Bloodshot label and Artists DVD experience

"This official Bloodshot DVD has both songs and stories sections with a lot of interesting , funny and excellent parts to check out . The stories section has very good mini-docu's including one on Chicago's Sundowners trio.It's hard to believe these guys played gigs 3-5 nights a week for 35 years... and then hung out together on their days off to golf , fish etc. !
The other features are cool including the Chicago Chik-a Go Go cable dance show , touring with Ryan Adams , a Meat Purveyors show experience and the Yard Dog Barbecue which looks like a lot of fun. The videos of both Graham Parker and Jon Rauhouse with his tasty band and featured singers, is in a club type setting while the Wayne Hancock , Riptones , Bobby Bare, Detroit Cobras , Deadstring Brothers and others are pro shot song videos. The Paul Burch and Sadies videos, 2 apiece , are minimal video productions with maximum musical content. Kelly Hogan sounds great as always and too bad there isn't more of her singing on the DVD. She is easily qualified to replace all these poptart divas we are bombarded with .Jon Langford who does the stylized artwork on the Bloodshot comp. covers is an excellent master of Ceremonies featured in a few spots.
I fast forwarded through Scroat Belly, Trailer Bride ( cool saw solo ! ) and the Mekons as it just seemed like a blur of thrashiness that sounded pretty much the same . Maybe others would enjoy it more than we did.
Everything else was of pretty high musical content and very enjoyable . Hopefully there will be a volume 2 in the future from the great folks at Bloodshot
