Picks and Pans Review: Spotlight On...music DVDs
My World Avril Lavigne The petulant punk-pop princess skateboards, brushes her teeth and rides roller coasters. Oh, yeah, the disc also includes five music videos and live tracks from a raucous show in Buffalo last May.
The Farewell Tour Cher This Miami stop on Cher's never-ending "Living Proof" outing (now one year and counting) is a dazzling spectacle of papiermâché elephants, multiple multilayered wigs, trapeze artists and hits like "The Shoop Shoop Song" and "Believe."
Symphony KISS With one-on-one interviews and rare acoustic performances ("Beth"), this comprehensive 22-track, 2-disc set captures KISS at their finest, backed by the 60-piece Melbourne Symphony on hits like "Rock & Roll All Nite" and "Detroit Rock City."
Inside the Songs of Sacred Love Sting This making-the-music set, which includes a stunning, barebones, live rendition of "Every Breath You Take," follows Sting and his crew from rehearsals at his Malibu beach house to an intimate show at L.A.'s Mayan Theatre.
The Greatest Duran Duran Featuring uncensored versions of video classics like "Girls on Film" and "Wild Boys" plus an interactive DVD-ROM with a 30-minute Q & A, lyrics and photo gallery.
The Ed Sullivan Show Featuring the Beatles A must-have for fans, this disc is the only source for all four of the Beatles' 1964 appearances, which haven't aired in their entirety since then. Complete with vintage ads for Pillsbury and Chef Boyardee.
