Well, there you go! on this tape you'll find most of the best skid row videos. This tape is definetely one of my favorite. The tape only includes music videos and no backstage action, although the song "in a darkened room" is half studio-recorded and half live....pretty cool.
Of course, as all skid row fans should know, skid row is uncomparable on stage and as well as totally reccomending this tape, the "oh, say can you scream" is 100% live, and is well worth every dime. Most songs are from the "Slave to the grind" album but as a special bonus we get a Jimi Hendrix cover "little wing". This has to be the BEST cover of this song I have ever heard, as Sebastian once again proves who is the real king.
Skid Row rulez.

5.0 out of 5 stars SKID ROW'S "NO FRILLS"...JUST GREAT MUSIC! 21 Feb. 1999
By Antoinette Avalon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This video is a must have for any Skid Row fan. It isn't as long as the Skids other two videos, "Oh Say Can You Scream" and "Roadkill" since it is videos not live shots, but it rocks! The tracks are "Monkey Business", "Wasted Time", "Slave To The Grind", "Quicksand Jesus", and "In A Darkened Room" from the "Slave To The Grind" album. You also get "Psycho Therapy" (Rachel Bolan, the bass player, takes the microphone for this one!) and "Little Wing" from the EP "B-Side Ourselves". If you enjoy this video, you really should check out the other two Skid Row videos as well. You can also still obtain the albums "Skid Row", "Slave To The Grind", "Subhuman Race" and Sebastian Bach's (Skid's vocalist) solo record "Bring 'Em Bach Alive". All of the above mentioned are at this time available right here on Amazon.com!
4.0 out of 5 stars No frills but a few thrills 27 Nov. 2007
By Paul Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
To my mind this scores four stars for a couple of very simple reasons. Firstly this was a very good way of getting all the Skid Row from the Slave to the Grind album and B-side Ourselves EP on video. The idea of the title is very apt as there is absolutely no allegedly funny backstage rubbish to wade through to get to the good bits. Quite simply you just get the video clips and that's all you should really need with a band that were one of the most successful hard rockin' bands of the late 80's.

The package itself lasts for 40 minutes though somehow manages to feel longer probably because of the quality of not only the songs but the videos. The videos for Slave to the Grind and Psycho Therapy aren't much, even if the former is one of the most vicious metallic cuts of the bands career in terms of grinding guitars and the latter is a fun little cover. But where this release really kicks is the excellent songs - and attendant videos - of the three disturbing slower cuts, these being Wasted Time, Quicksand Jesus and In A Darkened Room. All three - as Martin Popoff wrote in his debut book Riff Kills Man - `taking you to dark places where concern collides with worry'. And the video clips for them are excellent pieces of work.

The release is fleshed out by Monkey Business (good song, so-so video clip) and Little Wing (purists may cringe but it's OK). These two tracks make up the numbers but aren't awesome.

Complaints are very few, this doesn't claim to be a definitive band history or anything like that, just a tie in VHS release of the relevant clips. Taken as such it is a very good buy for any fan of loud `n' proud hard rock/metal. Playing the three `ballads' will probably alter the opinions of anyone thinking metal is brainless for starters. Tiny issues are the fact that it would of been good to get ALL their video clips to date here, so you wouldn't have to buy Oh Say Can You Scream. And the track listing is in the wrong order, at least on my copy.

Other than that this is one of the few videos I'd recommend to purchasers.

It's a blast!!! Not for kids, but a great look at the band before they lost their minds and fired the best darned rock singer, (Sebastian Bach) since Freddy Mercury and Robert Plant!!! Fans of Baz's rule of Skid Row must see it!!
