A different reissue DVD
on 18 September 2010
Brilliant performance by The Everly Brothers of their reunion from 27 years ago.
This reissued DVD by Eagle Vision is a completely different from the first release some years ago. As the concert was originally recorded over 22nd/23rd September 1983 different song performances were edited together. In this DVD version it's the same lineup though for some reason 'So sad (to watch good love go bad) has been ommitted but additional songs: Medley-Take a message to Mary/Maybe tomorrow, I wonder if I care as much and Temptation have been included.
This DVD also includes a bonus feature: Highlights of a video called 'Rock 'N' Roll Odyssey' released in 1984 during The Everly Brothers reunion concert. The original video was 75 mins and on this DVD it has been cutdown to 45 mins. All the original full length songs, clips from TV shows have been ommitted as well as others, though tiny snippets are included. The relevent interviews with the Everly Brothers are intact. I have the original video to compare with which is brilliant but this bonus feature highlights have been heavly cut. But despite this the documentary is still great viewing. The picture quality is just slighty upgraded than the original VHS version.
In the 'rock 'n' roll odyssey' documentary watch out for the different 'Alternative Date' complete performance of 'Let It Be Me' from the reunion concert at the end of the programme.
This is a great DVD package, though it would be nice to see the full lengh version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Odyssey' on DVD with all those historical full length clips intact.
