Somehow after reading the reviews I figured that this would be the video collection with interview from Scott, Tucker and Connolly from 1989, which I used to have on VHS years ago (I really would like to have it on DVD but it doesn't seem to be available - if it is, I would be grateful if someone pointed me to it). This film, from 2006 is OK. It's not great though. I have never been a great fan of narrators in rock documentaries, especially when they sound like they are not really that interested in what they are narrating. The narrator's text is rushed and quite superficial. For a separate DVD I expected something more detailed. The cuts from the interviews by Chinn and Wainman and even Scott seem quite superficial too, with rare exceptions. I wanted more story! As for the music clips, very disappointing too. For one, some songs are included in full, and some are cut off for no apparent reason. Also, Sweet fans will know that there is a handful of video versions for each big hit available, and the choices for this DVD are frankly the worst one could think of. And as for the quality of the clips, I have seen better resolution and clearer image of the same clips on youtube!
All of the above sounds quite negative, but I did enjoy the dvd nonetheless. Since there are so few classic Sweet DVD products around, a fan has to appreciate everything that's available.
