a word of warning - these dvds from Classic Rock Productions reviewing various bands have had a lot of bad press from fans and the music press. Classic Rock magazine made clear that they have no link or involvement with them a couple of issues ago when readers wrote in complaining about them (although they have a full page advert from them every month!). I seem to remember deeppurple.net saying that they were a mish mash of stuff seen elsewhere and that some material was used without permission of the bands, individuals or copyright holders of live footage.

Icon23 Let the buyer beware

I have read the same sort of comments regarding this series of DVD's. The footage of Rainbow , for example, is from a Rockpalast broadcast and Rockpalast is whispering loudly about taking legal action. The Genesis camp has made similar veiled threats as well.

I would imagine that the big draw for these would be the "unreleased footage" that is purported to abound. As to the quality of the aforementioned footage.....I got a sampler DVD from Classic Rock and some of the clips are dreadful....transfers from VHS and the like.

I will pass...

That's right wolfysmith, I've seen the Thin lizzy one and I got very dissapointed about the review. I do not think it will offer anything worthy.

Thumbs down

stay away from these, they're not worth a cent. Got the Thin Lizzy disc, and the only rare footage is 5 seconds "Waiting For An Alibi" live with Midge Ure on guitar - bootleg obviously. The record reviews are totally trivial, and many false andecdotes and quotes are made by so-called experts. Beware
I hear that John Wetton's management (Martin Darvill) has also taken legal action against them

Robert Fripp/Sid Smith on Classic Rock Productions

Here's a statement I just received from DGM, Robert Fripp's label (the whole thing, for those interested) Sid Smith's comments on Inside Deep Purple are in bold letters.
An interesting read!
Cheers,
Christian

Subject: Statement from Robert Fripp


Dear friends,

We have removed all titles from Classic Rock productions from the DGM shop per the following news from Robert, with more details below from Sid Smith.

Inside King Crimson DVD and CD
A statement from Robert Fripp and DGM

The Inside The Music series is a "pot of gold" for Bob Carruthers & classic rock productions. It addresses a valuable & useful area of popular music studies; but in a cheap, nasty & cynical fashion that exploits everyone & scams the artists, the music & the fans.

Bob Carruthers is a likeable, personable & slippery, evasive character who has upset nearly everyone whose music he has, in some way, presented.

If transparency & accountability are two features of the ethical company, then Classic Rock Productions must be considered ethically challenged in extremis. Given my 38 years of hard experience as a professional within the music industry, Bob Carruthers' company would be better named Classic Crock Productions.

Robert Fripp,
World HQ, April 22nd 2005.


And, from Sid Smith....

Inside King Crimson

In recent days I've received a number of enquiries from KC fans regarding a DVD entitled Inside King Crimson 1972 - 1975 and a CD, Inside King Crimson 1975-1979, Classic Rock Productions.

Potential purchasers should understand that neither item has been approved nor licensed by Robert Fripp, the copyright holder of the music.

As with many other products in this series, fans hoping to see full performances will be disappointed. In order to get around the copyright act, the DVD is marketed as a 'critical review'. In this context, snippets of footage under 20 seconds are deemed legal.

The majority of the content is made up of critical opinions by journalists, musicians, etc. On the Inside King Crimson DVD there are 10 second bursts of music.

The two bonus tracks are recycled from the John Wetton Ultimate Anthology, another product advertised by Classic Rock Direct. John did not give approval of the original release or its use on either of these King Crimson items. John, in common with many other artists featured in this series, has never received any royalties.

Elsewhere, other bands and musicians are becoming increasingly annoyed at the kind of sharp practice that recycles small clips, inferior sound quality and scripts and commentary riddled with inaccuracies.

Caravan are asking their fans to boycott this kind of material.

Their manager, Mark Powell, writes "You may be aware of releases by CLASSIC ROCK PRODUCTIONS on both DVD and CD. The material is in breach of contract or simply illegal. The band have not received royalties. The disputed titles are, 'WITH STRINGS ATTACHED' and 'NOWHERE TO HIDE'.
Despite continual objections, Classic Rock Productions continue to exploit these recordings. These recordings have now been passed to a third party, who licensed them in good faith. These releases are now subject to dispute."

Consequently, DGM is actively taking steps regarding both Inside King Crimson release and urges KC fans NOT to purchase them. Whilst DGM understands that there is a demand for rarely seen and archive footage of the band, Inside King Crimson is not that product.

