EXCELLENT REMASTERIZATION AND GOOD DVD!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best of [Deluxe CD+DVD] (Audio CD)I've never seen home videos from ash before. In the documentary you'll find videos about how the band begun their musical career and the first tours and concerts in UK, USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, etc summarize. There are many funny situations. I hoped to see ALL the music videos by Ash BUT the videos for 'There's a Star', 'Renegade Cavalcade', 'Envy', 'Jesus Says', 'Warmer Than Fire' and 'Candy' are missing!, how could this happened?? well, anymay, the work on remasterization is excellent, all the tracks are well played and they sound great. The item case is very well too, it has inside 2 sides (one for the CD, and the other for the DVD) It looks like a single disc case.
This edition (CD+DVD) is a 'must to have' for the fans that knew ash from the middle of their career and you'll find the hits in a very well made compilation.
I hope, in the furute, Rhino or Warner launch a Blu-ray disc with ALL the videos. It'd be a 5 star review.

Some of the videos are missing as they wouldn't have had enough space on the DVD to include all of them as well as the documentary.

First of all, let me say that I like Ash - they are one of my favourite bands.
But...if the videos which you list in your review are missing from the the package, then it's incomplete. In truth, I think that Ash's videos rarely did justice to the songs, but the one outstanding exception to this rule is 'Candy'. And if that's missing, then it's a crime. I have a real soft spot for that track - precisely because it is a largely successful attempt to blend the Bacharach/David epic, 'Make It Easy On Yourself', with their own style. And the video for 'Candy' - which, stylistically, was clearly drawn from Robert Altman's film 'Nashville' - is a stunning piece of work.
What a shame.
I shall have to think long and hard before buying this package.
