I need reviews of this DVD.
The video for Hold Your Fire is the most amusing, featuring the band and the chick who sings the refrain looking like paper cut-outs flying around the screen for some reason.
I think Mike is referring to Time Stand Still, during which you see someone decided to get overly friendly with a Quantel Paintbox The female singer is Aimee Mann, who did the songs for PT Anderson's Magnolia.
Indeed.What kept Mercury from cramming ALL Rush promo videos in one single DVD (there aren´t THAT many said:
Repeatedly delayed, Rush In Rio is now skedded for release this fall. Ironically enough, it was shot in your hometown!
Do you have any further info on this release? I checked the official Rush site and didn't find anything. I saw Rush at DTE in Detroit during this tour and am eagerly awaiting being able to own this concert on DVD.
Sorry Sergio, but this is simply not true. I just went back and watched the still-powerful "Afterimage" vid and, although I can't cue up the "The Body Electric" vid to compare ['cuz there's no freakin' TtCE DVD!], I remember that vid well and there's no common footage between the two. "Afterimage" was directed by Tim Pope. Perhaps you are confusing the "The Body Electric" and the "The Enemy Within" vids? Those two vids have similar styles and are both directed by Anabel Jenkel and Rocky Morton.
No, I´m not. There *are* some scenes from "The Body Electric" in "Afterimage". Not many, but they are there.
Forgive me--perhaps I should have been less resolute in my assertion that you are mistaken.Well said:
WRT to "Xanadu," are you referring to something other than what is on ESL? If so, re both that and "The Spirit Of Radio" you may be referring to something I've never seen.
Both are from ESL, the famous live performances. "Promos", at the time. It would be cool to see ´em included in Rush Chronicles, don´t you agree?
"[C]ool"? Perhaps.I´m not criticizing Chronicles for that. I´m criticizing it just because of the so-so image/sound quality. As a selection of clips said:
Per my post #s 9 and 13 above, Sergio, you are mistaken.
This evening I watched the "The Body Electric" video again. Conceptually, it tells the very THX-1138-inspired tale of "one android on the run." There is also performance footage of Ged, Alex and Neil playing the song.
None of the footage from this video can be found in "Afterimage."
Perhaps you are thinking that the performance footage we see in the moving sphere in "The Body Electric" is the same as the performance footage of the band playing in "Afterimage." It is not. Look at what the guys are wearing.
Per my first response to your erroneous comment in my post #9, if it is the performance footage that you think is common, you are thinking of the "The Body Electric" and the "The Enemy Within" vids. Those two vids have the same directors (Annabel Jenkel and Rocky Morton) and similar styles. They probably shot both vids during the same shoot and the guys simply didn't change attire. Ged is wearing a black and grey checkered jacket with a black shirt underneath, Alex is wearing a solid blue shirt and Neil is wearing a white shirt. This is not what they are wearing in the "Afterimage" video.
Assuming you have TtCE on VHS or LD, please go back and watch the videos and see for yourself. If Mercury would release TtCE on DVD, you would be able to more readily see this for yourself, should you not have this out-of-print program on VHS or LD.
And of course, that's part of my larger point in this whole freakin' thread: TtCE (and ESL and ASoH) should be on DVD.
