"A must have for any James fan who wants the promotional videos. Some of them, particularly those from Laid and beyond, are worth watching. But many of the early ones and those from the TV are, well, less than "stars." But I enjoyed seeing them nevertheless."
Almost Everything You Need From James

"This DVD is great. It includes most of the bands videos, and quite a few TV appearances from Top Of The Pops, Later, and the Old Grey Whistle Test. All 22 vids have pristine video quality and can be heard in either DTS 5.1 Surround or Dolby 2.0 Stereo. Both sound top notch. Also included are the original version of the "Say Something" video as well as the "Sit Down '98" video. The "Laid" video has a multi angle function if your DVD player supports it.
So many of these videos aired on MTV's 120 Minutes back in the day, while many did not. Regardless, those who managed to tape those videos that aired will be tempted to throw out the VHS tape after watching this DVD, the quality is so much better. After 120 Minutes stopped airing there was really no venue to see a James videos, or in a sad state of today's TV many videos at all. So, even though I've heard many of the later songs, I'm seeing the videos for the first time and they are exciting to watch.
It's refreshing to see the rare videos for "What For" and "So Many Ways" . These videos are from the late 80's and hard to find, but here they are!
The DVD comes with a book with 2 stills from each video, some comments from the band, and the credits.
I say that this DVD contains ALMOST everything you need from James because it does not include anything from the latest release "Hey Ma",since the DVD was released prior that album. At any rate for what's included on this DVD you are getting a bargain in "So Many Ways"!
Oh and one more thing, Amazon is showing the picture for the CD "Fresh As A Daisy - The Singles" not for the DVD "Fresh As A Daisy - The Videos". It does not come in a CD jewel case as pictured, but rather a standard full size DVD CASE!"
