Movie Reviews

Second time around
C. W. Schultheis | Las Vegas | 07/06/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If your an avid Blondie fan and/or DVD collector, then chances are you already own this DVD.

This is the same performance from the Beat Club (AKA. Musik Laden) that was released several years ago with a different cover and title: "The Best of the Beat Club live: Blondie"

Not the their best performance on DVD but great if your looking into early Blondie in their pre-hits era.

This DVD contains a few visually enternaining numbers...the music is pretty good considering Blondie weren't considered the best band live but they play it up in this one.

Very dated at almost 30 years ago but the sound and picture is exellent. From January 1978 supportign their Plastic Letters album that came out the next month.

So if your looking to fill your collection get it!"
Blondie Live is for Real
Linderov | Royal Oak, MI USA | 03/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This terrific live footage of Blondie shows the band playing a collection of songs from their first two albums, Blondie & Plastic Letters - it pre-dates their big success of Parallel Lines. Some punkers would say it shows the band at their peak. The production is raw but clean, and appears to be one long take, like what you would see if you saw them at a club. This is the ticket to see them that you might have missed back in '78! If you dig the NY punk scene, and/or small-stage rock'n roll performances in general, you will appreciate the performances Deborah Harry and the group provide in this video. It is a must-have for fans of Blondie. Not only that, it also gives a good view of a real band in it's early stages - my daughter and her friends who are into the garage band scene both as a musical genre (e.g., White Stripes, etc.), and to play for themselves, learned a lot about how a band can perform well and have presence on a small stage. Deborah Harry shows how it's done right. The performance is something like a Saturday Night Live performance from the old days. It is something completely different, and more real, than they see in videos on MTV and big-time rock productions (e.g., Rolling stones, Aerosmith, and other huge venue deals) - it's a performance that is not just good, but they can see themselves being able to try for themselves. Put this DVD on and set up for a party for any age group."
It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
Chuck | San Antonio, TX. | 08/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is absolutely the best video of any group I have ever seen, period! I have lent this DVD to young bands just to inspire them! This is the one video which shows Blondie at it's absolute best, and will be immortilized forever! The Video and Audio quality is also unbelieveble for it's time. "It doesn't get any better than this"!"
Live 1978 - Blondie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD of Blondie's original music videos brings back memories of the new wave scene in NYC. Fresh and original, they were and are still one of my favorite bands. Deborah Harry's clothing and hair styles were cool and fun to emulate and their music was heaven to dance to. Check it out!"
