Great DVD, shame about the bonus material,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Happened: Live at the Scala [CD+DVD] (Audio CD)
I love Claudia Brucken. From when Propaganda first came out through her solo album and collaboration with Thomas Leer and One Two. Her voice is wonderfully rich and exotic and, for me, is reminiscent of the 30s Weimar Kabarett singers. I was lucky enough to meet her briefly when she came to the recording studio I was working at to record Baby Sigh on her solo album and I have seen her live with OneTwo when they supported Human League a couple of years ago. Therefore, I was very keen to get this DVD as I really wanted to see her sing all of her classic songs live, together with guest singers. The concert is great and all the hits are here and more. I loved the duets with Glen Gregory who is always a star but, for me, the highlights were the Propaganda songs with Susan Freytag and Snobbery and Decay which is one of my all time faves. The DVD also comes with a CD so you can listen to it all in the car too which is great. My only slight disappointment with the DVD is the bonus material which is just a series of behind the scenes photos with one of the live songs as a background. Not that this is a major problem but I would have loved to have seen a proper interview with Claudia or a documentary on her career. Oh well, maybe next time.
