MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #552.184!
Toto – Falling In Between Live
(Eagle Vision) :: Why does the singer look like Burton Cummings?
– Live In Central Park 1979 (Eagle Vision) :: Need proof that they’re better than Neil Young?
– Live (MVD Visual) :: Beyond primitive or beyond belief?
– A Tribute To Edith Piaf (Eagle Vision) :: Doesn’t anyone speak English anymore?
DeVille – Live At Montreux 1982 (Eagle Vision) :: Since when does playing thirty seconds
of “Harlem Nocturne” qualify you to play a jazz festival?
Earth, Wind &
Fire – In Concert 1981 (Eagle Vision) :: And you thought Labelle had a cornball costumed
Gillan – The Glory Years (Eagle Vision) :: If this compilation
stands tall with lotsa live fun from 1981 and a buncha bonus Euro TV vids, then why is it so short?
Boys – Return Of The Living Dead Boys: Halloween Night 1986 (MVD Visual) :: Do two versions
of “Sonic Reducer” and an intro by Joseph Ramone atone for Stiv’s Nazi uniform?
Metheny Group – Imaginary Day Live (Eagle Vision) :: Should I say “So What”
if this 10-year-old film contains a surfeit of slo-mo, blurry special effects and mini box split screens that does the music
a decidedly dated disservice?
Metric – Live At Metropolis
(Last Gang) :: Does Euro disco syntho electro pop done 20 years too late rate?
– Live At Montreux 1996 (Eagle Vision) :: Not exactly Duke Ellington Live At Carnegie Hall, is it?
PLATTERS OF THE WEEK: Stray Cats – Rock Therapy & Blast Off (Hep Cat) ::
If you only know the name Brian Setzer from his big band Yuletide excursions, then there’s no questioning the fact that
these two must-have reissues—which originally hail from ’86 and ’89—are what you been a-missin’,
oh boy. The buoyant bouffant energy and oily enthusiasm that oozes outta these rockabilly records like a tube of Brylcreem
slowly squished under the rumblin’ wheels of a Ed “Big Daddy” Roth customized classic is nothing short of
Be seeing you!
