5.0 out of 5 stars Words are not enough, 26 Jan. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Strange World Of Northern Soul [DVD] (DVD)
Annoying,tacky,overdone,amaturish, poorly produced oh and annoying.
What am i talking about? Ian Levine? his recordings? Could be.
But in this instance it's those awful visual effects put around every artists on these dvds. They cheapen the performances given by these hallowed artists as do the some of the appalling electronic music used to back said artisits.The miming of some acts is terrible.I personall y think it would have been better to show interviews with the artists whilst playing the original track, but thats jusy my 2ps worth.
BUT IF YOU LOVE NORTHERN SOUL BUY THIS SET.If you never buy anything else in your life again buy this set of dvds.
The memories that the music evoke and the fact that a lot of the performers(some that i have met personally over the years) are now departed,literally brought me to tears.
Putting faces to names of singers whose material i've loved for 35 years, to see the joy in those faces when they realised that they had huge amounts of fans in the U.K. was truly amazing.
The sheer number of classic soul tracks contained in this set is enormous.
Mr. Levine has been critisised by many people(including myself) over the years,and indeed this project could have been done more professionally, BUT, there is no doubt of Ian's love and dedication to the music we all know and love ourselves.
This is shown in the interviews for U.S. t.v. and the obvious pride in accepting an award from the Myor of Detroit.
Thank you Ian for making a grown man cry............
To ALL northern soul fans out there BUY THIS, you won't regret it.
Keep the faith.

Would you still say the same if you knew that not one of the US artists [or cameramen etc...] got paid - or even a complimentary dvd for their 'efforts' in making this rubbish?
I`ve been in touch with David L Brown a producer/label owner & part owner of funkadelphia in the us over the last few months who got most of the us artists together for this & your 'blessed' Mr Levine left nothing but bills & mayhem when he left!
