Movie Reviews

Fleetwood Mac music for rehab members | San Antonio, Texas | 02/03/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This video is perfect evidence of the downfall of the band after the departure of Lindsey Buckingham. The late eighties saw the band become a slick "hair band" with little to offer that was unpredictable. The set list from this 1988 concert filmed at San Francisco's Cow Palace sounds overproduced and anything but live. Moreover, the close-ups shots of Ms Stevie Nicks (that were redone months later after she was unhappy with her appearance) are downright comical. It's obvious they don't match the rest of the footage...What were they thinking. The long and senseless drum solo by Mick Fleetwood in "World Turning" is redundant and again, comical at best. Thank goodness, this wonderfal band redeemed itself with 1998's "The Dance" ( a much better buy). There is a God!! Skip this lemon and go for "The Dance""

"I am a 20-plus year FM & Stevie Nicks fan. A true die-hard lover of this band. But, WHAT WAS THAT! The Stevie close-ups were way overdone, not to mention the Stevie hair! FM had to use two men to replace the irreplaceable Lindsey Buckingham, and to no avail, it just is not the same. Although these men are clearly talented, Lindsey, they are not. Stevie Nicks sounds as if her voice is synthesized on every song, and she rushes through, "Dreams" like she has some other very pressing engagement. Attention Fleetwood Mac fans: PASS ON THIS ONE."
Good music is good music is good music!

"Many reviewers here seem to be more Fleetwood Mac fans and less music fans? I'm a Mac fan also, but was pleasantly surprised with the two new replacements (Billy Burnette and Rick Vito) in this video. One of Fleetwood Mac's strengths is the variation of songs and styles resulting from having three different singers/songwriters in the band. Instead of knocking them, I view Lindsay Buckingham's replacements as a continuation of such (and I am a Lindsay Buckingham fan also). Sure, the video may have been 'overproduced' (is it a video, or is it a concert?), and one could nitpick different areas, but many of the songs sounded better than any previous renditions I'd previously heard. I don't know which is the lead guitarist (Burnette or Vito), but I thought he put on a heckuva show, and is definitely talented. Is he a better guitarist than Lindsay Buckingham? That would be tough call, and isn't that alone reason enough to view this video? The only reason I didn't give this video 5 stars is that it's only 60 minutes long. A few more Mac favorites (heck, I'd be willing to give a few more of the newcomers' songs a try) to stretch it to around 90 minutes would have made it great."
Good but nothing special

"This is a one hour video that was originally released on VHS. Like many of the DVD conversions from VHS, there are no extras on this DVD. The sound is in stereo only, with no 5.1 option. All you get is a menu of the songs. The video quality is pretty good, but not high definition digital video.

On the plus side, the filming of this concert is much better than most newer concert DVD's. Most new concert DVD's are poorly filmed for a quick and cheap release. On newer concert DVD's the camera is always moving around and never focuses on the correct person. This DVD does not suffer from those problems.

In this version of Fleetwood Mac, Rick Vito and Bill Burnette have replaced Lindsey Buckingham. They both look ridiculous in their eighties dress and haircuts. They remind me of the John Stamos character in the TV show, Full House (something my kids put me through in their growing years).

The performance is OK, but not one of Fleetwood Mac's best. It seems like the band is not quite comfortable with the old material.

I think the best and most interesting thing on this DVD is Rick Vito's Another Woman. It is a very good blues tune, that takes us back to Fleetwood Mac's roots (even though Vito has nothing to do with the group's roots).

World Turning is very good and energetic, and features Fleetwood's drum solo and various types of instruments. I always enjoyed his talking drum solo. I am not so sure about this newer innovation of the electronic drum vest.

The group also does the classic Fleetwood Mac song, Oh Well. It is nice to here it played again, but this isn't the greatest version of the song.

As video choices go, I would suggest getting the Dance or Live In Boston first.
