When I saw the track list and saw vintage Fleetwood Mac from the Danny Kirwan era, Muddy Waters, and Eric Burdon & War, I was "in". I didn't mind the "lesser" bands and lesser known songs too much, because as a collector, sometimes you find interesting gems you didn't even know about. I have another music DVD from the Classic Pictures company, and I found it to be of very high quality video and sound wise (Rockin In the USA).
These obviously come from the German TV series "Musikladen". For those of us who already collected the volumes of Musikladen, there are only a couple of repeats here, like Alice Cooper's "Eighteen" and BTO's "Hey You". The Alice Cooper is the original band but Alice seems too drunk to even stand up, and sits down on the stage for the whole performance (yeah, that one).
Video quality is good, all color except Joe Cocker, and sound quality is pretty good for live TV from the era. The surround sound isn't bad. All seem to be live.
Too many psychedelic camera effects marr the disk. I didn't really like them even back then. Also, sometimes the camera work is annoying, with only showing one person in the band, or not showing who you want to see playing a solo, etc.
I would have enjoyed the Fleetwood Mac (with Bob Welch & Danny Kirwan) more if they wouldn't have psychelized it until the last minute. It is the ultra-rare "Dragonfly" from after the "Kiln House" era, like a dreamy single/outtake from "Future Games".
There probably isn't much video footage of Jeff Beck during the "Rough And Ready" phase (Cozy and Max), so that makes it unique for Jeff Beck fanatics.
The Chuck Berry inexplicably cuts off during a keyboard solo at the end, which is annoying because I was hoping to see who it was, like could it be Johnny Johnson? We'll never know.
The Roxy Music and Brian Ferry performances are all good, and some have Brian Eno in them like "The Strand".
The Walker Brothers competently perform the Tom Rush classic "No Regrets".
The T.Rex has too many video effects to be enjoyable.
Eric Burdon & War is a hurried-up abbreviated version of "Paint It Black". I'm sure they have "Spill The Wine" from the same show, but they're holding out on us.
The Muddy Waters is from the early 1970s. The only musician I know for sure is Willie Smith on drums. It's likely Carey Bell is playing harmonica, and Pinetop Perkins is on piano.
Upon digesting the entire disk, I have concluded that it is just fine for 1970's music buffs/collectors, or those who have to have that one video of a particular song or band you like.
I agree with another reviewer that Musikladen must have a treasure trove of video footage. We need to see more of it!