For several months DGM has been undertaking research on producing a compilation of archive video footage of the band in all its incarnations. It is likely that the resulting DVD will include all the tracks mentioned on the Inside King Crimson DVD (minus constant interruptions and critical asides) in addition to many more performances, several of them seen for the first time. A full press release itemising tracks and performances will be announced once
licensing and clearance negotiations have been concluded. In the meantime, we ask fans to be patient and to avoid the Classic Rock Productions.

Sid Smith
Author of In The Court of King Crimson

A glance at some comments from the proud owners of Classic Rock Productions over at Amazon and elsewhere on the internet gives some clue as to what King Crimson fans can expect if the Inside King Crimson becomes available.

"This is quite simply a con! . . . I was looking forward to seeing the "rare footage of Atom Heart Mother" - it lasts 10-15 seconds!. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!"

"This set of DVD's must be a con, pure and simple. Terrible reviews dumbed down with no new material or insights. . .These discs are advertised as suitable for college students and study groups, I don't get the joke! Best not to buy this drivel, it only encourages more of
the same."

"Oh dear...proclaiming to be the 'definitive critical review', this is nothing more than a DVD of talking heads, most of whom love Pink Floyd just like you or I. The trouble is, you and I probably could have made some more interesting comments!"

Inside Supertramp
"There were little snippets of live performances by Supertramp but this was overshadowed by a running commentary by the reviewers. It lasted just 63 minutes."

It is a commentary documentary and nothing more. . . The total time that you actually see and hear Supertramp is negligible. You're lucky to see about 12 minutes of fragments from past performances (out of 63
minutes running time). (excerpted from prog-nose review)

Inside Nirvana
"Very poor dvd . . . no full live videos . . .just 5 seconds clip from MTV Live and Loud, MTV Unplugged, and Saturday night live."

Inside Deep Purple
"The criticism is along the lines of "Machine Head is good, Who Do We Think We Are isn't", and the revelation that Smoke On The Water is a "classic riff". Nothing the reviewers' commentary will be new to Purple fans, and indeed some is inaccurate or at least incomplete."


Uriah Heep
But the quality of performances and sound/video is quite another matter. . .They were omitted from previous DVD releases due to poor quality of sound/video or due to poor performance or because of poor sound mix (check the version of Lady in Black present), and now we get them on "Ultimate Anthology"!

yep, have it - badly out of sync. But hey - John Wetton in the seventies footage
I Like the Don Kirshner footage on the Kansas "Sail On" box set though - why they didn't release the whole thing - I have no idea.

DGM - Pink Cloud

DGM has become a big thing, originally being a very small independent company run by a handful of dedicated people. They've also had their problems, financially.

I see Pink Cloud Records very close to that original DGM concept, and I really hope, there will be more archive releases like Incense & Peaches in the future.

In the meantime - I can't wait to get a copy of FFF - any news on that by chance?

Later,
Christian

yes Tony, that's cool - that's also one of many aspects that makes this community so cool!
----------------

Here are comments from the DPAS about this release:
(from deep-purple.net)

Classic Rock Productions have announced another dodgy DVD, this time tackling Deep Purple Mk 3. Please be aware that although they are promising interviews with the band, none of the Deep Purple clips or audio material on this title has been cleared by Deep Purple (Overseas) Ltd. And if their past efforts are any guide, the material will be taken from poor quality VHS tapes. As before we advise you approach with extreme caution, or better wait for the official archive DVDs (the first of which is now in production).

Classic Rock Direct merch scans

and here are scans from the merchandise catalogue musicman was talking about.

Front page plus half of page 3.

Just for the record.
David, if you want the original for your archive, drop me an e-mail or a PM and I'll send it to you. If you don't, I'll throw it away!

Cheers,
Christian

Icon47 3 out of 5

This disc is ok, but not essential. There is of course the very recent interview segments with Glenn, but everything else is nothing new. Clips from Cal Jam, the '74 MK.III Hammersmith show, plus some classic MK.II footage (!). Malcolm Dome, Jerry Ewing (ex-Kerrang writers) and John McCoy (ex-Gillan bassist) are some of those interviewed. Without Glenn's participation I probably would have given this a miss, but like me, I'm sure you'll want it for that reason alone Just wish they'd had more of him on the thing, after all he is the only ex-Purple member included and is splashed all over the cover.....like they needed his name to make this somewhat legite!

Running time is just under an hour - attached is a very short clip

Thanks for the snippet Paul. If I'm not mistaken, it looks like that interview with Glenn was done at The Roadmender in Northampton!! So that would be this past February during the Soul Mover tour in the UK!
