A triumph! Fantastic!

"Preordered this when it was first announced...being both a Warhol fan and a fan of anything Britta Phillips or Dean Wareham are involved in. The screen tests are breathtaking, backed by one of the most eclectic and satisfying soundtracks I could have imagined. The new studio versions of the Luna songs are fantastic, but of special note are the original compositions that Dean & Britta have come up with. If this is hinting at the direction of Dean & Britta's next album then I am EXTREMELY anticipating it. The covers are also of note, especially Velvet Underground's 'I'm Not a Young Man Anymore'.

BTW, my favorite screen tests are Ann Buchanan and Freddy Herko. However, they all are excellent.

"What a wonderful DVD! I watched the live performance at The Andy Warhol Museum last year and could not wait for the DVD release. I was not disappointed, the packaging is great, the booklet is so informative and beautiful and the essays tell you about each sitter of the screen tests. The DVD gives you the option of with the music or like silent like it was originally produced by Warhol.
Perfect to relax to or put on in the background of a party.
Defiantly recommend for anyone who is a fan of either Dean and Britta or Andy Warhol."

"It's wonderful to have some of Warhol's screen tests available for the first time on DVD and the sound track by Dean & Britta on here makes this a perfect marriage of film and music. There's some breath taking stuff on here. While everything on here is noteworthy, particularly haunting is Eddie Sedgwick's screen test with the beautiful and sad "It Don't Rain in Beverly Hills."

The DVD is beautifully packaged with an accompanying book filled with info on the composition of music and information about the screen test subjects, as well as general info on the whole project from the Warhol museum curators. Dean Wareham is particularly insightful and forthcoming on his essay of the process of recording the music and his fondness(?) of the Warhol era and its subjects.

Go see the performance live if you get the opportunity."
Right On! Incredible DVD!

"I agree with everyone who says this is a great work. It's a little clichèd to say Dean & Britta's soundtracks 'capture' the subjects - the music just plain fits. Now c'mon, Warhol Museum - give us more! more! More AW Screen Tests along with D&B! Yeah! (& while I'm at it - please please get Chelsea Girls out!)
