Nik Kershaw videos: thankfully collected

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I've admired Mr. Kershaw's work for decades, and I've always wondered if a video collection existed; and here we have the only one I've found. 10 videos in a German-produced package, with no notes whatsoever. Alrighty, no problemo. Still get to enjoy 45 minutes immersed in the talent of Mr. Nik. All of my favorite songs are here; Wouldn't it Be Good, I Won't Let the Sun, Dancing Girls, Radio Musicola & Elizabeth's Eyes, plus of course the other 5 that devoted fans know by heart.
If you're reading this, you surely know of Nik's talent, so I won't blab on. Newbies probably would never seek out this brand of quirky Euro-new-wave, which is a shame. Nevertheless, a solid DVD of quality that anyone with ears should experience. The videos themselves; ehhhhhh, standard 80's experimentation all over the place. Good, & fluffy.
4 out of 5 stars, minus 1 for no details and no interviews or any suchlike. I would have paid double for a few new/old interviews. A perfect catch if you just needed a hit of the Essential Nik."
