My DVD & Blu-Ray Collection Part 12 – Music

I thought I’d go through my DVD collection to show you what I have, and this video is part 12, looking at the rest of my music collection. Feel free to comment if you share any of my tastes. 🙂

  • The Shadows – The Final Tour. They’re a great instrumental band. I love their sound a great deal, they always sound brilliant.
  • Slade – The Very Best Of. They’re a wonderful glam rock band. I’ve got a DVD of their music videos and a few live performances.
  • Status Quo, one of my favourite all time bands:
    • XS All Areas – Greatest Hits, which has got a lot of their classic music videos.
    • The One And Only Status Quo, which has got a number of TV performances they did on there. There’s 4 different shows on there, including a Top Of The Pops 2 special.
    • Live At The BBC. This has all of their Top Of The Pops performances and a live show they did for the BBC as well, and some extra bits and pieces.
    • 40 Years Of Status Quo. This is a documentary about the band, including footage of them appearing on Coronation Street. Probably the only time I’ve ever watched the show, because I’m not interested in soaps. But when you get a band like that on there, it’s worth watching just for once.
    • Accept No Substitute! – The Definitive Hits. This is all of their music videos, way beyond the original DVD from earlier, as they’ve obviously done more since that one was released. But I’ve kept both of them anyway.
    • Just Doin’ It! Live. This is a boxset with a CD and a DVD of a live concert as well as a little documentary, and the video of their single The Party Ain’t Over Yet, which is a great song. And you’ve got various other bits and pieces included too, including a booklet with various photos from the show, a poster with all the band standing together, some little window stickers, a setlist, some little postcards with photos of the band, and another little sheet with the list of songs on the DVD on one side, and an advert for the 40th anniversary DVD on the other side.
    • Live At Montreux. This is another great live concert, good fun. They always pack plenty of songs into their shows, so you always get to hear the hits. And there are certainly plenty of classics by these guys, no doubt about that.
    • Hello Quo! This is a very interesting documentary about the band, with lots of unseen and behind the scenes footage.
    • The Frantic Four Reunite. These are a couple of live shows, as it was great to see the original members of the band finally get back together again. It was very much appreciated by all the fans, and they still sound great together. And this is obviously the final time you’ll get to see them together, so they were very special concerts.
    • Aquostic. This is a live show they did to go with their acoustic albums, which were very good. I think they were a very interesting spin on some of their classic songs.
  • Suzi Quatro – Leather Forever: The Wild One Live. Suzi is another classic glam rock artist. Here I’ve got a live show – not the best in the world, I think she could sound better than this. But as it’s the only DVD she’s released, I’m happy for it.
  • Sweet – Action, This is another classic glam rock band as well. And this is a boxset containing 3 DVDs. It’s got their music videos, TV appearances and live stage performances. Some of the later stage performances are of a later lineup of the band, which doesn’t quite sound as good. The original version of the band were definitely the best, and they sound great here. It’s a comprehensive DVD collection to have. I didn’t know a lot of these songs before I bought this, but I thought I might like it based on the ones I did know. And it was well worth it.
  • Marc Bolan & T. Rex – Born To Boogie. This is a fun movie, and the DVD has got a ton of extras on it as well. Marc Bolan died very young, and it’s a great shame, because he had a very bright future ahead of him.
  • The Who. This is an absolutely classic band that I love, so I’ve got a lot of DVDs by them that they’ve released.
    • Maximu R&B Live. This is a compilation of some live performances over the years.
    • The Kids Are Alright. This is a documentary and performance compilation charting The Who’s development over the years. And it’s very interesting, plus there’s some very interesting extras on there as well, it’s really well put together.
    • Amazing Journey – The Story Of The Who. This is a couple of documentaries about the band, which are really interesting. There’s some nice extras on here too, such as a rare performance from The Railway Hotel in 1964.
    • The Story Of Tommy. This is a classic album, with a very good story and a very good set of songs, including Pinball Wizard of course and See Me, Feel Me. So the story behind it all is very interesting.
    • Live In Texas ’75. One of their relatively early shows.
    • Live At Kilburn 1977. All these DVDs are very well restored, they’ve always got good sound quality, and they’ve always got a few extras on it as well. So they do make the effort to make them look and sound their best.
    • Tommy And Quadrophenia Live. These are a couple of shows where they play those entire albums, sometimes with a bit of video footage behind them to help tell the story and link it all together. And there are also some encores where they perform their classic hits as well. So you do get your money’s worth if you go to one of those shows for sure.
    • The Vegas Job – Live In Vegas. Not such a long show, so not quite so many songs in there, but it’s still good.
    • The Who & Special Guests – Live At The Royal Albert Hall. You’ve got people like Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller getting involved here, which is a very interesting touch, and something a bit different.
    • Quadrophenia – Live In London. Another performance from that album, again with some other classic hits on the end.
    • Live In Hyde Park. One of their most recent shows, and it’s good fun. Again, I’ve never seen these guys live, but I’d certainly love to, because I know they’re really great at what they do.

And that’s it! We’ve finally reached the end of all my DVDs! I’m gonna do one more little video with some that I’ve bought very recently in the run-up to Christmas but, other than that, that’s the end. So if you’ve been with me through all of these, thank you ever so much. I know it’s gone on a bit, but that what happens when you build a collection up over about 20 years. It’s a lot, I’m very pleased with everything I have. It gives me plenty to watch and enjoy over and over again. I think I prefer DVDs to streaming when it comes to keeping things, because obviously on streaming services things tend to come and go, whereas we’ve DVDs you’ve always got them. It’s always nice to have physical copies I think.

So thank you very much for going through all of this with me. If you like any of the things I’ve shown you, feel free to comment! 🙂
