On its original (cinematic and video) release this film was more or less declared to be the "Greatest Concert Film" ever made. And so it is. Prince and his 1987 entourage whiz, slide, jump, bounce and sleaze around the stage during the 14 songs covered. There was a new energy at work in Prince's live shows at this point, having recently ditched his Revolution band the year before. For fans new sidekicks and cohorts were introduced, with Shelia E now on drums, Boni Boyer on keyboards and supporting vocals and the frenetic Cat (Glover) providing enough bump and grind for everyone.
So its a treat to realise that with this DVD release the sound and picture have been brought right up to current day standards. This is no small feat given the age of the material. The sound is fantastic, mixed into Dolby Digital 5.1 format, which will give your surrounds and sub woofer a good work out.
Essential for Prince fans.
Perhaps someone will see fit to do a similar job on the following years Lovesexy Live concerts?
Other highlights include the formidable I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man; You Got The Look; If I Was Your Girlfriend; a cool cover of Charlie Parker "Now’s the Time" and a swift rendition of his classic Little Red Corvette.
Arguably his best album, already stormingly great on vinyl have a new life breathed into them.
Go buy it.
Well go on then.
It's a brilliant concert, however, we forget that we didn't have HD TV back then, so the whilst the music sounds great, the picture quality isn't anywhere near today's hi-res standard.
However, it's still brilliant to watch if you're a Prince fan.
But it feels like a self-aggrandizing overstatement to say it is it "the greatest concert movie ever made", up there with Jonathan Demme's sleek Stop Making Sense and Martin Scorsese's elegiac The Last Waltz. It is about as authentic as Tin Lizzie's Live And Dangerous. Why? It was originally intended to consist of live material filmed over four nights in 1987 in Rotterdam and Antwerp. However, the footage from these concerts was deemed unsatisfactory, because of technical difficulties. Consequently, the live performance was reshot at Prince's Paisley Park Studios. (According to saxophonist Eric Leeds around 80% of the final film was actually drawn from the Paisley Park reshoot.) That has resulted in a film that was obviously assembled in a hurry, and its seams show. Perhaps that was behind the decision to intercut concert footage with brief dramatic sketches featuring Prince, and his large backing band, performing in front of a seedy downtown stage set.Read more ›
