Not Just Another Pretty Face

"For Joe Jackson fans, this DVD is an essential purchase. Joe Jackson's concept videos are very rare, and they're all collected here. The best of these, and the most recognizable, is "Steppin' Out." Joe is in a posh hotel room, composing a song at the piano. The maid is cleaning in the next room. She takes an evening gown out of the closet and clutches it to her, dreaming of a night on the town. Scenes of New York City are interspersed with Joe playing piano in a ballroom, the maid now wearing the gown and dancing with the man of her dreams. In the concept video for "Nineteen Forever, " Joe Jackson is made up as an elderly man, looking through old photographs. At one point, he looks through a peephole in the wall and sees himself on stage as a teenager, wearing a wig and an Elvis-style gold suit, with a trio of plump ladies singing backup. The visual style reminds me of the movie "Eraserhead," and yet this video manages to make sense!Of the live songs, I like the acapella version of "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" the best. The vocals and arrangement are unique and sound great. Both "Hometown" and "Right And Wrong" are live versions originally found on the video "The Big World Sessions." Sorry to say, that video is now out of print. "You Can't Get What You Want ('Til You Know What You Want)" is the only live version duplicated on the "Live In Tokyo" video, which was recently released on DVD. Add in some early live performances and a few more concept videos unavailable elsewhere, and you have a highly collectible Joe Jackson DVD."
A "Must Have" for Joe Jackson fans!

"As a long time lover and follower of Jackson's musical career, I couldn't wait to own this one. He is not often seen on music video, but his performances are colorful. Nice balance of older to newer videos (from "I'm the Man" to "Blaze of Glory", basically a 10 year period--the "A&M years"). For even a casual Joe fan--BUY IT. For a fan to introduce others to Joe Jackson, I would recommend the "Live in Tokyo" DVD instead, as he is at his best in live performances rather than music video."
Almost Perfect

"What a pleasant surprise. I wasn't even aware that this was on DVD, but I snapped it up as soon as I did. I only have a few complaints: First, "Breaking Us In Two" is nowhere to be found on this DVD. Second, it appears to have been mastered from an NTSC conversion of the original PAL footage, so there is some "dot-crawl" noticeable in some of the video panning. Since this is a Region 0 DVD (or so I've been told), I'm wondering why they didn't master it from the PAL originals. Oh well, small complaints. While I'm still disgruntled that there are no serious various-artist DVD video compilations from the 80s, I'm happy to find what I can, when I can. This one's a keeper."

"This DVD is a lot of fun, and brings back some great memories. It is wonderful to see Gary, Dave and Graham strumming, pounding and plucking along to some of the best songs of the late Seventies "New Wave." If you love Joe Jackson as much as I do, buy it! The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it isn't long enough."
