Disappointing quality sound and picture.
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This is a disappointing set as a lot of the film clips are poor quality. There are some good ones,like a color film clip where the Who perform live,but the many poor quality ones spoil it.
For example,there is a poor live performance by Cream which has terrible sound and poor picture quality. There is a James Brown clip(filmed in B&W)where he is obviously miming on his own. Compare this to the Ed Sullivan DVDs where James Brown performs live with a huge band backing him and you can see that this is a very average collection of DVDs. I would recommend either the Ed Sullivan,Music Scene or Hullabaloo Music DVDs as they are much better quality than this mediocre set."
What a Rip Off !!!!

"40 or so minutes per disk of footage mainly taken from German TV. Experimental camera techniques have not dated well. Content is widely available elsewhere at much better value for your money, compilation probably put together by an accountant."

"If you like lipsinking you will like this set. There are some live performances but most are TV show performances with lipsinking. I was disappointed."
When Music Meant Something

"These videos really took me back to a time when music was intertwined with politics and social change. Although some of the footage is black and white, I had never seen Blue Cheer or Steppenwolf in their prime. A few clips are fuzzy, but they appear to be really old; Stevie Wonder looks like he's twelve or so. Most enjoyed the Who live; Otis Redding's last appearance (also live) before his death; a very handsome Ray Davies; Percy Sledge singing When A Man Loves A Woman; and a terrific Ike and Tina. Altogether, a valuable archival product. Casey's really a pretty sympatico presenter."
