"This is just great.
Since the 1983 issue of the 'Non Stop Exotic Video Show' on VHS which became a collectors item, we weren't able to obtain those videos, and now, here they are !
Lead singer Marc Almond (along with Dave Ball) is showing his theatrical skills while presenting the videos in a non stop show of men, women, animals and dwarves ? Really some bizarre person !
And what do we have here ?
So, we have entertain me, bedsitter, frustration, torch, seedy films, secret life, youth, tainted love, memorabilia, sex dwarf, what, say hello wave goodbye.
I really love this one ! This one is my favorite !"
Nice to have on DVD, but after so long, too little TOO LATE?

"Don't get me wrong: I AM A HUGE SOFT CELL/Marc Almond fan! I have ALL their LPs, 12" and CDs and videos and even saw them last year on their ill-fated but BRILLIANT "comeback" American tour - but...I must admit, after waiting literally over TWO DECADES to get this on DVD (the VHS is loooong out of print, but I have it, too!), I feel that they should have ADDED a bit more to this DVD package - c'mon, while the original "NON-STOP" videos are still stunning in their cheap/campy/80s flavor, but why not toss in some SOLO videos from MARC, Dave Ball's GRID, LIVE footage, interviews with the band, MTV stuff, etc.? I don't fault either Marc or Dave...this is just another example of record labels strip-mining their vaults and putting out ANYTHING on DVD, no matter how minimal or incomplete, just to make a dollar on "free" catalog product...that's what it is now, simply PRODUKT. *Better to buy SOFT CELL's stunning return-to-form reunion CD from 2003."
