Built around Bryan Adams' Ireland show, Live at Slane Castle, Ireland is just one of the stops on his massive world tour in 2000. Adams, the gravely voiced "Groover from Vancouver", rose to prominence in the 1980s with rock hits such as "Cuts Like a Knife" and "Summer of '69", but has more recently been transformed into something of a Hollywood troubadour, scoring hits with songs such as "Everything I Do, I Do It For You" (from Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves) and "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?" (from Don Juan DeMarco). Flanked by drummer Mickey Curry and guitarist Scott on guitar, the trio perform amidst the stately surroundings of Slane Castle. Bryan and his band cover most of the singer's vast repertoire, including "18 Til I Die", "Heaven", "Run to You", "Can't Stop This Thing We Started", "Best of Me" and his recent hit with Mel C, "When You're Gone" (for which the indefatigable songstress pops in unexpectedly for a croon). Adams proves he is a confident and charismatic host, bringing fans up on stage to sing with him, cracking jokes and generally behaving like soft rock's "Mr. Nice Guy". Other musical guests are drafted in throughout the show, namely Davy Spillane and Chicane's Nick Bracegirdle. The crowd show their appreciation by singing well-known lines when the band fall purposefully silent and holding their lighters aloft for the more poignant moments. There are not a lot of musical adventures in Adams' music--just slightly anachronistic and often clichéd formulas--but for the 56,000 people watching at Slane Castle (many of them surprisingly young and enthusiastic), it certainly seems to do the trick. On the DVD: though the concert gives a good profile of Adams and his music, the extras on the DVD struggle to be quite so entertaining. The accompanying booklet is colourful enough with a few bad photos of Bryan inside, but is intensely uninformative. On the disc there are backstage sections, which show him rehearsing to a crowd of two, and the "nerve wracking" moments just before he goes on stage. As insights go, these are banal to say the least. The interview section also misses a great opportunity to ask the singer about a 20-year career full of big hits, concentrating instead on such racy and profound topics as pre-gig nerves and favourite song. The gallery of photography--some shot by the excellent Anton Corbijn--is tastefully done and there is also the option to view five of the songs from the 360-degree static view, a facility that is a novelty but hardly captures the moment. There is an opportunity to go "interactive" with Bryan by placing the disc into your PC.--Paul Sullivan

IN 1962 FOUR YOUNG MEN JOHN LENNON, PAUL McCARTNEY, GEORGE HARRISON AND RINGO STARR CAME TOGETHER TO FORM THE 20TH CENTURY MUSICAL PHENOMENON KNOWN AS, THE BEATLES. The band stormed Europe in 1963, and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame, that in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil, led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music. Master storyteller and OscarÂ® winner*, Ron Howard, explores this incredible journey in his own unique way: How did The Beatles do this? How did they cope with all the fame and pressure? How did they not only survive, but go on to revolutionise popular music? With original interviews, footage, staggering live performances, and the intimate study of character that Ron Howard is known for, he puts us right inside this extraordinary adventure, answering the question everyone always wants to know: What was it like to be there?!!
It will be many years before Journey's music will be known as anything but soupy 70s arena rock and embarrassingly overwrought 80s pop. Journey: Greatest Hits 1978-1997 will do little to hasten the band's salvation. In fact, if it weren't such a gift to those who love the music, a case could be made for suppressing the disc's video content, so unimaginative is most of the directing and so damning is the attire (or lack thereof). But even if sweaty guys running around in tight jeans and no underwear isn't really your thing, the disc has its treats. There's MTV nostalgia, pure and simple--"Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)", with its mimed quayside performance and strutting high-heeled model, is perhaps the quintessential "What were they thinking?" video. We also get exciting glimpses of the early band (with keyboardist Gregg Rolie passing the lead-vocal torch to newcomer Steve Perry) kicking out classics such as "Feeling That Way", "Lights" and "Just the Same Way". Many of the songs feature live audio as well as video, and it's here, most notably in "Who's Crying Now" and "Stone in Love", that lead guitarist Neal Schon cuts loose with some extended licks. An unexpected pleasure is 1996's heartfelt ballad "When You Love a Woman". The guys are aging gracefully, Steve Smith's drumming is better than ever, and the video itself boasts the most tasteful production of the bunch. --Michael Mikesell
Respect is something that is earned and cannot be bought - having been in the music business for over 35 years. Gordon Giltrap has earned that respect in abundance significantly from his peers. Legendary names like Jimmy Page Richie Blackmore Brian May Bert Jansh Martin Taylor and even Sir Cliff Richard have nothing but praise for a man considered by many to be one of the country's finest acoustic guitarists and composers. The DVD recorded live at Huntingdon Hall is testimony to this legendary guitarist's gifts as a composer and live performer.
Chuck Berry has stamped his musical personality on 3 decades of music. Rightly revered today for hits like 'Maybellene' 'Roll Over Beethoven' and 'Johnny B. Goode' this concert is a testament to the raw power that makes Chuck Berry the true king of rock n' roll!

Live from the Royal Albert Hall Clive Anderson introduces a sensational concert celebrating 75 years of classic MGM film musicals. John Wilson and his hand-picked orchestra including superb and diverse vocal talent celebrate the golden age of Hollywood musicals with songs from the great movies including Thee Wizard of Oz Meet Me in St Louis Seven Brides for Seven Brothers High Society Gigi and Singin' in the Rain. Joined by an array of talented vocalists including Curtis Stigers Kim Criswell Seth MacFarlane Sir Thomas Allen and Sarah Fox. Wilson sends the feel-good factor soaring with a medley of popular songs including Get Happy Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Wonderful Wonderful Day Steppin' Out With My Baby Lover Come Back to Me and a host of other sumptuous delicious numbers. Amazingly although all the original orchestral parts were lost Wilson has painstakingly reconstructed the original scores. The result was the highlight of the 2009 BBC Proms season - a unique live performance of these beloved songs.

Over the course of more than two decades, Birmingham's UB40 have become global ambassadors for reggae, a journey captured perfectly on The Collection. This programme is split into two main sections: a 26-track video collection and a documentary detailing their 20th anniversary concert in September 2001. Forgoing chronology in favour of a more random approach, the video selection is slightly disjointed on a visual level, leaping from decade to decade within the space of a couple of tracks. While they have never made a truly great video (most feature the band lip-synching in various places around the world) UB40 have certainly been prolific over the years. "One In Ten" and "Food for Thought", their earliest work, represented the sound of young, multicultural Britain just as well as the more lauded Specials. And while there have perhaps been a few too many covers in recent times, it is hard to deny the effectiveness of "Red, Red Wine" and "Kingston Town". Much of the success of the documentary depends on how interesting you find infinite shots of pony-tailed men wheeling flight cases, but it does provide an insight into the background to such an event (which took place two days after the World Trade Centre attacks), if not the band themselves. There is also some excellent live footage, featuring guests such as Chrissie Hynde, Freddie McGregor and Sly & Robbie--proof that, despite the critical sneers, UB40 have taken their place amongst the reggae greats. On the DVD: UB40: The Collection has excellent digital sound, while the picture is unsurprisingly far better on the later tracks. The documentary and concert footage, too, are excellent, the latter benefiting from a multi-camera approach. Seemingly designed primarily for DVD rather than simply a VHS upgrade, this impressive package is polished and viewer friendly. There are several interactive elements, including a year-by-year look at the band's history. --Phil Udell
