"A fantastic collection of Cheap Trick videos, this one is not to be missed by fans. It spans their career from the early 90's back to the Dream Police era in reverse chronological order. There's Budokan footage on here, as well as their high energy performance of "Ain't That A Shame" on the American Music Awards. A chronicle of every up and down of their careers, you'll enjoy the "in jokes" for serious Cheap Trick fans. There's hokey "concept" videos, bad hair videos, and a nod to Elvis. The best are their live performances, when they simply turn on a camera and play. Don't miss this one, it's a bargain, and a great way to spend an evening with Cheap Trick. END"
A Video History of America's Most Underrated Rock Band!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Great fun. Cheap Trick is America's Greatest Living Rock 'n' Roll Band, and you can watch it all de-evolve (Videos in reverse Chronilogical order) before your eyes. Every Trick in The Book is an accounting of every Cheap Trick video from Pre-MTV days to 1990 (The band continues to impress with over 200 live shows a year!) The video also serves as a great history of Music Videos in general...From good old fashion live performance, to appearences on awards shows, to trying to get a band to conform to a really lame concept video. Through it all, the high voltage power metal pre-punk rock 'n roll of a great band can be experienced! Joe Bob says Five Stars Check it out!!! END"
Great selection of Cheap Trick videos

"Bit of a bummer this one hasn't been updated for a dvd release. Plenty of live cuts and promo videos spanning from the late 1970s to the late 1980s."
VHS RULES (for this release)

"First off, I don't have the dvd version, and I will not be buying it. The reason being: the track listing is the same as the VHS tape that came out 20 years ago!! I still have my VCR & this tape in my collection, it sounds & looks great to these 39 year old eyes. I can't bring myself to spend money on this when the fans have been waiting for 20 years for a video collection from this terrific band, and there's nothing new on this. If one additional video was included, they would have gotten my money. Lord knows there's plenty of promo videos that aren't included on this compilation. Five songs from the 1st album, "Up The Creek", "If You Need Me", "Woke Up With A Monster", "You're All I Wanna Do", "Say Goodbye", "That '70's Song", & "Sick Man of Europe". Not to mention an unending list of tv appearances, etc... AFTER 20 YEARS, throw the fans a bone!"
Cheap Trick EPIC Videos on DVD

"I had been waiting years to have this on DVD, thwarted by Sony's long-standing halt on releasing back catalogue music video programs on DVD, but now, for the first time ever, Sony Music has licensed a video program to an independant label(Britain's "Cherry Red") for DVD reissue. Fear not, North American fans, because the disc has been manufactured primarily for export to North America, and it is NTSC/All Regions. Amazon had initially, incorrectly listed this as a Blu-Ray disc, but rest assured that it is a regular DVD. The compilation is mostly a collection of music videos from the group's 1970's & 1980's heyday on the EPIC label. Now we fans can finally retire our old VHS & Laserdisc editions of the program."
