging. Both DVD and Blu-ray are region free and will play in the US too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bee Gees Documentary, 30 Nov. 2010
This review is from: In Our Own Time [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I'm a bit surprised by the reviewers comments below. I think this is an excellent documentary telling the story of the Bee Gees from start to the present day. It is based around brand new interviews with Barry and Robin, sometimes together, sometimes separately, and on extensive interviews fortuitously filmed with Maurice shortly before his sad early death. If you're a Bee Gees fan you will have undoubtedly heard some of the stories before but there was plenty that was new to me as well. The archive footage is terrific, although inevitably somewhat variable in picture quality depending on its age and again a mix of familiar and previously unseen. The film makers obviously had great sympathy with and affection for the band and have put together a beautifully crafted programme running for a little short of two hours. If you want to know more about the Bee Gees this is definitely the place to start.
Finally, this was never advertised as a Bee Gees concert so I don't know where the previous reviewer got that idea from. If you want to see the Bee Gees live then I'd go for "One Night Only" which is a brilliant concert filmed in Las Vegas in the late nineties. The Bee Gees - One Night Only [DVD] [1998] Simply unmissable for any Bee Gees fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Back On Form, 1 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Red Velvet Car (Audio CD)
"Red Velvet Car" is an excellent new album from Heart. It's definitely an album that grows on you and I think some of the other reviewers may revise their opinions if they're prepared to give it a few spins. The songwriting is very strong and the blend of acoustic and electric instruments is highly effective. It definitely owes more to Heart in the seventies than the eighties. My personal favourites are "Hey You", "Sunflower" and "Sand". It's definitely an album I'm going to keep playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Stones Film, 16 Jun. 2010
"Stones In Exile" is a fascinating documentary on the making of "Exile On Main Street". It was shown recently on BBC1. We hear from all the band members and there are contributions from many of the people who were around the Stones at the time. There's great archive footage and wonderful photographs from Dominique Tarlé, who came to Nellcôte for a day and stayed for the summer!

The bonus features (which weren't part of the BBC1 broadcast) include a great sequence of Mick and Charlie returning to Mick's old house Stargroves and to Olympic Studios in London and there are face to face interviews with each of the Stones talking in more depth about the recording of the album and what was going on around them at the time. There are also interviews with Rolling Stones fans including Martin Scorsese, Jack White, Don Was, Benicio Del Toro & Sheryl Crow among various others.

If you like the Stones, you'll love this DVD.
